Wedding Attire 101

June 15, 2010

I spent this past weekend in Philadelphia for a friend’s wedding. I was inspired by the diverse way people dressed for the wedding, so, of course, I had to blog about it for you all.
:) Men: Tuxedos: Tie or Bow tie?
I personally have this thing for men in ties. Plus, I can’t help but think of Tucker Carlson when I think of bow ties. DJ Blue Steel, however, is a classic kind of guy and he wanted to wear a bow tie. (Side note: Thanks for wearing the tie for me even though you didn’t want to, DJBS). We decided to make it interesting and see how many guests were rocking ties and how many were sporting bow ties. (Side Note #2: In case you were wondering, nobody was wearing a bolo.
Our unofficial calculation was about 50/50, with a margin of error of plus or minus 5 gin and tonics. So the debate raged on. I sought out a trusted opinion from my good and very fashionable friend, Mickey, who said, “Men like to feel like James Bond and the bow tie gives you a manly persona.” So, begrudgingly, I conceded a close victory to DJBS and his bow ties -- as long as they’re not polka dotted...
Women: Long or Short Dress?
When it comes to weddings, being comfortable is key. Between the dancing, mingling and being on your feet for hours, you need a dress that will take you all the way through what promises to be a long night. Long dresses are becoming a stylish summer trend and look chic and youthful with their fun and bright prints. If you want to dress on the safe side, short dresses are great for any occasion because they are ultra chic, lightweight and add the perfect hint of sexiness.
