Thoughts on colour of tie, pocket square & buttonhole flowers for groom & groomsmen? Which pieces do you think should match the general colour scheme of the wedding?

Tie in a black/white or black/silver classic pattern, white linen pocket square, white lapel flower (rose perhaps) with some smaller flowers matching the color theme (which is a silly thing in mine and many others opinion). Keep it simple. No foliage, and put the stem through a working lapel hole, have one made if need be. Avoid the prom corsage look.

-edit-

For my own upcoming wedding, I have no matchy elements for myself, but threw in the smaller matchy flowers for my groomsmen to appease the wife-to-be. I've managed to steer our wedding away from an overly matchymatchy costume affair to something I believe will stand the test of time photo-wise. Photos and advice from this thread has helped immensely.

Thanks. I agree regarding the matching colour theme. Ideally if I can get away with the flower matching the colour theme and nothing else I'd be happy.

I probably should have mentioned the suit will be blue - going MTM from Suit Supply as it worked for my budget & means I can get use out of it after the wedding.

Don't think a black tie would work? Thinking brown shoes but undecided yet. I'm bad at suits.

A black and white patterned tie won't look black.

 

Navy/white or navy/silver is another option of course.

 

Examples are from Kent Wang.

Thanks - They look ok, I think I want to have a bit more fun with it though. Not overly keen on the classic look.

I've always wanted to try some stuff from Post Imperial but I don't normally wear suits so i've never had the need. They have some really cool ties & pocket squares.

Also been looking through some Pitti pictures for some inspiration. Maybe going to go for some brown slip ons (probably not loafers like shown below);

Please don't wear a black tie with brown, slip-on loafers!

Post Imperial ties certainly looks to be on the fun side.
When's your wedding? Will it be daytime or evening? Outdoors? What are you expecting your guests to wear?
Nothing wrong with a bit of flair, but then the rest of the outfit should be kept conservative in my opinion. Ie no bright pink socks or such. And avoid black ties with brown shoes.
Opinions and advice aside, it's your day, and you decide what to wear (not true for all grooms). But when deciding, imagine yourself looking through your wedding album in 30 years and ask yourself what that guy feels about the outfit.

Wedding is July so summer here - Church wedding followed by a reception with a good outdoor space. Guests can wear whatever they like really.

...Maybe I'll go sockless...

I get your last point & its something to consider. I think i'd be okay with it as long as I felt comfortable in it at the time. I don't doubt i'll look back on some of the SW&D stuff i've worn and laugh.

Thanks!

edit;

I might go with something like these shoe-wise? Any recs for something similar in the price range?

Meermin makes an affordable loafer.

I'm getting married in October, and I'm trying to figure out what I want to wear. I like the idea of a stroller suit, but I don't care for the starkness of the traditional color combinations. Would something like this be advisable?



It's going to be an indoor wedding during the afternoon, and won't be very formal.

Looks nice to me!

To me the trouble if you're not wearing a stroller is you just have a jacket and pants that don't match. I'd prefer a regular suit. Maybe a dove grey linen vest would add a nice touch to a navy or charcoal suit. This way you get the suit and something unique.

I think it's a great look. The mismatched pieces feel more celebratory to me than a full-on suit. Does it look like a stroller? Not really. But it does look great and it definitely looks like you're getting married.

I've been on the fence between the idea of three separate pieces and the two-piece navy with odd vest that you describe.

Something like this (for lack of a more SF-appr. picture):



And of course, this photo from the first page of the thread is great:



I'm agonizing.
