I am a little surprised to hear that the guys will be wearing black suits in a barn, but from the sound of the bridesmaids’ attire they seem to match them somewhat.

I would choose the plaid tie in this case because the plaid seems like a reference to the location. 

You boutonnieres could be a very simple white carnation which is a very classic boutonniere.

I love the look of calla lilies (they are clean, and not too girly-looking).  You could wrap the ends in either black or dark gray ribbon.

I’m having an outdoor wedding and barn reception. Black and white is actually part of our color scheme, but we are making it look antique/shabby chic as well. I agree that the plaid would work better, it seems slightly less formal. My fiance really likes the idea of herb boutonnierres and I think they will work with the rustic venue. Maybe that would work with your decor.

I love the plaid!  Sounds like you have a lot of flat colours (black, grey, white) and I think while yes it’s elegant, it’s still pretty bland overall (though maybe the decor is really flash and you don’t want too much going on).  I’d suggest finding a way to bring in a coloured neutral(peach or soft pink, pale purple maybe), or else go bold with very small touches of something like the apple green, or a deep pink, or something?  You could add a sash or coloured flower/ribbon to the BM’s and then the guys ties?

ETA, I’d personally go with a coloured flower for the bout, carnations are really nice, as are gerbera’s.  But if you are set on monochromatic theme, then either of those in white would be nice, callas are very elegant and classy, as are freesia and Alstromeria.




I personally love this one!

@les105:  I understand, Fiance and I have been around the block on our guys stuff too lol!  I think a touch of colour would be really pretty, break up the severity of the black/silver/gray/white tones.  Make them a bit softer.

Good luck, hope you can find something mutually pleasing!
