I’m not sure why anyone would have to be a whole new wardrobe for a marriage unless you were moving to a polar opposite climate, or from the city to the country or vice versa.

What is your reason?

Whoa! Never heard of that! What culture does that come from?

I think that’s kinda cool. I want some new clothes ๐Ÿ™‚

All my best ladies bought me new ‘outfits’ for the honeymoon. ๐Ÿ™‚ My wardobe in the night time department is set.

I have never heard of that either.

I would start with the basics (black pants and skirt, sweater, white top, layering T’s etc) and then you can buy cheap accessories to make them fun and dress them up until you can expand your warddrobe. Like statement necklaces, scarves, belts etc. Kohls has some great stuff on sale all the time for real cheap.

WOW, I’ve never heard of that either.  I think i’d go insane if I had to do that.  I suck at shopping and buy like 1 piece maaybe every 4-5 shopping trips I make.

Maybe just take note of what you already have and wear most often, and literally look at it as replacing those things? Break it down by colors or fabrics? Or break it down by season? I think that might be a good place to start. Good luck and have fun with it! ๐Ÿ™‚

What a cool tradition!  Sorry I don’t have any pointers — I never had to do this myself, lol ๐Ÿ™‚

@al1988: What stress/fun. Lol. I’d recommend going for some ‘base pieces’ like others suggested. A few basic staples like skirts that can be work/fun/night out depending on how you pair them. Same for a few shirts/dresses/pants. Don’t forget things to layer or to accessorize, that’ll help make your wardrobe seem huge because you’ll have a lot of different combinations to wear.

Sounds like a nice culture. I’m just trying to transition mine from college kid to grown-up in the workplace who still dresses cute.

While I would love to get a few new things, I wouldn’t want to throw out the stuff I have now.  I love most of my clothes. The perfect pair of jeans is so hard to find.  And I have those tops and dresses that I practically live in.  And don’t even get me started on my shoes.  I’m so attached….
