I'm getting married in a grey suit (medium grey with hints of brown). The shirt is light yellow. Thoughts on this combo, and potential ties? Its a backyard wedding, bride-to-be will be in a yellow/off white dress. Thanks!
Poor advice so far. If you are fair-skinned be extremely careful which yellow you choose for a shirt. Most yellows will wash you out and you'll look like the dead. Very few shades will work well and that shirt you posted doesn't look like one of them. Wear the clothes when you read this, and have someone take some test photos of you, indoors & outdoors, in sun, then shade; try with flash and without. Avoid direct flash on the camera or apply 3 layers of translucent tape over the flash to soften, or tape a piece of white paper over the flash for the test. If you appear washed out with the yellow shirt, don't wear it on wedding day. Wear a pastel pink or lavender shirt. Wear something that compliments and not competes with your bride's gown. edit- It would have been more helpful if you has posted a photo of yourself so we could study your skin tones. If you can, do. Just mask off the eyes. This is going to yield you the best advice.
Poor advice so far.
Here's a photo of me in the suit with a placeholder tie. My skin is on the tan side. Thanks again for the guidance.
Thank you for posting the photo.
Glad you didn't ask him to get the orange tan
Manoflint ......Asking someone to take didn't camera flashes and put translucent tape etc etc. Wow um NO. And I am pretty sure you don't have to tell him to wear something that doesn't compete with his bride. How kind to state the obvious.... *rolls eyes*
You would be suprised what many men will wear that they think looks good on them and doesn't.
