My fiance’s cousin is getting married and we’ve been invited to their wedding. He’s not close with them (only sees them like once a year or so), but they’re family so obviously he wants to go. It’s going to be in the Wisconsin Dells this spring and it’s going to be formal..like men have to wear suits and women wear dresses. I’ve been to two weddings in my life and they’ve both been casual, so I’m unsure about what’s acceptable. Obviously no white, nothing resembling a wedding dress, and no inappropriate skin showing, but is there anything else I should stay away from?
Thanks for your help, bees! I just don’t want to accidentally be disrespectful!

how formal? like floor length gown formal? or nice dress formal? there’s a difference.
i personally would go with a nice, knee-length dress in a solid color. something you can jazz up with accessories. you can never go wrong with a classic little black dress.

I think you pretty much have it set. I would stay away from wearing heels that are uncomfortable so you’re not around barefoot one hour into the party. For springtime formal, I think a cute cocktail/tea length dress would be very pretty! Black tie formal may require a longer length, though. Good luck. Post some pics of your dress contenders when you find them

colorofmyheart: I believe it’s black tie, but that’s really as far as I know. All she said is that women need to wear dresses and men must be in suits.
Nouna_: Thanks for your answer! I’ll definitely be starting to look around soon. I’ve seen a few I like, but I’ve been questioning them, like ‘is it too short, is it too long, is the color too bright?’. I’t’s incredibly stressful, haha.

marinesfiance: Was there any wording on the invitation re the dress code?
