FI and I have chosen to have:
(Already purchased) Medium grey suits, with white shirts
Champagne ties for GM, possibly mint tie (we’re using mint as an accent colour!) for FI,
Champagne BM dresses
What I’m concerned about is…
(already purchased, I found it on sale and couldn’t pass it up!) Ivory flower girl dress,
What colour for ring barer? I was thinking a suit the same as GM, or to have RB & FG match?
I was thinking on one hand, the contrast between my dress (haven’t got it yet, but planning for white!) and the ivory, may make the ivory look ‘dirty’… but on the other hand, it might be a cool way to ombre?
Help me please, Bees!

@JL4SM: The ivory flower girl dress will look fine. White doesn’t make ivory look dingy. It makes it look ivory.
Some of the most elegant interior designers do room in all shades of white, ivory, cream etc.
I would have the ring bearer in a shade of grey. It needn’t be the exact same color as the men.
Depending on his age, and the formality of your event, he could wear a suit, vest, pants and shirt, or a cute outfit of grey pants, white shirt, suspenders and newsboy cap.

@julies1949: thank you! you’ve eased my worries a little. i like to think i have a good eye for design, etc, but with something as huge as a wedding – the pressure is on and i don’t want to get something wrong hahaha.
