- Wedding: September 2012
My wedding ceremony is taking place outside in a manicured garden with a fountain at the end of summer at 5:30 pm. The cocktail hour and dinner reception is inside beginning at 6:00pm at a contemporary art museum.
I basically want the dress code to be as sophisticated as possible while still fitting the outdoor ceremony and the nature of the reception venue. My dress has a train but is made of silk taffeta which I think keeps it from being overly fancy.
I don’t know if the bridesmaids dresses will be long or knee length. The groomsmen will probably be wearing black-tie or black suits. I would prefer the male guests to wear suits and the female to wear dresses fancier than sundresses.
Should I ask guests to wear cocktail attire or semiformal or something else?
