 Ask Janet
Ask Janet Question Saundra: Hi Janet, I am planning a mock wedding for a couple married 50 years. Could you advise me on fashions for the bridal party? Were poodle skirts a 50's style? Your suggestions may be humorous since this is a mock wedding and the script has a great deal of wit in it.
