Re: Appropriate Dress To A Wedding And Bullying
I don't condone bullying.
With that said, how did we get to a place in society where people once dressed up just to go to town, regardless of how poor you were, to wearing pajamas to the grocery and a dress like that to a wedding? I think that dress is inappropriate for a wedding. Why would one wear it unless they want to be the center of attention.
Improper dress occurs in every aspect of society these days. I'll give an example that pokes at my own neck of the woods. I live in the country, and many years ago, most people were poor here, but you could bet they had at least on good shirt, pair of pants, and dress that they wore at events anytime they had a chance because they took pride in the fact that they could look nice and appropriate to the occasion. They could "clean up pretty good" as the saying went.
These days, if there is an occasion that calls for a little dressing up, country boys can't always dress accordingly, because they're just "country boys, right?" Instead of dressing nice for the occasion, they wear overalls, Redwing work boots, and their John Deere cap; and if the clothes look a little worn and the cap has a little field dust on it, that adds to the effect too.
The opinion among some is that people have the right to wear what they want. Well, that is true. Since I am an adult and can wear whatever I want, so, I choose to wear things appropriate to the occasion. Why would one not?
