When in charge, ponder... When in trouble, delegate... When in doubt, mumble. Dr. Jim Boren

I've been in mumbling for a long time about the dress I will wear to The Daughter's wedding. Having searched and searched for a nicer alternative, I decided that the navy blue with blazer and matching navy blue hat (needs the ribbon stitching back on) will be more than OK, especially if I wear the new stole at the reception.

What do people think? Is this dress OK
with this blazer

for a civil daytime ceremony?

ETA Squeeeeeee spikereader it arrived this morning. Shall I return it at the writerconuk midimeet?

Just add pearls and it'll be great:)

Thanks, I don't do dresses now I'm retired. I have pearls but I'm going with a blue pendant - makes me feel less old.

Looks just fine to me.

Thank you. Thumbs up from Spike. Can't go wrong then, can I?

I really like navy blue and white, it's a really smart combination, and think this will make a good wedding outfit. Plus you get a chance to show off the pretty lacy stole in the evening.

Glad it's got there OK (no you hadn't signed up for anything with me, but a random comment in someone else's LJ sparked me off). I'm happy to have it back at the Midimeet. Enjoy!

I'm happy to have it back at the Midimeet.
Does that mean you can attend this year? Wheeeeeee!!!

I think navy and white is smart too, but didn't know if it was suitable for the mother of the bride. Most 'MOB outfits' I've seen have been in pastels, mainly (::shudders::) pink.

My mum wore navy and white to my sister's wedding, so I'd go with eminently suitable. *g* Shudders with you at the thought of pastels.

I'm hoping to go to the Midimeet - it's so close that as long as we're not away on holiday I should be able to come along if only for some of the time. *fingers crossed*.

I'll be booking a twin room so you're welcome to stay over if you want.

I think it's really good for a civil ceremony - just the right amount of smartness without looking like office-wear! :)

I'm becoming a little more confident with the choice, it's a good combination, especially when the hat is added. Any idea how to straighten a kinked brim?

If it's felt or straw use a steam. Easiest way is to heat up some water in a saucepan and hold it over the steam. You can do it in easy stages then. Once steamed, hold in shape until cool otherwise it'll flop.

It's neither (I don't think) and the brim appears to have a wire in it.

It looks great

as to the hat, gentle steam then work the wired brim to the right shape with gentle pinching and stroking and , if necessary pin or weight it till it *sets*
