How to Coordinate Your Groomsmen in Cornflower Blue
Do you want your groomsmen to match your bridesmaids? To make things simple, you can purchase coordinating groomsmen ties and accessories in the same exact color as your bridesmaid dresses. Decide whether you prefer standard cornflower blue groomsmen ties or bow ties. Then choose from boutonnieres in your chosen wedding florals or cornflower blue pocket squares.
Alternatively, couples who are going with a contrasting color palette can dress their groomsmen in a color that matches their florals instead of the bridesmaid dresses. Patterned ties are fun for more casual weddings like a spring garden wedding with floral bow ties, cornflower blue bridesmaid dresses, and pastel colored bouquets.
