The boys outfits were literally the easiest component of the whole bridal party organisation process. Both Doug and I knew from the get go that we wanted all the groomsmen to be in navy with brown shoes. Not very original I know, but at least we knew what we were looking for and given the popularity of these colour combinations we knew it'd be easy enough to come by what we were after.
We had heaps of our married friends recommend Harrys for Menswear in Dubbo as a supplier so decided that was where we'd shop. I am SO glad we did because picking what the boys was wearing was easy but actually getting them fitted was a whole different story. NONE of the groomsmen live locally. In the lead up to the wedding, two of the groomsmen were overseas, one was up in the Gulf of Carpentaria and the other on the QLD boarder. So if it weren't for the flexibility of the Harrys for Menswear staff the men would have gone naked.
Doug and his groomsmen looked dapper in their dark navy suits, white shirts, grey bowties and pocket squares, brown boots and Happy Socks (yes such a cliché I know).
The bridesmaids on the other hand, not so easy. I experienced so many bipolar moments while trying to organise their outfits. I thought we had it sorted at one point with everyone in different outfits of the same colour but then did a complete turn around to have them all in the exact same thing #bridezilla. I had to learn that boobs really affect how a shirt or dress will fit, clearly I have the smallest boobs in the world and had never really had to think of this.
Wanting to do something a little different we all decided on jumpsuits! How cool is that! Again with the originality we got them from Sheike. They were very easy to get in each size, easy to alter and much more affordable than the backup dress I had picked.
Dresses from Shieke in a gum green colour matched with tan heels and colourful earrings by Lazy Daisy looked a treat on my girls.
My dress was off the shoulder and simple, just as I had always wanted. I thought about buying second hand from Still White but went trying on dresses just for fun anyway and happened to fall in love with a dress and taking it home. My dress was an off the rack Rachel Gilbert 2017 Spring Bridal gown, it was covered in sequins and about 1.2kgs. I loved it!
