We did black suits and grey suits with light grey shirts. And the girls wore eggplant purple dresses too. Choose whatever you like, don’t worry about what’s been done! You have to love it!

Hi @Rayswifey: I see this is your Debut Post on WBee… so a BIG Welcome to “the Hive”

Question… have you tried GOOGLING your colour choices for the Wedding

Such as – Purple and Orange Wedding –

GOOGLE IMAGES =  http://www.google.ca/search?q=purple+and+orange+wedding&rlz=1W1TSCA_enCA455&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=WCCgUYffD5Kq4APb9YCADA&sqi=2&ved=0CCsQsAQ&biw=1366&bih=612

Mess around with variables…

– Purple and Orange Groom – etc.

That usually brings up some great pics, ideas, inspiration…

OR there is always Pinterest.

Hope this helps,

@Rayswifey:  I think you could do BMs in purple, and then groomsmen in black with purple shirt and a tie with orange stripes, similar to these:

@NLbride:  Yes, this is an excellent idea. OP, our guys wore purple shirts and very dark grey suits and looked fantastic. You can bring the orange in subtly with orange in the boutonniere or one of the very nice striped ties posted above.

@Rayswifey:  I think if you are willing to compromise and go with a white shirt, the colors could be pulled together with a purple and orange tie and/or boutonniere.

Black, purple and orange are all strong colors. I think a white shirt will make the groomsmen look dressy rather than costumey.
