Jewish weddings tend to be very glam and glitzy, so defineately Long slinky/sparkly even dress with wrap or shrug for shoulders. Not hats with Black tie, feathered hair peices perhaps. It is not suits and pearls, more sequins and frills More evening wear (not black)
I prefer the pink halter neck dress.Gorgeous and looks younger than the sparkly brown one.It would look good with strappy metallic shoes.I think a wrap would go better than a shrug on that particular dress.Depends what your hair is like as to what hat is suitable.
right track so far - def w wrap or shawl for shoulders (and do you have to cover your head if you're a married woman? can never remember).
Not hat and prob not fascinator - too afternoon-weddingy and you need full on black tie.
Would normally advise Monsoon but am finding their stuff a bit hippy this season (excellent for wraps though).
Some v pretty things in Coast - bodice-type tops and silky skirts, dresses etc - basically outfits that are too dressy/sparkly/revealing to wear to a traditional afternoon wedding but aren't quite a ballgown.
Prom-type dress may fill the niche nicely if you're the right shape.
Oh I'm rather taken with the idea of a fascinator. Do you think it isn't suitable for a black tie do. In the past when I've been to black tie do's it is a uni ball or coporate function at dh's work so I know what to where but for a wedding I'm not sure.
Hi COV ,
Me and my DH have just (2 weeks ago) attended a Black tie wedding aand it was fab!
He wore the Normal Dinner Suit and looked liked a doorman (but so did all males at the wedding partie) i got an outfit from coast , black satin corset top with removable straps (wore it strapless) and a matching skirt that came below the knee with a split up the back , but not to high, I teamed it with a cream pahmina (SPL) from asscosirise which had a silver effect runnig throught it!
Black shoes and some dress jewlery from claires
Whole outfit coast about £150 but its something that is timeless so you can wear it again and again.
It looked really dressed up and the wrap made it more like a wedding!! Go and have a look in coast!! One of the best outfit ever!!
