Groomsmen attire dilemma...thoughts?

FI and I went to pick out tuxes yesterday.  We're struggling with what to have the groomsmen wear.  Originally we thought the guys would wear a chocolate brown vest/tie to coordinate with the bridesmaids and we would put the dads in classic black.  But now we're wondering if it should be the opposite...have the GM's in classic black and have the dads in the brown.  Here is a picture of the bridesmaid dress and of both tux options.  What do you guys think?  FI and I both love the look of the classic black but would it be strange to have the dads in a color that matches the BMs?  Sorry it's kind of hard to tell in the pictures...

I personally like the chocolate brown on the GM, but to be honest, do what you like.  I don't think it would be weird to have the dads match the BM.  So if that is all you are worried about, don't worry.

I love the chocolate for GM! In fact, I ordered that same vest and tie for my GM because my BM are also chocolate brown.  I am also doing black on black for my dad.  I LOVE it!!!  I'd say stick to the original plan. ;)

You know me I always LOVE black haha hense my funeral *cough* I mean wedding :)  BUT I love the idea of brown to feed of the bridesmaids and it seems to 'complete' the look, you know?


My friend did brown and black tuxes and it looked great with the girls brown dresses! Let me know if you want pics so you can see....


Did you go to our local Friars???  haha I didn't think they were very helpful trying to figure this stuff out haha I thought it would be their job :)  The tuxes were harder to figure out then my dress haha


- HMM :)
