Ok still having a really hard time with this I NEED SOME HELP! My bridesmaids are wearing Bari Jay Style 364. They are in chocolate brown with an ivory sash. My fiance is wearing his military dress blues. (he decided to tell me this yesterday by the way!!!! I am very excited about him doing this but boy was this a surprise! ) We both have a really hard time with a brown tux but I am thinking there might be a bit too much color if I have the groomsmen in black, fiance in military dress blues (navy, yellow, white, etc) and the girls in chocolate brown. How does everyone feel about chocolate brown tuxes?

I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a chocolate tux – I’ll have to google it!
I think it is fine for them to wear black, though. All of your colors are classic and neutral & will go very well together!

I would go w/ black tuxes and brown vests and ties.
P.S. Those dresses are really pretty 🙂

we are getting chocolate brown tuxes for our groomsmen, but our bridesmaids are also wearing chocolate brown….I agree though, you could go with the black tuxes and get the brown ties/vests or even brown pocketfolds and brown ties.

I’m personally not a fan of the chocolate brown vests and ties with black tuxes. I don’t really like to put brown and black right next to each other. I’ve been to 2 weddings with the brown tuxes and liked them, but I know people who don’t as well, so make sure you see them in person before making the decision.

Get a look at the chocolate brown tuxes in person, then decide. I think the black will look fine if that’s what you decide to do.
P.S. The hairdos in that picture are intense! But the dresses are pretty!

My fiance is also in the miltary and I’ll tell you what everyone has told me: don’t worry about what’s going to match your fiance’s dress blues. He’s in uniform and that trumps anything and everything. I know you may still fret and stress over it (I did for five months – this weekend was the first weekend I finally felt at ease with the idea!). My colors are pink and chocolate, and my girls are wearing dark brown dresses. The tux place I decided to go with suggested having the guys in black tuxes with brown – if you have brown tuxes it may look a little too matchy/matchy with the girls. I wasn’t too sure about it till he showed me pictures of the matchiness.Anyway, long story short, we’re going with black tux/brown vest and tie – for what it’s worth 🙂

My sister had her groomsmen in their wedding wear brown tux’s and it ended up looking awesome! To tell you the truth you really couldnt tell they were brown at first, and it added originality to their attire. I say go with the brown, you wont be dissapointed!
