What to wear to a New Year's Eve Wedding

Q. I am attending a wedding on New Year’s Eve beginning at 7 pm at a traditional Methodist church. I am at a loss of what to wear! Is going sparkly too inappropriate?

A. I would say, if someone plans a wedding for New Year’s Eve, they better expect that people will bring on the bling! Ring in the New Year and toast the happy couple in a dress that is festive, yet appropriate for a church wedding. Skip anything too sexy, and perhaps forego something too bright, like red sequins, but other than that, have fun with your look. If you’re not comfortable wearing a sparkly dress, opt for some sparkling accessories, including shoes, instead.

The blue look on this page would work well, or try one of these festive dresses:
