As far as style goes, I dig our Mystic Blue with red or blush. But I would not hesitate to rock ANY of our Black collection with blush or light pink. Either way, be sure to have a pocket of candy conversation hearts. Be cheesy all day with your bride and surprise her. Randomly placing a “Hubba Hubba” or “Be Mine” in her hand will make for fun memories.” – Nathan Bellah, Director of Marketing at Generation Tux
