Happy New Years Ladies! 2013 is here and I will be in Maui Hawaii next year for our 15th Anni...
So @justmeandhim brought up a great topic. white vs. ivory!!
as you all know (well those that read my previous posts) my dress is Ivory. I picked ivory because the material in white is blinding (my eyes actually hurt a little looking at the dress) and i do not want to cause any pain for my guests lol. i was able to get an ivory swatch of my fabric and i loved it, not blinding and should show off the white beading beautifully!! cant wait to see it in person end of Feb.-early march when it comes in!!
anyways i am anal retentive also and it does worry me that white linen with a gold overlay might make my dress look dingy...but i also know a friend of mine just got married and her dress was also ivory. she had white chair covers and white table clothes and the pictures people took and are on FB look great! so maybe i'm worrying over nothing......i'm meeting with a floralist saturday so i will have to see then.
I also i'm not sure about what to do with tuxs.....i know men's wearhouse only does white and black dress shirts. i hate how ivory vest and ties look ontop of white shirts.....i'm not sure if i really want the guys to wear black shirts or if FH does......I believe president tux does have ivory shirts and will have to check them out.
my question is should all the guys have ivory shirts (groomsmen would have red tie/vest, dads black tie/vest, FH ivory)? or should just FH? or i've also been told by one of the ladies i got my dress from that she too is getting married and has an ivory maggie dress and her groom is wearing a white shirt and diamond white tie and vest and thinks it looks great with her dress. so should i do that?
I know what i should do is take my swatch to president tux and see what all these opitions look like together......
Just wondering what you ladies think?
update: starting to think ivory vest and ties doesnt look that bad with white shirt.....will have to do more research......lol
