    I amassuming the groomsmen are going to have black suits??  Then I think it is fine, if they are not then no way.

    I am concerned that it may come off as a mish mash of colors.

    My fashion-conscious Fiance suggests that your men could wear chocolate brown shoes & belts: which would be particularly fitting for a fresh summer wedding.

    Brown shoes so it doesn’t clash / look like a separate bridal party.

    yes??

    Also: when you say “blue” shirts and “blue” dresses, do you plan to match the two blues? 

    And are you thinking a navy blue ike in your inspiration pic?

    I think brown shoes would look nice. Is there a budget reason you may want to stick with black shoes for the men?

    @garden_bride:  great pic find.  I would say yes, that’s great.  Fiance says “as long as the shoes are darker than the grey suit”

    Brown and black make me uncomfortable so I don’t like the pairing but on the people individually it will look nice.  I like things to be either brown-based or black-based so I think it throws off the eye when they are mixed.
