Our next bride and groom, Rosemary and Andrew, are hosting their wedding at Rosemary's parent's Victorian house in Greenwich. I love weddings at home. They are so intimate and so personal. As the bride says, their wedding is "modest" with mainly their closest family and friends in attendance.
Rosemary's fiance, Andrew, is very preppy, naming Ralph Lauren, JCrew, and Vineyard Vines as some of his favorite stores. So, what will he wear?
I chose a navy blazer (with brass buttons) and khaki slacks as the foundation pieces - quintessentially New England. Because the wedding colors are olive green, pale yellow, beige and white, I found the most perfect tie and bow tie for the occasion. I love the classic and clean style of the tie. The tie reminds of a creamsicle! The seersucker bow tie is equally amazing with faded green, yellow and red as its main colors. Love it. The Vineyard Vines belt is double-sided, perfect for a no-nonsense dresser. This particular belt has a leather face and a green/lobster face. Totally preppy. All Andrew has to do is add their wedding colors to his socks! While I'm absolutely certain that the wedding will be sunny and beautiful, I found a green tartan umbrella for their wedding...Just in case. After all, it is New England! A preppy look is not complete without something monogrammed, so I found cuff links in Andrew's initials! My favorite piece? The Fritts Rosenow boutonniere, of course! It's one part nautical, one part preppy - totally cool. Finally, for the day-after brunch, Andrew can relax in his Vineyard Vines flip flops.
Come back tomorrow for Rosemary and Andrew's third option!
