GM Shirt colour for Purple BM dresses?

Recommended Posts

I am having a lot of difficulty trying to come up with what the groom and groomsmen will be wearing. My BM dresses are purple (bright deep purple) and originally I thought I would have the groom wear a white button shirt with khaki pants, and the GM wear purple shirts (matching the type of G shirt with the same purple colour as the BM) and khaki pants. No ties as we wanted fairly casual. 

 

Then I saw some pics (and also some protests from the groomsmen about wearing a purple shirt) and I didn't likethe look. I thought maybe a lighter purple. Then I thought a lighter purple with a deep purple tie, even though I originally didn't want ties. Then I thought the groom could wear the purple and the GM wear white!

 

I just want something to go together with everything. I thought maybe the groom and groomsmen (2) could wear the same thing, but I really wanted the groom to stand out and be a little different. 

 

I don't know!! I'm feeling stressed and not sure what way to go!! What can I do? My sister suggested black shirts for the GM, but I think that would be too dark. What about they all wear khaki pants and white shirt for groom and grey shirts for the GM (or is that too drab)?

 

For thinking having a beach wedding was the simple way to go, I was wrong! Please help with my lack of colour talent!

Hey Sarah,

 

We also have been going around and around about this same issue.  Our BM's are wearing bright deep purple dresses (Alfred Angelo 7122 you can google it and see the purple color and the sash will be ivory).  My dress is also ivory. Since the BM's dresses have ivory sash on them our GM will be wearing ivory shirts with khaki colored pants as well as the groom.  To stand out the groom will wear a suite jacket (Khaki color) for pictures and wedding ceremony.  I hope this helps.

Thanks. I am still having difficulty! I think since we don't want to do suits or ties, we will have groom and our two boys (ages 4 and 10 months) wear white button shirts and khaki pants and the 2 groomsmen will wear dark grey (almost metallic) shirts? What do you think? Or is that too dark for a beach?

Im so stumped, I'm considering changing my bridesmaid colour. Well, not quite!

OMG - ditto here on the stress and color problems.  Deep purple BM dress and I wanted the GM to wear a deep purple button-down; which let me tell you has been hell to find so far!  I am thinking groom - white shirt and BM lilac as I have actually been able to find this color but I think it will look off balance.

Sarah0322 - you said you saw pics of BM in purple and didnt like it - could you refer me to those pics as I am interested to see some.  Gap online had a purple button down but I prefer the linen type look.  I also found some on Zappos but none have been "the one".

AAAAGGGHHHH!

Hi,

My bridesmaid dresses have a black sash, so I am thinking black shirts for the groomsmen now. Or, maybe the groom can wear a linen jacket with a white shirt and the grooms men can wear white shirts as well. Shirts tucked in or out? If groom is wearing a jacket, then obviously tucked in. My two sons are in it as well, and I have short sleeved white shirts for them (ages 4 and 10 months), so I thought to match their dad, he would wear a short sleeve shirt as well, but he doesn't want to. So do you think it would still look okay if the kids wore short sleeve and the adult men wore long sleeve?

 

Yes, I'm so indecisive!

My bridesmaid dresses are plum & the groomsmen will be wearing a white button down long sleeved shirt, untucked, with the sleeves rolled up.  I want to try to find a shirt that is straight across the bottom for them.  My fiance will wear a light colored suit with a white shirt underneath with no tie.  I think it will look fine if the kids wear a short sleeved shirt!

If your willing to get a little spunky, orange and purple look AWESOME together!

 

I definately agree that the boys have been the hardest to dress! My girls are in orange...but it's an off orange and there is no way I'll be able to find a shirt in the same color. Originally I figured I'd put the groom in Khaki pants/shorts and a white shirt with rolled up sleeves and a boutonier (spelling? lol) and the groomsmen with the same thing minus the bout so they were slightly different. To my suprise, the groom HATES the look. I was so disapointed to say the least, especially after I got the " I don't care what I wear, I'll wear whatever you put me in"...and now I'm getting lip from all of them haha - no pants, they don't like the khaki blah blah blah...but they'll wear white suits which wont work because my dress is ivory, they will all stick out like sore thumbs.  At this point we're somewhat agreeing on black shorts (im insisting on pinstrip to soften the look a bit), and a white shirt with rolled up sleeves and for the GM blue shirts and black shorts. Just struggling to decide whether the black is going to look okay...it's not exactly in our color theme lol.

    • I bought wedding invitation templates from   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/blue so I can type whatever I want on them but they're cheap and a lovely simple style. Maybe try searching wedding invitation templates. I know it's not something I thought of initially
    • I agree. Ive been with my now husband of 17yrs since his kids were 7,8, and 9yrs old. They are now 30,31, and 32. They have always been treated as if they were one of my own so to call him ask him to give you away tell him your going to call me with details. Those details were me and our children who are her siblings arent invited is beyond rude. When he says hes not coming cause im not invited and you send a text saying hey il guess ill have to let you come and expect that to happen is even worse. Im good just after he does make whatever choice he makes to go and he better make the right one that respects his marriage so problems dont arise. Please miss step daughter dont ever come to my home again dont call either one of us either. Your married and as far as im concerned dead. Stay away from me and my family that you have no respect for. I wish you the best in life as i always have. Im done PERIOD!!! 
    • Out of curiosity, how have the bags held up?  Did the transfer peel?
    • All those dresses are looking really great actually! I still remember back when my little brother got married. Oh, I was sooo proud, I cried out of happiness almost the entire wedding! I wore a dress similar to the second one you posted.
    • Thanks for the reply! I will keep you as much updated as possible! Only realised that I made a lot of typos because it was late at night and a lot to write!  Moving forward, I have asked one of the 2 to be my best man to which he gladly accepted so no issues there! I asked someone else to be part of the groomsmen too and he accepted right away! I have told everyone in the groomsmen (Barring W) about the situation and they are all disappointed in A and W. Right now I am having problems with W being the groomsmen after his comments so I want to remove him from it. Some days I feel like talking to him about the situation but at the same time I feel like a dick and remove him without telling him 🤣  It still has been really quiet from this lot which made me started with the new plan. I have given everyone a plus 1 from the other side of the world. Then I have the remaining spaces left out to who all said yes straight away! Should have done that in the first place haha! Like I said I feel like planning on the new plan without telling the original people about this. It feels to me they do not want to come but scared to say anything. Then again if I carry on with this new plan the majority of the UK side wouldn't even notice.
