So happy to find this board! We are leaning towards navy bridesmaid dresses for our spring wedding. My fiance is going to wear a black suit (he wants to customize his outfit b/c tuxes never fit him well… barrel chested, 5’6", and adorable) and the groomsmen will be in black tuxedos. We would like to incorporate aqua and more of an apple green. He wants to buy the groomsmen their ties. Would navy and green striped ties look okay? We can’t seem to decide. He wants to wear a green tie to stand out from his guys. Any advice?

Mainebride, I found the tie at a Dillards actually. It was a little bit of a search but I saw some in Dillards again this past weekend. The tie he has is a Tommy Hilfiger tie, its not exactly the same one as that photo but very close. I know that J Crew has a similiar styled tie, a little more collegiate looking.
I’m so surprised that there are other girls out there doing the same colors, kind of exciting! Anne Taylor Loft has a lot of the navy blue and green in their spring line if anyone is looking for bridesmaid dresses or party dresses for the bride.

sgarrison2 — the tuxes were black with pinstripes from Afterhours Formalwear. I think the pinstripes helped blend them in with the navy dresses.
