    Hi All,

    So we went to pick up my FI's linen suit from alterations yesterday and the sales guy found us the most amazing shirt. It's a very light white cotton and has embroidered white stripes with a light blue detailing through the front beside the buttons and a little on the back. It looks absolutely amazing on him and with his suit. (i'll try to post pics later)

    The problem is that I had my colours set on being a deep purple and lime green. I really want to make sure things coordinate a bit. What do you think I should do here? Here's the link the bridesmaid dresses:


    I've added the poll but if you have any other suggestions please feel free to let me know.

    Thank you in advance for any advice you can give me!!!

      I don't know how much detailing of blue there is, and how wide the stripes are, but I say if it's a great shirt, he can wear it on another occasion, so it's not as if it'd be a waste for having it! Perhaps a plain white shirt for the wedding might work better, so there are no regrets later. I don't think that the blue and green would match, i am sure the purple and blue would be fine, though. it's what you think is best, as always. good luck deciding!

        If your FI looks fantastuic in the shirt I think it deserves inclusion in the wedding.

        I would probably use the Deep purple and light blue as your main colours and use lime green for splashes and highlights - I think it will add depth to your colour palatte and allow room for really fun little features...

          BTW here are some pics of the shirt:

          They truly don't do it justice.

          After giving this some thought I really don't think it's a big deal. He's wearing his jacket for the ceremony and pics so it's covered then. It would be way too much work to rearrange the colours.

            The detailing is so minimal that I think he should wear it. If he has his jacket on, you will barely notice it. If you love the shirt and he looks good in it, then go for it! You are the bride and groom and should be able to wear whatever you choose!

              I agree with Scott-Pierre. It looks like when you do it up there is only going to be a half inch of detailing showing. With a jacked overtop I think you will be able to pull it off.
