Wedding attire choices
I went shopping at Ross with a couple friends, including one who was looking for a bridesmaid dress for a wedding in a few weeks. She’s one of the groom’s attendants and I’ve taken to calling her a groomslady. They’ve been tasked to select their own attire for the 10 o’clock Sunday morning wedding, and while the bride’s sister bought a lovely dove-gray knee-length dress from the weddings & parties section of JCrew, my friend was hoping to avoid spending $250 when something perfectly appropriate could be found for a tenth of that price. The only requirement was that her dress be a light color.
We were indignant on her behalf. “It’s great that they’re letting you choose your own attire, but don’t they realize it will be hard to find a pastel in October??” She texted the bride for clarification on the expectations; the wife-to-be replied that anything pale is good to go. Email documentation later revealed that my friend had been asked to be a groomslady months ago and had been sent a message with the attendants’ attire guidelines in July, when pale summery colors are plentiful. Guess they did realize it after all…
I wasn’t planning on buying anything and I walked out with two dresses. This one is sophisticated, sleek, has pockets, and is perfect for one of the November wedding events I’ll be attending, as a guest and not a bridesmaid or groomslady.
