We are getting married at a small luxury hotel. Ceremony and reception are there, people who know me are usually aware I can be a bit eccentric when it comes to my attire.
Anyways, I want to wear my grey 3 piece suit with either these: http://www-m.gucci.com/us/styles/155182ESE003109
Or these: http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/gucci-roos-python-bit-loafer/3467005?cm_cat=datafeed&cm_ite=gucci_'roos'_python_bit_loafer:664572_1&cm_pla=shoes:men:slip_on&cm_ven=Google_Product_Ads&mr:referralID=2b0de87b-f3aa-11e2-a969-001b2166c2c0
They are nearly the same, except the color of the leather and the hardware is toned down in the first link, but the second link is the anniversary edition and they have been on my radar for a while. I did order both, and I plan to evaluate and keep the winner, or there's a slight chance I will keep both if they are different enough.
Now I should also say, if they just don't look great with the suit I don't plan to force it out of stubbornness. I do have something like these to fall back on: http://www.lyst.com/shoes/hugo-boss-cloude-moc-toe-oxford-dress-shoes-black/ but I think the pair I have might be a little nicer, same brand though. Basically, my backup shoes are just narrow, dressy black shoes that I've worn a handful of times, still looking new.
It would be with great regret if I do end up just wearing boring black shoes though. I'm a creative person, and I tend to comfortabley bend rules so long as it's tastefully done and not a major faux pas. I'm perfectly fine with leaving half the crowd confused, so long as a smaller segment of the crowd "gets it". Quite a few people I know have said it's a good idea, and they like the pairing, but everything is on order so seeing in-person may play out much different. I just want to know if it will be horribly wrong to wear green python bit loafers with a 3 piece. Also, from what I know the green will look very dark in the lighting at out venue.
Lastly, everything else will be straightforward. Black textured tie, stainless Panerai on a black strap, black belt (haven't bought but will be conservative), white pocket square. It's just the shoes, really the only thing I am hoping to have fun with is the shoes. Looking forward to seeing the responses here, please go easy on me
