- Wedding: December 2010
Picking our tuxes was hard and a little stressful. I am such an indecisive person, and the big problem is that I have an ivory dress and hate ivory! Thus, the shirts of the guys needed to be ivory, etc. I didn’t want my groom in ivory(since I don’t like it). I wanted him in silver. Well they said silver would only look good with white shirt. I was worried of white clashing with my dress, although I think it’s only a slight difference.
So since it is winter, and it is more masculine, we went for darker colors. We are doing something nontraditional.
We’re doing black tuxes, with black shirts. The groomsmen and dads will have dark purple paisley pattern vests and ties. My groom will have a (lighter) silver paisley vest with silver bowtie.. They’re also getting black shiny shoes. Anyways, just thought I’d share. I hope it looks okay.
My bridesmaids are wearing lavender(a more purplish shade that’s shiny and not too light).
They’re going to have lavender bouts, and the bridesmaids have 2 shades of lavender in their bouquets(lighter and darker lavender)
My flowergirl is in lavender and has a white daisies pomander/flower kissing ball.
My bouquet is white roses with lavender(to offset the difference between my dress being ivory) My dress is a light ivory though.
