- Wedding: May 2012
I am new to the board and my first dilemna that I have found really hard for me to decide on is fiance’s and groomsmen attire, although I went into it knowing exactly what I wanted. My bridesmaids are wearing rose petal color dresses from David’s Bridal, and chose to get our tuxes from Mens Wearhouse as everyone is from out of town and this will make it more convenient.
Well.. long story short, Men’s Wearhouse does not color match as well as they make it seem to Davids Bridal. So, there is no pink option that matches the bridesmaids dresses. Instead, we have chosen to go with a lighter pink vest with small diamonds that match the dresses and I am going to buy my own ties that will match better (I didnt like the tie option with the vest). Also, I’ve decided on grey tuxedos for Fiance and groomsmen (LOVE the gray and pink look).
My main concern is what my fiance should wear. We initially picked out a white-ish vest with small gray diamonds (same as groomsmen but diff color) and then get a gray tie to match. But, my dress is an ivory color from Davids Bridal, which in my opinion is more of a diamond or off white and does not really look ivory at all. I know this is a debated topic, but should they all wear ivory or white shirts? (Ivory looked sooo much more ivory, but maybe I should take my dress in and compare to shirt??) Is it a risk to have my Fiance in any form of white-ish vest, even if it isnt that white to risk not matching my dress?? And what about pocket silks?!
Last thing —- my wedding colors are pink and peach with gray. I was thinking to incorporate the peach, all the groomsmen could have peach boutinneires, and Fiance in white rose (but… along with the rest of this issue, should the rose be ivory!)
HELP.. I’m going in circles debating this!
