- Wedding: July 2011
without trying to vent cuz this has just been a nightmare trying to find something…..here’s what we have so far….
2 bms are in this dress…..with a semi messy/still-classic looking updo with a crochet flower hair piece and holding a single flower or possibly a parasol, i’m still up in the air about the details, and chocolate brown summer shoes…
my MOH is wearing a very similar dress but in solid chocolate brown…same details as the BMs…
here’s my dress…
FI has 1 best man, and 2 GMs…..FI is a size 30/30 while one of his GMs is very tall so his size is hard to find….
we have tossed around ideas
from all the men in khaki color which got scratched because FI doesnt want to wear a light color….he’d rather be in a dark color…..
to FI in brown suit with white shirt and colored tie with GMs in khaki suits and brown tie…..
to FI in brown pants and brown vest and colored tie with GMs in khaki pants and ivory shirt and no tie..
to FI and GMs in brown pants with GMs in ivory shirt and FI in white shirt and colored tie….
the other dilema is buying vs renting…..FI went with the tall GM to a local tux rental place and the only brown suits they had ended up being $120 and i guess they got persuaded into getting the whole nine yards…..pants, jacket, vest, and tie….which i feel would be too formal….and about the price, honestly, they both wear suits for their jobs so i’d rather them buy suits for that price…..yet, the other two men dont wear suits often enough to buy a suit and they would rather rent….ugh
my concern is that i want us to look decent all together….i’m not looking for it to be matchy matchy…..but i also dont want the men to look tooooo formal next to my girls…..i feel like even though my dress looks fancy, the overall “feel” is leaning towards outdoor garden/vintage feel…..its semi casual / semi-formal……
what should they wear to complete that feel and not be out of place?? if black pants are easier and cheaper would that color clash with what the girls are wearing??? should they do khaki instead with FI buying a brown suit??
i’m starting to feel like a bridezilla telling them what i want them to wear only because i feed them ideas and tell them to get what they want within those ideas and they come back with something that isn’t gonna look right…….or maybe it will??
i dont know….what do yous think?
i think i’m gonna burst into a grey head of hair before this wedding rolls around….
