I think all of the bouquets are beautiful, and the dresses, too – I love purple and red for fall with orange accents, and I think your dress is also beautiful but might tie in better with a bright sash that matches your bridesmaids.

I also love the ceremony venue – I’m a country girl at heart, and this really speaks to me. For your dance and reception area, I think because the ceiling is low, you need lots of sparkly lights or candles to give it some elegance.

I would do GM and groom in suits for sure, not tuxes, and maybe gray or brown rather than black. I’d do their accents in red, personally, rather than the purple – I can’t exactly explain why I feel this way, but I guess I think the purple shouldn’t take over – its nice as an accent, though, and I think it’s nice on the bridesmaids. <br /><br />Don’t overthink the jewelry – sparkly stuff is always pretty. As far as gifts, I am giving my girls their jewelry and a pretty hairpiece, and calling it good. Groomsmen, give them beer steins or flasks-<br />these are also cool: https://www.etsy.com/listing/125831551/personalized-corkscrew-and-multi-tool?ref=market

and this, in a higher price point: https://www.etsy.com/listing/170254948/groomsmen-gift-personalized-midnight?ref=market

For parent gifts, maybe a framed photo (if you did engagement pics) or something simple and nice for the house. I wouldn’t over think it – I’ve been in a few weddings, and I never once did it for the gifts – I always did it because I loved and cared about the person.

oilfieldhoney:  I think it all looks lovely. As dressy as the maids will be, I would go with suits, or at least dress pants and vests.

However, I am trying to go for a glam look on my side and a more dressed down look on his side, so they will be wearing jeans and vests.
