Maybe have the men wear navy blue suits to “match” the groom and groomsmen wearing dress blues, and give your girls a color to wear. Then have the guy’s ties match the dresses.

I think having your girls in different dresses but maybe same color and fabric and then have the all the men in the bridal party who are not in uniform wear the same tux/suit would look great. I also have a man standing on my side (he’s my Maid/Matron of Honor – man of honor) and he will be wearing the same tux as the groomsmen standing up with my Fiance. I have 2 girls and they are in similar dresses (same color and fabric) but completely different dresses. I think it will be cohesive and look great!

Oh, and tell your Fiance and his best man thank you for serving…my Fiance and I are both veterans and can relate to the sacrifices you and him are having to make to be together!!

It’s easy to find pics of mismatched bridesmaids, a little harder for groomsmen (or bridesmen!). But here are a few pics. I like the mismatched look as much as or more than the matched look. It shows that you chose these folks because you wanted them up there, not because you wanted perfect pictures. (Not that the pictures are bad!) Given your circumstances I think the most you should do is give people a general color scheme to stick with but don’t try to make anyone match.

My girls were mismatched – I just gave them shawls as gifts to sort of time them together.
