The Boys

I am trying to decide what to dress the boys in. David, from JDK (our caterer/coordinator) had mentioned that brown pinstripe tuxes are really hot right now. When he first mentioned it, I admit that all I could think about was a pimp suit. The more I thought about it, though, I became intrigued. I wanted to see what he was talking about. I kind of feel like a black tux wouldn't really fit in with our wedding - there will be no black, anywhere, in our decor or anything. Plus, it's done at every wedding. And, well, I'm not exactly mainstream when it comes to stuff like that. So I looked into it, and I really like what I see. Hee hee - he's headless. But anyway, you get the drift. It's a monochromatic pinstripe, so it's not so "pimpy." I am thinking that maybe I would put the boys in these brown tuxes. Have Matt in an ivory shirt with an ivory vest, and the boys in either a brown vest or a blue vest to match the girls (whatever blue we end up getting for them - peacock or navy).

I also decided that I want to make Matt stand out a bit (not just with a different colored vest). Usually the groom has a slightly different boutonniere. And I came across this one (in the middle) and thought it would be perfect:

I'm having button mums in my bouquet, the girls' bouquets, and the centerpieces. They're nice and small and don't overwhelm the feather. Yay!
