I am trying to figure out what to wear to an early October 5:00 pm outdoor tent wedding in CT. It was not specified on the invitation so..Long or short dress ?? I am 6’1″ 44 yrs old.
When the wedding invitation does not specify Black Tie or Formal Attire, you can assume the dress code Suits & Dresses. For a five o’clock wedding you would wear a knee-length cocktail dress and carry a small clutch bag.
For women over forty, we use the website Halsbrook.com to illustrate the kinds of dresses trending. Click on Occasions and then Wedding Guest to find dresses along with the recommended accessories:
- Armani Collezioni Cobalt Milano Jersey Gathered Dress
- Philosophy Floral-Jacquard Sheath Dress
- Issa Dotty Jersey Wrap Dress
- Issa Black Bay Lurex Jacquard Knit
It will be chilly in CT in early October. If the tent is not heated, you will want to wear a dress with sleeves. With the last dress, you would go up a size to get a bit more length on the dress. The model is 5’9″ and wearing a Small. Black ballerina flats, rather than heels, would not only keep your height down, but prevent your heels from sticking into the grass, if the tent doesn’t have a wooden floor. Wear the gold and Black Swirl Clip Earrings and not the dangling earrings
