To preface our colours are ivory and blush with touches of gold and navy
So yesterday I finally picked my dress – Maggie Sottero Rosamund in ivory lace over blush. The blush makes the dress look warm but not PINK (the shop doesn’t allow photos in samples but it’s all over google/the bee).
Now the guys were always going to wear navy 3 piece suits with light blush pink ties and navy/white patterned pocket squares with pink buttonholes. However I did everything back to front and bought the bridesmaid dresses before I bought my wedding dress – and they are blush pink!
I’m now concerned that it’ll be too much pink? I never imagined I’d go for a blush toned dress so didn’t foresee this at all! I love the bridesmaid dresses so really don’t want to change them – I’ve attached a picture – sorry if its huge I’m on my phone!
At the moment I’m thinking pink ties but changing to white rose buttonholes for the guys? Or navy ties and keep the pink flowers?

I don’t think it’s to much pink. In my opinion everything will look beautiful.

Personally I think the guys should have just one pink item, so if you keep the pink ties then yes, change the buttonholes to white. A white rose will look lovely and classic! If it was me I would have navy ties with pink buttonholes but I totally understand wanting to keep the ties matching the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.

I think you are over worrying. The Rosamund in ivory over blush does not read as pink. It reads as ivory.
One option would be for the men to wear a classic tie- navy with pink pin dots. Not quite so prom-ish as their ties matching the BM’s dresses.

Thank you all – you are right I probably am other thinking it! I think it’s the commitment to the dress!
Im not too fussed about ties matching the bridesmaid dress, just that they tie (unintended pun) in in general.
