Sooooo FI have decided that we want our wedding to be as laid back as possible. I told my BMs to wear whatever they wanted to wear for the wedding. Together we picked out 4 or five colors and I said they could pick out any dress style they wanted. They could choose sun dresses or, if they wanted, a long dress. Whatever made them feel comfortable, they could wear. (They've both chosen a type of yellow and one will be in a semi-formal cocktail dress and the other in a very casual sundress. Totally cool with it, so what if they don't match? FI's groomsmen did the same thing, one is wearing a blue suit, and one is wearing a black suit. FI is wearing a charcoal suit with a vest. (They won't be wearing jackets and will just up roll the sleeves.) I have been told by so many people that this just won't look "right" With the girls' dresses being different styles and shades of yellow, and the guys all wearing different colors, and the mix of formal and informal, it will look like a hodgepodge mess. My thoughts....So What? Is everyone happy with what they are wearing? Are they comfortable? Are they happy they get to wear something more than once? (BM dresses rarely get worn again and the guys always complain they never get a chance to wear their suits) Do they feel great in it? Then why the freak does it matter? We're happy, they're happy so who cares if we look like a hodgepodge? I just hate all the unsolicited advice about how "terrible" this will look. Poo on you! I guess we shall all look "terrible" together!
Little rant over...Thanks for reading
