One of the partners I work for is getting married in a few months. He is subtly subverting the wedding paradigm by having a groomslady (also a partner I work for). She has her groomslady dress, but he doesn’t know what he is wearing yet. He asked me what Husband wore at our wedding. This is the first time I’ve been asked that question! Even though a million people before and after the wedding asked me to describe my dress (long, white). I told him that Husband wore a sand-colored suit from J. Crew. His quizzical look made me feel the need to follow up (don’t you hate that?): our wedding was casual. Heh. Only in wedding fantasyland is a suit considered casual.*
*I suppose there are also other events at which a suit might be inappropriately casual. The term black tie probably means more than just that. These are not, however, events that play a significant role in our lives.**
**Is it nonsense to put an asterisk at end of the last sentence in a post? Does it change the way you read the asterisked items?
