Oyster colored dress....what does FI wear???

Recommended Posts

I've been searching for this topic and have yet to come across so I'm reaching out to anyone with some advice.  My dress is oyster colored and I love it.  However, white looks horrific when you put it beside it.  I'm at a loss on what to do about FI's attire. We are ordering him a tan linen suit, but do I just go with the white shirt even though it looks horrible or use another alternative of a natural color or something?  If anyone has had an oyster or even ivory colored dress what did you do?

 

My dress is in the following thread

Are you committed to the tan linen? My BFF just got married in oyster and had this same issue which we agonized over!! We (I planned the wedding) ordered her FI a gray seersucker suit - it looked amazing. I think his shirt was white but because his suit basically matched her dress, it looked great. Or, if you can deal with a black suit in the heat, black suit and pale gray shirt. Your dress is fairly formal so you could definitely carry that off.

If you are doing tan linen no matter what, you could do a soft white shirt, you know the off-white color that beach shirts sometimes are? And take a swatch of your dress to wrap his boutonniere - that way you have a tie-in. 

We are getting married ONE WEEK before you!!

Does white really look that bad? I would think the combination of a tan suit, oyster dress, and a white short on him would blend together fine as they're all neutral colours. Maybe I just can't picture it right in my head.

 

If you're set on the tan suit (which I think would look nice), why not a coloured shirt to match your wedding colour?? My FI is going a little untraditional and his shirt is matching the same colour as our BM dresses, which is turqouise. Our groomsmen will wear white shirts and my dress is white.

I originally thought that white would be fine but I pulled out a white dress shirt of his and put it up next to my dress and they look awful next to each other.  I just found an 'almond' colored dress shirt at Macy's online so I'm going to go tonight to look at it with a piece of the fabric from my dress.  I'm hoping this will be a much better option for us.

Omg girls.. I'm having the same problem!! I haven't bought the dress yet cause I'm confused about my colors also. I'm thinking of having my dress oyster my FI in a tan suit and then the BM in red dresses and the groomsman in tan pants and white shirts... But I'm not 100% on it yet. What do you gals think??? 

 

Originally i wanted to have the BM in champagne dresses with red roses but ...now I'm just totally confused :(  I wonder if the red will be too much..

 

I mean really is the oyster really that noticeable??

 

Please help............

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
