deciding upon a “look” for the wedding party can be a really hard decision! you don’t want to make people wear clothes they’re not comfortable in. you don’t want to break the bank. you want to be original. it’s tough!
my plans for the “look” of our wedding party has changed so so many times. i figured it might help me to lay out my options and get some feedback. so please, honest opinions on what looks look the best, please let me know!
first of all, brad and i decided on blue as our wedding color. we’re thinking a pretty aqua-ish blue (we both have blue eyes and it’s brad’s favorite color), but, i didn’t want to force my bridesmaids to buy an aqua dress none of them would ever have any chance of wearing again. so, i decided on black bridesmaids dresses. my sister (maid of honor) and i found a bill levkoff dress that we both love. it’s strapless, has pockets, complements my dress, and seems flattering. we also went with silver simply vera by vera wang necklaces (they’re already purchased). here’s the bridesmaid look:
the girls won’t wear these exact shoes. i’m asking them to wear black shoes – i just really like these! 🙂 i’m thinking that the flowers will have to have some blue to tie the bridesmaids’ look with the blue color we chose.
(flowers aren’t decided upon yet – i’ll be asking for opinions on them soon!)
now, it’s the guys that i’m really having trouble with. i’ve been tossing 3 ideas around in my head and i’d love some feedback!
option 1: guys wear black shirts with black tuxes and then have blue ties + napkins for their pockets for a pop of color (similar to what they did in the photo below)
what worries me about this look is if it will be too much black with the girls wearing black dresses and the guys in all black.
option 2: guys wear grey tuxes with white shirts and aqua blue ties like this photo below. i included the first photo so you could get an idea of the grey tuxes with dark dresses.
with this look, i’m afraid the bridesmaids and groomsmen won’t look like they go together enough. i don’t think it has to be matchy matchy, but i want it to be cohesive. do you think this look can go with my bridesmaids’ look?
option 3: traditional black tuxes with white shirts and blue ties + napkins.
my problem with this is just that’s it’s so traditional. i like how it looks and i know it would go with my bridesmaids, i just don’t know if i want something so traditional.
ok, those are the options we’re thinking about right now for our bridal party “look.” now i need your help!
