little bit of advice please.....

what is the most appropriate outfit for a woman to wear to a summer wedding (and dinner and reception)......

I've consulted with Mrs I, and she says:

Something dark, so one's merkin doesn't show under the sun/disco lights :-)

Something with pockets, so any companions don't have to either carry all one's "essentials" for one, or spend ages waiting while one ferrets around in one's handbag

Eyepatch, stripy shirt, britches and cutlass

You'll be the belle of the ball.



...there's plenty more c**** in the cup.

ascertain the colour of the outfits for the bride, groom, bridesmaids, best man, ushers, fathers, mothers, and the colour of the flowers and then try not to clash.

Ah the SE1 chatter forum, first stop for anybody looking for useful advice.

<<ascertain the colour of the outfits for the bride, groom, bridesmaids, best man, ushers, fathers, mothers, and the colour of the flowers and then............>> make sure that your chosen outfit has a little bit of each of these colours in it. If you can't afford Missoni, then try any local Morris side.

This was from an American site: http://fashion.about.com/cs/tipsadvice/a/weddingguest.htm
• Don't wear white because it competes with the bride. There are plenty of other colors available.
• Don't wear black or sequins during the daytime.
• Don't worry about wearing the same colors as the bridesmaids or mothers. You can't possibly coordinate with everyone in the wedding party.
• Do wear something feminine and appropriate, out of respect for your hosts. Clubwear, overtly sexy clothing (strapless, see-through, etc) doesn't belong at a wedding. If you have to ask if it's appropriate, it probably isn't.
• Don't wear opera-length gloves (to top of arm) with anything but sleeveless or strapless gowns.
• Do take off gloves to eat or drink.
• Do use good judgment if the invitation doesn't specify the formality of the event. A pastel suit or soft floral dress for daytime or a little black dress for evening (after 6 p.m.) will take you almost anywhere.
- I realise now where I've always gone wrong, I always wear see-through and I forget to take my gloves off when I'm snaffling for pickled eggs.
