    I think a lot of brides don’t really take into consideration how their dress fits in with the rest of their theme.  I think they see one they love and go with it.

    My husband wore a suit with no tie and I wore a formal lace gown.  We had a very laid-back wedding (in July in NC. . . . so it was very hot!) and my thought was that if I got to wear what I wanted to wear on my wedding day then he should get to wear whatever made him happy on his wedding day as well.  For him, that meant not having to wear a tie in 90 degree heat.  Now I look back at the pictures of us together and he looks so handsome and stylish that I think all men should go without ties!

    Personally – I think it looks silly.  Now I’m not saying the groom has to be in a tux or anything but for a wedding a certain level of formality should be expected, especially when the bride is in a very formal gown.  It’s sad and slightly embarressing when your guests out-dress you, IMO.

    Eh, I don’t care. I think that everyone should be able to wear whatever they want to their wedding.
