Groom: Black or White. 

Bridesmaids: Pink or Chocolate brown. Champagne Can be very washed out in photos unless it’s a little darker. 

Just my opinion.

Neshell34:  I’m planning a champagne/gold and navy blue wedding.

Men are in a navy tailsuit with a champagne waitcoat/vest, then champagne cravat for groom’s men, and navy for groom.

My MOH (only one BM) will wear navy floor length I think.

My mum wants to wear a floor length dress too, either in a champagne-y gold colour.

Is that your dress? It’s gorgeous!!!!

I would personally go for champagne dresses with oink flowers.

Our colors are champagne and plum. The girls are wearing plum dresses and the men black tuxedos with black vest and tie. My FI is wearing an ivory vest and tie, and it has some specks of champagne in it (to me anyway) so that ties in the the champagne. I wouldn’t recommend champagne/gold dresses for your girls because it’s not a great color on everyone. Maybe chocolate dresses and go with champagne accessories and pink flowers? For the guys I would still do black tuxes.

Neshell34:  wow, your dress is a show stopper!  I would put your BMs in pink.  As a PP mentioned, champagne tends to wash some people out. For the gentlemen, I think you should opt for a classic black tux.  Vests remind me of awkward teen boys at senior prom.  If you look to celebrities on the red carpet or at formal events, you rarely see a colored vest. A classic black tux will never go out of style.

Neshell34:  Our colors are also chocolate brown, pink and ivory (and some champagne). Our men are wearing black tuxes (some with chocolate brown ties, my son with pink tie, and my groom with ivory tie). The girls are wearing chocolate brown dresses with pink flowers in their bouquets.

Tuxedos are black or midnight blue, which appears black, so it doesn’t matter which you choose.  The exception is the ivory dinner jacket, which is worn with black or midnight blue trousers.  I wouldn’t go with the ivory DJ.  The shirt is ALWAYS white.

Black or midnight blue.   Everything you ever wanted to me about tuxedos is here:

What does the groom want to wear?

I’d do groom in black tux with ivory vest and tie and white shirt. Groomsmen in black tuxes with black or chocolate vests/ties and bridesmaids in pink with chocolate sashes

Neshell34:  The very purpose of men’s evening wear is to be staid, and allow the ladies attre to take centre stage.  That’s one of the reasons it’s strictly black and white.  The tuxedos will not outshine, or obstruct the dresses, so long as they are classic.  Rather, they will serve their intended purpose of providing an understated, elegant backdrop to the ladies’ gowns.

Flower girls are often white, or she could be in pink, or chocolate.  Why not give her the three colour options and ask her what she like most?  That will also reduce the likelihood she refuses t wear it on the day, giving her mother a giant hassle.

n general, the best bet with rented tuxes is to go with shawl collars and cummerbunds, because the vests are rarely (read: never) correctly shaped, shawl collar jackets are more traditional and usually have correct styling (e.g. one button), and a cummerbund is the most appropriate choice of waist covering with a shawl collar tuxedo.  One rarely finds peak lapel jackets among rentals.
