Sooo we’re having a nautical wedding and naturally I thought I’d put the girls in navy and have the guys in beige or silver/grey if necessary (I don’t like being too predictable so I wanted to avoid the ever popular navy & grey/silver combo). I really love this inspiration board for our wedding of Navy, Champagne/Beige & Whites/Ivories…
BUT Fiance doesn’t think the beige suits are very formal and he wants to be dressed up
SOOO My fiance is really easy going and so are his boys and so he decided he wanted to be in Navy & would know the vest combo when he saw it so we went to our local tux place and he’s chosen this combo:
Now while I think its nice and all… I’m not into having every person in the bridal party in navy soooo I thought I’d sort of reverse the theme by putting my ladies in Champagne and letting them pick nice champagne cocktail length dresses similar to these:
but the girls have different bust sizes and shapes size ranging from 4-18 so I was thinking about asking them all to just get dresses with nautural waistline seams so that I can get them all a navy ribbon sash to tie around the middle.
OR I think this $65 number from target.com could work:
But do you ladies think the Champagne gold goes with the bluey/slate grey goes well?
I’m having second thoughts.
Would silver go better?
I never really wanted silver but I don’t mind it & want the suits and dresses to look nice together… I found these ($30/ea) on eBay:
Any other suggestions for affordable dresses and/or color combos?
Your feedback would be much appreciated!

I like the champagne idea with navy ribbons.

@Pinkmoon: I think I do too but then I just saw these Ann Taylor dresses in a fun blue hue
I love this color, it comes in all the sizes I need and ends up being only $56 per dress! Hmmm do you think it goes as well?

I like the champagne idea… or a navy/white stripe could be cute for BM’s if you can find one that goes

@SoCalBelle: Yeah you know what I love the champagne idea too! I just found these at Ann Taylor and they are on a super sale so they’re actually cheaper than the Target ones~
We’re getting them!
Thanks for your votes ladies!

AHHHH! They only have 1 size 18 left so I’m not sure I can get them! One of my BMs says she wants to try to be a 14 (the next biggest size) by the time my wedding comes (less than 6 months) but I’m not sure, that’s a lot of pressure!!!
New poll… I need to organize my options.
Thanks so far ladies!
