when I attend weddings with large gaps, I usually wear business attire to the wedding – a dress or skirt with cardigan, etc. The last wedding I went to at a church, had some guests in jeans – that was inappropriate to me.  Put on your “sunday best”

Is the dress you’re wearing this evening a style where you could throw on a black cardigan or something over it to make it a bit more daytime-appropriate?

@ZoeyGirl:  you’ll likely see a combo of regular “church” attire and people in the dresses for the evening.  You won’t feel out of place if you’re dressed down a bit more – it’s appropriate for the afternoon.
