Related to the post about wearing that white Ann Taylor dress to the wedding, in lieu of finding a non-white based dress, I have an outfit in the wardrobe that might work. It’s a silk definitely non-white light gray top (like the picture without the flowers and is gray) and a skirt that resembles the pictures in the links below. The two pieces are definitely different color but do not clash. Can I wear that to the wedding or does it say somewhere in the rule book one must wear a dress to a wedding?

I think two pieces is fine… how formal is the event? that would be the key.

No rules as far as I know – I’ve worn (and seen others wear) skirts and trousers to weddings. No idea if there are any rules in other places…

I agree with kryje003. I don’t think the even dictates what you should where but more the formality of the wedding. If the wedding is an afternoon garden wedding I think it’s perfect, however I wouldn’t personally wear it to an evening wedding. With that being said I even had woman in pants suits at my wedding and they still looked nice.

I think you could get away with it for an afternoon wedding. It doesn’t really look like those pieces go together very well, though. I think the colors and looseness with ruffles may mean that it doesn’t look like you think in your head…

@kryje003: The official dress code on the invitation is Semi-formal (Jacket optional). I get casual or formal, it’s the semi-formal beach wedding that throws me off. In my mind, summer dresses generally are categorized as casual, with the floral pattern… etc. The ceremony is in the late afternoon with reception follows in the evening.
