The best man and groom will both be wearing white linen shirts from Old Navy:
FI is wearing white linen pants with it, while the best man is wearing khaki pants.
My dad, unbeknownst to me, also picked up a white shirt for the day. At least it is short-sleeved, so it is not exactly the same.
This is my sister's (MOH) dress. My BM, who will only be joining us for the AHR, will wear it then too.
Hmm, it seems the only pictures I have are pre-alteration. Well, it needed to be taken in and up a bit, but here is an idea anyway. She is also wearing tights in the pic because she quickly threw it on over her clothes the first time she tried it.
She can wear whatever shoes she wants (if any) and jewelry. I am giving her pearls as part of her gift, but I am not sure if they will go or not for that day; I am leaving that up to her. She is thinking maybe gold wedges. She is getting a bracelet from me as well that she may choose to wear, along with her corsage.
We had a heck of a time finding a dress for the girls. There are so many shades of coral out there, and we were on a serious budget and wanted to pay for the dresses ourselves. FI was actually pickier than me! Hahaha! But it is beachy and a little vintage-looking I think; I love it! Plus the price was awesome - from Forever 21; I think they were $32 each or something like that.
I have no idea what my mom is wearing, if she has started shopping. My brothers are going to walk her down the aisle; I told them a solid light coloured shirt and khakis or something. They can wear whatever they like (but not white! grrr). FI's dad is wearing something patterned; not sure what yet. FI's mom has a colourful sundress in shades of blue, with pink, orange, and coral flowers on it. It is very pretty.
Now, the best part. MY attire!
On my first day of shopping we opted to check out the two bridal stores in my town. We just thought we would have fun, I would then go to a bigger city and order something, and so on. Well, wouldn't you know it, I found something I really liked that day!
FI wanted me in a short dress, but he is going to have to be disappointed! In the second store, my mom and sister pulled a dress off the clearance racks that looked pretty unimpressive on the hanger. But I started giggling when I was trying it on. I love the corset style back (FI's one request if I got a long dress) and though I was not looking for strapless, I think this totally works on me! I was not sure about the flower and beading details at the top, but I really like it on! I think it looks beachy and pretty. I had to have it shortened a bit, and a bustle added. But here it is the first time I tried it on.
And for comparison, on the model.
I LOVE shoes. I found flats at Old Navy that look like they have starfish on them, which I might change into as the night progresses. But for the ceremony, I knew I needed some height, even though we are getting married on the beach. I am 5'2"; FI is 6'6". Yeah, height was necessary. Wedges it is! I found bright blue wedges (okay, FI actually found them) last summer in a mall (for $30!), and I added the sparkly starfish detail (actually buttons I found in a fabric store that reminded me of seashells).
I also made barefoot sandals. I am not sure when I will wear those; perhaps the TTD? If not, they are just fun to have for the honeymoon. And they were free to make, so oh well!
I won two pairs of earrings in a tophatter auction (online auction by etsy stores). They both feature pearls; one is smaller than the other. The bigger one is more sparkly; I am leaning towards that. I do not think I will wear a necklace. FI found me a set of two sparkly bracelets from groupon (I think) that he gave me, so I will probably wear those. Maybe on one wrist, with my pearl bracelet on the other.... honestly I will probably decide that on the day.
