What’s your take on wearing black to weddings? Do you think black is for funerals, not weddings? Or do you think a black dress or suit is always appropriate attire?

    I think any color (yes even white) is fine.

    Nah.

    Eh, definitely not something I'd do, but it's become normal.

    Personally, I try to avoid wearing black or white to a wedding. BUT black is such a versatile and popular color these days that I don't think I'd see anything wrong with it.....as long as it wasn't one of the mothers wearing black, haha.

    I'm changing into a black dress for our reception. I don't care what people wear! Just try not to show up in a wedding gown, haha!

    Not at all a faux pas. If they had a mourning veil, then I'd be a tad concerned.

    Not at all. I wore black to a wedding and didn’t even think twice about it haha. It was a late fall wedding so black was in-season and I just have a lot of black dresses. Turned out the MOB wore a black dress too! :p

    Nah. Black at weddings is perfectly acceptable. Who doesn't love good LBD?

    Wear whatever you want. If I had a doubt you supported us, or would think you were the type who would wear black as some sort of "sign" that the marriage was a bad idea, etc....you probably weren't invited anyway! Black is a great color - wear it!

    Nah? I don’t see any issue with it. I thought the golden rule was no white.

    I initially wanted to try to somehow tell our guests to not wear black. However, that's ridiculous. Also, I love wear black sometimes and I think it can be so sharp so I wouldn't think it's a faux pas.
