Black Tie Suggested

Similar to "Black Tie Optional," but for men: If you have access to a tuxedo, wear it.


Him:

Tuxedo or formal dark suit and tie.


Her:

A long dress, a really dressy suit, or something cocktail-length (but still formal). Glamorous makeup and dramatic jewelry and hair are appropriate.

Now that you know what to wear, make sure you know what to give:

Q&A: Invitation Wording: How to State the Time?

I will be getting married at 5:30 p.m. How do I word the time on the invitations? I've heard "half after five" is appropriate, but I think it sounds stuffy. If "five thirty" is okay, should I hyphenate or not? Also, should I say "in the afternoon" or "in the evening?" I don't want my guests to think I'm having a formal, black-tie wedding -- plus it's summer and the sun will still be up, so I'm leaning toward "afternoon."
