Hello All, I have finally picked my wedding colors, thanks to a wonderful inspiration board I came across online. In any case, the colors are blue, yellow, and silver/gray. I was really excited until my hubby to be stated that he would prefer to wear a black tux; he doesn’t like the idea of wearing a gray tux. Now, I am at a lost! I think a black tux would be an additional color and may clash or am I wrong. So what do you think? Do you think it will be too much or will it work?

I think black would be fine. But him in black and the GM’s in gray would look cool too. Maybe he can have a gray vest and the GM’s can have black vests. Black is a neutral so I don’t think it really counts as another color if it’s only in the tuxes.

I like the idea of the tux in black and gray vest. Going to look for pics so I can visually see it. Thanks!!

I think black would be fine. Remember not every detail of the wedding has to match. That would just be impossible. These things won’t be looked at in an inspiration board format. Only the decor will really be looked at as a whole. But people are not decor and not accessories so they don’t need to match with the tablecloths and centerpieces.

Don’t forget about charcoal tuxes. The men will think they are black and they will just be a darker version of grey.

If you to-be-husband has a strong preference about color, I would defer to him. You likely picked your own outfit (and Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses); I think it’s fair for him to pick his outfit (and Groomsmen tuxes).

Eeeks! “But people are not decor and not accessories so they don’t need to match with the tablecloths and centerpieces.” I didn’t look at it in that manner but that was funny :-). Thanks, very true! I think I looked into the color way too much. I just never really paid attention to those wedding details when I have gone to weddings and now that I’m planning I was really convinced that I needed to make sure everything looked great together.

Very good point
True, like julies1949 said, maybe I will go with charcoal!
Thanks for your input!
