I love you guys because I know you’ll help me!! I was originally planning to have the guys in suits, rather than tuxes, with blue colored ties to match the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. But then I started thinking perhaps my dress and the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are too formal, not casual enough, for the look. The wedding in general is a typical semi-formal event, but with a rustic/elegant theme (garden ceremony/barn reception). Which do you think would look better? I’m fine with either – just need to know which works better, or if it doesn’t matter. Here’s my dress (which I’m still anxious about in general):
Here are the BMs dresses:

I prefer tuxes, but I think your idea of suits would work well with your setting, gown, and bridesmaid dresses.

Just re-read you post and had to change my answer 🙂
I like suits better. But for your setting either would be fine.

First, your dress looks BEAUTIFUL! I love it, it gives you a great shape!
I think for your setting, I would go with your idea for the suits. Your Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are short too, so definitely not too formal in my opinion

I personally prefer suits, and as long as they’re not made of a casual material, they should look perfectly formal next to your dress and the BMs’ dresses. Also, definitely a better choice, given your theme. Have you thought about choosing three-piece suits (i.e. with vests)? I think they look extra snazzy.
One thing to remember about suits (this is my current dilemma)–you can’t usually rent them, so the guys will have to purchase theirs, which tends to cost more than a tux rental.

Thanks girls!! My Maid/Matron of Honor was confused by the suit concept, so it made me worried. Appreciate the input!

I am also doing suits So suits all the way they are a great way to be casual and formal all at once without the over the topness of tuxes. Based on your setting i think suits are best just be careful the material isnt too casual
