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)

We kind of did the same thing. We rented a ranch for a weekend, flew in anyone that wanted to come, told all the children in attendance that they were bridesmaids and ringbearers and whatever, to wear whatever they wanted, and we just had a great weekend.

My dd(then 7) wanted to wear one of her *fancy* dresses to my *brother's* wedding. He didn't care, thought it was sweet, but his (now) wife didn't want her to upstage the flower girl, so we compromised. Dd wore her dress to the rehearsal and dinner the night before, then she wore a *simple* dress to the wedding.

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

I think weddings are a bigger deal to some women than others. Marriage isn't a sacrament in my faith, so the wedding itself was just a means to an end. I think I spent about a week planning it.

It's a nice neutral color.  My mom's dress was a teal color with rhinestones around the neckline, It was so pretty on her.

Flat.

<<2. Coke or Pepsi?>>

Iced Tea.  Weren't you talking bad about soda in the other thread?

<<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)>>

None, I would suggest not wearing a black dress to a wedding.

Spending all of a week to plan a wedding is less traditional than I am used to.

<<Are you actually posting while on vacation? lol>>

Some of the comments can be quite funny (intended or not) and can be amusing on long drives.

Well, mine didn't take long to plan. A venue, a meal, transportation, something to wear, flowers, a preacher to get the thing done, the end. My goals with the wedding: Evwrybody that comes, ages 18 months to 85 years able to have a good time, and my husband and me married at the end of it. From everything I can tell, both requirements were satisfied.
