CelticBeachBride:  I think you made the right decision to stick with grey vests for all the guys. Prom is over and done with, as you said.

Personally, I would pick striped or patterned ties that work well with the grey suits and incorporate your wedding colors, and have them all wear a different tie. Google pics where the groomsmen are all wearing different, but coordinating ties. It’s a great look.

Does he need his groomsmen to wear different ties than the guys on your side? I honestly don’t think they need to, but he may want them instantly recognizable as groomsmen, not bridal party members. If so, they could wear ties that do not have the teal in them.

CelticBeachBride:  could you find ties that are predominantly grey with a hint of turquoise for the grooms side, then another pattern in predominantly turquoise for your side? Or one side do ties, and the other side do bow ties?

Put the groom, and groomsmen in wedding ties, and the Bridesmen in navy ties with small, repeating patterns, like pindot.  Put the groom in Houndstooth, and the groomsmen in glen check, or vice versa.  Or, put the Bridesmen in bow ties.  All of these can be had from thetiebar.Com for $15 a pop.

Avoid a champagne tie, unless the groom genuinely prefers one, as it will wash out.
