These customary roles are being reversed more and more lately. But what is the proper etiquette as far as what the Best Woman or Man of Honor should wear? According to Emily Post's Wedding Etiquette, the solution is quite simple. A male honor attendant should wear the same attire as the groom and groomsmen. A woman may wear a dress in the same color family as the bridesmaids', or she can choose a dress in black, gray or whatever the primary color worn by the groomsmen. Her attire should be within the formality of the wedding, but she wouldn't wear a tux or dress like the groomsmen. A man would wear a boutonniere, and woman would usually wear a corsage featuring the same flowers as in the groomsmen's boutonnieres.
Planning a wedding is an awesome experience...or it should be. Your wedding should not stress you out to the point where you just want it all to be over. I found an interesting article on Project Wedding that might save you a headache and give some guidance regarding etiquette.
As I was reading the Spring 2011 issue of GetMarried Magazine, I came across the cutest idea, Couple Cards. After you get engaged you will meet with a number vendors and instead of scribbling your info on a piece of paper, you can hand them your couple card. This couple card will have you phone number, email address and possibly a picture of the soon to be husband and wife. These cards can also be used after the wedding, just slip them to friends and family to encourage everyone to stay in contact.There is a wide selection of themes and colors available at the GetMarried Shops.
Here are a few designs we liked:
