We did dark blue bm dress with black tuxes – we had the guys wear ties/vests to match the dresses. I think they looked pretty nice 🙂

We did black suits with navy bm dresses and I think it looked fine. I’ve also seen photos from other weddings that paired a navy dress with a gray suit, so I think either way will work it just depends on your preference.

If your wedding is quite formal and put together it can look very chic. Crisp lines, roses, matched shoes, etc.

If other elements of your wedding are more rustic or natural — outdoor wedding with succulents and branches and a shabby chic style, then the black tuxes would look out of place. You know?

You just have to match the formality of your guys clothes to the formality of your venue and your flowers and other style elements of your wedding.

black goes with every color, regardless of what people may say. Personally thought I would do grey/charcoal instead of black

My colors where navy blue, silver and white. We did navy blue for BM’s dresses and black tuxes with white shirts and silver vests and ties for the guys

Black, grey or charcoal will all work.

@AshleyM623: I definitely prefer yellow and navy with gray. Black wouldn’t look terrible but gray would look very sharp.

Gray tuxes can be hard to find. It took us months to find dark gray vests for our GM’s. It’s not impossible, but you might have to go for more of a suit style than a full on tux.

@AshleyM623: Very nice. I think that would look great with a dark navy. Maybe with a navy tie and a yellow bout 🙂
