“she said she didn’t see her son in a grey suit for his wedding and wanted him to wear black.”

Thankfully it’s not up to her what anyone wears. If it’s in SoCal, you can get away with it, definitely. In a place where the season changing is noticable, maybe not.

Seriously, go with what you want. Don’t listen to unsolicited advice.

jmtwxoxo: Alright then, I can definitely relate to having a Fiance like that. 

I would stick with Tan or Grey. Black is probably going to look too harsh anyway with the colors you described – and in SoCal I think your need to “fit the season” is really negligable. You pretty much have a dry season and a rainy season, not “Summer” and “Winter”.

Just make sure when you make the descision, he’s on your side 100% and is not going to be swayed by his mother saying she wants him to be in black/thinks he will look better in black/insert other things she might try here. If I’ve learned nothing else from these boards, I’ve learned that weddings make people crazy about things they normally wouldn’t care about – Like suit colors!

ETA: Just wanted to add that tan is harder to wear than grey, so it’s going to depend on your Groom and Groom’s mens’ skin tones.

jmtwxoxo:  I didn’t follow any seasonal rules and chose blush and silver for my colors for my fall wedding. I also did a pink cherry blossom theme and Groomsmen wore grey suits because that’s what hubby wanted. Where I live the weather in the fall can vary widely between warm and sunny or freezing temperatures and snow. Don’t worry about other people’s opinions. It’s not their wedding, it’s yours! ๐Ÿ™‚

jmtwxoxo:  Your colour scheme  would look best with  grey for the men  I think, but then I don’t like the idea of tan  suits for any occasion  ! Having  said that  however,  I think what Americans call tan, others call beige – though I might be wrong  about  that.

If by tan you mean  the  soft light beigey colour in the first picturet hen that’s different,  but if you mean  that fairly  bright  orange brown in the second   , then no.

I agree with pps about black  –  if you  don’t want it and Fiance doesn’t  care  – tough  FMIL, not your call !

The seasonal rules about color for a wedding are ridiculous.  Do what you want.

Go with what you like and will make you happy.  It’s not like you’re up here in Manitoba where snow in October is a common occurance.  

A light grey would also be nice, skintones depending.

But if the rest of the wedding is a light, romantic colour palette (blush, gold, cream, etc) then black suits/tuxedos might look harsh.
