Hi I’m getting married on Valentine’s Day 2015 my colors are canary yellow and turquoise (lol) I love those colors together but everyone cringe to hear those colors for a Valentine’s Day Wedding. I was wondering are there any other ideas for what color tux my Groom should be in next to my light Ivory dress? or what color tux should the groomsmen be in next to the ladies in their yellow and turquoise dresses?

dark grey looks universally great.

stephncollins: Thanks, I was thinking gray for the groomsmen with yellow ties and as for the bestman gray with a turquoise tie because the ladies will be yellow then turquoise then yellow and I was also thinking of the groom being in light ivory with yellow vest and tie. does that sound overboard?

deanna264: We all have to be careful that we do not start to think of the groom and groomsmen as accessories for the women.
If you already have the women in two different colored dreses, I would find a tie that has both colors in it rather than have two different colored ties as well. It could start to look a bit spotty. If the men wear vests keep them the same color as their tuxedos.
An ivory tux for the groom does sound overboard to me. I like a more traditional look. I suggest the groom also wear a grey tux and vest but have him be the one with a different tie.

I was also thinking gray, or maybe a midnight/navy blue if you wanted more than one shade of blue. But gray is always a good choice 🙂

Our colors are green and white, but all the guys in our wedding party, and the groom, are wearing classic black and white tuxes. I’m not a fan on trying to incorporate the wedding colors into the men’s wardrobes.

i think it’s always better to keep it simple. dark grey tuxes, colored ties for the groomsmen, and a more classic look for the groom always looks amazing – dark grey if you go that route. I don’t like colored vests on men (looks a little prom to me!). I was just in a wedding where we wore emerald dresses, the groomsmen work black tuxes with black vests and emerald ties, and the groom wore a black tux, black vest, and silver tie.

Your colors don’t mean that everyone must be in one or the other- you must have some neutrals or your wedding party will potentially look like… a chorus from a broadway show. I also think dark grey is a great way to go, let your girls be the colorful ones and pick it up in the guys ties and accessories. I would also let the blue be your primary color and keep the yellow to accents.
