    Is there an other? LOL. I think you should nix the vests all together. IMO it looks to much like prom, to matchy matchy. I think they would look really good/sharp in black suits with white shirts, white handkerchief and the tie you have and fuschia flowers. But u have to go with what you invision your wedding to be. Good luck.  πŸ™‚ Here’s an example. Pic is kinda hard to see. Sorry.

    Personally, I hate the look of colored/matching vests – it reminds me of prom. I do like the look of the navy suit with the striped tie.

    I think I’d go with the navy suits.

    I’m of the view that you don’t want too many colours in your whole bridal party (unless you’re doing it deliberately and having the whole mismatched thing).  Having the suits as navy would mean you would be only using three colours altogether, which looks simpler – it would also mean that you would stand out more and the pink would totally pop.

    The one thing I’m not sure about is if you’re intending to have the groom in a different colour suit, since you only asked about the groomsmen’s suits and not the groom’s. In that case I’d still have the groomsmen’s suits in navy and the groom’s in light grey. That way, from a distance the dominant colour would be navy, with smaller amounts of white, then grey, then pops of pink. Say you have 3 BM and 3 GM the proportions would be about 65% navy, 20% white, 10% grey, 5% pink – which are good proportions from a design point of view.

    @Julielynn83:  I love that tie!!!

    I voted Navy Suit with the stripped tie and the fushia flower. And I’m with the other girls that vote no vest. The guys will be more comfortable and I think it looks much better πŸ™‚

    I don’t have the fushia but I do have a photo of my girls in a navy dress (well marine from davids but close to navy) and the guys in a dark grey tux.  I think the fuschia would add a great pop of color.  If you did a vest I would do grey to match the tux to keep it from looking too prom like. 

    PS – I have no idea what my brother did to cause my SIL to give him that look.

    @Julielynn83:  I would go with dark gray tuxes and the blue and fuschia ties, it will be a nice contrast to your girls navy blue dresses! πŸ™‚ Love the fuschia and navy blue, so summery and pretty! πŸ™‚
