My bridesmaids are going to be in this dress by Wtoo (style 854)
In black (as shown). My fiance and I havent yet decided on the groomsmen’s outfits (ie tuxedos or suits). The wedding is fairly formal (married in a church, reception in a castle), so I don’t think a tux would be over the top. However, my fiance isn’t really the type to be so formal, and I feel he would be more comfortable is a suit. Plus, I was thinking if we did tuxedos for the men, the whole wedding party would be wearing black, and it might look sort of serious, or dark in pics. So if the men wear suits, I was thinking grey.
With the guys wearing black ties, to sort of “connect” them to the ladies. Our colors are purple, green and white, so the flowers would be where color comes in.
Does anyone have any pics of their all black-wearing wedding party? Or grey suits and black bridesmaids dresses? I would be very appreciative! Thanks!

I think that grey would look fine, but I also don’t see a problem with the men wearing black either. They can wear black suits instead of tuxes. You could tie the color in in their ties more that way. We are doing black Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses too but they will have colored shoes. The guys will be in black suits with colored vests/ties to tie in our colors.

I love your Bridesmaid or Best Man dress! My BM’s wore black dresses. Same color-totally different styles, makes, etc. The men were in tuxes. My husband is super picky so we went with a local tux shop that had all tuxes, accessories, etc. in stock so if he was at all uncomfortable down to the wire, we had options. Here is a pic of everyone. It was a formal event, but I don’t think they look too dismal. You can definitely spruce things up with flowers. I am not crazy about mine, especially since my florist used some that died immediately, but they add a small pop of color.

thanks for the pic! gives me a much better idea about what the bridal party could look like. you and your ladies and gents look stunning!
i think we are going to go with black tuxes for the guys, bc the rental places we are looking to use only have one grey suit, and it has grey satin trim along the lapel that my fiance is really opposed to (me as well). so we are going to go with the traditional black tux. a classic. and thanks to your pic i can rest assured it will look awesome!
