We have decided on black bridesmaid dresses (long) but now we are stuck for what to dress the guys in. My Fiance is concerned black suits will make it look too much like a funeral. Im wearing ivory. We contemplated grey suits with black shirts for the groomsmen and ivory shirt for the groom but dont know if this will look silly. There are 2 bridesmaids and groomsmen. Has anyone else had black and what did you do?

My guys and gals wore black and I didnt think it looked like a funeral.I chose a modern cut suit with a black tie for Darling Husband and dark grey for the GMs. I think the dark ties gave that “formal” touch. They were similar yo this one.

I think it will work out just fine. As long as you are all smiling and having fun, it won’t look like a funeral!
You could liven it up with a colorful wrap for the girls, a bright tie for the guys. Or just a tie for the guys as the girls will likely be holding flowers at the ceremony and in the formal pics.

We’re doing black BMs and GMs. I think it will look fine as long as they have colorful flowers.

Its just it took ages to convince him to allow black bridemaid dresses because he thought black isnt a wedding colour, it a funeral colour. I think its elegant and one of the bridesmaids is plus size and black is flattering and i want her to feel comfortable. I also want the girls to be able to wear their dresses again.
