    I think it looks great!

    It looks good, atypical, but not in a bad way.

    It looks kinda silly, I'm not really a fan.

    That's just bad. Like Dumb and Dumber bad. Please don't.

    @atreyu547:  I totally agree… I definitely wouldn’t wear it, but if the groom is dead set on it, not a lot to be done.  I’m hoping he finds the pink winchester an interesting enough idea.

    Yesterday you were saying he wanted to postpone the wedding…I hope you’ve had a serious conversation to resolve that; otherwise, attire is the least of the issues.

    @HonoraryNerd:  I say go for it! I like the blue shirt/pink bowtie combo myself as long as its not a baby blue/baby pink combo. He should rock it out, he seems like the type that in 20 years will think the quirkiness is awesome if not the style, and smile about it, not regret it. 

    my Fiance rocks the bowties and my mom and I are currently working on convincing him he can have his groomsmen all wear them too.

    @Feist:  I agree that a blue shirt, and a dark pink bow tie, woould also work.  I would switch the pocket square to navy, (on a grey suit) or light blue (on a navy suit).

    @Bebealways:  I don’t think the ruffles get better, or worse, in any colour.  They remain constantly terrible.

    @HannahGrace:  Perhaps, to add flair, a hat like this?

    This hat is a navy blue Homburg.  Would look great with the charcoal and pink.  Be more interesting than a grey one.

    I also saw a pink one on ebay, but it won’t let me link the picture.  He could also get a blue, and add a pink band to it.  It’s not a great idea, as that makes it pretty matchy-matchy, and makes it look more like a costume for a dance number, but it might satisfy his affinity for the outlandish.

    It looks like in that 3rd pic, the shirt only has ruffles on each side of the button placket instead of layers of ruffles. I think that is what helps it look more sleek, and will also help it sit nicer underneath a vest. I’d look for a shirt like that. Also, ruffle shirts seem to be more intensely colored than normal men’s shirts. The shirt in the 3rd pic is also more refined in color. If you look for those 2 elements, along with a 3 piece suit, will help him look less silly & more formal while still having flair. I would NOT put his guys in ruffled shirts, though. That would be too much. Plus, he should stand out.
