We're being married in the middle of the Negev, in a nature reserve on a progressive religious kibbutz. It will be quite hot and Israeli weddings tend to be a little more laid-back anyway so we're really not aiming for a formal wedding (though Lea will have her white dress and veil :) ). I'm kind of hoping to have barbeque for our wedding dinner.
With this in mind, I've been looking around at what I'm going to wear. I initially considered a lightweight suit in linen perhaps but really, I'm not going to feel comfortable in a suit. However, I don't want to just wear a normal shirt and chinos - I wouldn't feel wedding-y enough.
An additional consideration is that I'm short and fat (5'6" tall and 45" waist) and struggle to find clothes that fit and don't look out of proportion. My beautiful bride is only 4'11". I'm slightly worried we're going to look like wedding weebles (they wobble but they don't fall down !).
I found this website - http://www.islandimporter.com/custom-orders.htm
. They do custom orders in a huge variety of colours, in linen, raw silk and cotton. Our colours are sort of natural leafy colours - greens, browns, neutrals.
So, what are your thoughts on a shirt and drawstring trousers, perhaps in linen ? Not sure what colour though ... Would this seem dressy enough next to Lea's medieval-ish frock ? I'll also have a tallit and kippah on for the ceremony, cream and gold probably.
