    Hello all!

     

    I need major help making a decision for groomsmen attire.

     

    My bridesmaid dresses are alternating tangerine and watermelon color (from david's bridal).  I am thinking about adding a white sash to their dresses to tie them together somewhat and to tie them in with the groomsmen.

     

    The groomsmen on the other hand have white button up shirts with tan pants.  I figure they could roll up the sleeves to make it look more casual and less awkward I guess since they won't have a jacket on.

     

    I have purchased alternating ties (orange and pink like the dresses) so that they could match their bridesmaid.

     

    My question is this:

     

    1.  should i go with a different color with the sash? I have already purchased white sandals for the girls to wear

     

    2.  should I go with different tie colors?

     

    3.  should I not have the guys wear a tie at all?

     

    please help!

     

    Thank you,

    Melinda

      In my opinion I would do no sash.  I am not a fan of sashes so maybe I am just being biased but also I think you should embrace your original vision of the alternating dresses.  The two colours compliment one another and dont need anything extra to tie them together.

       

      As for the ties, I would alternate them to match the bridesmaid they are 1) walking with or 2) lined up with when standing. To be honest though, if you are looking for a casual vibe and having them roll up their sleeves I would forego the ties all together.  A nice option would be to do bouts in the 2 colours of the girls dresses and alternate them as you would have the ties?! That way the guys are rocking a little bit of the colours as well

        I love your idea!! I didn't think about no sashes at all! geez. I guess I just thought that the dress needed something around the waist. But I think it will look much nicer and more put together without the sash at all. I'm going in to David's Bridal today with one of my bridesmaids to see how everything looks together (I'm dressing up as a groomsmen for my little "dress rehearsal")

         

        I kind of thought the same thing about the bouts as well.  I will let you know how it goes and I will take some pics as well!

         

        Thanks again for your opinion!

            So I changed things a bit. When I got there the different color dresses seemed too busy for me.  So I changed it up. All the girls are in the watermelon (pink) dresses with a tangerine (orange) sash.  I loved the way this looked and it still incorporated both colors.

             

            For the groomsmen, I chose a tangerine tie that they are all wearing. 

             

            So my dream of alternating colors was put to an end, but I am very happy with my final choice!

             

            Now I have to find silver flip flops/sandals for the girls and necklaces!

             

            Thanks for your help!

              I saw on oldnavy.com silver flip flops that looked cute for only 3.50!  I was thinking of getting them for my girls as well but have not seen them in person yet.
