Think carefully about this one. We are going with the brown striped tuxedos from MWH as well, and we also were a little hesitant about the color but since chocolate/truffle is our secondary color, we just went ahead with it. As long as you notify MWH of the color change at least 2 weeks before your wedding, they will not charge you for the switcheroo, which I am sure they mentioned to you. I think it sounds fine. Honestly, I don’t think it will be the equivalent of ruffled tuxedos! But if you are unsure about it and would feel more comfortable in black, go for it. The only think I don’t like about those tuxedos are the pleated pants. They are awful and our guys aren’t wearing the jackets (we are having a beach wedding which is a little more informal than a standard wedding), so the balloon pleating is very obvious and I hate it. But I think your tuxes will look great!

my BIL & his groomsmen wore a brown tux with the ruffles about 30yrs ago and we still make fun of him about it – BUT not because it was brown, but because of the ruffles. avoid the 1970’s ruffles and they should look great!

We are going with the MWH brown tuxes too.  I love them and think that they will go beautiful with your dusty rose BM dresses.  They are a little untraditional but seem to be very popular right now.  So who cares if you look at it 10 years from now and go “wow that wedding was so 2009?”  I mean every wedding eventually looks dated.  Also, it goes with your theme.  I think balck tuxes are very formal and that is not the look you are going for.

I agree with Carbon Girl- everything in your wedding will look dated 20 yrs from now. I love the brown tux idea. Everyone goes with the traditional black tux, so I am considering a dark grey pinstripe suit instead.

Go against the grain you won’t regret it!
