My fiancee and I are doing something similar. We are getting married next August and we have the same idea going.

My BM’s are wearing expresso brown dresses with a blue sash. Their dress is long. The guys are wearing kahki suits with an ivory shirt and tie. Havent decided the color of the tie yet but probly will be blue, the accent color! We are going for a beach feel.

The colors you have will work great. I would either put the guys in a brown tie to match the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress, or use your accent color, green!

You could do a tie, I’d do green, but you could also do a pop of color in their flower on their suits. Make their boutonnieres something really special.

vests might look good on the guys, esp. for the level of formality you are envisioning. and green boutonnieres?

My best friend used a really similar color palatte, but the groom’s favorite color in the world is orange, so to make him happy she incorporated little pops of it all around.  The guys had orange bouts and her bouquet was orange. 

I know it’s not for everyone, but have a pop of bright color looked fab!

sorry, it wasn’t really fair of me to post that tie. It is just a pic that I had on file but I am sure there are brown and green striped ties still available.

My friend did brown with lime green accents and orange flowers. It was very cool. Here photos are at http://oconnell-cooper.com/Wedding.html – see photos with her husband for the green tie.
