I want to know if what I am envsioning will look weird…! Our wedding colours are blush pink, vintage aqua and ivory. The men will be in medium gray tuxes. I want to put the girls in “pearl pink” and I want the guys to have “seaside” ties and pocket squares. I was thinking of having the girls wear light aqua assessories (necklace, earrings, bracelet). Fiance will be wearing an ivory tie to match my dress. Will it look weird to have the bridesmaids dresses not match the mens ties/pocket squares? I have posted the colours below. Thanks so much for the help!

I’d need to see the size of the jewelry you’re talking about…if it’s tiny and very subtle, I think it would look awesome. If it’s bigger/more obvious, I think it might look a little strange.

There’s a lot of different colours going on there. It may be hard to match the aqua ties with the jewellery, but keep it simple and you should be fine

I think for the mens ties, do something non-satin. The satin doesn’t look very “vintage” to me. I think this could be done – if done right! If you’re going for a vintage feel, go for more flowy dresses (not sure if you were using the dresses & ties in the picture, or if that was just the color you were wanting to show us).
This wedding took place at my venue BUT I love the blush pink Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses (from J. Crew) http://www.vuephotographyonline.net/2011/mad-love/
And ties like these maybe?
or even a cute gingham?

I guess I could always have the bridesmaids in the seaside blue colour, have the guys in the pink ties, and tie it all together with pink flowers & boutonnieres (instead of matching the accessories to the mens ties/pocketsquares). Thoughts?

@MrMrs.S: You could always have the BMs bouquets tied with a fat seaside ribbon, and then you don’t need to find seaside jewelry. I agree with PP about non-satin ties to make it more vintage, but I do love those dresses even though they don’t look vintage.

I really like the green jewelry idea if you can find it, I think that would give a sweet vintage feel.
I think the pink is a great Bridesmaid or Best Man color, seaside blue might not be as universally flattering (there was some grumbling about mint in my wedding party). We went very mismatched, so I’m biased (guys have both green and pink ties if you can’t quite tell) –

@Cecilia37: Love the pink bridesmaid dresses! Which designer are they?

I think the look you have is lovely, and to be honest I don’t think it needs to be matching. But then again, nothing matches in our wedding! So maybe that’s just my preference. I love the pink dresses, I wanted that color for my bridesmaids but they didn’t like it at all. I think the dresses would look great with the tie colour you have picked

@IUrebekah3RT: So I saw your picture and you are wearing the same dress as me! You look so beautiful in it! One question, did you wear a slip or anything to give the dress more volume? Also, where did you get your flower girl and bridesmaid dresses?

@MrMrs.S: Actually they all bought their own and none of them were bridesmaids dresses. The one on the left was an Etsy seller, the middle was Donna Morgan I think. If you like a certain dress PM me and I’ll find out about it.

I love it. You can pull the colors together in a bracelet. KIMSMITH on Etsy does beaded cluster bracelets. You could do the three colors and they come with free earrings. Her pieces are beautiful.

The wedding party doesn’t have to match, they can co-ordinate instead. These colours look like they compliment eachother failry well, I don’t see any problems with your vision, just keep the jewlery understated.
