No fun for the guys. <sigh> It's a tux or nothing when it comes to formal occasions. The ladies get all the options for expression and creativity.
Our pals at Jim's Formal Wear have just released new colors for Fall Weddings and they are every bit as interesting and cool, trendy and fun as you guys deserve.
The Fall Color Options & Combos
Eggplant, Taupe and Walnut
"A deep purple hue paired with two neutrals makes this fall combo pop. Imagine rich eggplant orchids dotting every table at the reception and your groomsmen dancing the night away in taupe tuxedos layered over walnut brown vests and ties."
Tangerine, Chocolate and Hunter Green
"If you don’t want to veer too far from traditional fall wedding color schemes, this is the one to explore. Oranges, browns, and greens are typically accent colors at formal autumn events, so why not make them the stars? We love the idea of tangerine-colored signature cocktails, a chocolate-on-chocolate dessert bar, and greenery visible at every turn."
Pumpkin, Grey and Gold
"Step aside red tones – the gold family can also dazzle. We love the idea of pairing a robust pumpkin orange with a shimmery metallic gold. Reflect this color combo in the bridesmaids’ dresses and jewelry, tablecloths, and boutonnieres. Set off the bold autumn hues with soft grey-tone suits for the gents and coordinating heels for the ladies."
Gold, White and Cream
"Headed to the beach to say “I Do”? Opt for an airy, neutral autumn wedding color scheme. The simplicity of an eye-catching gold hue paired with soft whites and creams puts the focus on you, not a flashy color combination. Play up this trio with stunning gold cufflinks for the men and statement necklaces for the women."
Navy Blue, Silver and Lemon
"Deep, dark blue tones are getting all the attention this fall. Try pairing navy with a bright lemon yellow and hints of silver. We love the look of yellow rose bouquets against navy cocktail dresses for the women, and silver-dipped fall leaves worn as boutonnieres on the men’s navy suits."
Soft Yellow, Maroon and Black
"An evening wedding calls for a deep, dark red tone. Try pairing a maroon hue with a muted yellow for a beautiful contrast. We love these colors integrated with elegant black tuxes and black evening gowns for the bridesmaids. Imagine bouquets of miniature sunflowers and red fall berries at your big event!"
Boutonnieres are a part of this production and JFW offers ideas there as well!
BT has been an authorized Jim's Formal Wear retailer for many years and are excited about these options as we discuss the possibilities with the women who come to our shop. That said:
We also know that you cannot always accommodate every single idea or suggestion. Our vote is always for being authentic while not being afraid to try something new.
See you soon!
