Wedding Catch-Up!

I know that it's not Wedding Wednesday yet, but after Mr. Wonderful and I spent an action-packed weekend plowing through the wedding to do list, I couldn't help but share! We *finally* received the last of the addresses from our guests (and yes, I know it's only 4 months away...good grief this took a long time!), the invitations were safely delivered to Mama Martini's house (*squeal*!), our church-to-reception transportation was booked, and we FINALLY knocked out my current high-priority stress point - the tuxes!

As you may remember, we're throwing a traditional Anglican wedding, with the ceremony beginning at 12 noon. Since a proper tuxedo is wildly inappropriate for that time of day, we opted to go for the most formal dress option gentlemen have during the daytime- the morning suit.

Now I know the morning suit can look a little "costume-like" to some people, with the whole ascot, top hat, and cane situation going on. But never fear ladies, we're only doing this in the most tasteful (and palatable) manner! No ascot, no top hat, and certainly no gloves (it could be in the mid-80's by that point, for goodness' sake!) We'll be replacing the ascot with a tie for Mr. W and his entourage, which will most likely coordinate with the bridesmaids' dresses.

In fact, the gents will look most similar to one of our favorite grooms of all time:

That's right, ladies! You can imagine my excitement when I realized that JFK donned the same morning suit and tie combo that our wedding party will be wearing. I figure that if the Kennedy clan did it, we can't go wrong!

We also settled on the groomsmen's gifts (which I won't disclose, need to keep a little element of surprise here), which we're quite happy with.

Have any of you been to a wedding with morning suits before? I'd love to hear all about it!

Happy Monday!

Have not ever attended a wedding with the morning suits, but if JFK did it, it has to be Awesome :-)

I love morning suits.

I was heavily vetoed on that for our wedding, but I wanted them good looking.

JFK looked so smart & handsome!

We had morning suits (no hats, gloves, canes or other random accessories!) for our wedding, I wasn't sold on the idea as Mr B isn't tall and I wondered how the tails would look, but he looked fabulous! I'll email you a couple of pics.

I think morning suits for weddings must be more common in the UK as they're worn for a lot of weddings here. Your fiancee will look smashing!!

We had a long engagement almost exactly like yours, it was definitely long, but you are so close :) I think the gents will look great! And the trip to see Martha sounded like so much fun, i wish I coud have gone with you, and all the food sounded yummy! Love scones! Can't wait to hear more about the wedding plans, this is such an exciting time!!
