Weddings in Tahoe
Where do ladies shop or what do you suggest to wear for cute
clothing suitable for a wedding in Tahoe on the beach this
summer? There will be also a big dinner event and a brunch in
the days before the wedding. I am told to wear
''casual-elegant'' for the wedding and the dinner. I don't know
how to dress up and look like it's ''me''. I love
Anthropologie but most things seem to be for long-legged body
types. I have a regular body, decent figure, in my mid 40s and
look my age. I want to look sophisticated and ''dressed'' but
yet not fancy or done up. Any suggestions? I also need ideas
about jewelry - what is in now, vs. what not to do?
usually go camping for our vacations
My husband and I attended a Tahoe wedding on a boat last summer. I
found my dress at 'Ann Taylor' which I think fits the bill for casual
elegant. As for jewelry, I would highly recommend checking out the
following website: www.goodtogojewelry.com. Marcella Austenfeld is a
BPN member and creates some stunning, reasonably priced pieces. Good
luck and enjoy the wedding
From your description it sounds like any of the ''looks'' at Talbot's
would work. Unfortunately they are no longer at Bay St. in Emeryville.
I've had good luck with the quality (long life) of their clothes and
their sizing (wide range, not just 2-10 for models!). They are pricey!
J Jill might work too but I don't shop there as much so can't
personally recommend (is in emeryville).
Chico's (there is one in Emeryville) also has some good looks ~ their
sizing is ''different'' but I love their jewelry. Check out the
clearance rack for cheaper jewelry.
J.Crew has a great strapless embossed cotton dress that could be
perfect for you. If strapless isn't your thing you could get straps
sewn in by any seamstress - you'd just need to buy some wide pretty
ribbon (at a fabric store or Paper Source on 4th Street or for
something really special you could buy ribbon at Tail of the Yak on
Ashby near College) or something that could be made into straps (I've
done that, too). It's about 100 bucks but they have some colors on sale
on their website right now. You could get a pretty jacket or cardigan
to go with it.
I own 4 of these dresses and they fit the bill perfectly for such an
Hope you have a great time.
I would check out Molly B both on 4th Street and on Vine. They often
have pretty summer dresses that would work for weddings. While at
Molly B on Vine look in Earthly Goods on the corner. Their clothes are
not as unique but more classic.
I'm looking for information to plan a wedding in North Tahoe in
late July. The wedding was originally going to be in Berkeley
but I had to change plans for religious reasons (don't ask). So
I am now looking for information on places and resources in North
Tahoe, in or around Tahoe City.
The wedding party will be very small, about 30 people. I'm
looking for a rabbi, a place for the ceremony and an evening sit
down dinner afterwards, and a caterer for the dinner.
Alternatively, I'd consider a very nice restaurant that has an
outdoor space like a deck or garden for the ceremony and then
dinner for the wedding party. (Still need rabbi.)
I'll also entertain suggestions on a wedding chapel in Reno with
an Elvis impersonator rabbi.
