Our wedding is going to be a fall brunch wedding (hopefully outside, if the weather agrees!). My fiance is going to wear a tweed jacket, and our bridesmaids will probably be in this dress (in navy blue):
My brother has been working at the Men’s Warehouse for about five months and now believes he knows everything about how to plan a wedding (it’s a little ridiculous). I told him the other day that I was considering having the groomsmen wear sweaters (like in the picture below), and he told me that it was too casual to look good with the bridesmaids dresses, and that I was being ridiculous.
What do you guys think? In this case, would sweaters look too casual? Do you guys have any better ideas? What are the groomsmen wearing at your wedding?
Edit: my fiance is totally on board with the sweaters, but he’s a pretty casual guy. 🙂

I love the look. Our dudes were casual too – no jackets, just yellow shirts and blue bow-ties, with their own black pants and shoes.
As long as the rest of your wedding has a relatively casual vibe, it will definitely work!

I think it could look great!! But if your FI doesn’t like it, I think his opinion is worth giving in for. He wants to go more formal, not less, and they are his groomsmen. What does he propose?
I bet he’ll come back around to sweaters or something similar (vests?). Could he picture it with a nice collared shirt under it and a tie?
I just can’t imagine what he’s going to come up with that will go with what everyone else is wearing but not upstage the tweed jacket. I don’t think pushing on these kinds of issues usually works, I find it better to say “Okay honey, could you come up with a few pictures of what you think would be good and then we’ll pick one out together?”
