Fashion Advice: Is it Okay to Wear Black to a Wedding?

Dear Budget Fashionista,

I have a wedding to attend in late June and I found a black dress with small white polka dots that I love. Is it a fashion don’t to wear black to a wedding?

Answer: While you want to avoid wearing black to a daytime wedding, it’s fine to wear the dress to an evening wedding (i.e. weddings that start after 5pm).
