S/O of Help me decipher dress code
« on: October 06, 2012, 04:03:47 PM »
Have a small dilemma of my own. I'm going to a wedding next weekend, held on Sunday at 3PM. Dress is described as cocktail attire. What exactly does that mean? I've got a pretty red dress and high heel shoes and was going to step it up on the jewelry. Does that work?

Fortunately the cousin getting married is down to earth and I certainly don't think she'll throw me out! But I want to appear appropriate.

Dress looks kind of like this but is short sleeved and red.

Looks fine and cocktail-appropriate to me, as long as this isn't a group that would be upset at red at a wedding.

I think it's fine and I really like the dress.  It's pretty typical of what I've seen at weddings that are semi formal or cocktail, so it's not too casual, if that's what you're wondering.

That looks like cocktail gear to me, so I think you're fine.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.
