Too shallow...I am not an expert by any means, but if my fiance was going to spend $10,000, he would want a better color as well for that price.

My sister wore a brown dress for my wedding in March - the groomsmen wore brown vests, with a black/brown striped tie.

Love the look!  Thanks!

Hi everyone...I am getting married in September next year and want my bridesmaids to wear chocolate brown.  I like the look, but also know that brown is a color that they will all wear again.  What are your thought on color for the tuxes?  Our wedding ceremony is at 4:00 PM ...

Ideally...yes.  I only want a plain setting for my ering and a plain wedding band.  If it is impossible then we can make adjustments to the budget as necessary.

Hi Kaleigh,

Thanks for the reply.  I have thought about that.  Is the 6 prong better than the 4 or doesn''t it matter?  We have heard different things from jewelers.
