- Wedding: August 2013
My mom gave me trouble about making me pick what my dad would wear. I finally put him in the same khaki tux as the bridal party but with a different vest and tie(matching moms dress) and of course so future Father-In-Law wasnt left out did the same for him.
Now shes worrying about dictating what my brothers wear and has decided they should wear the same french blue shirts (wedding is navy and sunflower yellow) and khaki pants also with ties matching her dress. Her dress is cornflower blue. I cant seem to get across to her that the pics will look weird since FI’s sisters and their husbands probably wont all wear matching blues. Plus, she wants to make them wear ties and we are telling guests to wear dressy casual outfits since the wedding is outdoors on grass in August and its sort of a picnic theme with gingham centerpieces, bbq and lawn games.
What do I say to her? The Fiance is pretty upset about his family being left out or photos being too blue if they try to match too. Are we being too sensitive? I really didnt want to dictate what every family member wore since I have enough to worry about with 250 on the guest list and a DiY venue.
