Bridesman

Hi everyone!


One of my best friends of 20+ years is in my bridal party and I am not sure what to do for his attire.


I'm either leaning on a dusty blue or pink for the bridesmaid dresses. But for him, do I get the suit that matches the groomsmen and then do the bridesmaid color as the shirt or tie? What have you guys done? Would it look better with the shirt matching with a simple tie or white shirt with matching tie to dresses?


Thanks!

    I would say ask him! If you really don't care, maybe he has an idea of what he'd like to do.

    I actually really love when the bridesman has a suit that matches the dresses!

    of course, this depends on what he feels comfortable with and if he isn't down for a colourful suit then matching the groomsmen would be my secondary choice.

    My brother was a bridesman in my wedding and he wore the exact same thing as the groomsmen. We also had a groomswoman and she wore the same thing as the bridesmaids. Bridesman 5

    Right? I saw the pink one a while back and pink is my favourite so of course I fell in love. I think finding a suit that would match the dresses might be quite tricky, so I wonder if you'd be best getting the suit first and then matching the dresses after.

    I have 2 bridesmen and they’re wearing the same suit as the groomsmen but have bowties and pocket squares that matches the sequins on the bridesmaids dresses

    I agree with this! He's not a groomsman so he doesn't need to match them. Look for a suit that matches or at least complements the bridesmaids.

    I think it depends on his style. I love some of those pictures above where the suit matches the dresses! But if he's not super outgoing with fashion then I would just have him match the groomsmen! Either way it'll all look great together! there is no wrong answer here, it's whatever you and him are comfortable with

    As a woman with two brothers and no sisters, I am LOVING these pics. Makes me wish we had decided to have a bridal party. But I agree that I would ask him what he is most comfortable doing, and if he doesn't care, I love the suit matching the dresses!!

    My husband was the best man in a wedding that had a man of honor. The MOH wore the same tux as the groomsmen, but the pocket square, bowtie, and vest were different colors.

    If you can find a suit to match, it would be a great look, but if not, I would think a light gray would look good with dusty blue or pink, and then he could wear a tie and vest to match the ladies. The groomsmen could wear a darker color, like charcoal or navy.
