My friend is invited to a black tie wedding.
She knows I'm a wedding etiquette nazi (I think that's even how she phrased it).
She asked me what they are supposed to wear to that.
Her husband owns a tux so his part is easy. But she was wondering about herself.
I have never actually been to one nor know much about it but that didn't stop me from talking out of my ass as if I did.
They are thrifty folk so I said "does your bridesmaid dress from your sister's wedding still fit?"
She got excited when I suggested this as a possibility.
It's a simple, strapless, floor length, a-line in deep purple, satiny thing.
No silk. No lace. No glitz. Is this actually appropriate or is she going to feel under-dressed?
