Tux color for a Navy and Coral wedding

I need help deciding what color the groomsmen should wear. The bridesmaids will be wearing Navy dresses and carrying coral and ivory flowers. FH wants to wear black but will it look okay to have the groomsmen wear black next to the navy dresses? Do you think it would look okay if FH wears black and the groomsmen wear dark gray?

    I probably would shy away from having the guys wear black if the girls are in navy. I think gray sounds good, but if it were me, I'd probably stick the groom in gray, too. Maybe a lighter gray, even, since you're doing June. That's just what I'd do though. I'm sure you'll figure out what works best for you.

    Black and navy isn't very nice together. I'd go with gray or beige/tan...

    Go to this site and put your own tux together.

    A black tux with a navy vest/tie combo would be fine (I've seen it several times). You can bring in the coral on the bouts.

    I love a nice gray suit. Only reason we weren't doing them, is because black is one of my colors.

    I would do a navy suit with coral undershirts to match the girls dresses!

    Black and navy is not uncommon and is still quite classy. Pull in the coral through accents: flowers, shoes, ties, etc

    My first thought would be tan/beige as well.

    Gray or khaki

    If FH feels that strongly about the black tuxes, I'd change the color of the girls dresses.

    Can't remember who, but there was another post with the same question a month or so ago. If you Google "coral and navy wedding" and look at the images you can get a good feel for what they all look like together. There are several images of grey, navy and black mixed with coral.

    I'm doing al,ost the same and FH and e guys are going to be in a medium grey suit. Charcoal grey might be a good compromise, still very dark, but not as harsh against the navy.
