This seems like a good place for this question
My DH and I have been invited to attend an Australian military ball in May 2014. The dress code is formal, so my DH is renting a tux. I have never been to any Australian function and cannot find any resources for guidance and have a few questions.
-Attire- Are there any colors I should avoid/go to? I have a garnet ball gown that is v-necked with an A-line skirt. Would this be appropriate? Are gloves needed or too formal?
-Customs- US military balls include many customs and formalities that must be observed. Are there any unique Australian customs that I should be aware of?
We are very honored to be invited to this event and I would like to make a good impression. Thank you for your assistance.
