Here's the scoop:

May 3rd wedding (brother-in-law)
5:00 outside garden wedding
6:00 inside dinner reception

Bride wearing ivory and champagne
MOB wearing lavender tea length
MIL wearing pink tea length
Husband is best man in a black tux

That leaves me

I'm 41, is this a little oldish?

Is black out of the question for a Spring wedding?

I want your honest opinions.


I don't know if this is appropriate either but it sure it CUTE!

Is that green? I can't tell on this screen. I think it is pretty, but I do think it is a little oldish for you.

How about a light orange.
That would look nice with your hair.

Janet said...

Yes, it's light sage green ish.

My comment wouldn't post before so if it suddenly appears, don't be surprised that I have commented twice. Here is what I said:
I was going to ask if that was green? I think it looks stylish and sophisticated and sometimes you can't go wrong looking polished like that. If it looks good on you, you will feel comfortable. I wouldn't choose black for spring but can you wear charcoal? That seems to be the most popular new color right now. I see it everywhere. Dillard's and Macy's are both having fantastice mark-downs right now, as much as 75% off. I have found several expensive tops, skirts, and dresses marked down that much. Good brands like Antonio Melani and Gianni Bini and others.

Oh my gosh, Janet, I think you found a winner!!! I love the pink and black and white!!!

The black and white will look formal and the pink will keep you springy and pastel.

Get this one!!!

The second one is a winner! Since it is evening wear black strappy sandals with at least a two inch heel and a black clutch!!

Yesterday I thought I posted about finding something in yellow??...but I LOVE the pick and black!!!!

The pink is just adorable but you run the risk of looking cuter than the bride. Not always a good way to welcome someone into the family...

Okay, I confess I am extremely biased toward anything pink :-)

I saw this exact dress in yellow and navy with a yellow sweater at Macy's today. Weird.

The fabric is cotton-ish and looks quite casual but don't you think I should wear it to church at least?

Laura said...

I like both of them. Can you send the pictures to the MOB and get her thoughts? Otherwise, go with what you'll be most comfy in. You want to have a good time. Comfortable shoes are critical!

The pink and black dress is ADORABLE!! I absolutely love that dress, Janet. The first one is good, but the second has so much more personality.

I think you're at a good age for either, though. I don't think the first one would make you look too old, nor would you look too cutesey in the second.

In the picture, the first one looks whitish. I thought that was a no-no at weddings. (But you say it's green, so I'll believe you.)

I would definitely regret not getting that pink and black dress -- wedding or not. DO IT.

I may have to email you and ask you where you saw it so I can get one, too. Would that be uncouth? You're in Arizona and I'm in Alabama, so we wouldn't end up at the same place wearing our dresses. :P Hee hee.

Janet said...

Hi Ruthanne, both are from Coldwater Creek. They have a great web site and catalogs so if you don't have one near your town you can always get your shopping in online. Yipee.

Not uncouth to ask. Shop away. :)

Actually, I was just kidding... pretty much. : )

I had a feeling they were from CC because I remember you saying that is your fave and I recognize the flowy, mannequin-less photography.

Trivia: We are friends with the owners of a company in Atlanta who did some of CC's early catalogs.

We have a Coldwater Creek in Birmingham. : )

I know you'll look great in whatever you wear to the wedding, Janet, especially because you have such a big, wonderful smile.
