Groom Style #12: No tie necessary

I was so excited to receive an e-mail from a lovely bride, Lindsay. Her wedding will be held in beautiful, central Oregon. She is hand-making all 120 napkins and cloth centerpieces from Amy Butler and Joel Dewberry fabrics (Yes!). All of her salt and pepper shakers are vintage (think owls, Marilyn Monroe, etc.) Basically, I'm already obsessed with Lindsay's wedding and I can't wait to see the photos!

Lindsay mentioned that she will be wearing this GORGEOUS ruffled dress from Thread Design. Her groom's style is fairly casual (he likes outdoor gear and snowshoes). So, I chose a neutral toned, organic suit from John Lewis - it's breathable and beautiful. I also LOVE the laid back feeling of this Get Blake shirt! The yellow and neutral tones are not too bright, so it won't compete with the decor of wedding. The wedding band with wood inlay has such an organic vibe to it as well. Finally, the outfit would not be complete without shoes! I chose a pair of brown slip-ons that the groom could wear at the ceremony. Then, he could kick-back with a pair of green, canvas shoes from Lacoste.

Inspiration? Stella Dress from Thread Design
