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 had friends that got married Halloween weekend, My DH was in the wedding and the colors were real dark, lots of black and orange.  And wait..  Wasn't black a popular trend color for wedding parties a while ago?  How very Morticia.....  Lol!

Uhm, No, big traditional weddings aren't about inviting every tom, dick and harry. A point my mother made that really made sense about wedding company was that you can have a "party" anytime but that your invitation list should be limited to only those most intimate and close to you. We had probably 200 guests, Most were family but many were close friends that are still friends today.

Too many guests and you run the risk of this:

I hated that black and white wedding trend. I'll be glad when its over. I want to personally thank Kate Middleton for not choosing a strapless gown, too. While the look is lovely on willowy young women, inevitably there is a member of the bridal party who can't quite carry off the look, whether it is because there is too much flesh or too many badly-placed tattoos or both.

Did you get the idea it was even remotely close to the happiest day of her life?

Why get married if you are not happy?

I am almost positive that the wedding we are attending this summer is going to be black and white. I think it will look very classy.

If I could I'd upload a pic of my cousin's daughter that wore a striking strapless gown, The color was an ivory and I swear she looks like a model. She looked absolutley gorgeous. Her bridesmaids were in knee topper dresses that were off the shoulder, They all looked good but that's all based on what I saw in pics which were flattering. Lol.

My sister was 7 or 8 months pg and a bridesmaid at my wedding, I worried what she'd look like in the dress but she pulled it off well too.

I think 99.9% of brides and bridesmaids wear strapless. That is the style. I know when I watch "Say Yes to the Dress" and someone is looking for something on the shoulder or sleeves, it is very few pickings. My dh and I were watching GMA the other morning and they were talking about selling your wedding gown for half of what you paid and using this site online. I said I wouldn't get $1 as my dress is out of style with today's brides. No one would wear something like that now.

The latest designer shows showed far fewer strapless gowns than in previous years, but it will take a few years for the style change to trickle down to mass market. I've been to a few weddings since Kate Middleton's without the strapless, so I do think its on the way out. I agree strapless can be gorgeous on the right body.

Were they older brides?
