- Wedding: September 2012
Need your advice bees!
We’re having an outdoor wedding at a state park with a reception at a private home I booked through a vacation rental. It’s located in a sleepy little town. I had planned for cocktail attire more or less (except for my dress pretty much, although it’s very simple and not princessy, no bling, etc.). My Fiance is just having a one groomsman, his Bridesmaid or Best Man. The Bridesmaid or Best Man couldn’t afford to fly out for the wedding and it was absolutely essential that he come (he’s a much loved childhood best friend) and so we happily paid for him to come. Anyway, he asked what he should wear and I told him our wedding colors (navy blue, mustard yellow, gray and white) and said he could just wear nice dark gray or blue dress pants, a white dress shirt and a coordinating tie, thinking it would be fine. I didn’t want to worry him (or us) about the cost for a suit and also didn’t want to worry about strictly coordinating suits between my Fiance and Bridesmaid or Best Man bc my Fiance didn’t even have his bought yet at the time. My bridesmaids are my two sisters. They are wearing entirely different dresses in shades of dark blue. Everyone will have yellow flowers.
Anyway, I find out that a couple of my guy friends are wearing suits. and now I’m worried the Bridesmaid or Best Man will feel underdressed. Plenty of my other guy friends are just wearing dress shirts and pants, I don’t think my dad is wearing a suit (as you can see, I’ve been pretty laid back about the attire), but now I’m second guessing my decision one week before the wedding! What do you think? Is it a big issue? A minor issue? A non-issue? If it’s an issue, could we even find a suit on such short notice?
