I have blush bridesmaids dresses and don't know what suits would go best with this colour?Kevi S
Friends of mine have said a navy however my fiance wasn't the biggest fan when he tried on a navy suit.

Blush is one of the most amazing colours to have as a bridesmaid dress. As it is a light colour, usually we would pair it with a navy, just to give it that striking contrast. If your fiance wasn't keen on navy you could also consider a bright navy/cobalt colour. It still has that blue undertone but is not as dark as a traditional navy.
You could also pair blush with a light grey, not so much a charcoal as it may seem too dull next to it. But a light grey will also work with it.
There is also an option to do a chocolate brown, which gives it an 'earthy' feel. Brown and pink (dusty pinks and the like) complement each other very well too.
Another factor to consider is what colour flowers your bridesmaids wil be carrying, you could incorporate the blush and light colours into the bouquet to both compliment and contrast with the men's suits, which will look perfect in photos. In one wedding I attended a number of years ago, the groomsmen wore a dark navy suit with white shirt and silver ties, while the bridesmaids wore a cobalt blue dress with silver jewels around the neck. They carried bouquets of white roses with blue orchids, with tied in with the blue theme and contrasted with the navy.
I hope this has helped you. Good luck with everything.

There are many different types of suits on the market at the moment. It just depends on the feel of the occasion that you are going for - you could have a very formal look, with satin collars, buttons and jacket trimmings, you could even include a vest to make it that extra formal, or you could go for a tailor made option (which we offer at Jon Kell Menswear), customised and tailored to your preferences.
There are also the off-the-shelf options. These are suits that can be worn again and are a bit more versatile in that context. They are not limited to just the look you wore on your wedding day. The great thing about a suit like that is you can change the shirt, tie, shoes and belt to create a whole new look.
In short, there are many different options for wedding suits, it all comes down to the look and feel of your special day.
