Since I am only the aunt, is it okay to wear a plain black dress to my nephew's wedding?
It is sleek and simple and very flattering. I have awesome pumps and a sleek new clutch to carry with just enough shine to be an awesome accessory. I love the outfit and it looks great, but black at a wedding....leaves me a bit concerned! The colors of the wedding are royal blue, sunflower yellow, cream and brown. Yes...4 of them. I have a sheath in these colors, but it is more casual than the other family members are wearing, so thought the Little Black Dress would work. What do you think?
I think you must wear some other colour, as you say that you are only aunt.
I went to my brother in law's wedding recently and was very conscious of wearing black. I searched around for outfits, but found a nice black dress with grey sash. It was fine. I know I wasn't a close relative but if you accessorize it with a bag and shoes/scarf of a nice color, I really do not think anyone will judge you for it. It sounds like a nice outfit, and if you feel comfortable and look smart, then go for it.
Ahh, the trouble with colour symbolism in different cultures. Some cultures reserve white for funerals and red for weddings, but if you try that in America - YIKES! LOL
I've seen black with accents of colour, but never solid - or only - black. I'd suggest a classy pashmina, over jacket, wrap, etc. in a colour that doesn't encroach on the wedding colours to go over your LBD. This way, it doesn't look like your grieving over your nephew's bride choice ;-)
I wore the sheath and was so glad! There were many who wore black, and it would have been fine, but the sheath matched so well! Also, I was so much more comfortable! Thanks for the comments and help!
Yes it's okay. Black will take you anywhere. Just dress it up with earrings, a necklace, bracelets or shoes and a bag.
