- Wedding: July 2011
Hello everyone! I’d really appreciate some opinions on our tuxedos.. I thought this was going to be much more straight forward than it’s turning out to be.. yikes.
As a bit of background, my bridesmaids are wearing black Alfred Angelo dresses, and their sashes are their “blue jay” colour. Their flowers are blue hydrangeas, and mine are blue hydrangeas and white roses.
We went this afternoon to look at tuxedo rentals (Moores and Tip Top) and we cannot find a tie/vest colour that matches the ‘blue jay’ perfectly. The saleslady at the stores thought that, because we’re not able to find a perfect match for the ‘blue jay’ sash, perhaps having a black vest and just a blue tie would make the colour mis-match a little less obvious.
To sum up, here are our options. We’re having black jacket/pants for all:
1. Black shirt, black vest, and a light blue tie for the groomsmen, and same but with a white tie for the groom. (too much black for a July wedding?)
2. White shirt, black vest, and light blue tie for groomsmen, and white tie for the groom.(will a white tie get lost in the white shirt?) – I like this option best, though my fiance seems set on wanting a black shirt…
Also, what if the groomsmen wore a black vest and blue tie, and the groom wore a white vest and white tie? Is that too much of a mis-match?
Thanks so much, everyone. I’d love to see any pictures of your own groomsmen too! 🙂
