Q: ~ tomboyheiress
A: I don’t think it’s strange at all! I see colors painted for fraternity boyfriends with a reference to the gift giver’s sorority all the time. It’s totally normal and acceptable to include a little sorority reference on your mostly male cooler design. Your quote is perfect for one side of the cooler, or blended into a collage of images and your joint greek letters.

Hi! I was recently invited by one of my friends that's in a fraternity to go with him on his formal. I know that it's a weekend trip but not much else. I'm not in a sorority because I studied abroad my first semester and wanted to wait until the fall to rush. Could you please help me out with what a formal is and what I need to do/bring for it? Also, would it be too much for me to ask him to go as friends? Thank you so much!
A formal is very similar to a prom in high school, just more “adult.” There should be a dinner, drinking and dancing. The girls usually wear long dresses to a formal and cocktail dresses to a semi-formal. But you should check what the “norm” is at your school, in case all the girls wear short dresses. You want to fit in with whatever the standard is. Formal long dresses are usually solid colored gowns and more streamlined and elegant than a sparkly prom dress. You can probably wear a simple gown and a pair of heels for a classic look.
If it’s an out of town weekend, there may be other activites too. Please find out what’s on the agenda, so you can plan what clothes to bring. You may need travel clothes and an outfit for another event the following day.
If it’s a tradition, many dates may paint a cooler for their fraternity guy. Formals are a typical time for this to happen. It’s quite a complex project, so please find out if this is expected of you. If you need help with cooler painting, I have tips on my FAQ page and you can check out The Cooler Connection on Facebook:
And PLEASE know that you DO NOT have to sleep with a frat guy just because you go to formal with him! YES it’s perfectly Ok to set a ‘friends only’ policy. You are in charge of your own body and you should never feel pressured or obligated to engage in sexual activity. Having a good time does not need to end in hooking up! I hope these tips help and you enjoy your first greek formal. xoxo ;)
