Colour dilemma.... I had picked my colours of Navy, Blush and Rose Gold. My dress is ivory. My table decorations are navy, banners etc Navy. My H2B has decided he doesn't want a navy suit, we are getting married abroad. Help, do I insist on him having Navy or will another colour be suitable ?
Congratulations on your up coming wedding. I think it would be a nice idea to let him decide, you can always have navy for the grooms men tie’s etc and your H2B in the blush/rose gold or vice versa. You could ask him to try a navy suit, but let him have his say on what his grooms people are going to wear. It will make him feel involved and valued. Good luck and best wishes. x
Thank you Emma but I forgot to add that it's only us two at the marrage abroad.
We are having a big reception when we get back.
Hi could wear a lighter blue or light grey :)
Ah i see. Hmmm, perhaps go with him and try a few different things on. You never know he may actually end up liking navy. x
It should really be a joint decision but maybe if you let him try other colours he will see your way ... or you will see his. One of my friend's H2B wore white and it was stunning. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
We aren’t having suits we have cream chinos and white shirts with navy braces and bow ties. Maybe use your colours for the accessories?
That's a great idea Kate. I think his thinking is he already has a navy suit why buy another. Plus its going to be very hot
Further to Kate's comment, we are also not having suits as we are getting married in July. The groom and other men in the bridal party are wearing trousers and waistcoats from matching 3-piece suits with grandpa shirts (all the same except for grooms waistcoat which is a different fabric). They are wearing light grey (and bought the jackets so that they have the full suits afterwards).
That's a good idea Susan
As long as it's not a clashing colour it won't matter that he's in a different colour.
My bridemaid and my OH's groomsman are going to be in navy, my OH has a purple suit (like a dark Cadbury purple) and my dress is ivory and champagne. All accessories are going to be silver in colour.
My theme was navy! My husband had a grey suite but a navy tie. So maybe if he does that or have a navy pocket square instead
Thank you everyone, some great ideas here. I suppose it's my ocd kicking in here. But at end of day on our wedding day it will be just the both of us. No guests until we return home for our reception.
My colour scheme is blush grey and rose gold,blush bridesmaid rose gold table decs nd h2b is wearing grey suite with rose gold tie.
Grey and navy look lovely? He could still have navy suit accessories
Nia. Mines Navy, blush and rose gold.
Think I'm going to have to be more open minded on this !
Insist? Surely it's his choice to?
Let him wear what he's comfortable in. In years to come you won't be reminiscing about the colours of the day. It's all about the memories and the sharing of love. I've told everyone including my bridesmaids to turn up in whatever they like. Be that a gorgeous dress or a unicorn onesie. As long as everyone is happy and supportive that's what a wedding is about.
We are getting married abroad and my h2b and the men in the wedding party will be in blue chino shorts and we are having blue bridesmaid dress and bits of blue in the flowers and where we can. We are getting married on the beach so we thought it would look great next to the sea. I’m trying not to get too stressed about it. Doesn’t matter about the clothes, what matters is the marriage and the promises you make to each other - in saying that I’m stressing about my dress xx
grey looks lovely with Navy, as does beige. Don't worry, just let him wear what he wants and match his tie.
What about a navy calico
You wouldn't want him dictating what dress you wear- let the man be comfortable and choose his own suit
I have the same colour scheme and my OH is wearing a light grey suit x
Loads of great suggestions and advice. Thank you everyone xxx
Just let your h2b wear hay he wants to xx
Why not just have a navy tie/bowtie?
What about grey? A light grey?
I’m looking to get married abroad but don’t know where to start. We are going Malta in August and I think that will be the place x
It's been difficult for us as both been married before. We have hired a wedding planner to help. Its costing us more as we are having a private ceremony abroad and then a reception when back
