Hi... I'm new around here, but you guys seem pretty in-the-know so I figured you might be able to help me out.
Here's the situation: I've been invited to my boyfriend's cousin's wedding coming up next weekend, and I've no idea what to wear. I haven't been to a wedding since I was eleven, so I haven't much experience to go by (I'm twenty, now).
Looking things up on the internet sort of helped, but the whole time-of-day guidelines have now completely thrown me. It's a daytime wedding (2pm) but an evening reception (Cocktails 5-6, dinner at 6)... so which would I dress for? I have an idea or two for dresses, but I'm not sure if they're suitable... One is predominantly (a rather vibrant) purple, while the other... it's nice, but you can sort of tell it's my mom's.
Any help you could offer would be so very appreciated. I've never met this cousin (or most of that side of his family, for that matter...) and I'm a bit worried about first impressions... A bit silly, yes, but there it is.
I'm open to any suggestions whatsoever... I'm always up for a reason to go dress shopping ;). If anyone's really curious, I could post links to pictures of the two dresses at some later point.
Thanks in advance for your help.
