We need your help to coordinate our groomsmen’s ties with my bridesmaids’ mismatched dresses!
My FI picked out a suit from Men’s Wearhouse which he and the GMs will all rent:
My FI wants to wear a black tie, so he would look just like the model in the picture. We wanted the GMs to wear a different tie to create some contrast. But since my BMs are wearing mismatched dresses, we’re having trouble brainstorming tie colors for the guys!
The girls are wearing J. Crew silk chiffon dresses in various styles, in the dusty shale (light green) color, gray, and shades of pink and lilac. Here’s some examples:
Also, FWIW, we’re having a vintage-themed wedding, and some of the decor will have gold in it. Not too much gold, but gold-framed chalkboards and things like that. My dress has some silver beading on it though, and I will be wearing silver shoes and earrings. We’re not too matchy-matchy, can you tell?
FI wants the GMs to wear silver ties. Do you think we should go with silver, or something else? Help!

What about a print that might match all colors? Something like these:

I’d probably choose a multicolored tie, perhaps checked or with diagonal lines, that incorporated either mint or lilac.

Ohh I love those ideas, thanks girls!

either a multicoloured tie, or if you have the same number of groomsmen as bridesmaids, have each of them wear a tie that matches a bridesmaid’s colour dress

Love the multicolored idea! 😀 Good luck with that!

Do you want them all to match?
We got our ties at tiebar.com, they have a ton of selections!

I have no idea about tie colours, it is something I will definitely need help with closer to my wedding. But I just had to say I LOVE the dresses

I too like the multicolor tie idea. If I had to pick a solid tie I would say satin light gray or silver.

@MackInChiCity: Thanks! Def just stalked that site and found soo many options. And $15 each, I love that! I’ll keep it in mind for future presents too 😉
@RunnerBride13: That second tie is so so pretty! I love how it would look with gray three-piece suits 🙂
@JMPacker: Thanks girl! We are lucky, we’ve been finding them pretty discounted off of eBay. Gotta love that!
@beachbride1216: Ok thanks for the tip! We’ll see what FI thinks about multicolored ties.

I guess I should have chosen gold, but I went with other. See if you can find patterned ties in golds!

Why not pair each groomsmen and bridesmaids up, meaning a complementing tie to each of the dress colors.
This site has neckties for all of J.Crew’s dress colors. Prices start at less than $10. here is a link to ties that apparently match j.crew’s colors:
Otherwise I suggest mixing it up even more. Some GMs wear bow ties, other neckties, some have skinny ties, some have a pocket square. etc. This could be a nice look if the suits are also slightly different.
