I think it too hard to match perfectly. It would be nice. But I’ll be happy if everything “goes”. Know what I mean?

The tux vests match exactly (I’m doing Mori Lee Turquoise which is similar to a Tiffany Blue, just a tad more green) and the only other things I’m thinking about matching are the bouquet wraps and a ribbon around the vase for the centerpiece at the reception. The girls will be wearing fuchsia shoes and the flowers will be fuchsia and plum. You’ll be surprised at what is out there that matches. It’s personal preference though. I didn’t want the bridesmaids shoes and purses and accessories to match, and even though the ceremony is all about the turquoise and fuchsia and plum, our reception is more about the black and white damask, with just some accents of the other colors, namely the centerpieces.

I’m the same, I’d like for it to match perfectly but it’s just not possible when you’re buying from so many different places–unless your colors are black and white ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m hoping that nothing clashes and getting things in the same color family.

I agree with the majority.  Unless you’re getting all material from the same company, which is nearly impossible, most likely colors won’t be an exact match in hue.  As long as everything is deep purple in some shade for my wedding, I’ll be ok.  Like everyone said, as long as it doesn’t clash or stand out too bad, it’s ok if everything is not the exact same hue.  We’re having a dimly lit Friday evening wedding so it should be ok.

My colors are purple and orange and I’m going to have different purples and different oranges throughout the decor, Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, etc. I’m not worried about it.

No, I don’t want the headache of matching my colors perfectly. I’m having Fuchsia Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, and we’re getting our guys plaid fuchsia bow ties… probably won’t be the same colors, but I figure if it’s plaid then it will be fine. I can’t think of anythng else that we would have to match. Their vests will just be the same color as their suits, and our linens will be either ivory or chocolate brown. Our centerpieces will have some pinks in them, but probably won’t match the BMs as far as I know. I’m going for whatever is the cheapest ๐Ÿ™‚
