I need help because I can’t seem to muster an opinion on the groomsmen’s gear for my wedding….but I need one because I need to direct my groom because he’s clueless about it, too! Nothing I’ve found strikes me, so I thought I’d throw it out there to the bees. So, please help me. What color ties do they wear?? What about my FI?? How do I make him stand out? Any help is greatly appreciated!
I am getting married outdoors at a vineyard with a tented reception, and the plan is to have all of the guys, including the groom, in tan suits. My color scheme is dark teal (see Bridesmaid or Best Man dress below) and peach/orange, using colors like this:
The suits will look something like this:
My bridesmaids will be wearing this (and I think carrying peach/orange bouquets):
My bouquet will be mango calla lilies, kind of like this:
My shoes will also be an orangey color.
I know this is probably more info than necessary….but I need help!!!

Put your groom in a different colour tie and different colour boutteniere (sp)
But choose carefully, either he is going to look better in teal (cool) or tangerine (warm)
I LOVE YOUR COLOURS

@BlushingBee: Ohhh, I hadn’t thought about considering which color the groom will look better in and to go that route…what a good point! And thanks about the colors!!

@hardtoconcentrate: You’re welcome. Girls can fix it with make-up, boys not so much.

@BlushingBee: haha very true!
Any other help out there?? I guess talking about what the guys are going to wear doesn’t excite the bees nearly as much as the other stuff we chat about.

I love your Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. Where did you find them?
I think if you put the men in teal ties (maybe with stripes or another pattern to lighten it up a little) with orange boutineres that would look good. Your Fiance can wear a white tie to match your dress with an orange bout.? I think that is what I am going to do!
(My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are navy, men in gray suits with navy ties. Bouquets and bouts. are peachy/ivory. Groom in white tie with peach bout. or navy tie with ivory bout.)

@LovelyLaura: Thanks! The dresses are from Ann Taylor. I was actually planning on navy first but then fell in love withthis color, so I went with these dresses because they were the only ones in this color and fabric!
Thanks for the ideas. That’s similar to what I was thinking after looking online yesterday. I was thinking mango calla lily bouts for the guys and a white calla lily for the groom, and these ties:
What do you think? Are the groomsmen’s ties too dark for a lighter tan suit like one in my original post?
