What to wear to a wedding in Paris?
That’s the big question on my mind right now.
I had mentioned in my budget recap that we are going to go to France and England next year for weddings, and while I have the English one down pat…. France poses a bit of a question for me.
I of course, turned to BF to bug him about what women wear to weddings.
FB: What do they wear in Paris? Is it more formal than here? Less?
Wait, what’s your idea of formal because when I went to a beach wedding, people showed up in flip flops and sundresses.
Is that formal? Or beach formal?
What did they wear when you went? Didn’t you bring a camera? Do you have pictures?
Typical boy answer: “Umm.. Women wear …a dress? Not in black or white?”
So I turned to my best friend: Google.
Turns out, they DO NOT dress up for a wedding like they do here in North America unless the couple is some pish posh high society pair… which, the bride and groom are NOT.
Black is apparently OK but white is NO-KAY. But since I don’t really wear anything black, I’m safe.
And they also have two outfits — one for the day, a more casual one for the evening. *salivates*
I wish I had some pictures of French weddings that people have been to, but barring that, I am thinking along the lines of not having to purchase ANYTHING for the wedding we’re attending next year.
So, I don’t need to buy a tight satin cocktail dress with bling all over the place?
I mean, I won’t show up in this $30 Target dress (which I looove btw)
… maybe I’ll just buy a pair of cute bronze or pink sandals to match the dress And I’ll switch into a wrap dress if I have to, for the evening so that I don’t freeze my butt off if it happens to be cold.
