Welcome to post #2 of our wedding! If you missed the first one, see here.
One of the most special parts of our big day was sharing it with our closest friends and family: our bridal party. All of our best friends and siblings stood up with us as we promised to grow old and disgusting together (wink), and that was just so precious to us.
PS: If you haven’t checked out our photographer, Molly Connor, yet, get on over to her website!
First: My Ladies
It honestly took me quite some time to figure out my color scheme and what I wanted to do for bridesmaid dresses. I knew that I didn’t want them to all wear the exact same dress, but I went ba
ck and forth between having them all wear different colors of the same dress, different dresses of the same color, or just different dresses altogether. I ended up finally deciding on different dresses in the same color, which was David Bridal’s “Peacock.” It was important to me that my girls be able to choose their own dresses to suit their own individual styles and to feel comfortable. They all looked amazing!
Just a tad chilly in December!
Next: The Gents
Because I wanted the entire shebang to have an overall vintage feel, I was really adamant about the guys’ tuxes fitting in as well. I didn’t want them to wear just your average cookie cutter tux. In fact, when we first ordered the tuxes, we went with a chocolate brown! However, that night, I immediately thought, “Seriously? Brown? No way.” We went back the next day and changed to grey. So glad we did. I begged Brett to get the upgraded tux, which included a matching vest because to me, that aspect really tied the whole vintage theme together. We are so, so lucky that we had such an amazing bridal party who were willing to spend their hard earned money on wedding attire!! The tuxes we chose were Black by Vera Wang.
Finally: All Together Now!
