A Story about A Cruise

What to Wear to Dinner on a Cruise

What to Wear to Dinner on a Cruise

One of my favorite parts of our girl cruise last year was dressing up for dinner.

At first I wondered what to wear to dinner on a cruise, but then we planned it all way ahead of time at our cruise meetings.

Also, I should mention that both Whitney and Sarabeth did a beautiful job covering our dinner attire on their blogs when we returned.

But it was so much fun that I love to look back at these pictures.  Also, Mary Polly has been going through past cruise pictures to plan what we will wear for her first cruise!

Let’s review, shall we?

Our first night on board was Feather Earring Night.

Wear whatever you want, as long as it goes with feather earrings.  Skeeter won the award for the longest feather earrings!  Go Skeeter! (bottom right)

Next up was Hat Night.

Big hats, fascinators and headpieces of every kind.  As long as you are laughing, you look great in a hat!

We went all out on the ship’s official dressy night with Little Black Dresses, Feather Boas and Tiaras.

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you whose idea the boas were. (Ahem, Stormy.)

Maxi Dress night.

Before the cruise, there were lots of discussions about how maxi dresses got their name and on how tall you have to be to wear a maxi dress.  But after we spent our day on the beach in Cozumel rolling around in the sand and getting a wee bit sunburned, everyone was glad to be wearing long comfy dresses!

Our last night on board was Short Dress night.

My dress might have been the shortest.  Whoops.  That was unintentional.  I’ve since passed that dress down to Mary Polly.

This is the sixth in a series of posts about a super fun birthday cruise that was planned by my friends, Sarabeth and Rhonda.  Read the the other parts here: part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4 and part 5.
