I am *thisclose* to saying YES to the Justin Alexander 8465 dress!
I’m planning to get it in “latte” which is a light brown color (shown above), which is gorgeous and goes well with my skin tone. However, our colors for our wedding (currently) are aqua/tiffany blue, yellow (like mustard-ish), and light grey. This will obviously not work now! We’ll keep the aqua and yellow (the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are aqua and will still look nice) but I’m trying to figure out how to replace the grey.
The guys were originally going to wear lighter grey vests and slacks. But now I have to reconsider. The dress sometimes looks almost pink but up close, it’s definitely light brown.
What color should I change the guys to? Dark brown? Light brown? FH is wearing a charcoal suit, which we’re not going to change since he’s already had it altered and bought. I never expected to pick a brown dress!
Thanks in advance for your opinions!

I’m for charcoal or grey. Both excellent choices! Beautiful dress, btw!

@MangoSong: Thank you!! I’d seen the dress in magazines and didn’t really consider it. However, I knew I wanted something tea length and had lace. I just happened to try it on and LOVE it. I’m going to make a final decision this week! =)

Okay I never leave a comment but felt compelled since I had the same problem when planning our wedding!! I ended up wearing this dress as well for my wedding and I absolutely loved it!! Seriously, I am now trying to find another excuse to wear this dress (is it too early to plan a vow renewal…hahaha). So anywhoo….we did not have groomsmen but my husband wore a three piece light gray pinstriped suit that looked awesome!!! Here is the link to our photographers blog about our wedding just in case you want to see how his suit looked with the dress!

I think charcoal or a light grey is fine! Just some shade of grey will develop a nice contrast 🙂 Congratulations on the dress! SO PRETTY!!!!

I do like light grey with this dress though if you really wanted to “match” I would go light brown/beige coloured suits 🙂
