    Cream is a very difficult suit colour.  when it’s good, it’s lovely, but you have to look long and hard for a good fabric in that colour.  The good options tend to also be at high price points.  I have a beautiful cream/tan/sand/beige suit, that was a miracle find at a thrift store – I wouldn’t really have gone looking for one.  Based on the maker, and the details, it was at least $1200 new, and based on the fabric, likely more like $1500.  (I got it for $10!)  My point being, a good beige suit is not an easy thing to track down.

    I also don’t think it’s a really good choice for suits with that dress.  It’ll make a good accent, but be kind of blah as a prominent colour.

    Light grey, on the other hand, is classic, casual suit colour, and that means there are lots of good options to be found.  It’s also going to have a little more presence and pnache than cream.  Plus, if they guys are interested in buying, light grey is a more versatile suit, plus is available at wider range of prices for them.

    A light grey three piece, maybe with peak lapels, is an awesome look for the groom at a less formal, but not informal, weddding.

    majormommy8:  I am a blush divina bride too! I voted light grey, I think it’ll look lovely along with the dress. My men are wearing a charcoal grey suit. Do you have a picture of you in your dress?

    With the dusty blue – I bet a charcoal grey would look better than light grey.
