Y'all remember a few weeks back when I mentioned that in The South, Spring is Weddin' Season? It's ok if ya don't. That's why I have pretty pink links. This past weekend was another event to add to my weddin' season. Many have come and gone but over the years there/s been a small group of girls I've semi-stayed in contact with. We met in Kindergarten almost 22 years ago. We were in Girl Scouts together and our moms have kept a tight knit friendship. They have affectionately named themselves the Shouldabeen Sisters. This past Memorial Weekend one of the Girls had her bridal Shower. She is the first in the group to get married if you don't count older sibs.
I love Memorial Day/Weekend and am a supporter of rememberin' the real reason for the season, but yall... I get so excited that I can officially wear white again. Recently I had someone ask me where the 'no white after Labor Day rule comes from'. I was always taught that white was cooler and in The South where it is always hotter it was a way to stay cool in the Summer. White was also lighter back in the Antebellum South. As the years progressed, think 1930's, white became a sign of High Society. Many wore darker colors to work. Even in the summer. But if you were seen in white it usually meant you have money and the time and leisure in the summer to do as you pleased. I mentioned before that the ONE time I wore white after labor day I messed my pants so bad. I've never defied the fashion god's sense.
I hope y'all had a lovely Labor Day weekend?!?! I wanna hear all about it. Spill. What did ya do. Where did ya go? What's your favorite things about Weddin' Season.
