- Wedding: August 2009
I’m searching for a gown for my hubby’s and my wedding celebration we are doing in his home country. We already had our main wedding over here in the US in August, and are heading over there for this wedding after party in May. I have no control over the festivities over there, except for what I wear. It looks my Mother-In-Law booked a huge banquet hall with a fog/snow/confetti/sparkler machine for their closest 300 friends and family. This is not really my taste, but I am game for anything, since this is his family’s tradition. 🙂
That said, I was originally thinking that I wanted to wear one of those J.Crew wedding gowns. I wanted something that looks more like a “reception” dress and a destination dress than a formal wedding dress since I already got married over here. However, I don’t know if that would end up looking too informal in this huge banquet hall with strobe lights…lol. To make it more confusing, my Mother-In-Law is getting a custom made, floor length beaded gown for this, and DH immediate female cousins will all be wearing floor length evening gowns. However, the other 285 guests there could be wearing anything from “Sunday Best” to their jeans!
What do you think? If I wear a simple and classic J.Crew dress, will it not be formal enough for this? I’m just so very lost…
