@nikkiweds:  I think the dress is really pretty, and I’d be happy to wear that as a bridesmaid.  Your man of honor could wear a suit of whatever color the other guys are wearing, a white shirt, and a tie/bowtie to match the orange/red of the dress?

@nikkiweds:  Everyone will know that the groom is the one standing next to the bride.

Do I understand correctly that the groom is willing to wear a suit?  If so,I think he would look great in a charcoal suit. He can wear a white shirt and a tie that brings in the autumn colors.

The groomsmen and the man of honor could wear the same suit and white shirt, but wear a different tie.  If you like the look they can even all wear different ties.

@nikkiweds:  if your accent colour is black an the bridesmaids are red, I’d go black tie on the groom, red on the groomsmen.


And I LOVE the grey suit idea!! I want Fiance in a grey suit too. He wore one for my 60’s party and he looked sharp!!


Also, did you buy the bridesmaids dresses already? Are you wanting opinions on that or should I keep my lips closed? I will let you pick 😛

Eta: I love your dress!! Amazing!

I love that bridesmaid’s dress. Perfect for an October wedding and will go very well with your dress. As for gray suits, my son’s wedding party (his wedding was late September and based around autumn colours) wore grey suits with dark orange ties. Looked really good I thought.

ETA – Here’s the picture I originally intended to post with it. Both of my sons, the younger one in the grey suit being Bridesmaid or Best Man.

@nikkiweds:  I got some pretty strong opinions on my use of orange/black for an October wedding, but I ended up loving it. Nothing could have been easier to match. Sorry if the below pictures are huge.

If you’re doing boutonnieres for the guys, you can also use those to differnetiate between who is who!

@nikkiweds:  No problem! You could even do something like the groom with his own color tie and unique boutonniere, then the groomsmen in a different colored tie and boutonniere, with your man of honor having the same groomsmen tie but maybe a different boutonniere, if you want him to have something unique?
