Hello my little bloggeroos, it seems there are a lot of you out there with your share of problems.
You poor things - but never fear, Aunt Susie is here!
I received an email from Miss Doris Open today. I thought I would share it with you as you never know when you might find yourself in a similar situation. Then you too can benefit from my expert advice.
It seems Auntie Doris has been invited to her favourite niece's wedding and would like some advice on what to wear and how to behave.
When I need advice myself, I always find my large extended family are a mine of useful information and helpful tips.
On this occasion, I decided to ask my Auntie Moo. She has over 20 nieces and has been to loads of weddings.
She is well past 70 and has her own unique style when it comes to wedding outfits, so over to you Auntie Moo.........................
Hi Auntie Doris, Auntie Moo here,
Oh you lucky thing, I just love weddings, (although for some reason, I've not been invited to a couple recently.)
WHAT TO WEAR
Now here's a chance to be daring, and really push the boat out. I've found a few ideas.
What do you think of....................
Try to find a really unusual hat
and these shoes would complement your dress a treat
Only buy a pair of shoes like this if they're comfy.
A special occasion is a really good opportunity to practice a new look with your makeup too. I know you're a similar age to me so something like this looks lovely......
That completes the look, although I also add my walking aid too!
How to Behave
Remember you are a "Maiden Aunt of a Certain Age" you have a duty to behave in a way fitting to your title, so.....................
Make sure you kiss all the males at the wedding reception between the ages of 14 and 45. Ensure you leave a bright red lipstick mark on their cute little faces!
When you are offered a drink, your reply should be "Well I only usually drink lemonade, but if you insist - I'll have a large sweet sherry." Drink this a soon as possible, more sherry will then follow!
All of this alcohol is necessary. It is your duty to keep the dancing going - all night if possible.
You have to dance very silly and shout wooooohoooooo! loudly.
Not only is expected for you to make a complete fool of yourself............
IT'S THE LAW!
Have a lovely time
Sue's Auntie Moo
