Hi there! I’m in the process of deciding what our groomsmen are going to wear for our June wedding (my husband-to-be has no opinion). My dress is ivory, and my girls are wearing champagne. Our theme for our wedding is earthy, but elegant. To me, nothing says elegance like neutrals! I’m so excited about the champagne color but now I’m worrying that it might all be too much…Originally I was planning on putting the guys in khaki suits with chocolate ties (no vest), but I’m afraid they will look too much alike standing next to my bridesmaids. I’ve also considered chocolate or taupe suits, but worry that those might look outdated…What should I do??

I really wanted my men to be in chocolate suits but our bms were in chocolate. I think that there are a lot of really nice modern chocolate suits. It is just a matter of finding the right style.

I’m going to preface this by saying I’m not too aware of fashion, but my suggestion would be to mix it up and have the guys wear different colors for the jackets and pants:
Like this –
or somthing like this –
(With khaki instead of white)
The second is a more casual – you said you were going for elegant, so they might not be exactly what you are looking for. They might give you some idea.
Also, I wouldn’t worry about them looking outdated. Your wedding will occur at some point in time, so just own it and realize that trends change!

The all chocolate suit as well as the khaki jacket/brown pants suit is gorgeous! And don’t worry about them blending in – I think your color palette is just wonderful!

@cmvmph: I agree. I’m not a huge fan of the mismatched pants/jacket combo above.
