I think 3 Cala Lillies would be way too much. Do the guys have to have lily’s?? Is there any other smaller flower that you are using in bouquets that they could use??

 

If your Groomsmen are wearing purple vests and ties, then your groom should be in silver/silver.

 

He’s the groom, he’s the one standing next to the bride in the giant white dress…I dont think peoples are going to have a hard time picking him out 🙂

Have him in a totally different color. What is HIS favorite color? (red, green, etc…) And choose the vest and tie in his favorite color. Leave the other men as they are.

Go with 2 calla lilies. Three will be too much.

He will stand out by virtue of standing where the groom stands and being next to the woman in the pretty white dress, often kissing her. You really don’t need to make him stand out so if none of the options work, just don’t do them.

If it’s not too late to go back and change your mind, what if you kept all the vests the same but changed the color of his tux? Instead of black, maybe gray, or tan?

@kgarvin01:  Are the tuxes black? White is more formal than black, so if they are black, you could put him in white or ivory.

I know you said you didn’t like silver, but that’s what we did. When we were in the tux shop I agree with you… It looked SO weird and I really fought Darling Husband on it (he really wanted the silver tux). But in photos, he stood out and it all looked really great together:

Darling Husband wore all black, it’s his favorite “color.”

Granted, our guys wore purple-green-purple-green because Darling Husband wanted his other favorite color more involved, since the girls all wore purple. haha. Don’t ask. I thought it was fine.

@kgarvin01:  Hmmmm, can you show us the shade of purple?? That might help us find a better color that won’t clash, but will stand out. There are so many different shades of purple!!

I like the idea of the groom wearing a different colored tie than the groomsmen

Why not give him the purple vest, then, and put the rest of the guys in gray/silver?

My Fiance is wearing a bow tie, his groomsmen are wearing straight ties. That is the only difference.
