I'm not a bride-to-be, but one of my best friends is! I was at work today thinking... "gosh, I should really try to find something to wear specifically for the wedding, shouldn't I?" Of course, I'd love to use it for other occasions, but I really like the idea of finding something with the wedding in mind, especially since I'm a bridesmaid!
And since I'm new to BPAL and am not as good at figuring out what would work well in different situations, I thought I'd come as you all.
The wedding is September 12, and it will be outdoors at a fabulous state park here in Wisconsin. Weather could either be hot & humid or cold & rainy -- there's just no telling in the middle of September. The guys are going to be in kilts (or so the groom said last I talked to him), and us bridesmaids have brown dresses. It'll be very very outdoorsy: the idea right now is to have a 'picnic' sort of theme with the reception, and a lot of us are going to be camping there afterwards! I don't want to overwhelm anything with scent, so maybe something subtle? I lean towards things with sandalwood, musk, heavier scents like that, or fruity & citrusy (although I'm not sure how well citrus would work for mid-Sept) or foodie. Earthy tones? I'm sort of leaning towards something earthy, but I really like Swank so something that makes me want to party would be fun, too. Or something SEXY, since there will be single gentlemen in attendance.
Basically, something that seems outdoors-y and autumn-y to you? I just need some ideas and some direction!
