Our wedding: The wedding party

The bridesmaids

Before I got engaged, I didn’t realize just how helpful the bridal party is. Though we weren’t all in the same city during the planning stages, my bridesmaids were so supportive and helpful throughout.

To honor my dear friends and sister, I wanted to let them choose their own dresses. I figured, they’re paying for it, they’re the ones that are wearing it…let’s make sure it’s something they like.

Two bridesmaids and I went to the gown shop and we chose a color that we all liked (and I hoped the other two would like, as well). Then, they chose a dress style made by the same designer. The fabrics were the same, and came from the same dye lot as well. Everyone looked like they belonged to the same bridal party, and everyone looked good. Prices ranged from $90 to $136 before tax, I believe.

The groomsmen


To outfit the men standing at my husband’s side, we opted to have them all wear black suits. They could wear one they already had, rent one, or buy one if they thought they’d get future use out of it. My husband bought his suit, and he’s already gotten three additional wears out of it.

I selected ties that went well with the bridesmaid’s dresses, and got one for the groom, groomsmen and our fathers.

  1. We also did navy suits for our wedding.

    To me, it’s a lot less fakey than tuxedoes, unless you are having a ballroom style reception, that is.

  2. Nice. My husband’s a professor which meant he already had a nice black suit. They’re a good investment anyway.

  3. Yeah, every man needs a nice black suit, I think.

    I knew our wedding would never be formal enough to warrant tuxedos, so black suits, it was!
