Yes i got a lot of ideas, we chose purple chic.
My dress was the first thing i bought. I went to try some styles on and found the one! It was bought from Brides by Solo in Newmarket and it was a Trudy Lee dress
I had My sister and brothers girlfriend in alfred angelo purple chiffon dresses with Ivory Sash and my daughter and niece in ivory dresses with purple sash
The best man was the grooms brother and the ushers were my brothers. They hired suits and wore black herringbone prince edward.
