    I’ve seen chocolate brown tuxes before and I really think it doesn’t look that bad at all !!  Though, it does a little but of a casual feel to it but I think it’s something different.  It’s also cute whent he bride wears chocolate brown shoes to match the tuxes.

    I say go for it!

    Since it goes with your colour scheme, it might be okay. But personally, when I see brown tuxes it makes me think of my parent’s best man and his dated brown tux. A plausible alternative is wearing black tuxes with brown vests/ties. One of my friends did this and it looked great!

    I was "this close" (me holding two fingers close together) to using brown suits, I still love them, we just went another way.

    Go for it!

    we’re getting married this coming may and our main color is yellow-gold. initially, my Fiance was against the browns tuxes, but when he saw the fabric swatch of the yellow-gold next to the brown tux, he was all for it. your Fiance can even wear an ivory shirt to match your dress.

    When one of my BMs got married, the grooms wore chocolate tuxes.  It was a black-tie wedding (early in the day) and didnt look too casual at all.  The girls dresses were a dusty mauve kind of color and it looked great together.  I definitely would not do black tuxes with brown vests though…that reminds me of something from the 70s…I just dont like black and brown together.

    Go with your gut.

    As a tux store employee, I’d definitely say go for it with the brown! They look really good, and I’ve never heard any complaints that they were too casual or dated. As the world in general is getting less formal, non-black tuxes are getting much more popular, and they look great. Also, if you’re renting, the non-black ones tend to be in much better shape because they just don’t get rented as much. If our wedding would work with brown, I’d go with them over black for sure. They just look awesome!

    And gotta agree with the no black tux/brown vest. It just looks off to me. But that’s totally my personal opinion, not professional.

    I’m doing brown tuxes and brown bridesmaid dresses.  And, the tuxes are going to have white vests and brown ties. That way it’s not too matchy, matchy. I love the look – it’s really classy.
