If I was going for the whole day I wouldn't wear a black dress to a wedding but am wondering if acceptable for the evening do that starts at 7pm. If not I will have to buy something which I'd rather not have to do.

I am sure if you style it with coloured accessories it would be fine. Maybe a bright pashmina or shrug.

I went to a wedding this spring and lots of people were in black for whole day. You will be fine!

Ooh a coloured pashmina is a good idea! I do need new shoes so maybe get something that's not plain black

It's more party dress than funeral dress but didn't want to make some huge social faux pas!

Of course you can.

I wore a black dress to my brother's wedding - but then I loathe him and my now SIL so tbh it felt more like a funeral than a wedding.
