Color-coordinating groomsmen to bridesmaids can be a challenge. With so many different color options, methods, and elements, it can be hard not to get overwhelmed. When striving to create a unified look, you have to keep so many different components in mind. This guide on how to coordinate your groomsmen to your bridesmaids will give you all the options in one spot, so you prevent wasting time researching. From color wheels to matching floral arrangements, this is your complete guide to color-coordinating.

Pick a color theme

The very first step of matching your bridesmaids and groomsmen is determining what your color theme is. Depending on the color scheme of your wedding, you may take inspiration for the suits or the dresses of the wedding party. After figuring out a color scheme, choose three to four colors that the aesthetic of the bridal and groom's party will revolve around.

Take a look at the color wheel

Another option is to take a look at the color wheel. The color wheel determines what color combinations look the best together and what won't. If you want a more mismatched look, try complementary colors like burnt orange and dusty blue. However, if a uniform look is a goal, try out analogous color schemes like blue and violet.

Matching accessories and dresses

If you prefer a more subtle look, simply matching accessories like ties to the color of the bridesmaids' dresses will create a unified and put-together look. For example, if you have blush dresses, try blush ties for the suits and see how that appears.

Similar lapels and bouquets

Another similar alternative is matching the bridesmaids' bouquets to flower lapels of the groomsmen’s suits. The floral arrangements will tie the entire aesthetic of the wedding party together and give a natural rustic hint.

Monochromatic looks

The simplest method of color coordination is choosing monochromatic looks. That way, the bridesmaids and groomsmen are wearing the same color in different hues and shades. This technique is very aesthetically pleasing, easy, and effective.

When in doubt, try neutrals

If you are too scared to try multiple bold colors, having either the groomsmen wear a neutral color while the bridesmaids sport a more colorful look (or vice versa) will ensure the colors don’t clash and look nice and balanced.
