I think that I remember that the groomsmen in your wedding wore the green and black ties. Did your husband wear one too? I am doing the striped tie thing too but couldn't decide if FI should wear the same or a solid ivory or something.

Thanks!!

    Hi!

    Yup, the two GMs wore green and black striped ties with black vests. Our dads elected to wear the same thing. We got their ties here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/rabbitstop

    MH decided that he wanted a green tie with white stripes. We bought a couple for him to pick from, and the one he decided on was a Nautica-brand tie that he found at Marshall's for maybe $15.

    Here's a close shot of MH's tie: http://mbcdd.weebly.com/uploads/3/6/6/6/3666310/677011.png?506

    Here's a close shot of my brother's/GM's tie: http://mbcdd.weebly.com/uploads/3/6/6/6/3666310/2622466.png?512

    MH decided himself that he wanted striped ties, because I didn't want to choose the guys' attire since I was already deciding on the girls and mine. My original suggestion to him was black vests with solid green ties, but he liked striped better so we went with that. He completely vetoed the ivory vest and tie, but he didn't hate the idea of a black vest with an ivory/white tie. Did your FI express any ideas or did he ask you to pick it out for him?

    Our color theme is navy blue and fuchsia. We saw an inspiration board in a magazine and loved it. Navy and fuchsia ties were a part of the inspiration. He loved that idea!  These are the ties that we are going with:

    With that, we aren't going to tuxes but navy blue or khaki suits (leaning more towards navy) Did you have the guys buy their suits?

    FI would love to wear the tie that we chose but I am not sure how that would look. I think he should have something that seperates him from the others.

    Our guys rented tuxes. After Six brand, I think, from a label I saw in my brother's jacket. MH is saying it was a no-name brand. *shrug*

    Oh, and MH had a different boutonniere (he had a white rose and the GMs had pink gerbera daisies), so that's something else that'll set him apart if he wants to wear the same tie as the groomsmen.
