Tie it up

I thought that picking out ties for the guys would be easier than the dresses for the bridesmaids, but that wasn't the case.

When I first started thinking of ties I was in love with the striped blue and green look seen here.

But then I looked at the colors of BM dresses and thought maybe the navy would be too much. The dresses are more of a royal color.

Well, Mr. E and I headed to Kohl's one weekend and knocked out all of the ties (groomsmen, dads and ushers) in one sale run! 

The Dads will be wearing the blue ties on the left.  I don't know if you can see, but the dots are alternating lighter blue and light green.

The Ushers will be in the light green with blue dot ties in the middle.

And last but certainly not least we have the groomsmen in the blue sort of pin-tuck ties on the right.  Do you notice a difference?  Yeah the one on the left is a darker shade of blue then the other three.  Well as fate would have it, we could only find 3 in the slate color we wanted and with 4 groomsmen that wouldn't quite cut it.  We found the Navy blue and decided to just go with it and give it to Mr. E's brother, the best man to stand out.  We'll just say that was the plan all along ;)

What are your guys wearing for the wedding?  Did you have more trouble picking out what they will wear then you originally thought?

Wow I like the tie selection but did you find a tie for the groom yet?

We haven't, but we're looking. We're tossed between a blue tie or a white tie to have him stand out.
