    Hi everyone,

    The dress I'm wearing is a champagne color and my FI and I are having a hard time figuring out which color suit to get him. He originally wanted a khaki suit but now we're thinking that it might be too similar to the dress color and won't look right. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions? We're really stuck.

    Thanks in advance!

      Seersucker suits are nice for beach weddings. JCrew weddings on their website has several and I think Macy's usually carries them in the spring/summer. Good luck and happy shopping!

          about 4 and 1/2 minutes into the video is the best pic of them and the colors, just gorgeous!

            I agree that a dark Khaki or even brown would look good. Depends on your wedding colors too I'd think.

              Thanks Karen! Seersucker suits could work. Our challenge is which color suit would look good with my champagne dress.

              Anybody with a champagne color dress willing to share what color suit their FI will be wearing? Help please :)

                Thanks for sharing this video Lynnie. I really like that combination! It also really helps to have a visual. Shared it with the FI. Will see what he says! Thanks again!

                  I think those could would work too. Officially the wedding colors are ivory and gold but the bridesmaids have different color dresses (turquoise, green, yellow, fuschia) which kind of complicates things. The groomsmen need to match the groom so the suit's color also needs to be neutral enough to match the different colored BM dresses. Sigh. What have I gotten myself into! LOL.

                  FI likes this charcoal color with champagne tie.

                  I think it could work. I also really like the dark khaki suit in the video LynnieS posted. Decisions, decisions. Thanks for your input though. It's greatly appreciated! :)

                    I think the gray suit would look good if all your BM's have bright dresses, good choice!

                      I think something brown would go nicely.
