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)

Usually the bride is excited about the color schemes and things and talks about it at the showers. That's how I usually find out. Sometimes you get a hint with the invitations. More and more invitations are incorporating a little color.

I agree with you that most women go somewhere to purchase a dress than have one made.  Mine was made, The woman was friend's with my aunt and she made both my dress and my mom's.  She also altered the dresses I found for my bridesmaids.  I never knew strapless was so in until it was brought up here.  I don't see a lot of brides copy the dress style like what Middleton wore either and that's kind of strange considering that Diana's style did start a trend back when.

"Do you know every color scheme to every wedding you are invited to?" Well, no. But since I don't go to weddings of people that I am not actually close to, I usually know the color scheme of the weddings I attend.

How? You ask them? I am close to many couples I have gone to, some even family...Surprised that I didn't know the color scheme. I would never think to ask to coordinate my outfit to the wedding. The only color I will not wear is white.

Oh ducky, But black can be a very flattering color on some bodies.

"Do you know every color scheme" --------- I doubt anyone does. In this case, you already said that you were quite certain it would be black/white, so this particular time, you do apparently know ahead of time, and you are planning to wear black.

Yep as I find nothing wrong with wearing black to a wedding and my dress looks NOTHING like a bridesmaids dress lololol.

I don't agree, I think color scheme is brought up with friends and family sometime before the big day.  But that goes back to how much time people actually spend planning I guess, Lol.

Nope, no hint with this invite. It is a very neutral invite, as well as my own and my color scheme was red. And yes, there was one or two red dresses worn, lots of black though as it was a night wedding. I never spoke about my colors for the wedding at my shower as no one asked. Never heard of not wearing the same color as the bridemaids. Now if you wore the same color and same dress....then I can see something wrong....lol

My grandmother wanted me to go to Kleinfeld's (which was in Brooklyn at that time). It would have been too much of a pain to keep going back and forth so we picked a bridal salon closer to our home.

Most people, IME don't ask, ever. I usually don't. I never thought it would make a difference what color I chose to wear. lol
