My dad wore a grey vest with a black suit and it looked fine (it was kind of a shiny dark gray)  Grey vest with grey suit would look nice… otherwise… maybe blue?  Dunno maybe the others will have ideas!

I think vests are so cute! When else do men get to wear them without looking silly? It’s the perfect occasion to wear one and it definitely distinguishes them from the rest of the guests.

Grey vest would look nice with black suit. Hah, I’d actually say matching grey vest would look best with the grey suit, especially if you don’t want the vest to match the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.

What are your wedding colors? Even if the vests dont match the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, you could reflect your color palette in the vests by choosing a shade from your colors.

I agree – shiny = ick. I haven’t done any research yet on vests so I don’t know what non-shiny options are out there, but I’m sure you’d be able to find some out there. Def talk to a suit shop…even give men’s wearhouse a call and see what they have in non-shiny options.

With that color palette, I would say not a black vest (immediately makes me think of waiters, and you don’t want them confused with waiters :P) UNLESS they will be wearing a tie, then I guess they wouldn’t look like waiters.

Charcoal grey might be so dark that it would almost come out looking black…if you don’t mind going a little lighter in the grey spectrum it would look good.

OR you could also do white vests to match their shirts…that would look neat.

(I think if you make the guys wear a vest in that ocean blue color they will prob not like you…! So good call on that one)
