What Should I Wear?

Next weekend we are going to Iowa for the wedding of some friends from college. They've been together over 20 years and are finally tying the knot! I was chatting with the groom via FB today and I inquired about the dress. He said he is wearing a suit & tie. He thought people would go dressy casual. Wedding is in a Baptist church and then a reception at the hotel (where we are staying.) It's a brand new hotel, but not a super upscale. I don't have much in the way of dresses so I am wondering if pants or even dressy capris are OK? I'd probably go with some kind of blouse that needs ironing (my idea of nice!) Does that sound OK? What would you suggest I wear?

For DH & DS, I am having them wear khakis and button shirts, and DD will wear a dress. DT (teen) is staying home.

  1. If it isn't going to be a very formal wedding I don't think you need to wear a dress. Capris and a nice blouse would be just fine in my opinion.

  2. You'll always look dressier in a monochromatic outfit. And dress it up with some nice jewelry.

  3. I vote clothes as for what kind of clothes you will have to look to someone with better fashion sense than I. I never know what to wear.
    Good luck

  4. If I had a dress or skirt, I'd wear that. If not, then the capris should be fine with a nice top. Wear some cool jewelry with it.
