what do I wear?

cindyg1May 23, 2005

Hi everyone,

We will be celebrating our 25th anniversary on June 25th. I'm planning an outdoor picnic/barbeque with friends and family. Invitations have gone out and specifically state that dress is summer picnic casual. But, we will have a small ceremony of some sort (something like a vow renewal but more a celebration of our 25 years together). I'd like to wear something special (not a really formal dress) for this, but haven't figured out what. Suggestions?

How about a pretty sun dress? You could change into slacks later if you want.

I agree with Sweet Pea. Wear a sun dress, or almost any pretty summer dress.

Right, just go shopping and find what looks and feels great on you. Maybe we aren't understanding the question. Do you mean should you wear a veil or a wedding gown? If so, I'd say no. White? Sure, if you want, but any color or print is fine.

I think that if you wear flowers -- corsage, in your hair, on your wrist -- that might give you the "special" you are looking for.

I'm thinking now that I'll wear off white capri's and a matching take..with some sort of lace jacket or duster. I can wear the jacket/duster for the ceremony and just remove it the rest of the time!

What do you think?
