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)

Back pedaling? Gave you been paying attention when Lauren described her wedding? Did you get the idea it was even remotely close to the happiest day of her life?

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.

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

Seriously? Nice backpedaling.

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.

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

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.

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

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?
