Hi all, I have picked my bridesmaids dress and flowers (dress on left handside of pic) flowers are burnt orange calla lillies, but I have no idea what colour suits to pick for the groomsmen….I think I want something other then black, a friend has suggested tan suits but I need some other opinions.

I’m a sucker for a dark grey suit on a guy any day! I don’t think tan would suit the champagne color dress but it would be okay with the chocolate color- as long as it’s a summer wedding.

I personally am not a big fan of tan suits so I wouldn’t recommend it. I think the photos will look too brown.
Grey would clash with the colour of the dresses.
I know you don’t want black, but I think it would look the best

@babecake: I second this. Tan would put such a damper on the wedding photos. So I second black suits and have tan/ khaki/ pale gold ties.

I think if you went tan there would be way too much brown!
We went a light beige, I liked them but again, I don’t think it would work for you.

Yeah were definatly going with the champagne colour dress not the brown dress. Thats what I was worried about when my friend sugested tan suits, I thought it would look all too washed out.

dark brown suits or tuxes would look nice.

If I understand your post correctly, you aren’t using the brown dress on the right, only the champagne dress on the left. If that’s the case, I think a chocolate brown suit would look fantastic, especially standing next to a bridesmaid with that brown sash. Then the groomsmen could wear an orange tie similar to the flowers. Maybe a champagne tie for your FI, and that wolud really pull it all together. I think that’s an awesome color pallate!

@BabyBlueEyes: Thanks so much, to be honest brown suits never even crossed my mind! But that sounds like it will work 🙂 This is why I love brainstorming with other people! 😀 cheers guys
