How many groomsman are you having?  Perhaps, if it’s an even number, you could just do half with one tie and half with another tie? I think that would look nice. I love purple and gold..such a pretty combo. But I do like that tie in the last photo. I think that would be nice on all of the guys.

OMGosh I had such a nightmare with ties!  I literally bought and returned $1000 worth of ties to lord and taylor within a 2 month span.  They are right down the block from where I work, so i would stop in, buy 10 ties, take them home for FI’s approval, then return them when he hated them.  We wound up doing 1 pattern for Fiance, 1 pattern for the best man, matching patterns for the groomsmen and another set of matching ties for the groomsmen.

 

I digress.

 

Did the store do a search for other stores in their chain that have the tie?  I had lord and taylor do that, and macy’s, then just called up the store and ordered them to be sent to me.  Also, I found that ties were constantly replenished (could be because I am NYC), so I just kept going back to see if there were more ties in the colors that I needed.

@vlrmartin27:  It was a nightmare!  I am sooo happy that it was settled!  I would definitely just keep looking for ties that have purple and black, and just be really aware of when the last day to return the ties are. 

There are a bunch of purple striped ties here at kohls that are just purple and black and a bunch here that are purple and black patterns

once you start looking for ties, you realize that they are everywhere and most places have a pretty large selection πŸ™‚

You’ll be fine, love. I really love the purple and peach together! The amount of gold that your ladies will be wearing will be relatively small, and the amount of gray in the ties is positively MINISCULE. While I’m not even of the belief that gold and grey clash (isn’t yellow and grey, like, the hot new thing in wedding land?) — you have such a small amount of the color that it’s not going to be a thing, other than gorgeous. πŸ™‚
