I have worn black to a wedding but felt a bit uncomfortable tbh. It was a summer wedding though. So prob no in my case but sounds like a nice outfit smile

I'm just stuck,

I ordered a dress and It doesn't fit, I'd even bought shoes too

I'm not a huge fan of black for weddings but mixing it up with colour like that should be ok.

Heathcliffscathy Thu 01-Oct-09 12:55:21

the rules are feel fab and don't wear all white!!!

Disenchanted3 Thu 01-Oct-09 12:59:57

'feel fab'

I don't think thats gonna happen

Disenchanted - I second "feel fab". Have worn black - with pink, in my case - to a wedding, and that was fine, so don't worry about the outfit; yours sounds lovely. So let that go, and concentrate on enjoying the do!

I prob wouldnt on a summers day but def would for a winter wedding and especially ok if you are adding coloured shoes and accessories. Go for it.

yes if winter wedding, what accessories have you got? Big colourful necklace might be nice?

Disenchanted3 Thu 01-Oct-09 15:12:24

I've bought this, and will get silver bits to match if it fits!

Disenchanted3 Thu 01-Oct-09 15:14:44

How would you wear it??

Navy shoes? black tights like on the picture?

Silver shoes?

What to wear over it?

sugardumpling Thu 01-Oct-09 15:21:58

not navy shoes maybe black tights and black shoes silver would be nice but not sure with black tights, black pashmina or shrug over the top?

Disenchanted3 Thu 01-Oct-09 15:49:33

Maybe I should dtch the lack tights and go with nude tights , silver shoes?

sugardumpling Thu 01-Oct-09 16:33:22

yes nude tights would go better with silver shoes, tis a lovely dress by the way
