On the Side: Dress Me Up

Bachelorette Party Invitation - Photo by Michelle Judd of Taste As You Go

It's been one year and one day since Stephen and I got engaged, and we're two months (61 days) away from saying "I do". After making tremendous progress in the wedding planning department over the weekend, I think I'm finally starting to feel better about the number of outstanding items on our to-do list. Enough that I can temporarily switch gears and focus on something other than the wedding day.

Namely, my bachelorette party.



Sur La Table Cooking Classes

When it came time to tell my bridesmaids about how I envisioned my bachelorette party unfolding, I gave one explicit instruction: no strippers. (Strip clubs just aren't my scene.) As long as they agreed to adhere to that one rule, then they were allowed to plan whatever they wanted. After receiving the official invitation in the mail, I knew they nailed it.

Please join us in celebration of the bride-to-be

for an evening filled with great food and friendship
as we enjoy cocktails and a cooking class!

Do they know me or what? I couldn't have planned it any better! However, as perfect as this night is going to be, I have a major dilemma.

I have no idea what to wear!


According to Sur La Table, cooking class participants are asked to wear "comfortable, casual clothing and flat comfortable shoes". They are instructed not to wear "open-toed shoes or sandals".

All of the outfits I imagined myself wearing on the night of my bachelorette party don't seem suitable for this activities, and, now, I'm completely stumped. Do I wear jeans and a cute top? What about wearing a comfortable dress and packing heels to change into afterwards?

I need your help! I need outfit suggestions!


I need something that will pass as appropriate for a cooking class but that will also qualify as a step up from my typical outfit for a girls' night out.

What should I wear? If you're on Polyvore, feel free to create a set (or sets!) with your suggestion(s) and post the link(s) in the comments below. I'm a visual person, so specific examples will help. Can't wait to see what you all come up with! :-)
