Groomsmen attire to go with bridesmaids in yellow sundresses

My fiance and I are getting married in a couple months. Our colors are white and yellow, and her bridesmaids are in yellow sun dresses. Its my job to figure out how to dress the groomsmen and myself, but I’m having a tough time… Since the bridesmaids are in sun dresses I don’t think it would look good for everyone to wear suits. I was going to wear a light tan suit with a yellow tie, then possibly have the groomsmen in matching slacks and white or off-white shirts and yellow ties, but I don’t know if that would work or not. I’ve been getting lots of different advice from lots of well meaning people, but I’m really starting to get stressed! Anyone have any suggestions??

I think you are definitely on the right track! Is the ceremony outdoors?
Check out the photo attached. They are wearing light blue shirts, but I think you get the idea. Even with an off-white or white shirt, I think the color combo will work nicely together for a summer theme.tan suit.jpg

Brandon, it will work perfectly! Excellent, well-thought color scheme! Enjoy the wedding!

I agree. This would work well, formality wise. Great advice.
