Is it okay to wear black to a Spring wedding?

Would you wear black to a Spring wedding?  Please take our survey below.

Signature A la Mode’s response: Yes and No.  Sure that’s helpful right.  Well, the answer depends on what time of day the wedding is scheduled for.

If the wedding is scheduled for morning or early afternoon, it would be best to refrain from wearing black.  Traditionally, black has been reserved for funerals and formal settings.  During the day, in the Spring a more colorful attire is typically more accepted by a group of diverse guests.  Pastels are a common choice for bridesmaid dresses in the Spring, so if you choose a pastel, a small shrug or shawl over your dress would help deter attention should the bridesmaids have a similar color as you.  It is safe to go with a print dress for a daytime Spring wedding.

A black dress is acceptable to wear to a night wedding in Spring as black is an evening wear color.  However, it is advisable to add color for a more festive look as one does not want to be reminded of funeral colors in the church.  Adding colored shoes and a colored clutch is a great way to display a pop of color.
