DH, DS (2 years old) and I are going to a wedding in April. I am useless at putting outfits together so I'm starting to have a look around now for dresses so I don't leave it to the last minute. I will be around 7 months pregnant so looking for something comfortable but stylish.
My question is whether we all should co-ordinate in some way? I love purple so will most likely end up with some sort of purple dress. Do I put DS in a purple of some form shirt and get DH to wear a purple tie or is that all a bit 'trying to hard'.
I always see gorgeous pics of families whose clothes compliment each other but don't necessarily all have the same colour - what is the trick??
I'm not a fan of matchy matchy myself but for a wedding where hopefully we will get some nice family photos I would like to sort of compliment each others outfits, if you know what I mean (obviously as though we didn't put any effort into it at all!)
I like the idea of outfits complimenting but not matching. If your wearing purple get the boys to wear greys/blues or a colour in the same family? We had a family wedding recently and ended up wearing similar colours by accident. We were in blue/purple/black/grey apart from my sister who wore red it really stood out in a bad way in the pics.
