I really want to wrap my braided hair around my head and have a flower crown, but I really don’t want to upstage the bride!
The struggle, ladies, the struggle!
The invitation also says, “casual.” What does that even mean?April 18, 2017 at 7:36 pm #682512
It means whimsical, haha. I do think you can do braids, and some kind of hair decoration. Like yeah, a full-on Coachella crown might be too… vivid, but how about something delicate?
If you know how to French braid pretty decently, hairromance.com has a tutorial for a crown braid that’s really pretty. I’ve done it.
You could get away with some gothic bohemian leaves in that.April 18, 2017 at 8:38 pm #682516
I wish I could do that. I’m going to outsource to a professional.April 19, 2017 at 4:50 am #682562
Oh, even better! They can do something with face-framing wisps, and arrange your leaves, twigs, and vines in it perfectly so you look like an ethereal little wood sprite!April 19, 2017 at 6:42 am #682569

Personally, I wouldn’t care less about what color someone wore to my wedding. I would think it was weird if someone wore an actual wedding dress, but my idea is that as long as they were not creating problems and trying to sabotage the event, I would think if people judged them, that would be on them and not me.April 19, 2017 at 2:33 pm #682636
That dress is fine to wear as it is not plain white.Buy it and enjoy.April 19, 2017 at 2:51 pm #682639
I wouldn’t have cared if someone wore white to my wedding (actually I think someone did? but I can’t remember).April 19, 2017 at 3:00 pm #682640
Ok, I am probably the last person who should give fashion-etiquette advice, but I don’t see the problem with the dress you’ve chosen. With the floral pattern and more cream-than-white background, I wouldn’t put that in the category of dresses-that-must-be-avoided. The dresses on this page however…these are what I think of when I think of wedding faux-pas. http://shop.nordstrom.com/c/womens-little-white-dressesApril 19, 2017 at 4:00 pm #682653
Sara, it’s not just you, I thought I was crazy when I saw everyone saying “no” because I in no way considered the original dress a “white dress” that you shouldn’t wear to a wedding. I mean, it’s got big a big blue flower pattern all over it! What’s the problem?
