Slight twist on "What to wear to a wedding" - Page 2

post #16 of 45
Fabienne -

I would ask specifically if your son is invited. People (OK - my mother-in-law) told my wife and I that we shouldn't allow children at our wedding, but my I consider my friend's children to be a big part of who they are - and I insisted that the children be allowed to attend. Maybe it's just because I like kids, but I love it at weddings when the little kids are all out on the dance floor - and I've seen some really cute scenes where the bride and bridesmaids are dancing with multiple children.

As to the shawl - I see no reason why white can't be used as an accent color. It just shouldn't be the main theme of your outfit.

Easy: if the kids aren't invited specifically, don't bring them.

My distant, distant, cousin showed up at my wedding, uninvited, with spouse and three kids.

It was okay, though, because they did drop a $5 bill into a card for us, apparently to help defray the cost.

LOL - boy, Mr. Checks, I understand what you are saying completly. I am looking back a 7 years, I guess I will remember this with the same type of force when I have kids going off to college.


of course, now I love kids, but the money issue made me so uptight at my wedding, that I really was concerned about unexpected numbers.



about the shawl, Fab - here is what my wife said "a good family would consider it tacky to wear white in Bogata" - that doesn't mean that they would frown on your wearing a white shawl, just that they wouldn't do it themselves there. you can consider it sort of like a trad rule - nice to know about, but not something that you need to follow. and you can bet something valuable to you that a good famly in bogata and a good family in medillin probrably both look down at each others way of doing things - such is life.

good luck

Your cousin's not named Eddie by any chance, is he?

Any strong opinion on the décolleté of the green dress, flattering or not?

Well, I like it, but I also recommended it...

I honestly don't know.

He is from Louisiana, that much I do know. (I come from a very, very large family)

No further explanation necessary. I have acquaintances there who would've shown up with all seventeen of their kids. You should be happy he only brought three and "the little missus".

I think that it depends on what you are built like. As long as you are slim it is very nice.

My avatar is half of me. Yes, I'm slender. But my question was specifically about that kind of swooping neckline, is that flattering, as opposed to, say, a V-neck, etc.

I guess what I meant to say was that as long as you are not overly busty, I think the neckline would be a very nice look.

Oh, I see, sorry, I must be a little dense today.

It's easy to dress for weddings when you're Isabella Blow or my personal favorite Anna Piaggi: At her lightbox Cape by Angela and Giovanni Grimoldi and dress by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, which was a facsimile of her book, "Fashion Algebra."

Fabienne -

Remembering what you looked like in the jeans pictures (pre-crash) I would say that you will look great in the green dress. Very flattering and yes, I like the neckline.

I agree, that dress is very nice. And I'd say that price is a steal, too. Any pictures of the suit you were thinking of before?
