Wedding Wednesday- Solving the Epic Clash of Bridal Party Visions

by - Wednesday, March 21, 2012

So, this issue has pretty much been under hot debate for three months now (and by hot debate I mean every so often it comes up in conversation and we both maintain our previous opinions)- The Boy and I have different ideas of what the bridal party would look like- the truth is that the reason this hasn't been resolved is that we haven't actually gone with the bridesmaids to try on shoes or been able to try the different kinds of ties with his suits, but those things are happening in a week and a half when we are back, so I will break down the conflict, so we are ready to go.

The theme of our wedding, loosely, is classy nerd picnic. Because we are nerds, and we want it to feel casual and outdoorsy, while still being classy. The conflict at hand is dependent on emphasis. The Boy is looking for a CLASSY nerd picnic-

Groomsmen have grey tuxes, black ties, and one pop of color in the boutonniere. Flower girl in plain either white or match purple dress. Bridemaids in neutral shoes.


Where as I want a classy NERD picnic-

Ok, so my vision- bridesmaids in red shoes (preferably polka dot), flower girls in something with more dots, less traditional, and the groomsmen with colored and patterned ties (I really like bow ties, but honestly I don't think the boy would feel comfortable... but come on, nerd wedding sort of screams bow ties).



Of course, like everything in life, there are plenty of compromises available, which I would put in this category- Classy Nerd picnic- I think that my vision honestly might be too quirky for the church, but I still think there are some fun ideas there, and it wouldn't feel as boring traditional wedding.

So keeping in mind the formality of the church and casualness of the theme, I am pretty sure we will have to come to some sort of compromise, but we need to see the stuff in real life on our people. There is no point in debating about ties and colors and shoes anymore, because maybe I would hate the polka dot shoe when I saw it on a person, or maybe Nick would change his mind when he gets to actually see his suit (which he just had sent home). We'll figure it out!
