This dress acceptable?

by Rosemary
(Chanute, KS, USA)

My granddaughter is getting married next October 31 (yes, Halloween). I have a new black sheath dress with a somewhat shiny copper-colored jacket. Would this be acceptable to wear to a wedding or is the black a no-no?

What is acceptable for the grandmother to wear?

Thank you for your thoughts on this question.

If you look great in your new black sheath and copper jacket, wear it. There are no longer any hard and fast rules about how different generations dress for weddings​. Especially grandparents because not all of us look like granny anyway!!

Have fun!
