1. When it is humid, does your hair go flat or frizz up?

2. Coke or Pepsi?

3. What color shoes would you wear with a little black dress to a wedding? (I have an idea of what I am going to wear but looking for more suggestions)

What my mom wore wasn't an order, I didn't tell her what to wear.

Exactly, me too. She picked the color and style of dress.

We planned my wedding for over a year and there were a lot of details we mulled over together which sometimes were spent over a nice brunch/lunch, My whole wedding was lovely from the mass and dinner to what we all wore.

We planned for over 2 years. 

The notion that it really didn't matter what mom or mil wore shakes me up a little b/c it did matter to me. 

True, if it was something really outrageous and not appropriate for the day. My MIL wore the same dress she wore to her dd's wedding 3 years earlier. I didn't care, that was her choice and the dress was fine for the type of wedding we had (same as my SIL's).

Heck, I'd want my own daughter to offer her input on what she'd like me to wear on her special day too if she marries, But that's just me, Lol.  Viva la difference. 

Me too.

Big traditional weddings are just not my thing. I don't even like to go to them unless I am really close to the couple.

Why? Don't you realize that others enjoy this type of thing and wouldn't you want to celebrate their marriage as much as someone who came to your small, non-traditional wedding?

I told my husband this morning we were debating whether black was appropriate for a wedding guest, and he said, "Well, yeah, sure. I mean, if you're Morticia Addams."

What about the bride? I am pretty sure that Lauren wore a black dress to her own wedding....OUCH Foot in Mouth

I've been a bridesmaid in the last four big weddings in my life. I've seen it all. The last wedding I was in, the bride spent three hours mulling over the four choices of lilac/lavender/pale purple for our dresses but decided on a shade that doesn't really exist, so instead of walking away with a perfectly reasonably purple dress off the rack, we had to have our digs custom made by an out of town seamstress, who added two cup sizes to my bodice and put the "cocktail" length about mid-calf, despite going into the dress shop twice for measurements. I've witnessed breakdowns over centerpieces, meltdowns over icing flavor. I threatened to pour a shot of vodka down one bride's throat right before she walked down the aisle.

If I am close to the couple, then yes, I am happy to celebrate with them. If the wedding is of people we don't really know or know only casually, then no, I don't really want to celebrate with them. We send a gift and politely decline.

I don't think Lauren would object to having her wedding compared to a horror show.

Why would you be invited to a wedding of someone you don't really know?

Seriously? Nice backpedaling.

I always wonder that too, Spring. The last invite we got was to the second marriage of the mother of one if DS's high school friends. I've talked to the woman maybe half a dozen times in my life. I rather like her, from what I know of her. I know her daughter because she was the vocalist in DS's high school band. We often get invited to the weddings of colkeague's children, kids I wouldn't know if I saw them on the street.
