When You're the Guest

Fiance and I are going to an out-of-town wedding this weekend. And it's a theme wedding. And it's a 40s theme. My thoughts on this and theme weddings in general are that this will either be 1) cheesy and tacky or 2) just the right mix of details to give a kitschy vibe to the wedding without being over-the-top. I honestly don't think most people have the vision to pull off a themed wedding successfully. I don't think I could do it myself to tell you the truth.

Anyway, the invitation requested that guests try to dress the part and far be it from me to spoil the bride's fun. I started looking for something that would seem like it could have been worn in the forties but that I could still wear later on. I settled on the below Nanette Lepore dress. I think I could easily wear it again for church or to a shower.

One last note on cheesy weddings...I've been to a few and although there were things that I wouldn't have at mine or that I thought were tacky there were a lot of people who REALLY enjoyed themselves at these weddings including the bride and groom. In the end that's all that matters...you, your groom, and your guests enjoying themselves....not the girl in the corner who thinks it's all tacky ;) I'd rather have a flawed and imperfect wedding where people enjoyed themselves then the most perfect, pristine, well executed wedding that people thought lacked warmth and feeling. So if you've always dreamed of a 40s themed wedding....go for it.
