My Bridesmaid flies in from Calgary this week so we are going dress shopping for them on Thursday (EXCITING)... My girls are going to wear deep purple. I only have 2 girls in my wedding party (+ my flower girl who will probably wear white with a purple waist band or something.) Now, for the guys - I have no clue. My FH doesn't want me to get involved in what he wears... but I HAVE to! Lol.

 

I've suggested grey linen with a purple tie (a vest with no jacket, sleeves rolled up... LOVE IT) but he apparently doesn't like grey because it is gloomy. I really don't think a beige suit can incorporate any purple, it just won't work. I have potentially sold him on a light grey suit (borderline white, but not quite...) But I will only be using Turquoise to accent the purple wherever I can.

 

We've definitely challenged ourselves with these colours, but I love them so - Challenge Accepted.

My fiance said the same thing about what he's wearing. He said " I had no choice in choosing your dress- that was your own experience. It should be the same for my suit."luckily- he has pretty impeccable taste and my friend owns and operates a Custom Clothiers Company and his suit is being custom made by her. I did argue with my mom and my bridesmaids a tad because they said- what if he picks something that doesn't match our dresses? and I told them we would wait to buy dresses and buy them to match his suit. I think its only fair. So I kept my options for dresses open and showed him my choices. For each choice he picked a suit that would match. When he chose his suit, we just picked the dress that went best with it. Fortunately- the bridesmaids first choice ended up being the one that matched his suit best.

 

I looooove the grey and purple combination. I wanted him to pick that and then we would have gone with turquoise dresses. He ended up picking a dark grey suit with a pattern that has faint blue lines. The suit looks more blue than grey actually, so our girls went with a peacock jewel tones dress. I had several palette options for my color scheme- but I let him pick his suit first.

Hmmm .. maybe I should just let him figure out the guys stuff then haha sounds a lot easier! I am pretty laid back about everything I just am having a hard time trying to figure out what would look good together. Thanks for the input! I'll keep looking and will eventually figure something out

Love, love, love this look, when i pictured a destination wedding i pictured all the guys in white shirts with the sleeves rolled up!!!!!!

 

And I am sure that you will figure out something for them to wear... what about Ivory and Purple???

We are having deep purple BM Dresses, grey suit pants, white shirts and purple ties and shoes for the guys...so cool we pretty much have the same idea! My groom is wearing a vest and green shoes/tie to stand out. But yeah, sleeves rolled up their forearms for sure..sexy look!

OMG I can't wait to get married! LOL It feels so far away. It's just when you are working overtime to pay for your wedding, and attending the pre-cana religious courses, and shopping for things online- all the pieces make you eager with anticipation. woot.gifLets get this show on the road...anyone wonder what the heck they will pool all their energy into once they get married?

 

Going back to school for me so I can get a promotion. I am currently a teacher and hoping to get into a program to become a school principal. Not as fun as planning a wedding though... lol

I want a honeymoon baby too! But that would certainly interfere with school. Plus the hubby was thrilled when I told him I was considering going back to school because although I am ready for my honeymoon baby- he is not. He says he wants to enjoy being married, just the two of us for a little, but I think he's secretly scared. I don't want to push him before he's ready. He is more like "financially I want to be sound and we should buy a house first" and I tell him "no one is ever financially ready for a baby." LOL Except maybe millionaires who can pay for private hospitals and nannies and chefs and guest houses for their nannies and chefs.

Lol. It's true. No one is every financially "ready" for a baby. Lucky for me, my man has 8 years on me, and was probably ready for a baby a couple years ago. But I want to be married first. We've lived together in his home for 4 years now... so I think we're as ready as we're ever going to be.

Sweet. Same for me- somewhat. I wanted to be married first. Got a lot of flak for that oddly enough. It's =just a thing I have. I know nowadays marriage doesn't equal security but it's important for me. Good for you for waiting!
