Hello! So, my fiance and I iike the look of ties without vests for the groomsmen. However, the ties that the rental company offers are too short because they are made to be tucked into vests. So they suggested that we buy the ties for the guys from a department store and give it to them as part of their groomsmen gifts. We thought this was a great idea! Then, when we went to the department store and saw the selection, we had the idea to get the groomsmen each a different pattern tie in similar colors.
Here are the ties we picked out:
And we are having pale peach bridesmaid dresses:
(face not shown because the picture was sent to me by a helpful fellow poster!)
I was thinking that gold would accent the peach color well (shoes, jewelry, etc), so while we were originally going with gray suits for the guys, we changed it to black so that the girls could have gold accents and not clash with gray suits.
However… some of these ties have gray incorporated into them, so would the ties clash with the girls with their gold accents?? (gold watch just used for the sake of comparison)
The gold seems to look better with the tie without gray in it:
Mind you.. the ties were just bought yesterday so they can be returned (to possibly get all ties with just purple/black, no gray?), the guys’ suits were ordered in black with ivory shirts but they can also be changed until the end of March, and none of the “gold accents” (bridesmaids’ shoes, jewlery) have been purchased yet. So the only thing that’s set in stone, really, are the bridesmaids’ light peach dresses.
…Thoughts?? Do you like the pale peach/purple/gold/black combo? Should we return the ties and get ones with just purple/black, no gray? And do you like the different pattern idea?
Phew. Thank you for your help!
