I am having a color similar to Pool (a Tiffany Blue) from David’s Bridal.  I am going to try to find matching blue vests for my groom/smen with a black suit or tux.  Haven’t decided on if it will be a suit or tux yet!

EDIT: A blue flower would be nice too! Brain farting on what those are called. :/

@KristaJenkins:  How about grey suits/tuxes with a grey/silvery tie? maybe a blue shirt underneath?

I love these looks:

 

Then if you want more color, you could give them fun socks that match the girls, like this:

 

That said, I don’t really subscribe to the notion that Bridesmaid or Best Man & Groomsmen must be matchy matchy. I like when they compliment each other but aren’t 100% matching.

How versatile, you could really go for anything. I would probably choose grey and charcoal, with black or matching waistcoats. Blue or silver ties, or a complementary colour (like pale blue or yellow).

 

If you wanted to go casual you could always do pale linen suits, or formal tuxes would look great. Loads of options!

Hi, doing the same colors, we are doing charcoal gray, white shirts and a gray/silver stripe tie.

@LMD:  Men’s Warehouse is somehow connected to David’s Bridal so you’ll find Pool as one of the color options.

I think that black suits with ivory vests would look sophisticated. I’m not a fan of the matchy-matchy bridesmaids to groomsmen look. It’s very prom.

@KristaJenkins:  what about grey tuxedos?  light grey for the gm and charcoal for the groom.  or all the same colour grey.
