- Wedding: October 2016
Hi all! FH and I are trying to figure out how our wedding colors should be incorporated into the wedding to make the whole wedding party look fairly cohesive. Our colors are navy, mint, and ivory/white/cream. We each have 7(!) attendants, who won’t have bouquets/boutonierres. Here’s the plan:
I’m going to be wearing a super gorgeous, fancy ivory dress with beadwork along the bodice and hips. I’m trying to dress it down a bit, so if I wear any jewelry at all it’ll just be a simple ivory pearl bracelet and perhaps a small pearl-decorated hair clip (I’m wearing my hair down). I’m also wearing mint flats, though they won’t be visible under the dress. I’m planning on a bouquet of cream roses, wrapped with mint and/or navy ribbon.
FH will be wearing a navy suit (very slim chance it’ll be charcoal, but neither of us like that as much), ivory shirt that’ll match my dress, mint tie, mint or black socks, and black shoes. His boutonniere will be wrapped with mint and/or navy ribbon to match the bouquet.
Groomsmen will be wearing mismatched dark gray/charcoal suits with either ivory shirts and navy ties OR navy shirts with no ties. I think we’re leaning toward the former… it’s kind of boring but oh well. They’ll be wearing their choice of black shoes.
Bridesmaids will be wearing mismatched navy (well, technically marine) dresses from David’s Bridal in any style they choose (everyone in the same fabric, chiffon, except for MOH), with their choice of black shoes. I’m thinking about giving them each a bracelet as part of their bridesmaid gift, made of ivory and/or mint glass pearls.
How does all of this sound? I’m not trying for perfection, just for semi-cohesiveness. Will my FH’s mint tie look cohesive enough in with everything else if the flowers are wrapped with navy and mint ribbon? Or should I add mint glass pearls to the bridesmaids’ bracelets as well? Or… suggestions?
Thanks so much!
