For me that’s way too much and the shirt and tie don’t match. I would do a white shirt with a purple tie and gray suit (or black if gray isn’t an option).

Too much purple would be if the suits themselves were purple too, and the shoes…. Looks okay to me.

Call me a traditionalist, but I don’t think the Groomsmen would be comfortable in that much purple. I would talk to them. (Most Groomsmen won’t care unless its a big deal because guys don’t care about things like that unless it really bugs them.)

Would those be the shades?  I agree that they don’t really match.  Maybe a bit too much purple for my taste.

I’m not a fan of purple shirts.  And my favorite color is purple.

I would like purple ties with white shirts.

Def too much purple and not matching.

I think a white shirt would be nicer 🙂

Way too much purple… do you have any other wedding colors?  What about ivory or cream shirts and purple ties?

My Fiance was recently a guest at a wedding and wore a light purple shirt with a dark purple tie!  Those are actually our wedding colors and he said he wanted to “represent.”  Just wanted to say that it’s not outside the realm of possibility for a guest to wear that!

I don’t mind the 2 purples (again, those are our colors), but I agree that the shades don’t go together.  Perhaps you could try more of a blue-toned purple for the shirt.

I think it looks fine, but I’m also not the most fashionable person. In any case, I think the best way for GM’s to stand out is to give them flowers. No guest will have a flower on their lapel, but any guest might be in any color suit/shirt/tie. (that’s the only way we told my DH’s dad and his identical twin apart!)

I don’t think those two go together. What about a light purple shirt with a purple tie? My first colors had purple in them and we where going to do purple shirts with purple ties. Now, we are doing pink! I’m lucky that my Fiance and the groomsmen are actually excited to wear a fun color that they wouldn’t normally wear!

 

Here is what we originally planned…

It’s not too much purple per se, but the shirt and tie shades don’t match.  You have the shirt with a more warm undertone, but the tie has a cold undertone.  Doesn’t work together.

I don’t think most guests will necessarily wear purple ties. I think it would look better with white shirts and purple ties. Perhaps get the Groomsmen pocket squares or boutainneers?

@sjs:  I like this top one a lot!  We did purple ties and vests w/a white shirt.  I feel like purple on purple might be a bit much.
