- Wedding: July 2013
We are having a July wedding and the ceremony is outdoors at a Golf Course. Our colours are yellow and green and our theme is travel (think globes, suitcases, maps, photographs of places we’ve visited). I’m having a hard time working out the attire details. Here’s what I know:
1. Bridesmaids will be wearing Twobirds Bridesmaid (short straight) in either Kelly Green or Mint (I’m pushing Mint, my Maid/Matron of Honor is pushing for Kelly) OR Dessy Twist Wrap Dress: Short in either Green Apple or Clover. (This will be decided once the girls try on the dresses). Their shoes will be a nice bright yellow (I’m told it’s canary). Bouquets will be mostly yellow flowers with hints of white and some greenery.
2. Groomsmen already have their suits. They are wearing Grey Pronto Uomo Couture suits with some nice stripes (I cannot find the model online). Twobirds has ties that match the bridesmaids’ dresses, so if we go with them, that will be the tie colour. Each Groomsmen is in charge of their own shoes. The boutineers’ will be yellow with a touch of greenery. Our Dads’ have their own suits, but will have matching shirts and ties.
So, here’s my question, what colour shirts to the Groomsmen and Groom wear? I wanted a nice bright yellow (not buttercup, more like the colour of a daffodil), but we are having a hard time finding one (it might not be the correct season to be looking). My Fiance (who is blonde), just pointed out that he might not look good in yellow (he hasn’t tried a shirt on, so we don’t know). I have never thought of having a white or ivory shirt (too boring for my taste), so I am not sure what else I could do.
