Do you think it is awful to ask the men to wear brown? My Fiance really wants to purchase his tux, but I’m trying to tell him that there is no reason he would ever really need a tux again. Also, do you think Brown will become one of those colors that will be like, “Oh my, you wore that 20 years ago”. Like powder blue became…like when I show my children our wedding pictures, will the cringe if I have brown tuxes??

It’s possible they’ll look dated at some point, since brown is such an “in” color right now. Have you looked at the brown tux options? There aren’t a lot, but some of them look ok.
I think, though, in the end it doesn’t matter if the pictures look dated or not. As Ariel from Offbeat Bride puts it, wedding pictures are like a time capsule, showing who you were then–we all change and so do the fads! What’s important is that YOU like it!
I will say this: I doubt your husband will find many other opportunities to wear a brown tux again. Good luck and best wishes!

I don’t know, personally I try to make my wedding decisions hoping that things are classic and stay away from a lot of trends… and won’t end up like the powder blue tux. i do love brown on guys though, and you can’t predict the future. i’d go with what you love.

The tuxedo styles available currently in brown are classic styles, and I don’t think the color will make you gag 20 years from now, any more than the hairstyles will. If you love the brown, go for it!
