Im getting in a bit of a fluster trying to work out who shoudl wear what.
So far we have groom in white tie, and 2 groomsmen/best men in yellow ties with a white stripe.All 3 in the same suits.
FI also has 2 brothers, who will be helping out ushering etc. They can wear thier own suits. Well get them bouts. should they also have the same tie?
And tehn what about my dad- should he be in the same tie also?
Other options are to just let teh brothers wear whatever, or get them similar yellow ties but not the exact same, maybe just plain yellow?
Urgh, this is one of those really silly small decisions that weddings somehow make ENORMOUS hassles out of!

You are going to hate hearing this, but with a year to go, you will probably change your colors a bunch of times!
I think if the ushers are in their own suits, they do not need the same tie unless you really want them to have it.
Most weddings I have seen have the dads in a bow tie and vest (or cumber-bun) but you can certainly have him match if you want to.
Basically, there are no real rules about it! Just make sure you have a palette that you like and have fun 🙂

hah, I voted for saving money (and headaches) – even our groomsmen are wearing mis matched suits. 🙂 We figured if the bridesmaids aren’t matching, the groomsmen don’t need to be either! So it’s BYOBS (Black Suit) 🙂

You dont have to have anyone matching if you dont want to. We are having our dads match our groomsmen but that is because our dads wanted to. We are not having ushers, but if we were I would probably just have them wear their own suit and tie. Also, I would say if you know what your colors are early on then start looking for stuff. It took us FOREVER to find a yellow tie that we liked! We finally found one from Joseph A Bank but it was fairly expensive and I felt bad asking the groomsmen to buy it. And you might not change your colors! We decided on yellow green and brown from day 1 and that is what we have stuck to!!
