    Depends if you’re getting married in the evening, and what time of the year. 

    If it’s summer or warm, white would be good, but I think it’d look a bit odd in winter or cold weather – then go for black.

    I don’t particularly like tuxedos for daytime weddings (since they’re evening wear) so I would go with a compromise and say a pale grey suit for a daytime wedding. Grey looks awesome with pink, better than black or white In My Humble Opinion.

    OMG when I saw the title, I thought you were asking if it would be okay for YOU to wear a white dinner jacket with your blush divina. Okay, now that that is over, I think that it’s worth a shot, it shouldn’t look silly just because the dress is blush

    @Bjack28: Definitely go for the white then if it’s Louisiana. It will look great!

    You could even go an entirely white suit, or if not that a very pale grey. Like the one on the left here:

    @Bjack28:  So bridesmaids in navy and flowers in raspberry?

    In that case, I think you should only introduce one more colour – black or white (or grey), but not both (i.e. if you want a white jacket then it’ll have to be an all white suit). It’s going to look too messy otherwise. And preferably go with a non-colour (black or white or grey) but not an actual colour like tan or taupe, which have yellow in them.

    Also I think you need to actually hit the reply button for the tag to link. This isn’t Twitter unfortunately!

    @Bjack28:  The easiest thing then would be for the groom to wear navy as well. It doesn’t necessarily have to be really hot if it’s a lightweight fabric. But then that would mean it would be a lounge suit rather than a tuxedu. 

    As to the balance thing, it will depend on how many attendants you have and whether you plan to have the groom in the same colour suit as the groomsmen (I’m guessing not, since you want him to stand out). 

    So, bridesmaids in navy, groomsmen in navy, groom in white or grey, you in blush, plus pops of raspberry – this would probably be OK because the dominant colour is navy especially if there are a lot of attendants. 

    Bridesmaids in navy, groomsmen in black, groom in white, you in blush, raspberry flowers – probably too much going on (especially if you only have 1 or 2 bridesmaids) because it’s less balanced.

    If your bridesmaids are in raspberry, groomsmen in navy then I think the groom should wear all white or as close to white as possible (pale grey) as from a distance it’ll look white so it would be the three colours, with one (white/grey) being less dominant than the other two (navy/raspberry). Or he could wear navy as well.

    If you’ve got some bridesmaids in raspberry and some in navy – uh, complicated! Would probably have the male attendants in grey then because it’s a more neutral colour and doesn’t compete with the blush, raspberry and navy as much. But I would have all the shirts being one of the other colours (blush, raspberry or navy) to tie it in together.

    Hope this makes sense!

    @Bjack28:  Yes, either of those instead of black would look more unified, especially if you want the groom to be in a different colour suit.

    If you want the groomsmen in black, then I think the groom would have to be in black too as otherwise it’s five different colours – navy, blush, raspsberry, black, white – and even though blush/raspberry and black/white are light/dark versions of each other, there’s still a fair bit of contrast there so they look like separate colours.

    So I would go with groomsmen in navy/groom in grey or white, or groomsmen in grey/groom in lighter grey or white as it reduces the number of very different colours. 

    Though to be honest, I’m having a hard time picturing blush and navy together. Do you have photos of the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses?

    Really, if I were picking colours to coordinate the most with the blush, I’d have the bridesmaids in raspberry, groom in light grey, groomsmen in dark grey. That way the groomsmen and bridesmaids are in darker tones of the bride and groom outfits.

    Or bridesmaids and groomsmen in black (which is what another Bee with a blush dress did), groom in black, white or grey.

    Sorry if this is making it more complicated!

    You can do whatever you want, but I agree that white dinner jackets are supposed to be worn in the early afternoon only during summer (between Memorial Day and Labor Day).  I personally think the black tuxedo jacket looks best next to a blush dress.  Jazz him up with accessories to make him stand out instead.
