Why don’t you pick the shade of coral and then have them buy from that dress line?  They could still choose their dress but you’d have all the same shade of dresses therefore nixing the groomsmen outfit issue.

@alotlikelove:  Maybe round up the ties for them yourself? That way you’re sure to have a mix that you like. If you leave it to the men I’m sort of picturing three will have the exact same shade, one will have a hot pink tie, and another will come in some sort of orange. At least that’s what would happen with most of the men I know Tongue Out


This site has inexpensive ties and some even in stripes. Maybe one plain coral, one a different shade, one with stripes, or a skinnier tie etc? Or ebay could have a good tie or two.

ETA: Or you could maybe have them pick all different neutral ties? Different patterns on an ivory tie for example and then just give them all matching coral-coloured boutonnieres.

@alotlikelove:  Give them their ties, though coral is not normally a good tie colour.  What are your other colours, and what else are the guys wearing?

How about different variations on buttonholes? I am not sure it would look right to have their ties in different shades of coral? I didn’t think there were that many shades of coral to choose from! It sounds as though your bridesmaids will be fairly matching anyway, as long as it’s just the style that varies.

I think it’s acceptable to have bridesmaid variations, and have all the groomsmen in matching outfits… but that’s just my opinion!
