@aleidafunsize: Our colors are red and white so my BMs are going to be wearing red dresses, I actually like navy blue and black together you would just need a lot of light LOL

I am going to jump in here and suggest that because your Fiance will be wearing his dress blues that it would make more sense for the guys to wear tuxes. Slacks would, in my opinion, be too casual.

Thinking of the look in my head I think I would prefer the look of the slacks and shirts so that it makes your FH stand out more

@aleidafunsize: I think white tuxes wouldn’t be bad at all! you could have them have navy blue vest and ties or something =))

“The most recognizable uniform of the Marine Corps is the Blue Dress uniform, often seen in recruiting advertisements. It is often called “Dress Blues” or simply “Blues”. It is equivalent in composition and use to civilian black tie.”

It would therefore be a little too casual for the groomsmen to be in slacks without a jacket.

They should at least be in a dark suit.

White tuxes might look a little odd in January.

I think navy tuxes or navy suits (maybe a 3 piece suit) would look nice.
