With all this talk of summer, I have to ask a vital question... what the heck do you wear to a summer wedding?
This Buzz girl is invited, along with a cute boy, to her cousin's summer wedding. Here's the quandry: It's a summer *afternoon* wedding and yet it's at a freaking castle. My brother, an usher, will be in a kilt for goodness sake! So this is straddling the line between informal and over-the-top formality. Did I mention it's at a castle?
So, I've read many different things on wedding guest advice sites... like don't wear black to an afternoon wedding. Don't wear white or red dresses. Wear a nice business casual outfit with a flowery pastel skirt. And none of this helps -- I mean, ugh! I so don't do flowery pastel anything. Wait -- except for my fun cowgirl dress from Urban Outfitters which is admittedly too casual for a wedding.
See I desperately need Buzz Blog reader help! What's your favorite dress-up outfit for summer events? And to really inform me -- list your favorite:
A) Afternoon wedding at a freaking castle outfit
B) Summer barbecue outfit
C) Summer chic night on the town outfit
Also, what have you heard NOT to do as far as wedding outfits? I don't want to be a fashion don't.
And OMG, I almost forgot -- what do I do about the bouquet toss if I'm there with a cute date? Yikes! Help!!! That is almost an even bigger problem then the dress... *sigh*
This Buzz Girl awaits your sage replies...
