I like Navy Blue but doesn't that clash with balck tuxes??

Is anyone else doing Navy Blue and green for their wedding.  I'm having a hard time picturing it with black tuxes...

    We did navy, ivory, and light pink this past weekend. It definitely worked with black tuxes.

    Thanks! It was amazing! I only have 6 sneak peek pics right now (see post above this one) and the wedding party is not in them. Private message me so I remember to send you the link when I have more photos.

    I actually just asked this same question on a differen board earlier today, haha. I think I've settled on navy blue and apple green for our colors and from what I've been told, the black tuxes will just look just fine. In fact, most people said having navy tuxes (in addition to navy bridesmaid dresses) would be too much. Now if you were doing green dresses, then I think you could get away with the navy tuxes. But either way, it shouldn't matter. I saw some pictures of navy dresses and black tuxes side by side- looked just fine.

    My BMs are wearing short navy dresses (our colors are navy, moss green, and fuchsia), and I've never even thought about it being an issue. Black tuxes are a classic- they don't need to be a color match to anything.

    I guess it depends on how traditional you are, but I'm personally not a fan of colored vests/ties/shirts. When you see black tie events on TV like the Oscars, you never see Brad Pitt wearing a yellow vest because Angelina is wearing a yellow dress.

    Nope!  My girls wore navy dresses and our tux jackets (cutaways) were black.
