Next in our series of dressing for all ranges of weddings, we have the Black-tie wedding. A little different from its friend white-tie, a black-tie wedding follows a “formal but fun” aesthetic. All sorts of dresses for this type of affair are fair game, from floor-length to a short statement dress. Bling, glitz, glamour, and slits are all acceptable. It helps to think of a black-tie wedding as a chance to show off, and thinking of yourself on the red carpet while shopping for a dress is alright too. You’ll want to wear something that is both sexy and classy, with accessories that signal you’re there to have a grand old time. For men, the rules are also a little lax. While a tie is necessary, and a tuxedo is preferred, a regular old suit is also acceptable to wear to a black-tie wedding.
