This.

It's their wedding. They put black tie on the invite. Other guests will be in black tie..

To be more accurate, they said black tie optional. And at 11:30 am, there's no way I'd be in a tux. I'd bring it with me to change into if the party goes late enough. And let's hope the party does go late enough. biggrin.gif

Related question: Both of my groomsmen will be in dark (but non-matching) suits. I was planning on giving them a white pocket square and a tie to wear. Since their suits (and my stroller) won't be matching to begin with, I was thinking that having matching wedding ties may work better than everyone with a different tie. What do you think?

Still different ties. The idea is not to look like everyone planned their outfits together. Matching ties implies such a conspiracy.

Agreed. Get a couple of different wedding ties.

Are the bridesmaids going to match? If so, then the groomsmen should match.

I am going to my brother in law's sisters wedding this weekend and I was planning on wearing this combo, I am curious to what people think.
I am wearing a light gray suit with either brown or black shoes. I haven't decided yet.

Definitely brown.

Hi guys, sorry, I put this in the wrong place before.

I'm after some opinions selecting ties for the groom and 2 groomsmen. They will be in morning dress with white shirt and dove grey vest. Bout is a white rosebud. I'm thinking a glen plaid for the groom, or maybe number 8? I'm after 3 ties that work well together without looking like a uniform. The picture shows the 11 possibilities I have found so far.

Also, if we went with a buff waistcoat instead, should we go for navy/white instead of black/white designs?

I like numbers 1 and 2. I don't care much for number 5 at all. Just my own preference fwiw.

I like 1,2, 4 and 9. I think 7 and 8 are too light.

I'd take GP for the groom, then 1 and 4 for the groomsmen.

Number four is very nice. Glen plaid is also a great choice.
