As a wedding guest (and someone who despises dresses) what the hell do I wear to a wedding? I’m completely baffled.
It’s not like I’ve never been to a wedding, but literally, every time I go to one, I have this same conundrum.
Devon and I have our friends’, Harold and Mandi’s wedding to go to Thanksgiving weekend. (Yes, the Saturday after Thanksgiving.) . Harold and Mandi got engaged a couple of months after Devon and I did and they’ve actually been together longer than Devon and I have. Harold is one of Devon’s groomsmen and, of course, Devon will be one of Harold’s groomsmen at his wedding in a few weeks.
So, Devon doesn’t have to deal with what to wear. He has his tux order done (and is actually picking it up next week) and he’s good to go.
Also, yes, my “date” (can I really call him that anymore) will be in a tux. THAT JUST ADDS TO MY ISSUES! He never wears suits/tuxes/ties, so I don’t feel like I have to be super dressy either. But since he’s in a tux, do I have to wear a dress?
This is too much pressure.
So, I’m trying to think of options because I have a good chunk of the day on Saturday to go shopping and maybe try to figure this life out. Devon has Harold’s bachelor party to contend with on Saturday so I can have the day to myself to try things on, shop, etc. I’m going to lay out my options here and you guys are welcome to give me any feedback you want or suggestions because….I’m not good at this.
For background, it’s a November wedding (obviously) and at 7pm, not black tie (in any way), so coming a little more “casual” would not be any sort of faux pas or offend anyone.
