On the radio show this morning (I wish I had a link!), they mentioned that wedding coordinators are bringing shawls (scarfs to cover-up for our male audience) so that women can cover their shoulders during the ceremony. Words that were used were “hooker” and “trampy.” Some brides are putting the dress code on the invitation to make clear that they don’t want hooker-style outfits at the ceremony.
I do have to admit, I’ve noticed more women dressed like they’re ready to hit the club. It’s okay for the reception, but I understand if a bride doesn’t want their guests to look like that during the ceremony. And I could see someone say that about me, but I’m also conservative enough to wear a cover-up during the ceremony. It’s a simple solution to me: wear a shawl during the ceremony.
Have you noticed a trend? Are you guilty of it?
