Groom wants to wear maroon

My fiance wants to wear maroon - a deep burgundy - or something similar/along those lines. A lot of my friends have said it's weird BUT it's special day (just as much as it's mine) and honestly with it being a fall wedding, I don't mind at all. That said - I have no idea what to have my BM's wear. I really don't like the idea of pink but am feeling like it's my only option. The groomsmen will not be matching my fiance - their colors are basically last on my list haha maybe a shade of blue or gray depending on my bridesmaids. Any ideas for my bridesmaids will be a huge help! We are wanting to keep everything "fall themed" and are obviously not afraid of color haha (besides pink Smiley laugh ).

    You could do a champagne colored dress! I wish I had chosen maroon for my FH. It's very trendy right now and I think it looks really good!

    Champagne, beige, navy. Anything neutral would look wonderful!

    Hi Caitlin! I completely second the idea of doing champagne or beige colored dresses to match the burgundy! It's a great neutral color that matches almost everything! Also, you could have your bridesmaids wear navy to match the groomsmen, and they can wear a burgundy sash/belt with their dresses? Here are some photos to help you visualize!

    Bordeaux/burgandy/marroon is bang on and in fashion. He'll look great, especially for an Autumn wedding. Your bridesmaids would look great in light gold, blush or navy.... and you with a lovely Berry lipstick to match

    This is EXACTLY what I am saying! It's good to hear everyone say that it will look nice on him! And yes, I am definitely wearing a dark lipstick! Thank you for your advice!

    I love these pictures, thank you! We are definitely leaning towards a color like that for the groomsmen.. maybe something neutral for the bridesmaids would be best - maybe lighten it up? Thank you!

    If I was having a fall wedding, my colors would be navy, gold, and burgundy/wine. You can put the GM in navy and the BMs in champagne/gold with burgundy floral.

    I love the idea of a maroon suit! Full disclosure, I did go to Texas A&M and maroon and white are our colors, but I digress. If you don't want to go the pink route for your bridemaids, though blush would look nice, I agree with navy or like a dusty blue color

    No problem at all! I wouldn't put them together, but I have a wrap sweater with maroon, dusty blue, blush, and white and I love the combination!
