There are few things more nerve-wracking than deciding what to wear to a wedding. Wedding guest attire can be complicated—especially if the invitation is vague. If you have been invited to a wedding and aren't quite sure what to wear, keep in mind there are certain guidelines to follow based on the time of day for the ceremony as well as the formality.
As a very general rule, women wear dresses and men should wear a suit.
Your suit should not be black, and your dress should not be white. However, as soon as you add in dress code requirements like "black tie optional," or "cocktail attire," you have a much more specific look to achieve.
