If you have received an invitation to a black tie wedding, you best believe it's going to be a fancy event! It can be a mix of excitement and fear when it comes to dressing for such an occasion, and no pressure, but the Bride and Groom will be expecting you to pull out all of the stops for their big day.
It can be tricky for women as the rules are less clearly defined, although evening gowns are the go-to, you can also opt for a more wearable midi length for that equally elegant, classy option to take you effortlessly from ceremony to evening do. You must also consider the colour - avoid white (obvs) and the colour the bridesmaids are wearing and you'll be good to go!
