I think the silver would be great! I’m not matching my Bridesmaid or Best Man to Groomsmen either. I’m not a big matchy-matchy person ๐Ÿ™‚

Firstly, those sound like beautiful colors together! 

I would say get the groomsmen to go silver though. It would look a lot better to have all your colors incorporated into their attire than two different shades of one color which don’t necessarily look nice together. You chose silver and purple because they work nicely, so have them work nicely in every aspect ๐Ÿ™‚

 

I’m not having my BMs and groomsmen exactly matching. My colors are champagne and black, with accents of white. The BMs will be in black (easy for them to find a style they like) with ivory or gold-ish flowers, the groomsmen in black tuxes with champagne vests and the same flowers as BMs in boutonierres, me in white obviously with black and white flowers and I’m thinking groom in black tux and black vest, with white boutonierre. So nobody is completely coordinating but the BMs and Groomsmen compliment eachother, me and my groom compliment eachother and overall we represent all the colors ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Hopefully that helped?

I had this debate for a long time too!  My bm dresses were davids apple red and there was a red at mens warehouse that was exactly the same, but i went for the platinum instead of the matchy look.  I’d go for the purple/silver, than an almost matching purple if it is very obviously different.

I am not a fan of colored vests with tuxes. I think it’s starting to look dated. You would be perfectly fine in black or silver vests. You could match them with a pocket square or tie.

this is one of my peeves so i prob shouldnt be a person to respond lol. i hate hate hate when they arent an exact match.  my girls are in AA eggplant so to avoid a color mismatch we are going with this look from Jos. A Bank for the guys.  The flower girls/ring bearer will be in liac and the future hubs in silver.

Nope they don’t need to match. For my wedding we had the BM’s/JR Bridesmaid or Best Man in navy blue and the guys had black tuxes with silver vests ties.

@alicat2: That could actually be a pretty cute idea, it would look more balanced in pictures too ๐Ÿ™‚

I agree with scadadle15 and just really dislike the matchy matchy look – it reminds me of prom.  I plan to put our groomsmen in black vests/ties regardless of the bridesmaid dress color.
