husband's cousin is getting married in Sept., here in the Northeast. September is a weird month for weather....can be brutally hot or have a really cool day. We just got the invite. I get the impression it's at a beach house. The invite said "Beach Casual". So What the heck am I supposed to wear? Up here, most weddings are really dressy, so this is unusual. On the opposite side of the spectrum, my cousin is getting married the following weekend at this really ridiculously fancy and expensive place and the dress is formal. husband has to rent a tux. I'm kind of annoyed about this. It's funny, because husband's cousin is well to do and can have a really expensive and crazy wedding without blinking an eye at the checkbook, but yet his is very casual. My cousin, however, is the total opposite. He's 34 and has finally gotten the idea that renting a beach house every summer without having a job is not the way to go. My aunt and uncle bought him a business and are paying for a good part of this really ridicuously expensive wedding and he and his fiance don't blink an eye at booking a place that is way out of their league and then expect everyone to go formal.
