So here’s my dilema…
I have no sense of style. I am having a casual, outdoor dpring wedding. Flowers will be bright gerberas picked up from the nursery the day before the wedding – fuschia, orange, dark red, yellow, light pink, etc…
The Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are David’s Bridal Marine in satin fabric. It’s a very dark, but shimmery blue. I have no idea what color tie to get for the boys. There is only 1 groomsman, and 2 bridesmaids. All the ties I have looked at don’t seem right. They either seem too bright, or to-close-but-not-quite-right to the flower colors. The boys are wearing black suits, no vest.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

A lot of mens ties have patterns. Do you have any you like or dislike? I personally love paiseleys, so I like this one.
Or, if you want to brighten it up since the suits are black: try this one.
I haven’t shopped at the tie bar but heard good things about them for having a wide selection of reasonably priced ties. I would probably go to a store to view the colors in person.

Usually DB pairs up with Men’s Wearhouse. Have you tried there? I’m kind of surprised you can’t find matching ties. But if you really can’t could you go with black or gray ties?

I think my fiance will veto the paisley one, although I like it a lot. But the orange patterned one you linked to is very close to what I am looking for!
I can find matching ties, but the boys ties can’t match the girls dresses becasue it will clash with their black suits. The dresses are too dark to go well with black, so I’m trying to have the ties coordinate with the flowers.

We matched up at Men’s Wearhouse. My girls are also wearing Marine. Men’s Wearhouse had two ties that went perfectly with it. We went with a patterned one. I think it was called midnight, if I remember correctly. And we have Marine dresses plus tuxes with marine ties. They go great together. Fiance is wearing a gold tie however.

Have you looked at tie bar? They have the best ties and they are only $15 a piece. They are very good quality for what you pay, comparable to what you would see in a department store. I am also having dark blue dresses (J.Crew’s Lydia in Deep Atlantic) with hot pink shoes and the guys are wearing black tuxes.
I picked this tie:
I love them!! They are perfect for our look!

Ditto on the Tie Bar – we got ours from there and they are a great price. The quality is nice for a $15 tie.

I am doing about the same color bridesmaid dress and I used the yellow tie in this picture for the guys with navy suits, white shirts, brown shoes and brown belt. Got these at Joseph A. Banks.
