That's something to consider, I just have had my eye on that rough silk for a long time. I'm not having a super formal wedding (it's hindu), but you're right, the houndstooth will look better in pictures than a bright blue rough silk.That being said, I'm getting both, because that Ocean Blue Rough Silk looks awesome and I just want it. Maybe I'll wear it to someone else's spring time wedding.
Ordering ties for my wedding finally, getting two just in case. I personally want the Thai Rough Silk in Ocean Blue, but my fiancee is iffy about how that will look during a reception, so I'm getting the new blue houndstooth as well as a buffer.
This is going with a mid grey suit and black...
I'm having a similar issue. I'll be wearing a mid grey suit for the reception and need to pick a tie for myself and my groomsmen.
I personally like bright colors and was thinking this for my groomsmen http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/tiesandpocketsquares/ties/PRDOVR~04558/04558.jsp?color_name=morning-sky
and then something like this for me http://www.samhober.com/rough-thai-silk-ties/ocean-blue-thai-rough-silk-tie-5.html
But then again, I think maybe I should be more...

If it's slightly long, it'll still look fine. It's right in the shoulders, the chest, sleeves are an easy fix.
Dude, buy the damn thing. who cares about an extra inch of length, a good tailor can fix that too.
