@tootsweet:  My wedding will be semi-formal and I think that dress is perfect! For the super formal one I would go with a floor length dress like some of these that are simple and easily used again and again. DB has a lot under “special occassions”

@tootsweet:  If they are keeping it a secret they can hardly get cranky with anyone for wearing their colours! (I wouldnt’ care if someone wore my wedding colours anyway)

@tootsweet:  So funny. After my grandmother showed my sister the dress she was thinking of wearing to her wedding (short), my sister let it slip that she’d be the only grandmother in a short dress (black tie wedding). She then went out and bought a long dress in dark purple; yup, the bridesmaids were wearing dark purple gowns (it wasn’t a secret, either). Of course she just had to say “don’t I look just like a bridesmaid?” Nope, she just looked foolish (and she wasn’t in any of the bridal party photos).

@tootsweet:  Wear whatever you want, what makes you comfortable. The bride and groom should be more interested in you attending than what you wear. I mean that is the thing that I remember about my wedding, all the people who came and certainly not what they were wearing.

Wear something that you believe you look good in, that you can dance in, and that is fancy enough that you wouldn’t want to wear it to work. Don’t wear white. Don’t dress like a slob. Now is not the occasion to “dress up” a pair of skinny jeans.

If they are keeping it a secret, then you are off the hook for worrying about wearing “their” color.  Just don’t wear white (and I wouldn’t wear black unless it a very fancy cocktail type affair). 

 

As an aside, to someone who has done this (kept the color as a secret) – WHY??? I really am curious.
