    I'm an American and I'm attending a wedding in Britain when I come over for uni this Fall....and I'm a little confused about what to wear. At home, we pick out one dress to wear and we're sorted. But I've heard that there, you wear something more casual and conservative to the church, usually with one of these silly hats or fascinators, and then a cocktail dress to the reception at night. Is that true? If so, is this appropriate for the church?



    With this, I was thinking, to make it a bit dressier:




    Would this appropriate? Thrown in with some killer patent stilettos?

    That is fine you can wear it to both the wedding and the reception.

    P.S. where is the dress from? It's really nice!

    You don't need two outfits - what you've got will be fine for both the wedding and the reception. Have fun!

    The one dress is fine for both wedding and reception, though you might want to take the hat thing off for the reception.

    A hat? Not so much. That dress is a little posh. At weddings you can pretty much wear anything you like (bar jeans and mini skirts).

    You could get away without the hat thing if you want.
    And I love that dress!!

    We don't do the hats in America, so I feel like I'm playing dress-up...at first I thought it was a bit silly but I warmed to the idea pretty fast. :P And the dress is from www.modcloth.com - I love their stuff so much!

    Wearing a hat to a wedding isnt essential. The last wedding I went to I was the only one wearing a hat and it was a posh wedding. The dress will be fine for both the church service and the reception.

    The hat definitely isn't a necessary item.
