    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 ๐Ÿ™‚

    hah, I voted for saving money (and headaches) – even our groomsmen are wearing mis matched suits. ๐Ÿ™‚ We figured if the bridesmaids aren’t matching, the groomsmen don’t need to be either! So it’s BYOBS (Black Suit) ๐Ÿ™‚

    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!!
