    Morning all,

    First post on here. I am after some advise so I don't completely mess up. Im getting married next year and the colour scheme is sky blue. I am wanting the best man, ushers etc to wear sky/light blue braces and bow tie however I am unsure what is best to wear with it. What colour trousers would match the ebst, brown or black shoes, any other accessory to go with.

    Or am I wide of the mark and need to go with something completely different that will smash the look.

    Kind Regards
    Chris

    Braces will not be seen under the jackets, so their color is irrelevant.

    The rest of the outfit would be better determined by the time and location of the wedding. Can you provide details of this?

    The wedding is on the 5th August. Location is a place called Ribby Hall which is in the NW of England. The Ushers will not be wearing jackets so they will match the bow ties

    If they're not wearing jackets, I wouldn't have them wear ties.

    A bow tie is a type of tie.

    To answer one of the questions in your original post, yes, you are wide of the mark. Dressing them in bow ties and braces but no jacket is like dressing them as children. If these are adults, I think you should dress them with more respect. I'd put them in grey suits and black shoes (as long as you are also wearing black shoes).

    Will the wedding be held during the summer months, and what time of day.. as in morning/noon/night.
    I presume long sleeve white shirts with turndown collars will be worn. Is that correct?
    I would think a fairly dark blue suit would work well with sky blue accessories..
    If you are English and wearing a blue suit, I would wear black shoes.
    Will the bows be plain or patterned, and textured or satin finish?
    What about pocket squares?

    Just curious--why does his being English weigh in as a factor? Not being persnickety; I'm just curious if the Brits don't wear black shoes with blue suits.

    Traditionally the English wear only black shoes with blue and grey suits, but it's possible the recent trend to wear tan shoes with everything has made it there too.
