- Wedding: December 2012
I need your expert opinions on color here. Here’s the back story – We have a tiny wedding party – I’ll just have my sister as my Maid/Matron of Honor (no other bridesmaids), and my fiance will have his sister as his best man (no groomsmen). Our flower colors are jewel tones of purple and blue with pops of lime. Fiance had originally planned to wear a charcoal suit, and I’d asked my Maid/Matron of Honor and fiance’s sister to choose their own dark blue dresses. My sister chose this dress, which is apparently a combo between purple and blue (I’ve only seen pics, haven’t seen it in person).
Then, fiance and I went suit shopping (which he’d been procrastinating on), and he really really liked this suit, which is kind of like a soft blue:
Do you think these colors look weird together? He’s willing to wear charcoal if I veto it, but I of course want him to feel special on our big day too! (He’s worried a charcoal suit feels too ordinary, and it did not help that the guy in the suit shop told us EVERYONE’S wearing charcoal to their weddings this year.)
And if you think the colors could work together, what color dress do you think I should tell his sister (the best (wo)man) to buy? She hasn’t bought her dress yet, and I was already worried about her finding a dress that would coordinate with my sister’s dress since my sister chose such an unusual color. Ack, I’m not sure what to do,
Oh and FWIW, there are pics of MY dress here: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/ordered-my-dress-it-has-sleeves-help-with-accessories
Thanks so much, everyone!!
