Am going to an evening wedding reception next week and want to know if its okay to wear jeans with a smart top? Or should I make more of an effort?!

No, jeans at a wedding are not acceptable.

No, jeans not OK for wedding reception however nice the top is.

No, no jeans. Posh trousers if you don't want to go down the skirty route.

Thanks for the advice! Hate wearing trousers out as I wear them every day at work so I dont feel any different if I wear them at weekend, even with a posh top! Might have to look for a skirt!

I asked this question on a wedding forum once (about DH wearing jeans/short/blazer). Opinion was quite split but there were major fireworks along the way... better to be over-dressed and I'd go with a skirt or dress if I were you!

aaah shirt not short

Definitely not.

Not jeans...shorts and blazer yes, with heels...

Pencil skirt or a nice summery one then do you think?

Depends, I wouldn't wear blue jeans, but I did wear cream skinny jeans and a coral top (from Reiss) to a wedding reception once.
