Hi all! I have never been to a wedding a guest, only in the wedding party myself. I have a wedding to attend at the end of the month and was planning on wearing a long black dress (with beading around the neck) and a dusty pink shawl. Bride’s only direction was she wanted evening dresses.
However, I recently came across the rule of not wearing black to a wedding. Google seems to say it’s fine on all the etiquette sites but a couple people I’ve spoken to in real life were adamant that it wasn’t.
What are your thoughts on a woman wearing black (with colourful accents) to a fall wedding?
