So I have to admit... I'm not a tux gal... there's something about the impersonalness of a not-so-greatly fitting rental tux. They never fit quite right and I end up imagining some poor dude at prom.
I just love the look of a well tailored suit. And since my fiance and his 2 groomsmen all have black suits... well that's the way we're going!
But in order to make them look like they match, since they'll be wearing different but similar black suits we did want to buy them ties to match the bridesmaids.... remember them...
And we also wanted to match the color palette...
Pretty tall order wouldn't you say? So we trucked it up to Scottsdale and hit up the DESIGNER Nordstrom's Rack (seriously they have these- and they are awesome) we found some amazing BCBG silk ties normally priced at $50 for $15!!! And they were our color palette in TIE FORM.... no seriously...
And here's a pic with the swatches for the bridesmaid dresses:
But don't worry readers... we're going to make it slightly less girly (I mean we are making them wear red and pink ties) with our groomsmen's gifts...why yes I love a Guinness- how did you know?!
So how are you doing the color coordination? Did you bring swatches with you everywhere you went like a madwoman [read: me]? Are you going our subtle just ties approach or are you going for the matching cummerbund or vest?
