How to co-ordinate your bridesmaids and groomsmen wedding day looks

By on August 13, 2015

Your bridesmaids and groomsmen will share the frame in many of your wedding pictures. So, it is necessary that their looks are well-planned and go together. Coordinating your bridesmaids dresses and groomsmen attires will help you do this. If you are not sure of how to go about it, here is some help. We bring you three great ideas to get this done at your wedding. So, read on.

Matching Bows and ties for mismatched bridesmaids dresses

The current trend is to go with mismatched bridesmaids dresses, so each girl looks unique. Despite this, there is usually, a cohesive element that brings their looks together. Use this element to plan the groomsmen outfits. If the color palette is the same, get the guys bows or ties in the same shades as the corresponding bridesmaid dress. If it is the fabric that is the same, choose ties that have a similar texture and they will go together. For bridesmaids dresses from the Alfred Angelo collection, you can also find coordinated bows and ties for most of the dresses at Bows n Ties.

Match your bridesmaids dress color to the vest or pocket square

Matching the tie is the easy option. But, if you don’t mind going the extra mile to co-ordinate both the men and women in another style, choose the same color for the vest and dress, or have the pocket in the same color. The only thing you need to remember when doing this is that you should choose bridesmaids dresses in colors that can possibly be incorporated into the groomsmen outfits. Colors like gray, chocolate, beige, navy, yellow or black should be possible options.

Match the colors to the boutonniere

If you do not want the same color pattern for the bridesmaids dresses and groomsmen ties or vests, consider matching the color of the dress to the boutonniere. This is especially good in cases where your bridesmaids dress colors are unusual or awkward with dark tuxes. For orange bridesmaids dresses with a ruffled texture, have the boutonniere with orange roses or chrysanthemums, and you will not only replicate the colors, but also the texture. Keep the palette consistent, but vary the hues and you will have a stylish and chic mix.

Play with patterns

Now what do you do if your bridesmaids are to wear dresses that are entirely different in fabric, cut and print? It is simple! Just do the same with your groomsmen. Assuming that you will have one shade that will tie all the dresses together, make sure that the men too have this color incorporated into their attires, and all will be good. Why should women have all the fun? If your girls are going for patterned dresses, go wild with the prints on the ties too. Just make sure that they don’t look completely disjoint and confused when both groups come together.

To find bridesmaids dresses for all these groups, visit our collection at Best for Bride and you will find something for everyone. Head over to Bows and Ties for matching pieces for the guys, and you will have everything sorted out in no time.

    Usually you see all of the same, solid colors, right? I like the idea of playing around with patterns, that is for sure. Just a little something different.

    This is something that I know I will need help with. So I hired someone to help and because we saved money on the venue, this was a great help and didn’t cost that much more.
