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)

Is 31 old? That's the age of the bride at the wedding I attended. In any case, I think often the bridesmaids dresses off the rack have no sleeves, but it's a very easy alteration in most cases to add them.

No, I was really speaking of maybe someone in their late 30's +. Maybe married once before.

I would make it a point to try not to wear the same color as the bridal party.

At the wedding I attended this spring neither the bride nor the bridesmaids had strapless dresses. Actually, the bridesmaid's dresses just had one "strap" over the right shoulder. They were really very pretty.

That sounds nice Laughing

Yep, And black is as neutral of a color as a beige is spring. I think the poster that questioned your choice dress was just creating an argument where there isn't one.

Yep, I think so too as it really makes no sense at all. I wouldn't wear white, cream, light pink or beige to a wedding (anything that would close to the bride's color of dress) but would never hesitate to wear anything else.

We are definitely moving into a new era of weddings. It used to be my friends...now it's their kids!

How old are their children? I think the oldest child of my friends is 21/22.

Showers can be spent talking food and gifts too, the weather or what you do for a living or any number of things...

Yep. I have been to a ton of showers (and weddings) and couldn't tell you if they had the color scheme at the shower (I know we did not at my sister's) or even what color the bridemaids wore at the wedding. I am not sure if the bride is supposed to be mad if you wear the same color? I could care less if every woman wore red at my wedding as long as we were all there to celebrate our marriage Laughing
