    Hey guys I'm a long time reader and and first time poster.

Both of which I hate you know happy wife happy life right LOL! Here are pictures of the tux along with the tie/bow tie options I chose which once would you guys suggest? and None is not an option lol! But seriously any help or advise would be great.

      What time of day is the wedding? Black bow ties/cummerbunds and rose boutonnieres is what I'd suggest. Re-host the pics somewhere like imgur so we can take a look.

        Agree with this. I'd suggest getting rose boutonnieres instead and see if she's on board with that.

        IMO if you are wearing a tux you should have either a black or white bow tie especially if it's a navy tux since that is already a little non-traditional. Any other color bow tie might make it look like you all are getting ready to go to the prom.

          Here is some marriage advice. If you really hate the options tell her so. "Happy wife, Happy life" doesn't mean being passive. Your wife will be happy if you share your opinion with her.

          That being said, your fiancee is more important than the opinion of people on the internet. Decide how important this is to you. You will be looking at those pictures for a long time, and why shouldn't the groom have a say on what his friends wear. It is your wedding too.

          Also I can't see the pictures.

            Two perspectives...

            From the serious color coordination perspective: dusty rose (I hope this is dusty rose and not hot pink, prom-dress rose) and navy look sharp. It's a great color combo up there with saturated green and pink as far as dramatic effect. Have the groomsmen wear what the bridesmaids are not; all navy if the bridesmaids are wearing the rose.

            From the not-so-serious perspective: weddings are typically examples of tacky, costumey fashion choices. Don't worry about it. Enjoy the event.

              If it's something like this, I think that would be quite appropriate

              WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?

                I think with the time crunch our man may be forced into that corner. But I'm staunchly in camp "no matchy matchy" and going to leave some articles here.

                An excerpt from PTO:
                The level of formality of clothes in the wedding party should match, but the clothes themselves need not do so. If your wife-to-be is wearing a party dress from BCBG, you shouldn’t be wearing white tie. If you’re wearing white tie, your wedding party shouldn’t be wearing loafers.

                There is no need for men’s clothes to match exactly. Outside of the military, it looks tacky. Even when wearing black tie, a group of men’s tuxedos should not match exactly – they’ll look like backup dancers in a 1930s musical. This is difficult for some women to comprehend. Hold fast.

                If your wife-to-be believes that everything in the wedding should match in color in some way, there are some very reasonable ways to accommodate this desire without turning you and your groomsmen into a doll lineup. The easiest and most appropriate is matching boutonnieres in the color of her choice. You should tend toward boutonnieres that are not so big as to need pinning on the lapel. They should go through the lapel buttonhole and through a loop behind the lapel (if there’s no loop, or your lapel buttonhole is not a real hole, this is an easy and inexpensive alteration for a tailor).

                If your groomsmen adhere to the standards I’ve written about above, they will look cohesive on the stage or altar. My own groomsmen wore their own suits, in solid gray or blue, with white shirts, black shoes, and wedding ties, and everyone looked lovely. They will also look like real people who have chosen to be there.
                A second article




                The question for the OP is what does he envision his groomsmen wearing on this big day? OP if you have no opinion and will just roll with what your wife-to-be wants to see then that's that. But you've come here asking for advice so what's your vision?

                  I agree with not forcing matching everything and did that at my own wedding. I told the groomsmen to wear some sort of suit. This relieved me of any guilt that people were spending money they didn't have and/or buying something they'd never wear again.

                  Of course, my wife was fine with this, so there was no pre-wedding argument about my terrible idea that was going to ruin everything.

                          Of those pics I like the simple black tie the most. To me those ties don’t really give off the go with Tux vibe.

                            I agree with hockeysc23. Those ties/bowties aren't really meant to be worn with a tux. I think the black bowtie works best with a shawl collar tux but if I had to choose one I guess it would be the navy bowtie with pink stripes. I also like the idea of black bowtie with a rose boutonnieres. Its your wedding too so why not suggest a compromise?

                              I would go with the navy/rose striped bow tie among the options given. I think it could work in a “southern preppy” kind of way
