Hi Bees! I need advice – again! I know it may be hard to do without being able to see things, but here does.
We are getting ready to pick out the tuxedoes for my fiancee and the groomsmen, but I’m not sure what we should be looking for. Our bridesmaids dresses (and lots of other design elements) are a VERY dark navy color. What kind of tuxedo would look good with that? I’m worried that the traditional black might clash with the girls dresses, but does such a thing as a navy tuxedo exist? And it might be a nightmare to try to match different navy colors. Do we go with black and try to do a navy vest and tie? I don’t really like that look, I would probably prefer to go all black or black and white but I just don’t know what to pick!

In my opinion I would go with a traditional black tux (or suite) but use a navy accent via tie or vest.
I think Navy tuxedos are hard to find and might be a flashback to the 70s. Similarly if you go all black, then I think you lose the idea that Navy is a wedding color.
Hope that helps. Good Luck!

I dont think a black tux will clash at all! I like the navy vest/tie with black tux combo but if that makes you uncomfortable, maybe white ties/vests with black tuxes will "brighten" things up a bit. Davids Bridal’s website has one of those "virtual wedding party" tools that you can dress your party up and see how they might look, you might want to give that a try!

My BMs wore dark navy dresses and the GMs wore black tuxes with black vests. I had a Man of Honor who wore a black tux with a navy vest to match the BMs. Looked great.

You could also do Navy jackets with khaki pants. That is what we are doing. Here is a picture:

Newport Nuptials – I would love to be able to do that, but my fiancee argues that for his own wedding he wants to be dressed fancier than a suit. I guess I can see his point. Thanks for the David’s Bridal web site, penguin! I think we are just going to have to try a bunch of things on and see what works.
