I’ve just realised the location wedding I will be at tomorrow is heading for a maximum of 15 degrees. It’s at a vineyard and knowing the couple will be at least partly outdoors.

I have a black coat and a white coat. Both work with the dress I plan to wear but neither seem appropriate colour for a wedding - which one do I wear?!

I would personally go black.

People will be wearing black to the wedding, so I wouldnt worry about that.

White but only because it suits me better and I associate black with work. What suits you better?

So long as the dress isn't white, either.

Another person who says black. I think black is often worn at weddings by guests.

I'd go with white also if it were an outdoor/garden wedding or if I were wearing a floral dress. Evening or formal/church wedding? Go with a solid dark colour dress and black coat.

ETA just reread OP and saw that it was an outdoor wedding. What colour did you go with? Maybe you're too drunk to reply lol :)

Just went past a wedding party being photographed last night and all the bridesmaids were in black.  It looked quite elegant.
