Creative Ways To Coordinate Groomsmen and Bridesmaids

Every couple wants their bridesmaids and groomsmen to look harmonious as they stand together at the altar. Achieving this cohesive look means selecting the right hues for all members of the wedding party to wear. The question is, how do you pick these colors? Below, we provide creative ideas to actively coordinate groomsmen and bridesmaids’ outfits for your wedding day. 

Evaluate Various Color Combinations

Choosing the right color pallet for your wedding ensures everything looks coordinated. You can get inspiration by using sites like Pinterest to view a range of color combinations. 

Sticking to specific groupings, such as earth tones, monochromatic colors, and pastels, or single shades, such as blue, pink, or purple, is best. Once you select a group of colors, compare how specific shades look together to create a color palette for the wedding— you’ll choose apparel for the wedding party based on these hues.

Carefully Consider the Suit Color

The groomsmen’s suit colors should always accent the bridesmaid dresses. So, their tuxes should be light gray or black if the bridesmaids are wearing blush gowns. But consider a navy or charcoal suit if the dresses are wisteria. The idea is to ensure that the tux complements the color of the bridesmaid dress and creates a cohesive look.

Try using a color wheel to find complementary colors if you’re unsure of which colors look best together. For example, consider having the groomsmen wear blue or green ties if the bridesmaid dresses are warm shades of orange.

Buy a Quality Suit

Grooms Club allows you to use an online tuxedo customizer to create a unique look for the men in your wedding. We have numerous color options for neckties, bowties, and pocket squares. Select hues that are the same color as the bridesmaid dresses so you pick the perfect tux color.

Select Colored Garments

The final way to coordinate the groomsmen and bridesmaids is to dress everyone in similar shades. Most couples do this by selecting a piece of the groomsmen’s apparel to be the same color as the bridesmaid gowns. Key pieces of clothing to evaluate include:

  • Button-up shirts
  • Vests
  • Ties
  • Pocket squares

Having one of these items be the same colors as the bridesmaid dresses creates a cohesive look.

Begin planning which members of your wedding party will wear what early on to ensure you decide on the best colors. With careful planning, everyone will look perfect on your big day!
