I’m getting married in Februrary in Floriday, Saturday night, but NOT a black tie wedding so tuxes are out. My colors are ivory and navy blue with the bridesmaids dresses in navy chiffon. Fiance is in the Marine Corps so he’ll be wearing his dress blues (which oddly enough is actually a black jacket). What color should the groomsmen’s suits be??? Black makes me think of a funeral director or an IRS agent. So, charcoal gray, gray pinstripe or navy blue suits? I’d kind of like them to wear ivory ties to really tie in the colors but a navy blue tie would be fine. I just can’t visualize which suit colors would look best. Help!

I think a gray suit would look good with the Bridesmaid or Best Man navy blue dresses. If Groomsmen wore navy blue, too, it might be too much.

I agree with charmbracelet — go with gray to complement the girls

I like gray w/ navy ties, to go with the girls’ dresses (but not *too* much). Ivory ties would look good, too.

I would go with plain gray, but not gray pinstripe.

The gray sounds like it would go nicely!

I like your idea of doing gray suits! That way your leading man will stand out from the rest of the guys and it will still look great with the rest of the colors!

I like a grey with navy tie. I think it would compliment everything else, and your Fiance would really stand out, not that he wouldn’t anyway…but you know what I mean!

I think a darker shade of grey would be suitable. as long as it isn’t too light to lack contrast with the tie color I think it will be ok.
I agree that if the entire wedding party were wearing navy it would be too much.

I have almost the same dilemma, my Fiance is wearing his army dress blues uniform and I was thinking about having the groomsmen wear light gray suits and the bridemaids baby blue. I cant imagine how it will look all togheter, but I have some pictures of my idea in my post:
My vote is for gray suits, maybe not as light as mine but a darker gray…. Whatever you decide I would like to see pictures!! Good luck
