Hi, we’re having a rustic chic outdoor wedding in November. I only have one bridsemaid and she’s wearing chocolate brown. My main wedding color is cherry red, so that’s what color the men’s ties will be.
What color should my groom wear? I saw an amazing chocolate pin stripe blazer somewhere online but of course it provided no info about where it was from. I haven’t seen any other brown suits that I like so far. I’ve seen the debate posted here previously about chocolate brown suits. I just can’t think what he could wear that wouldn’t clash with the other colors going on.
Any suggestions? If so, any ideas of where to look for that type of suit? Seems like black, blue and grey might clash with the brown and red and would make for too many colors. Or is one of those colors neutral or complementary to what we’ve got going on?

Perhaps the groom could wear a chocolate brown suit and a light pink tie? The pink could distinguish him as the groom and would go well with the brown. What color is your dress? Is it white, ivory, or cream? You could add cream or ivory to his look instead of a third color that isn’t in your original wedding color scheme if it would match your dress. Maybe he could even wear white or ivory with a chocolate brown tie. White tuxes can look either very classy or very tacky, depending on the venue, the time of day, and (ofcourse) the groom.
Hope I have given you some ideas! Best of luck!

What about a beige suit? Then you could do a chocalate brown tie or a red one.

I am having chocolate brown and a deep red for our wedding next september. However, I went to a wedding last year with black tuxs and brown vest and ties and it actually didn’t look bad at all! I think that is what we’re going to do.
Also, I went to Men’s Wearhouse today and they had a new brown suit that was very nice. The sign said it just came out.

brown tux and suits are becoming very popular (and rentable). i also love the beige idea stated above. i think a man in a light color suit look extra ‘clean’ and very handsome… my fi has no choice but to wear a white or ivory tux. good luck!

Calvin Klein has some nice brown tuxes. I’d be having this if i was having a tux-worthy affair, for sure.

Hi! I am using Men’s Wearhouse’s chocolate brown tuxes. They are fantastic. It would look good with the red tie and a red vest and a red boutineer! Yay! Have the girls carry red flowers too and it will all tie together. I love your colors. So original.
