Suit - Chocolate Two button notch lapel tuxedo
Shirt - Ivory Microfibre
Ben's Vest - Diamond Pattern - Champagne and Ivory
Close Up - Look like 'honeycomb'
Ben's Tie - We decided to buy Ben a nice gold tie to match the grooms plain silk ties - the nice soft plain look of these ties will 'tie' them all together!
Groomsmen Vests - Synergy Gold Vest
Groomsmen Ties - We decided to buy them nice plain ties to keep as a gift for being in our wedding, as the ties that came with the vests would have caused too much patterns to be going on, and we thought that the brown and gold complimented each other nicely and would match the colours of the sunflower boutonniere they will be wearing.

THEN when my dad found out our reception would be in the barn he suggested using bandannas and napkins! So I guess my dad could work for Country Living!
So I just ordered and received the bandannas. I got a light Beige colour and a Light brown colour so that we can rotate each colour on the table.
We will either use 'rope/hemp' like string to tie them up - or raffia. Then I would love to stick a sprig of herbs (possibly rosemary or dill) in under the rope for a bit of scent and a nice presentation.
Here are the two 14x14 inch bandannas I chose:
Here is the initial 'example' I saw on Country Living:

Ricker and Angela Vandenhurk (Ben's Cousins) have graciously said they would donate as their gift to us for the wedding their own honey! They have recently purchased and started their of bee hive and it has been producing lots of delicious honey! So it's so exciting to have the honey be 'homemade' and from our family! Thanks so much!!
I'm so happy that our favours won't just be purchased from the store - but also 'handmade!'
