My first post on Wedding Bee!
So here is my situation: I am planning on having my bridesmaids wear black cocktail dresses (I think it will look classy). Now my fiance heard that and now he wants his groomsmen to wear white suits while he wears a black suit, so that everyone will be paired up black with white. While I do think that idea would look pretty good I am not so sure how I feel about it for my wedding. I thought only the bride wears white? And if either my dress or their suits are slightly off white it will look like one of us is wearing something dirty.
What do you ladies think?

Welcome to wedding bee. 🙂
My younger sister’s husband wore a white suit and it just looked…weird to me. But it’s ultimately up to you and your fi! A
Oh also, I believe it would be hard (especially for guys..hehe) to keep white suits clean!

@sophie85:That’s one thing I’m worried about! I know those guys, they tend to spill a lot, and if it rains, what if someone steps in a puddle? I am leaning against it, but really, I gave him full choice of his guys attire.

I personally am not a fan of white suits. I think only the bride should wear white, and I often find that when I see a picture of a bride and groom in white the shades of white don’t quite match.

Are these white suits or white tuxes?
White tuxes- No way! I have never really cared for them and I think look cheap.
White suits? Well…that’s something I haven’t thought about. I’m still inclined to lean no… but they may work if styled right.

A full white suit? Not a fan. Looks a bit…I don’t know…cheap?
Alternatively, a nice white dinner jacket with black tie/slacks would look nice. Like this.
Although, it might look nicer to have your groom in that ensemble and the groomsmen/bridesmaids all in black…

I don’t know how i’d be with the groom in black and then the gm in white… I’ve seen this where the groom is in white and then the rest of the guys in brown/black..
We had ALL of our guys in white with my girls in truffle and it looked fantastic! I was SOOO worried about it through planning but I’m glad we did it.
You can see them all on my recaps
It can definitely be pulled off and look great, just all depends on what you want =)

Yeah, we would have the groom in black and just the groomsmen in white, and it would be white suits not white tuxes. I just keep thinking of Colonel Sanders…but I do think it’s a cool idea. But we’ll see what he decides anyways!

Many groomsmen are in white linen for beach weddings, but then again so is the groom.
