Bridesmaid wearing a Bolero... does this mean they're conservative?
I'm going to be a Bridesmaid in my friend's wedding this summer, I'm shopping online for bachelorette party dresses... and I'm starting to wonder just how much skin is appropriate to reveal?
I haven't seen my friend in years, and I've never met her fiance... but I do know that: he is religious, she was recently baptized, and my Bridesmaid wear includes a bolero to cover my shoulders (this inspired my main concern-- does a bolero mean they're pretty consertative and I should steer clear of cocktail dresses? Or is that a traditional thing in a church?).
I have a few questions, keep in mind this is my first time:
A.) Being a Bridesmaid
B.) Attending a Rehearsal dinner
C.) Attending a bachelorette party
What I should wear to the Rehearsal dinner? I was thinking black Express pants and a white blouse? Would a dress be better, if so how much skin is too much at a Rehearsal dinner? Here is what my outfit looks like, this "dress" fits more like a top:
What should I wear to the bachlor/bachelorette party? How much skin is appropriate to show?
Does asking Bridesmaids to wear a bolero during the wedding mean it would also be inappropriate to show your shoulders at the bachelorette party???
Thanks for any advice, suggestions, experienced bridesmaid tips, ANYTHING!
