Tie question - Page 2

Drizz, that's exactly what the tie is -- burgundy with non-busy dark blue stripes.  A bit of texture to it, and a little bit of sheen, which will stand out from the brushed finish of the suit and the fine twill of the shirt.
This sounds good to me. (I was leaning toward maroon even before you posted the description.)

tiger02, I like the champagne tie (#1)--because it doesn't stand out. This may seem like heresy on this forum, but the wedding should highlight the bride and groom. Tie #1 is classy and restrained--it shows that you know your role in the ceremony (to witness and support) and what your role isn't (to provide the color and beauty).

I like 2 - I am not a big fan of ties in browns/golds/tans

This was my original thought; I think I'm enough split on the decision that if the champagne comes available, I'm going to make FIH happy and buy both Then, if I'm in a peppy mood (rare) I can sport the bright red digs; if I'm feeling sedate it'll be the lesser wattage. Of note is that I've never met anyone at this wedding before, other than my gf and her parents. Will report back... Tom

It would take quite a tie to steal the spotlight from the bride and groom and tie number 2 isn't that tie If anything I think the bigger issue is the wearing of a black suit to a wedding. I'm a bit old school...black and white should never be worn to a wedding if you're a guest.

Gorgekko, while I agree in principle; in this case, due to various circumstances, the only suit I have available that I'm still willing to wear in public is black. That is, the only suit that I've put my hands on since learning how a suit is supposed to fit. So, black it is... I can relook the white easily though, still might pull a blue or stripe out of the closet. Tom
