What to wear to NJ Wedding?

Recommended Posts

Well 2 pm is semi-formal. Definitely hold the white pants. If you are into dresses a nice halter dress would be nice or you can never go wrong with blacl. It is prom season now so you can find something that is sexy chic and in between at a good deal....As someone mentioned you definitely do not want to be underdressed. White sandals is definitely not a good idea either IMO.

I'd agree that it depends on where the wedding is...

 

I had a girlfriend who wore one of those one piece pant-strapless things with chunky jewelry because she is not a dress person either, but the material was really nice and flowey(SP?).

 

Anyway, I am a Jersey girl myself, so if it is South Jersey I can really clue you in on what to wear.

Hi i went to a wedding in new york an italian,irish event at the yale club.I wore all black lace two piece with dusky pink accesories. I think the wearing white only becomes possible if you are attending just the evening event.Personally id use it as an excuse to go on another shopping trip. Sorry if that wasnt what you really wanted to here.I also think if you are sensible and go with dressy black with fun bright accesorries you can bring an outfit bang up to date and pull it out at xmas with different jewellry and have more fun with it.

2pm big Jersey Italian wedding - dress up...I've never been to one where people weren't decked out...day or night. As a Jersey girl who's been almost only Italian weddings, followed by Jewish weddings which are pretty much the same....trust me on this!!!

I'm also Italian, and from Jersey. You're talking about people who basically wear a prom dress to go to the mall and fake eyelashes at the gym, so I would try to get as dressed up as possible. I would definitely not wear any white/ ivory/ or variation of the color. Pants are totally fine though. Why not just black pants and a satin or beaded top. The Limited always has super cute tops that can be worn more formal, and you can use them again to go out at night with some jeans.

ditto on what others have said about the nj italian weddings. doesn't matter what time of day it is, it will be dressy. for italians, wearing all black to a wedding isn't the no-no it is in other cultures or other parts of the country (in fact, it's almost the uniform, lol). wearing any shade of white/cream/off-white however will probably get stares and whispers. you don't need to wear a dress if you are uncomfortable with it--dress pants with a dressy blouse and the right heels/jewelry can be enough.

 

edited to point out to the jersey girls that there's a BDW meetup this weekend in south philly! http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t36815
