Recap on Groomsmen Attire

While the girls have the whole spectrum of colors to choose from, guys are typically limited to a few colors of formal wear – black, tan, chocolate brown, navy blue, and light and dark shades of grey. In 2010 I saw a pretty consistent run of traditional black tuxes, although a few guys mixed it up a bit by choosing a tan tux or a dark suit.

What’s more interesting to look through than the color of their tux is the color of their “accessories” – the vests, ties, and boutonnieres that each set is wearing. You can see a popular choice is for the groom to wear white or ivory under their jacket and for their groomsmen to wear black, but some couples mix it up by adding in some colored vests and some even go with a printed tie. For the flowers the guys almost always get a matching flower that is featured in the bridesmaids’ bouquets, and the groom gets one that matches a flower that the bride is carrying. If you can match the wedding photos in this post to the ones in the last post (about my 2010 bridesmaids dresses) you can see how the colors of the flowers and the rest of the guys’ attire have been selected to be perfectly color coordinated with the girls.

To give you a rundown of the groomsmen attire from my 2010 events here are a few of my favorite photos to share.
