High Style for Philadelphia Weddings: What a Wedding Guest Wears

It is YOUR day. And you have invited your nearest and dearest to celebrate with you. They know they are special. But what next? Do them a favor and make them feel comfortable by telling them what you expect. Are you starting the ceremony at 6 p.m. SHARP? Will you provide transportation? Where should they park? And, what should they wear? A friend approached me recently and said that he and his wife received a wedding invitation to a ballroom in New York City on a Saturday night. The invitation didn’t specify attire, so he wondered if it would be casual after all and if he needed a tie. The quick answer: The tie is a must, as is a dark suit. If nothing is written on the invitation, here are some clues to help you get dressed: Look at the time of the ceremony and reception. After 6 p.m., assume the attire is dressier.
