Fashion Feminar: What to Wear to a Wedding


what to wear to a weddingJoin Lee Heyward, style coach and owner of Charleston Style Concierge, and Kathryn Poe, owner of Mary Mojo Boutique, as they discuss tips for planning your wardrobe for a wedding. The live event, What to Wear to a Wedding, happening on Wednesday, May 25th at 6:30 p.m. at Mary Mojo Boutique in Mount Pleasant, SC, will benefit the Warriors Wear Pink organization.

Warriors Wear Pink lends assistance both financially and mentally to families fighting breast cancer. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales and shopping at Mary Mojo Boutique during the evening of the event will be donated to Warriors Wear Pink. (Click here to register!)

In an effort to eradicate wedding attire confusion, Lee and Mary will host this exciting and highly informative Feminar, dedicated to helping women eliminate frustration and quickly and easily dress for a wedding.

During this event at Mary Mojo Boutique (1405 Ben Sawyer Blvd., Mount Pleasant, SC), you’ll learn . . .

  • How to make one dress work for both a casual and dressy wedding.
  • What to wear according to the time of a wedding.
  • How to know the dress code when it isn’t specified.
  • What colors you should NEVER wear.
  • Which accessories are must-haves for the next wedding you attend.

Once Lee and Mary have finished their Feminar, you’ll be invited to delight in refreshments and shopping. Tickets to the event cost $20, but remember, part of the proceeds go to a great cause!
