Gemstone hues are rich, vibrant, and can add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any wedding palette. So when it comes to mixing and matching groomsmen ties with gemstone dresses, it’s all about balance and harmony. By understanding the color dynamics and following some guidelines, you can create a wedding party look that is cohesive, stylish, and unforgettable. Whether you choose to match, complement, or contrast, the end result will be a beautifully coordinated celebration of your special day.

Start with Bridesmaid Dresses

The first step is to understand the exact shade of the bridesmaid dresses. Gemstone colors can have variations, so having a fabric swatch or a detailed photo can help immensely.

Choose a Color Scheme

Decide whether you want the groomsmen accessories to match the bridesmaid dresses, complement the dresses with a harmonious color, or contrast for a bold, eye-catching effect.

Match

Choose ties and pocket squares in the same shades. This deep purple will create a striking look for perfect wedding photos. 

Complement

Find a color you love and pair it with a softer, complementary shade. For instance, sapphire dresses look great with light gray or silver ties. 

Contrast

Create a fashion-forward look with contrasting colors. Opt for dresses in bright red and ties in a deep navy. 

Patterns and Textures

While solid colors are a safe bet, don't shy away from patterns and textures. Stripes, polka dots, paisley, or floral patterns can add an extra layer of interest. Just ensure the patterns are not overwhelming and stay within the chosen color scheme.

Final Touches

Ensure the groomsmen's suits complement the overall color scheme. Neutral colors like black, gray, or navy are versatile and can tie the look together.
