Too Matchy Matchy?

I think light blue bridesmaids and navy groomsmen will look fine.  The only thing that really gets too matchy matchy for me is when groomsmen wear a tie or vest that is the same color as the bridesmaids dresses.

I think it’ll be fine, plus navy is a great suit to have in your closet.  What colour ties did you get to go with the navy suits?

@HoneysHoney:  Yellow and blue is a combination best left to hockey sweaters and letterman jackets – good decision.  The ties sound good.  White shirts, I’m assuming?

@HoneysHoney:  It won’t look like a wall if they’re different blues – which it sounds like they definitely are.

And yes, if they’re in white shirts, white linen pocket squares are definitely the way to go.

Oh I think they will look just lovely! I’m jealous as I was dying for a pretty baby blue dress and navy suits!

@HoneysHoney:  French cuffs (double cuffs) right?

This should look really cute, but it will depend a little bit on the tones of the blues, IMO. Although navy tends to go pretty well with most colors! I think you can choose a dominant flower color that really pops against both blues and it’ll look great.

You know what would be too matchy matchy? Those powder blue suits from the ’70s, lol.

I think your color combinations sound nice, not too matchy matchy at all 🙂

@sweet5k:  Wait, is that not supposed to happen?  That’s been the way at literally every wedding I’ve ever gone to in my memory!  Maybe it’s regional?

OP, I think it would be overpowering if the actual suits and the dresses were all the same color.  (Unless that color was black or something else very neutral.  But that’s not the point.)  As the suits are navy and the dresses are light blue, I think you’re OK. 🙂

Sounds great!  Classic, informal and preppy.
