Bridal Party Match Up

I am trying to decide what to have my bridesmaids and groomsmen wear. We were thinking chocolate brown for the ladies but don't know if that would go with black tuxes! My fiance is not really a fan of the brown tux and we are trying to decide what to do. Thoughts on how they would look or how they could tie together??

  • I used to think the same thing. But...after googling/blog stalking, etc I found pictures of the color combo and it looked good. I especially like when its a little lighter than chocolate brown and has some shine, and the guys wear matching vests.

  • while it doesn't seem as though it would go, it actually doesn't look bad at all. i was in a wedding where the girls wore brown and the guys wore black and i don't think anyone thought anything of it! i certainly didn't

  • I saw a chocolate tux with a gold(ish) pinstripe that actually looked really nice together. I've also seen the black tux with matching chocolate vest and it goes well also. We haven't decided what we're doing. I have a feeling it will come down to budget since we're paying for all of it and the black tuxes are cheaper.

  • Black tuxes will work fine. Maybe have the guys in matching brown vests to coordinate with the girls if you're doing vests.
  • Our dresses are truffle from David's Bridal.  We went with black tuxes and the matching truffle vests.  Didn't think I would like it, but it looks really sharp!

  • We're doing brown dresses and khaki tuxes...I love the combination together.  FI and RB will wear ivory vests and the GM and FOB will wear brown vests.

  • After a lot of thought- and I mean a lot haha, we decided to do dark brown dresses with black tuxes. I was really weird about the color combo but I really do think it will look good. The men are going to wear the black tuxes but with gold vests so I think it will look pretty with the gold.  The girls are going to wear gold shoes and their flowers will be wrapped in gold riboon- and the sash on the dress for the flowergirl will be gold so hopefully it will tall tie together.

  • Don't worry. Black tuxs with a brown tie and vest look very nice togther. I ran into the same problem that you did. When my fiance and I went to look at tuxs we hated the brown one. The lady told us that a lot of people get a black tux with a brown vest.
