I always wear a long "gown" and my husband a dark suit. I'm prejudiced I guess but think we look good! ! The only time we had a problem, I was wearing a red gown and turned around to see him starting to put on a mauve tie!! !!
as long as the gown looks good, fits well and you feel good in it, you will be fine, on a side note - the trend seems to be away from ballgowns and towards more tailored, sleeker, fitted, column, sheath and a-line type styles, its up to you. You and DH will look smashing!
If your dh (dear husband) wore the dress and you wore the suit then you might look a little odd (unless he has really great legs) but the other way round you will look just wonderful. Get lots of photos taken and when you see them you'll think - gee-just look at that great looking couple. Have a great cruise and "don't worry -be happy" - ttfn Jennifer
sls...if your husband wears a plain black suit, get a tuxedo shirt and a bow tie and you have a mock tux.
My husband does this and he looks nice and is more comfortable than a regular tuxedo......no cumberbund. He refuses to rent a tux.
Most men's shops that sell tuxedo shirts, throw in the cuff links and black buttons that are needed for the shirt and a bow tie in black or red can be bought for about $5.
The black suit then can be worn another night with a nice shirt and tie.
Just a thought.
