I'm mostly just looking for ideas, or advice, based on experiences other posters have had in the past.
I'm officiating a ceremony in Puerto Rico this summer. I was asked to do this because I introduced the HC, and after talking to them about what they want, I feel pretty comfortable. The ceremony is going to be a handfasting.
The ceremony will be on the beach around sunset with a dinner reception afterwards. The HC has said they are shooting for "vintage nautical," and the bridesmaids are wearing fuschia (not sure how that fits but not my concern!)
I want to wear something non-attention-attracting, because the focus at the front should be on the HC. But the bride wants something that indicates I am part of the wedding party. I had the following ideas:
Pale blue dress with sash that matches bridesmaids
Pale gray dress with same sash
Same dresses as above, but with flowers behind ear/in hair that match bridesmaids
That's pretty much where I'm at with ideas. Bride keeps saying whatever makes me happy is fine with her, so I feel like I have lots of leeway!
I'd love to hear ideas!
