The Knight and I have five weddings coming up soon. I thought we were out of the wedding woods (being old marrieds ourselves - five years, baby!), but then, up goes another few couples who are *in love* and get all married and stuff.
Suckers. Who would want to do such a thing? :0)
Anywhoodies, three of the aforementioned five weddings are black tie optional. For me, this term conjures up nostalgic images of dapper gents in tuxes and lovely ladies in floor length gowns, but I have this sinking suspicion that while the tuxes may still reign supreme, floor-length ball gowns are not so much.
Which is sad really. Where else am I supposed to wear some of my beautiful (and I'm not being sarcastic) bridesmaid dresses to?
This dress was my favorite bridesmaid dress of all...and it is just sitting in my closet watching me get fatter and fatter.
And because I luff her so, here is a close-up of me with my best friend and the beautiful bride-to-be-back-then, Heavens to Betsy. Love you, darling! Can't believe that its been two years, already!
So, the point of this increasingly longish post is....what am I supposed to wear to a black tie optional wedding?
Please advise, and soonish, if you don't mind. This girl needs to go shopping -- pronto!
