I know we are never to tell people what to wear. I agree with this as adults should be able to handle themselves. I would never tell my guests what to wear but I have to just vent for a moment about questions I am getting.
I keep getting questions...what should I wear? My first response is to just say what the wedding party is wearing. Guys in tux girls in cocktail dresses. The same people are now asking again..." are jeans ok?"....Um, technically sure. Our venue has no rules, you will not be turned away but come on, its a freaking wedding. Sunday best would be a safe bet. I always wear a dress to weddings (at very least) its an affair that I think lends itself to being a little dressed up. We are not taking a trip to Target its a wedding.
Oh and I gave all the correct hints, or at least I thought I did. Invites were off white folded panel cards with raised print. They were each addressed with hand calligraphy by a professional and the ceremony is at 6pm.
I have not decided on my response yet but I am sure it will just be something like, whatever you are comfortable in because what else can I say at this point?
Oh and I think part of the "problem" is this is my dad's side. Even though I am almost 30 years old they pretty much still think I fall under his "style". Kinda like well this is Joe's kid, its probably gonna be in a field and she will be in boots and cut off shorts. NOPE. I am my own person and although I love my boots and jeans this is a wedding not a trip to the dance hall. Anyway, I will not let it bug me, I know it will not matter at all but the questions are making me wonder how these people made it to adulthood.
