    I’m not sure that I would even notice, let alone care!

    I wear black to weddings all the time.  So do many other guests.  I really don’t care what people wear to our wedding.  I’m happy that they’re there to share the day with us, that’s all.  Well, if someone showed up in a bikini, I might be a little shocked, but other than that, it’s all good.

    @unixfairy:  That’s really weird. I would say to a friend contemplating wearing black to a day wedding, “You can wear whatever you want, but most guests will be wearing sundresses/not black because the wedding is in the daytime. I don’t want you to feel uncomfortable.”

    I think that, if you explained the time of day in your question you would get a completely different set of answers.

    @MrsBroccoli:  I think it’s acceptable to wear black any time of day, especially if its an LBD. Just my opinion though.
