    Would you consider doing a different pocket square for the groomsmen & the groom?

    I like the idea of a solid charcoal square for the guys (point at the top) & a solid black one for the groom (also pointed at the top).

    @medbride:  I assume you meant you are going with a pocket square instead of a boutonniere?

    Is your event very formal? You’re showing the groomsmen in a tuxedo and the groom in a suit, which would be unusual.

    I like the gray/pink pindot the best since they’re wearing solid suits and shirts. My second choice would be one of the bordered squares with a colored edge (not black or charcoal). I think it fits best with the casual plaid of the tie. I also think a flat fold is your best bet here. The tie is fun and casual, but the point fold is a bit fussy.

    Don’t wear a grey pocket square with a charcoal suit.  There is not enough contrast, and it will just look kind of muddy.

    I agree with Duncan, I think more contrast would be nice.

    I also like the idea of the groom having a different colour pocket square. Maybe a pink one for the groom and violet border squares for the other guys? And flat fold, absolutely! Maybe it’s just me but the point fold seems more like something an elderly gentleman would wear.

    I really like the pink. There is a lovely blue colour in the tie too, I would pick that colour out.

    I don’t think the groom should wear a gray pocket square with a gray suit.  Plus, with the different pattens, I think the gray and pink pocket square would clash with the ties.  

    I like the pink pocket squares.
