FI's aunt is getting married. We got the invitation in the mail last week and, at the bottom of the invite, it said that it would be a New Orleans Saints theme (in memory of her son who died last summer at age 21; and the Saints were his favorite team).
Now, last year, another one of FI's aunts got married in a New York Giants themed wedding, because her husband eats, sleeps and breathes the Giants. Their inviations said that Giants attire "is desired but not required".
FI's mother and I were chit chatting yesterday and I mentioned I'd have to get a new dress to wear to the wedding, since my only black dress is long and too heavy for summer, and I don't own any gold (to go with the Saints colors). FI's mom said, "I don't think she expected people to wear the colors, they're not really for summer. Just wear whatever."
But why bother addressing the theme of the wedding if the couple didn't want their guests to wear the appropriate colors? Does anyone else have an opinion on this? Anyone else been to some themed weddings that dictated what you wore? I think it's kind of fun, TBH.
PS: I got a new dess anyway - it was $15 marked down from $60 at Kohl's! It's light and flowy and great for a nighttime wedding in the summer! It's a little too big in the bust, but as long as I wear a black bra it doesn't really matter.
