- Wedding: April 2011
I’ve had a particular wedding vision in my mind for what seems like ages now (okay, about a year), with a subdued/neutral-nude-grey-jadeite-blush-sorta color palette. We’re having a late afternoon/early evening garden wedding at an old Victorian home; antique linen and lace tablecloths, china borrowed from friends and family, flowers in our grandmothers’ old silver, twinkle lights strung up across the garden – well, that’s the wedding that lives in my head, at least. It’s just the whole head –> reality thing that trips me up.
Fiance is Glaswegian and planning to wear his father’s kilt for the wedding. I’m super insanely excited about this, mostly because I think it’s awesome that he has such a connection with his heritage (and maybe just a tiny wee bit because kilts are supah sexay ). It’s just that I’m not sure how to match a kilt. I don’t want to make him to look like the odd person out, but I’m really not feeling navy/hunter green/red for our springtime garden wedding.
I’ve been planning on mismatched bridesmaid dresses or skirts+cardigans (actually, the three leftmost dresses below are sorta my dream combo – two Bridesmaid or Best Man in the beige and green, and my Maid/Matron of Honor in the multi-colored – but I’m thinking there’s no way that will coordinate with FI) but I’m worried that my “I love this color palette I’ve been swooning over for the past year” feelings are overwhelming my logical “Does this coordinate at all?” decision-making abilities. What do you guys think of this combo? Workable or total fail? Abandon the jadeite and pink, and go more nude-grey; or suck it up and find something in blue?
Thank you bees so much for your opinions!
[The kilt is the closest I could find to his family tartan; handsome Prince William is standing in for FI’s brother, who will be wearing his Royal Air Force No1s as the Best Man; and lovely Miss Desiree will be my dress]
