Hi Snappal! My girls are wearing mis-matched grey too! I think we have 5 different shades for 7 bridesmaids. They’re also wearing either a light pink or green pashmina. The groomsmen we have asked to wear a black suit they already own with mis-matched green ties. We figured they already had a black suit rather than grey.


When’s your date? We’re May 2nd and the wedding is outside under a large pavilion. Happy planning!

Maybe make the suits match, but shirts and ties can be different?

I’d stick with black for the Groomsmen. I think your right – it would be too much grey.

here’s a wedding where the bm’s wore gray dresses.  I believe the gm’s wore black suits with gary vests, and it looked oh so lovely.


here are more pics on the photogs blog: 


if the shades of gray are going to be different, i think unifying them with ties as suggested above would look nice?

I also think you should do black for the Groomsmen. Black (either tuxes or suits) would really set of the different shades of gray in the bridesmaids dresses. If you have gray suits, it might get to bee TOO MUCH of different shades of gray. Perhaps the Groomsmen could wear gray ties & socks, or gray vests.

I also vote for black suits.
