Heres my Bridesmaid dress, but I'm SOOO confused with tuxes!!
Posted: Jun 25, 2009 10:45 PM



This is my bridesmaid dress, which I would like to order in navy (the color above). However, I have no idea what to do for the tuxes. I'm really worried that black tuxes would clash against the very dark navy. It is darker than it appears in this picture. Does anyone have any ideas? I looked at a midnight blue tux, but it wasn't very attractive. I'm not really experienced with tuxes, so I'm kind of clueless. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I can imagine a grey/silverish tuxedo, especially for a winter wedding.

I would agree with the previous poster about the grey suxes. My friend just got married in late may and she had grey tuxes. she also had us girls in grey dresses to match. and blue was her accent color. we had light blue shawls that matched her blue and white wedding gown, and the flowers too. she also had dark blue accents in the reception hall with the table runners and chair sashes.

it all looked very good!

I think the blue and black can work. Black is a neutral and goes with anything. Remember its not about "matching" but "going"...like Stacy and Clinton say on What Not to Wear! My husbands dress blues are black jackets and blue pants. It goes. I also like the idea of the silver/grey tuxes.

I had never thought about grey, however I'm really not sure that FH could pull off a grey tux....what do you think about charcoal?

I like the idea of grey or charcoal. I think charcoal would be very nice. Do you have another color, or just the navy? I ask this because I am doing my BM dresses in apple and the GM tuxes will be black with hunter vests and ties. That could be another way to go. I'm sure whatever you decide will be beautiful!

My colors are ice blue, silver, & white.

I found a couple of things, what do you guys think?





I really like the 2nd one

I defnantly like the second one!!! I think it wold look really nice with navy vests and ties, and then you can put FH in silver vest and tie. I think it will all look good together!

I like the second one as well. I think that will look really classy together.

I also really like the second tux. The color will look great with the bridesmaid dresses! I also really like the idea of the groomsmen in a navy vest and tie and the groom in a silver vest and tie. That would coordinate together so well!

I'm so glad that this question was posted (grey tux with navy dresses) because I am in the same boat. My wedding is September 18th and the bridesmaids dresses are navy blue. I wasn't sure about the black tux/navy dress combo. Also, my brother, who is one of the groomsmen, is finishing up U.S. Marines boot camp, so for the wedding, he asked if he could wear his dress blues (which, for me, would be an honor- he could wear a pink tutu if he wanted to, I'm proud of him either way).
Would the full on grey suit (posted ealier) with a navy vest be too much of a circus with the navy dresses and my brother's dress blues, or could going with a charcoal be a better bet?
Thanks for your time :-)

I like the grey/silver idea as well...and I'm a guy. As far as your FH possibly not being able to pull off the grey...what about him being in a white tux, and the groomsmen in grey? (Again, not all guys can pull off the white tux, and some brides abhor the white tuxes...but at least it's another option.)

I'm definitely an anti-white tux bride. Plus, it wouldn't look good on FH, he has very fair skin/hair. Charcoal will probably look the best on him out of my options. Thanks for all of your input!

I like the silver one with peak lapel.

I vote for the second one, especially with navy accents. It would look really good with your bridesmaids dresses and fits the theme well. Maybe put your FH in a slightly darker shade (charcoal) since he's the groom.
