My wedding is june 2010 I have found out quickly that I fall in love the tons of diffrent stuff but when i try to put it together is turns out to look very..how do you say….TACKY…!!
My Brides maids dresses are aqua tea length
My dress is soft white/cream Davids Bridal Style: VC9833
Could use help with guys shirt color/tie color. I wanted it the same color as the dress but the best man informed me he hated it! my dress is soft white would it be ok if the groomsmens shirt was white?
What flowers should I use? I was thining hydrangeas in white.My mother said it would clash with my dress.
What color shoes should the girls wear?MOH found black ones she really wanted to wear.
Jewlery? I was leaning toward vintage pearls?

I don’t think the best man has to like it. 😉
I think you should relax and do what you think looks great. I think the pearls will be gorgeous with that dress,

I agree! It’s your wedding, and it doesn’t matter what the best man likes! If you’re still worried, silver may look nice with everything. The girls in a silver shoe would look nice with the dress color.
I think that white hydrangeas would look great with your dress. Why would your mom think it would clash? Do what you want! It’s your wedding and anything goes!

Ok, the best thing to do is to take it one peice at a time. If you start looking at EVERYTHING you have to do, you’ll get overwhelmed very quickly!
The Bridesmaid or Best Man dress is very pretty! However, I think black may not go as well with it, especially in a June wedding. Unless black is your accent color, then just ignore me! 🙂
As for the boys’ ties and flowers, what is your accent color? That may help you as far as flowers go.
I think a white shirt on the guys will be ok. It’s not like they’ll be so close to you, it’ll be noticeable. Plus, if they’re wearing a jacket, it’ll really not be noticeable.
Vintage pearls are always classic. In my opinion, they go with everything.
On a side note, I’d tell the best man to hush! So what if he doesn’t like it. It’s your wedding! I guess I’m just mean like that 🙂
Good luck! It will all turn out beautifully!!

I agree with the prior posts. White hydreangeas, or any white flowers will look beautiful with your dress and compliment the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses really nicely. I would also say that black shoes probably won’t look the best. I vote for silver.
The groomsmen’s shirts will look fine in white. For a tie, have you shopped around for something kind of simple, maybe a soft silver color? (I’m not the best when it comes to men’s fashion, though!)
See the aqua and white is so pretty:

How about adding in a lighter aqua as an accent color? It would still be in the same family, and you could have the groomsmen wear their ties/pocket squares in that color? Or lighter tie and the pocket square the dark aqua of the bridesmaids dresses? Definitely don’t do blue shirts. Trust your groomsmen on that one!! White will look perfectly fine next to your dress, I promise!
