My husband and I have been invited to a wedding in late May and it is an outdoor wedding. It’s a friend of his, but they aren’t like BFF level close. It’s an outdoor wedding at a park, and it seems like a pretty low-key event. No dress code listed on the invite or their wedding website and I’m waiting to hear back on what their colors are. I know black dresses or accents in outfits can be a touchy subject at weddings, so I wanted to get some feedback. Would either of these be good choices for a laid back outdoor spring wedding? Also, I’m very short (5’1”) so I won’t run the risk of these dresses being too short or “club length” on me. TIA!

Apparently there’s an old “superstition” or dumb etiquette where wearing black to a wedding means that you disapprove of the union. I’ve had a couple friends flat out say they wouldn’t want their guests wearing black to their wedding because it seems like funeral attire. I guess I just don’t know if there’s an acceptable ratio of black to other colors? I don’t want anyone to think I’m protesting when I’m not!
