Help! I just had a horrible realization! I read Mrs. Hyena’s post http://www.weddingbee.com/2011/06/22/a-life-full-of-laughter-whats-that-i-hear/#more-203125 and realized that in my July wedding, the guys will most likely have thier coats off most of the time after the ceremony. I have chosen Navy Blue Wedding suits from Jos.A. Banks . My groom will have a white vest and tie and my groomsmen will have pink vests and ties.
The girls are in navy dresses and will have pink bouquets.
When the guys take off thier coats…do you think they will look silly with a pink vest and tie over thier white shirts?

OMG no…people do this all of the time. I love men in pink anyways.

They may not thank you for it, but I think it will look great either way!

I think it would look more polished with a pink tie instead of a vest, actually. Not because it’s too “girly” but because colored vests remind me of bad prom suits.

The vests are probably a different color in the back? That’s usually the case.
Either way, I think they’re fine in pink/pink 🙂

Won’t vests be a bit hot for an outdoor wedding in July?
My personal opinion is pink vests + pink ties remind me of prom.
The guys in white shirts, blue pants and pink ties would compliment the bridesmaids nicely, IMO.

I’m not really a fan of colored vests, but I do like pink.

@MassageBee: They will hate you for it. My Fiance and his friends said no pink when they found out it was in the color scheme. It will look great in photos. What does your Fiance want?

There is NOTHING wrong with men wearing pink and it will look fine on them. I really wouldn’t worry about it

I don’t know many guys who actually like wearing pink, minus metrosexuals.
If your guys have to have pink I would limit it to a pink tie.
And agreed what does your Fiance think?

I would probably stick with the pink tie, but do away with the pink vests. My guys were fine with fuschia/hot pink pocket squares/hankies and bouts, but I’m not sure how they’d feel about pink ties and vests.
P.S. I think the shade of pink and the material of the vest is also a determining factor.

Ooo a blue pin stripe vest with a blue suit and a pink tie would look fab!

I had a VERY pink wedding. My GM’s had pink bowties and black vests because I didn’t want the crazy matchy matchy (b/c my girls dresses matched the bowties). No one seemed to mind. I think it helps that it was in the south and most of the GM’s wear pink on a regular basis (men’s fashion is much different down there).

Guys wear pink all the time, but I am also not a major fan of bright colored vests, my guys are wearing a bright tie though
