The Look

I'm not totally sure what bridesmaid dresses I want, but we have a definite look we are going for. Very nautical and Newport. My fiance is extremely laid back and was pretty excited at the idea of wearing a navy blazer and khakis over a tux. When we first started talking about weddings, he told me he wanted to get married on the beach in shorts and a Hawaain shirt. I wanted something a little more formal, so this seems like the perfect compromise. More casual for him, but formal enough for me. I think the look is more "us".





I can't wait to pick out my flower girl a.k.a. my god-daughter's dress! How adorable are these kids?

I think this "look" screams relaxed and casual, which I think leads to a relaxing and fun day. Don't these people look like their having a good time?

What "look" are you going for?

For picking out your little God Daughters dress if you aren't going to go the bridal salon store it's really good to check around the big holidays, especially easter.

We ran into some big issues of trying to find stuff for little kids until Easter came and then it just magically appeared.

Love the nautical theme with the sports coat and kahki's! Very east coast-ish. Can't wait to see what you end up going with!

the groomsmen attire in my wedding was almost identical as the top picture. they wore khaki-colored linen pants, a navy blazer, and a pink vineyard vines tie that we gave as a gift. they all loved it. there are pics on my blog!

I am so excited I found your blog! We're also getting married in Newport and having a nautical theme. It's funny coz my fiance's dream wedding is on the beach and him wearing shorts and a Hawaiian shirt! I just posted about it on my blog: http://www.gnyc.net/senseless/2009/01/26/whos-wearing-shorts-to-my-wedding/. Think we're marrying twins? :)
