Oh wow, that’s so cute!! I can definitely see it as an adorable little touch, especially if the bridesmaids are going the mismtached route. I think what’s important is just being sure they all match or have a common theme, just like the girls usually are given specific guidelines to stay withint, even if they are choosing the cut and whatnot.

Personally I don’t think we’d go this route because I’m weirdly obsessed with everything matching, so the girls will all have matching dresses and the boys matching suits. They will all have different ties however and various shades of purple, and my SO will more than likely be wearing something completely different from them.

My guys were in mid grey suits they chose themselves with mismatched grey ties.


I think juse saying “dress for the country” – in the English sense – would be great.  There are lots of resources around on what that means, and what options there are.  There is an inherent level if uniformity there, but with lots of room for one’s own tastes. It’s also very doable on a budget, with thrifted and vintage items very available.   I can go into more detail if you like on what a classic country gentleman would wear – here or via pm.

Yeah!!! I’m all about this! If we were having more Groomsmen (we’re only having one person on each side) this would definitely be the route we’d go. I can’t give you advice on exactly this but we gave Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man free reign on their attire with specifics in color palette and style. I didn’t think I really had a vision or a care about what they’d wear but apparently I did. They showed me some wonky stuff! Some stuff that was explicitly outside the description. Like really formal stuff when we specified casual. 

So just be very explicit in what you want and don’t want and provide lots of photos, especially if the guys aren’t particularly fashionable. I got the feeling that it was actually more difficult for our Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man (even before I vetoed a dress) rather than me having just told them exactly what to wear. IMO, it sure looks awesome thought! Good luck!
