Does anyone really care about “fall colors” or “spring colors” when choosing formalwear? I can understand choosing different styles and fabrics to adapt to the weather, but are there really people who will judge you for wearing pastels in fall or jewel tones in the spring?
I had a dress picked out for a wedding I’m attending (I posted about it a few weeks ago when inquiring about gift customs), but I just found out that the ceremony takes place outdoors, in a garden, at around 2 PM. The season-neutral, full-length gown I had in mind doesn’t seem like it would be appropriate (if you trust what this site says, I don’t think the occasion will count as “very formal,” but there was zero guidance on the invitation). I have a knee-length cocktail dress that looks great on me, but it’s light lavender with black satin trim. The wedding is in mid-august. Think that’ll work?
Am I overthinking this? Damned social anxiety. I do want to make a good impression. I have no close female family to ask, and my female friends are either totally un-girly or of the “great flip-flop flap” generation. When I asked my boyfriend to read the invitation looking for a dress code, he said “I think it’s just normal wedding clothes.” :smack: He’s no help.
Feel free to hijack this into discussion of seasonal colors in general (or whatever), so long as I get some kind of reassurance on the dress. Thanks.
