Oh my goodness, the jeans to a wedding attitude upsets me sooooooo much!!! Living in the midwest, it seems like people think that they can wear jeans to EVERYTHING and they have no idea how much it upsets some people. I have never understood how  a person can feel right going to a wedding in a pair of jeans, with the exception of a wedding that is strictly casual. Geez people, the only time to wear jeans to a wedding is if you are instructed to.

@beccabelle10: Totally! I wasn’t upset about it, but a couple people wore jeans to mine, and I was in a ballgown, lol. What is it with midwesterners and their lack of dress pants? 😉

@kala_way:  “Bride and Groom shouldn’t see each other day of”

I think it’s the morning of (or before the ceremony) otherwise, it would make for an odd wedding day!

@beccabelle10: Gaah! I know! Here’s hoping some of our guests pull out their fancy black denim and good boots (rather than their ‘S#*! kickers’ as they call them). Ooof.

@indibee: LMAO

The one I was expecting everyone to make a huge deal over was DH and I spending the night before our wedding together. No one said anything and I was glad! We got a chance to relax, go over our vows together, and actually get some sleep. It was nice.

A sixpense?? I heard about wearing a coin minted in the day you were born. Even though I’m mexican i’m looking for a penny since pesos changed in 93 and there’s no chance of finding a coin minted in 89.

@Angelz_love: Buahaha you rock! I heard something about the veil representing virginity and the white dress representing purity. Let’s be honest it’s a hairpiece and a color.

@beccabelle10: Glad to know that it is only acceptable to wear jeans to a strictly casual wedding. My Fiance and his men will all be wearing jeans. I have a great gown and my girls also have awesome dresses. I want my guys to be as comfortable as I am, and since Fiance wears jeans every single day, including when it is over 100 degree’s outside, he might as well wear them on our wedding day, wouldn’t be him otherwise.

@clover32512: After rereading my post, I should have been a little quicker to proof before posting, the strictly casual thing sounds like a jab and was not supposed to come off like that.  I don’t hate people for wearing jeans to a wedding, nor did I mean to make it sounds like jeans minimize the quality of the wedding. I get that for certain themes, settings, venues, or couples jeans just fit in with the day.

 

That being said, I know in my town people have a real problem with dressing for an occasion (think people who wear sweatpants to church…) and they don’t understand that it sometimes comes off like they don’t care about the event because of how they show up.  Right now everyone here is super into crazy, torn up, super distressed jeans and at the last 5 weddings (where the invitation requested formal attire) I’ve seen multiple guests wearing these kinds of jeans.  One guest in particular was wearing acid wash jean shorts so short that the pockets were hanging out. Oh my, Nebraska…
