- Wedding: July 2012
So, I’ve found my dream dress… but it doesn’t match the rest of my dream! argh! I had to pick the dress, because no dress could ever compare for me, so there’s no regret there, but the ideas I’ve had about groom and groomsmen attire don’t fit now. Help!
We are having a rustic, country wedding at a mountain church, with an outdoor reception on the back lawn. I purchased the Maggie Sottero Chadley, and we are changing the waist to a more drop/basque waist, rather than the inverted V as it comes. Here is a pic of the dress with the extra wast tucked under the longline bra, but it’s a general idea:
So, we had been thinking that the groomsmen would wear nice jeans, long-sleeved white shirts, and brown cowboy boots (looking at short summery organza dresses in chocolate brown for bridesmaids) and the groom would wear the same but add a brown sportscoat for the ceremony. But, I think the dress is too dressy for that, right? I mean, I knew when I bought the dress that it wasnt entirely appropriate for the venue or the event, but I don’t really care because it felt so fabulous. Honestly, I am kind of ambivalent about whatever the guys end up wearing, but I don’t want it to look like they were going to a picnic and I showed up for a ball. haha!
Ideas? The colors are chocolate, white, and light green, and all the decor/flowers have a country/rustic feel. Think: branches, wood, burlap, lemonade, barbecue, string lights, and comfort. Here is my pinterest board: http://pinterest.com/dragonfly0125/wedding/
and the detail on the bodice:
Maybe it’s not too dressy? But still, what the heck should the guys wear? It will be July, so HOT (we will be outside Las Vegas in the mountains so 10-15 degrees cooler, but still 85 to 90 degrees) and my Fiance is 6’7″, and one of his groomsmen is a heavier guy, so my Fiance is concerned about a look that suits all of them, and is still easy for them to find for reasonable cost. (he’s very practical) I’m open to anything, but would like them to still feel pretty casual.
