    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…
