I could really use your help. I've been invited to a dear sorority sister's wedding in Destin, Fla., in April. I am so thrilled to have made the limited friend guestlist for the bride, and I can't wait to be there to join in the festivities.
My sorority sister is Hindu, and this will be a huge gathering over many days. You can read about the Hindu Wedding Celebration here.
I'll arrive on a Thursday in time for the reception, which will be held starting around 6 p.m. I'll be driving in from Mobile and will need to change into a dress prior to the drive.
Then, on a Friday afternoon starting around 1 p.m. is the ceremony.
So, I will need 2 outfits for this wedding. I don't want to show too much skin or stick out like a sore thumb. It would be neat to find a couple dresses that nod to Indian dress and traditions -- silk, brocade, batik, etc., without looking like I am a white girl trying to dress as a Hindu.
I am 5'5" and a size 12ish with a D-cup, so I'll need something that looks good on my figure. Also, it's the middle of April in Destin, which has average high temps of 78 and lows of 51. So, any ideas or suggestions?
