I can’t decide!
Our wedding colors are soft neutrals. Off white, tan, beige, chocolate, etc. Anything in that family. Anything metallic will be silver. With spashes (JUST splashes) of lavender. Mostly because I don’t think brown flowers would look nice and I don’t want just white flowers. We’re having a winter wedding, so the ladies’s attendant gifts are nice coats in complimentary colors to their gowns (mismatched dresses in the tan/brown family). All their dresses will be long.
So I have 3 ideas for the boys (and best groomswoman)
A tan/khaki sort of suit. Groom would have ivory/champange vest and tie. The other boys would have silver/gray vest and ties. The groomswoman would wear a dress in a shade of tan or light brown and recieve a brown coat. I suppose I could do some kind of brown and tan vest and tie combination but that feels…..70s.
CON: Are khaki suits weird? Would the whole bridal party look like one massive glob of tan, with me in the middle? Would the khaki suits with silver vests and ties (on the groomsmen) clash?
Gray suits. Groom would have ivory/champange vest and tie. Groomsmen would have silver/gray vests and ties. Groomswoman would wear a gray/gunmetal dress.
CON: Would the neutral dresses on the bridesmaids clash with the gray? What color of coat for the groomswoman (black would be literally the only black in the entire wedding).
Gray suits, BUT groom wears one that is lighter or darker than the other men. He wears ivory/champange vest and tie. THe other guys wear silver/gray vests and ties. Groomswoman wears a gray/gunmetal dress.
CON: Again, would the neutral dresses on the bridesmaids clash with the gray? And with mismatched bridesmaids dresses, mismatched suits, and everything else, is the bridal party too busy? Same about the groomswoman’s coat.
