- Wedding: June 2011
I need some input on this topic. I am planning my casual-ish outdoor wedding for June 2011. I have this color scheme idea in my head and my fiance can’t seem to picture it and is not sure I’m making the right choices. I already have my dress, it’s a soft white color and a pretty simple style. I want to stick with this theme throughout the wedding….elegant but simple. I want to have the bridesmaids wear black strapless dresses that are a polished cotton material. For the groom and groomsmen, I would like to have them wear khaki suits with white shirts and robin’s egg blue ties. Maybe even ditch the jackets and have them wear khaki dress pants and khaki vests for a more simple, casual look. My problem is, the groom seems to think that since the guys outfit will have no black in it, the girls can’t wear black. They need to wear the robins egg blue color. I can picture my idea in my mind and it seems like it’d work. I feel like in pictures, everyone will just blend in if we all have light pastelish colors. I think the bridesmaids would “pop” if they had contrasting colors from the groomsmen. I am planning on pulling in the black in other places such as using a black and white damask print at the reception and a few places during the ceremony. Any input or photos to back up my idea would be very welcome!! Thanks girls!
