My Dress is white. My colors and purple and silver (girls in deep purple and groomsmen in silver vest and tie and black tux).
My Fiance wants to wear black tux with black vest and black tie which I think looks very classic. Then I heard that he should wear a white vest and white tie since my dress is white. Does it matter?
What is your guy wearing?? Will the black vest/tie be ok?

My colors are very similar to yours. My dress is white also. Originally, we were planning on Fiance wearing a white vest and tie but we just didn’t like to the look of it. The tuxes we chose are grey. FI’s groomsmen will be wearing purple ties and pocket squares to match the bridesmaids and he will be wearing the grey vest, tie and pocket square that “goes with” the tux.
Here’s a photo:
I think it’s completely a personal choice as to whether or not your Fiance wears the white vest and tie. Go with what you guys think looks best!

I don’t think it matters really. I agree with you and think the black vest/tie look classic. I just prefer it over the white vest/tie. My dress is white, but Mr. C will be wearing a black vest/tie with his tux.

I think your Fiance can wear the black. If you like the classic look, then go for it!
My Fiance and the Groomsmen are all wearing light gray suits, not tuxes, with dark gray ties that will match the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. My Fiance will wear a lighter gray tie or a white tie.

Ooh, we have the same colors! My Groom is wearing a black tux, silver vest, and a white tie, while his groomsmen are wearing the black tux, silver vest, and dark purple ties to match the ladies. Both of our dads will be wearing black tuxes with black ties and vests. I think whatever look you like will work!!

My dress is blush pink, and my wedding colors are pink, grey, white and tiffany’s blue. My guy is wearing a faded black (light grey) vest from JCrew with a casual pinstriped grey/white dress shirt underneath and some grey khakis with converses. He will be wearing a slanted striped tie that is grey, dark pink, and a blush pink. The groomsmen will all be wearing white shirts with grey khakis and solid blush pink ties and converses. The bridesmaids all have grey chiffon dresses with blush pink shoes that match my dress design. The flower girls are all wearing tutu’s that I have had custom made for them in grey and blush pink. As for my doggies one has a blush pink bow tie/collar and leash the other has the same but with a flower. 🙂 I can’t wait!

@robsgirl1: EXACTLY the same. Seriously. BMs in dark purple dresses, GMs in silver vests and ties, Fiance in black tux/vest/bowtie.
Go for it!
ETA: Tuxes are usually true white. Unless your wedding dress is true white also (not Diamond white, ivory. etc.) it may look yellowish next to him.

@RoundSolitaire: Plus I like the fact the guys vest don’t “match” the girls dresses. I do have 1 Jr. Bridesmaid wearing Silver so that will tie it all in niceley. Just wanted to throw that out there too. I think the silver vests/ties for the men will pull in the silver perfectly! You’ll have to send me pics after your wedding!
