- Wedding: April 2010
I have a bit of a dilemma with figuring out the men’s attire for my wedding. The bridesmaids are wearing a spring green color and the color scheme of the wedding is meant to be natural earthtones with the accent color of spring green. It is outdoors in the SPRING and we are trying to create a garden/natural type look. We are using wild flowers and some Willow Tree looking stuff.
The green of the dresses is going to be hard to match and I won’t get the dresses in until close to the wedding, so I was thinking of choosing coordinating but not matching colors for the men.
I wondered if it is ok to pair a black suit with a taupe tie? They will not be in tuxes, just suits and ties. The boutonnieres will have quite a bit of green in them. Also I had wondered if it’s acceptable to use brown ties with the black suits. Would that look too dark for Spring?Or maybe the groomsmen could wear the brown ties and the groom a taupe tie? Or the groomsmen wear taupe ties and the groom wear a white tie or light khaki tie?
Also would it be acceptable for the flower girl to wear taupe linen and the ring bearers to wear brown polos with khaki pants?
Here is a pic of the dresses:
