We have picked out tan linen pants, drawstring and a short sleeved collarless button up shirt for him and I'm wearing a dress similar to yours, but it is a halter with a lace insert in the train and silver trim on the halter. ($99.00 on the rack, except I added the lace on the train)
This is our second marriage each, so we are probably more lax than others. We both feel very comfortable in what we are wearing and that was what mattered to us. To the outside world, I'm sure my dress looks a lot more "dressy" than his attire, but that is "us". He's the plain silver band and I'm the dress it up with diamonds girl.
That is a beautiful dress. Good luck on your upcoming marriage
Thank you so much Apprentice! I really liked it and it's not as heavy as some of the other dresses I tried on. I think we are going to go with khaki's and a white shirt and then he's going to change into linen pants before we take everyone out to dinner (I'm changing into a shorter dinner dress as well). I can't wait!
What kind of shorter dress are you wearing? I have been looking for something similar, but I'm only finding "cocktail" dresses or church dresses. One's too dressy and the other not at all what I'm looking for.????
I found my dress at Nordstroms.com. They have really nice dresses from on the beach, to walking down the aisle. Also they are very reasonable. I also found serveral on craigslist.com, new never woren. Good luck, and congratulations
They have custom made linen suits for $99. It sounds too good to be true but the reviews I've seen have been good and I just got the shipping confirmation for the one we ordered so I'll know in a few days.
