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.

"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.

"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.

"Because it is always a simple and classy choice." I guess "classy" is a relative term..... I wouldn't wear black to a wedding, nor do I think it's classy to try and fit in with the (presumably) younger bridesmaids.

Huh? This makes absolutely NO sense. What if the bridal party wore blue and I picked a dress that was blue?Does that mean I am trying to "fit in" with the bridesmaids? Do you know every color scheme to every wedding you are invited to? I only know this one because we are close to the couple. The "older" couple whose bridesmaids are in their late 30's and 40's Wink

I've had brides ask me to wear something coordinating, when I've had some sort of role at the reception, but oherwise, I think it's just as tacky for a guest to go dressed as a *second string bride's maid* (love that, lol) as it is for a guest to wear white.

You always know the color scheme of every wedding you go to?

Prior to showing up for the Infamous Pink and Orange Feather Wedding, I was unaware of the color theme and had a nice summery dress I was going to wear.  At the last minute (I mean LAST minute) I bought a new dress--about 3 hours before the wedding--that ws the wedding where I wore the LBD.  Thank God, because the nice summery dress I was planning to wear?  Had HUGE bright orange and pink flowers on it--I would have looked like a second-string bridesmaid if I'd shown up in that thing.

I did end up wearing the dress later that summer and even the bride had to laugh when I told her I almost wore it to her wedding.

What do you mean by "older" in relation to strapless gowns, Spring? Most of the weddings I go to, the brides are in their late 20s and early 30s. The girls who chose the newer styles were both right around 30 in my best guess.

I was thinking over 40. That is nice though that the "younger" crowd are trying other styles out. I like the strapless but I also like other styles, which seem to have disappeared.

Spring, by the way, what do you plan to do bra-wise if you are going to wear spaghetti straps?

Strapless bra. Just like I wear with all my other spaghetti strap and no strap dresses.
