It was a hard decision on color because of course I want to compliment his Dress Blues but I also wanted to be slightly different. His sister did say that everyone usually sticks to Red, Navy, and Black but we both agreed that this silver was absolutely stunning! And with the beading against a dark dress, I thought it would be "too much" and I didn't want to stick out like a sore thumb. I opted for silver because it wasn't too out there, it was different, but not to the point where I think his higher-ups and there wives will look down upon me for, so I hope that I made a good decision. I am super excited now and nervous at the same time.I have some planning to do as well.
It will be held at the Hilton Marriott Resort & Spa in Hilton Head, South Carolina which is awesome because it's right along the Ocean which means great photo opportunities! I want to get my hair and make-up done and to have our photos taken outside as well so that's on my list of things to find in that area.
We have a choice from red nails, a french tip, or a sheer cream or nude and right now I am opting for red. I plan on wearing my hair down with Old Hollywood Curls/Pin curls, simple eye make-up and a red lip. For my clutch and shoes, I was considering black apart from wearing silver earrings because I don't want to have all silver and look too shiny. I need a good Red lipstick that will last all night so I don't have to primp as much, I do love my Revlon lipsticks, but I want something less creamy so it doesn't transfer.
If anyone has any suggestions on how I should complete my look (i.e hair, make-up shoes and accessories) I would LOVE to hear what you think.
