Did some shopping today


-AE Delray's in dark brown
-Ray Ban New Wayfarer's (polarized) in tortoise shell
-Tom's Movember slip on shoes
-Polo RL convertible wool gloves (hobo mittens)
-a Shedrain compact umbrella
-pair of earings for the wife
-some Kate Somerville cosmetic stuff for my mom

All at 40% off

I was close to buying some Tumi luggage, but decided to pass since it wasn't really a necessity as I already have plenty of bags/luggage.

I love wearing a suit

Which brings me to my question...
So there is a college classmate getting married tomorrow
We were friends in school but didn't keep in touch much after graduation
He was in boston and then nyc while I was in la and va
Last time we saw each other was back in 2008 when I was visiting nyc and happened to run into him while meeting other college friends
Anyway, I was not invited to the wedding which is happening in the la area (he lives in nyc still but his family moved out here.. perhaps the girl's family is here as well)
Totally understandable since we weren't that close
But another friend from college had messaged me about meeting up since she is flying in from boston for the wedding and that is how I found out
She's married and she was coming with her husband... but her husband suddenly cannot make the trip
She just asked if I would like to be her wedding date instead. Reception is at a hotel so don't want to waste a plate/seat already paid for probably

Anyway
Would you go? I thought it might put the groom in an awkward situation since he didn't invite me
But I just got response from the friend while i was typing this..
she talked to the groom about how her husband cannot make it... and the groom would prefer if another fellow dartmouth friend can take the place
So I guess he will be okay with it
But still ... not sure if I want to go. Kinda want. Especially just to see a lot of old friends
What would you guys do?

1. Based on your previous comments, I would bet you already had your mind made up that you'd be uncomfortable before you even put on the suit. Just try to be positive about it. Take imolazhp up on his offer to help you pick out a suit, get one that actually fits and is made well, and pretend you're James Bond when you wear it.


2. Did you not consider this when you went to law school? Lawyer = suit (usually). It's not as if you got into something in the IT field where black sneakers are considered dress shoes.

[bimmer app/galaxy s3]
I've had a number of acquaintances get married and not invite me. It doesn't offend me at all.

Anyway, go to the wedding. I doubt it will be awkward with the groom. Even if it is, it's not like you're going to be sitting next to him or talking to him the entire night.

And besides, how often do you get to go on a date with a married woman and not feel like a scumbag? Go for the novelty of it, if nothing else.

I would go. The groom will have many other exciting things going on that day and won't be worried about a replacement guest.....you guys were friends in the past, he'll be excited to see you regardless of the circumstance.
