Wedding Question Wednesday ~ What to Wear?

Our question today comes from Stephanie, a loyal reader and supporter of KDC Events:

"I have always been told you should not wear certain colors to weddings:
Black is Bad luck
White is the brides color
Red takes away from the bride (and may suggest a fling with the groom..ahem)

The last wedding I attended a lot of people were wearing all those colors, has this changed?
Thanks, Steph"

Very interesting question Stephanie. It seems that with weddings today, all sorts of traditions and stipulations have been throwen right out the window! For instance, Brides are not even wearing white anymore! There are a plethoria of colors that bridal dresses are coming in.

We here at KDC Events feel that you should wear what you feel comfortable in. You should dress appropriatly for the event. If it is an outside wedding, and weather is cooler, please don't show up in a strappy spring colored dress. The point is, your attire should be condusive to the event (time, theme, location etc.)

So, if you want to wear black, by all means, do so. We found this great article on About.com. Check it out!

Here is a recent photo from my cousins wedding (feb 16, 2008)
NOTE: we are ALL wearing black!

My Cousin's Wedding

I attended my cousin David's wedding on Saturday. It was beautiful. His Bride thought of everything, down to the detail. I thought I would share my two favorite things from the wedding (of course they are decorating related).

First, I absolutely loved they way they displayed the table cards! It was done so elegantly. They had some branches that they painted and put in a huge vase. They hung the cards from the branches like tree decorations! Super cute! Here is a picture:

The second thing I thought was totally awesome was the candy bar. This is what they had as their give away. The color theme from the wedding was Tiffany blue with campaign and black, and they found candy to match! They took many huge vases again and decorated them with ribbon and filled them to the brim with CANDY!!! There were baggies and scoops to help your self. They had everything from Tiffany blue rock candy to sugar rolled marshmallows. SUPER CUTE! Here is a pic:

Over all, the entire wedding was great! Just thought I would share these two different, but elegant ideas!

Wednesday Wedding Question

So we are going to start a new series...Wednesday Wedding Questions! Just send in your wedding related questions. Whether it is engagement, shower, dress, ceremony, gift etc. related, BRING IT ON!!! Let us help you.

Our first question comes from Elana from Good Girl Gone Shopping:
"I am a little confused; does a bridal shower mean that you buy a cute, sexy gift for bride? Or, do we just use the registry and give her the wedding gift then? It is so confusing!!!! ;)"

Well Elana, the shower gift is completely separate form the wedding gift. The type of gift you decide to give solely depends on the Bride and the type of shower. Some showers can be theme oriented (think naughty lingerie shower, or honeymoon destination shower). If they are theme oriented, you would like to comply with that and stick to something related to it.

If it is not themed, then a nice gift of your choice or off the registry is fine. Typically wedding showers are looked upon to "shower" the bride or couple and help prepare them for marriage. So if it’s nice (or naughty) lingerie, or a handy dandy coffee pot, either will help equip the new couple with the necessary tools to begin their marriage. But remember, the shower gift IS separate form the wedding gift!

We hope this helps, have fun!
