*****Brown Tux*****

Hey Ladies! I need your help. My wedding colors are coral,chocolate brown and cream. I would love for the groomsmen to wear brown tux with coral or cream vest and ties. What do you think? The FI is really not too sure about the brown tux! Please help!!

    I love brown tuxes and although I couldn't get my husband to buy into it *butt head :)* I still think it's elegant. Is there a striped coral/cream vest that emphasizes the cream? I'm worried that the coral alone would prove distracting. Here are some pics of my fave brown ones. Also, this past March Men's Warehouse Tux had a chocolate brown tux with cream vest/tie on display and I just couldn't take my eyes off of it. I wonder if it is still on display. http://tinypic.com/r/2rm2h52/3

    Good morning...my cousin got married last October and her colors were chocolate brown, champagne and cream .  The guys wore chocolate brown tuxes with the cream vest & ties and the bms wore champagne dresses and her MOH(s) wore chocolate brown dresses.  It really looked good together.  i'll email you a pic to fb.

    Check out my Bio, my guts wore brown pinstriped suits and they look hot. It even surprised them how well they looked in the suits. leading up to the wedding all I heard was "are we still wearing doo-do brown suits".

    Okay, I've seen brown tuxes and they do look great.  But considering I am older than the average bride, I have seen the brown tux fashion before when my older cousins got married in the 70"s (don't get crazy; I was a kid).  Think about how you might feel about that choice 10 years from now.

    In 10 years I would still love my choice of brown tuxes. Plus the guys looked awesome. Since my Hubby and I both wore Ivory the brown blended well. By the way Berry welcome to the board.
