Stylish advice

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

It is the most important day of your life, and you are the star. But make sure your attendants look great, too.

• Choose different styles of bridesmaids’ dresses in the same colors, or select varying colors in a consistent style.

• Dress junior bridesmaids (ages 9-13) in youthful versions of the bridesmaids’ dresses, or in a different shade (for example, use pink to match burgundy).

• Take your ring bearer to a tux shop for his own fitting.

• For the gents, choose sophisticated suits. No bold patterns, no light blue or rust-red suits, and nothing made of velvet (please).

• Men, don’t wear a cummerbund. They’re traditional, but they tend to look messy; plus, they may translate to “high school prom” instead of “sophisticated wedding party.”

• Order two boutonnieres for the groom, in case the first one wilts. A boutonniere has a shorter life span than a bouquet.
