Good tips about clutches - but where do you put one whole dancing? While eating finger foods at a reception? I usually get clutches / purses with optional straps, which takes care of the former, but not the latter.

At a wedding, I would just leave it on my chair or on the table while dancing. I rarely put more than a lipstick and cell phone in my clutch, so it's not like there is any money to steal. And you're probably with people you can trust. As for the cocktail hour, my bags usually have a little strap. Except the little black beaded one, which would probably join PRLady's in the punch bowl. :lol: But I never eat during the cocktail hour. That is how I control not over-eating at weddings. I know I miss out on the better food (since the dinner is usually belch). But, that also helps me to not get food all over the outfit I'm wearing. I am a klutz!


my mother always said that if you put your purse on the floor, you will bring home cockroaches. consequently, i am phobic about a purse even approaching the floor.

I love it! :rofl:


I REFUSE to put purses on the floor. These purse hangers (http://www1.macys.com/shop/product/macys-purse-hanger?ID=404826) are a godsend!

I have one of those too. I got it in Venice. Mine is different because the hook is hinged in a few places and wraps around the piece that sits on the table. Then you unwrap it and it forms a hook. Like this: http://www.zimbio.com/Elsa+Murano/articles/pwYR8i4Hj79/1+Murano+Art+Glass+blue+purple+FOLDING+purse But, mine has millefiore on it. I love it because it's pretty and it reminds me of Venice when I use it :).
Brighton has them too: http://www.brighton.com/searchx/0/0/1/1/?s=handbag+hooks&g=Go
The only problem with purse hangers is that they don't work well with thicker/longer table cloths. But, most of the time they are definitely a Godsend!


I only buy clutches with optional straps too. I'm such a clutz that if I have a clutch at a stand-up reception or cocktail party, I will either starve or drop the purse in the punchbowl.

Me too! :rofl:

You are my long lost twin! :lol: Yesterday, at the gym while doing ab crunches on a floor mat, I managed to fall off it. I actually rolled off the mat. :slinkaway

I have the best drop story (and yes it is totally off topic) we were at an outdoor event where they have port-potties. My daughter dropped her cell phone in one :scream:. Even worse, some crazy (or drunk) idiot fished it out and tired to give it to her. She was, I don't think so, just toss it back. I mean first, it was probably dead from being submerged in "fluid". Second, who would put that near their face? :eek:

One of my friends wants me to join her Zumba class. I tried to explain to her that exercise classes are humiliating when you can't internalize left from right and are always two steps behind everyone.

I would say this is the right icon :shuffle: but I'll bet it knows its left from its right foot.

Thank you! I have a friend who keeps asking me to do Zumba. I am just like you. No sense of left and right. And the added specialness of having no sense of balance. I can power walk 3 miles a day (in 40 minutes) outside on the street. Can't do it on a treadmill, I'd fall off. I can lift 20lb dumbbells and use a universal type piece of equipment in my house. But I will not join a gym, I would humiliate myself! Weird thing, I am very flexible and can do yoga. Go figure. When I was a kid, I would take ballet classes. The teachers were amazed at how flexible I was and my toe point, at the barre. They thought they had found real talent. Then they would ask me to do something in the middle of the floor and I'd fall on my head :rofl:. Their poor disappointed faces were priceless.

Wow, we've really gone off topic! :lol:

I'm basically like that, too, and Zumba - at least the easier stuff - is simple enough that even I can keep track! I would actually suggest giving it a shot, any form of dance and/or aerobics that I can handle can't be too difficult to follow.

Considering what I saw at the gym's group dance class....there isn't a very high standard of coordination to participate. :shuffle:

But, now we must discuss what we should wear to these Zumba classes :D!

I just started looking at shoes online for the wedding. What about these? I'd prefer no heel higher than 2.5-3 inches. Other suggestions for shoes welcome as well. Especially if comfortable. If I don't have to, I'd rather not spend more than $60ish as I'll likely never wear white shoes again. Also, I usually wear a 6.5. Sometimes a 7, sometimes a 6, but typically 6.5.

These are certainly all acceptable. Some of it is what you're comfortable wearing -- if you have no arch like me the D'Orsays (the ones with no middle section) are going to give less support.

Are your shoes going to be particularly visible with your wedding dress? If not, I'd pick the appropriate pair that is most comfortable for standing in all day long. (Are peep toes comfortable for that? Not to me, but ymmv.)

I like the first pair the best (they're a more elegant rendering of the 3rd pair), and the second last pair is nice too. Definitely choose for comfort if no one can see your dress.
