‘Black tie’ weddings are popular world over but what exactly does it mean? For men it’s simple, a tuexdo will suffice but what about the female guests? Formal do’s can be a bit tricky when deciding what to wear.
iVillage.com suggest that your dress should be long – either tea length (mid calf) or ankle length. Don’t go any shorter than the knee or you’l be that girl the mother of the bride warned everyone about. ‘Black tie’ also doesn’t mean that you should only wear black. Opt for bold colours like red, purple or pick up one of the pretty patterned dresses that are currently in all the stores.
