This week I'm going down to the coast to attend a wedding. I did the typical girl thing of buying the first dress I saw, ending up sending it back, and then panicking. I trawled the net for weeks afterwards trying to find the perfect dress, trying to decide if I wanted something floaty, tight fitting, red, pink, strapless, with a high neckline etc. etc. I got myself so wound up constantly looking for something I didn't know I wanted, that I ended up searching for advice on what a suitable dress for a wedding is. Nearly every blog, magazine and forum I looked at were focusing on telling me exactly what colours I should and shouldn't wear, something I thought didn't even matter that much!
Obviously the big colour I wouldn't even dare to wear to a wedding is white, but there were some women out there who didn't have a problem wearing it or would just call up the bride and ask. Personally if a woman came to my wedding wearing white I would tell them to go home and change! But then colours I would have thought were acceptable were also deemed not. Nude is too close to white, black is macabre and funeral like and apparently red is vulgar and associated with adultery! So I want to know, what do you think is acceptable to wear to a wedding?
