I am looking for some help locating pictures where the ladies are in black and the men in navy.
We don’t want the ladies to have to buy dresses, hence the black, and we don’t want the men to have to rent suits and they all have a navy suit….I am having trouble locating pictures to see how it will look.
Has anyone seen any pics? Had the same colours?
Thanks for your help.

I am bumping this post so it doesn’t get lost in the shuffle.
I don’t have any pics, but I can tell you that generally when I wear a black dress my husband wears his black suit. However, I can’t imagine it looking bad. If all of your guys have navy suits have one of them try it on with the his gal next to him in a black dress to see how it looks! Good luck!

There was a post not too long ago about the opposite situation, girls in navy dresses, and guys in black suits. I felt on that one that it’d be fine. With navy suits, eh, I would definitely second taking some random pictures of a couple of the guys/girls together to see how you feel about it. I couldn’t do it, personally, partially because unless the guys all own the *same* navy suit, they’ll be different shades and as someone who works in the suit business that would drive me nuts. Honestly, I wouldn’t do it. But that’s me, and my opinion. If you look at the pictures and think it looks good, then do it!

I agree I would reconsider

I certainly wasn’t sold, so your advice helped, we’ve canned the blue suits. We don’t have another plan yet, but we’ll come up with something!
Thanks ladies 😉

Let us know what you come up with. If you do go back to the navy idea I found this photo. It’s actually reversed where the guy is in black and the girl is in navy, but it doesn’t look bad to me. Maybe you can put the combo together on something like Polyvore or even David’s Bridal (where you can dress up yourself with your bridal party) and see how it looks.
