What do I wear to a church wedding?

Can I wear black to a wedding?
Wearing black to a wedding is completely fine. Black is such a popular colour to wear in general, there is no reason to think that wearing black to a non-religious or non-cultural wedding would be frowned upon. These are really the only times when you should consider whether it is the appropriate thing to do.
Can I wear a black dress to a Catholic wedding?

How do you dress a black wedding?
Choose a style that feels comfortable and doesn’t steal the limelight from the bride. So, avoid sequins and over-the-top plunging necklines and trains. Style your black dress with pops of color using statement jewelry or a bold hat or fascinator and add extra detail with the perfect pair of shoes.
