Default 5:00 PM Church wedding----What to wear?

My niece is having an elaborate Church wedding at 5:00 PM---what is appropriate to wear? I am not fond of dresses but guess I will have to make an exception this time. What do you suggest?

a dress good enough to wear at a black tie affair.

5 PM? That's "pull out no stops go to wedding" time.
Wear whatever you would for something like say...New Year's Eve Dance and Dinner.

Here are a couple of definitions that seem to fit. I would go with cocktail attire, but keep it modest.

I think you could certainly wear a dressy suit, too.

Semi-Formal or After Five means that tuxes are not required, nor are long dresses. An evening wedding (after 6 PM) would still dictate dark suits for him, and a cocktail dress for her. Daytime semi-formal events mean a suit for him and an appropriate short dress or dressy suit for her.

Informal is often interpreted as the same as Casual but it actually calls for the same dress as Semi-Formal -- dark suits for him, short dresses for her -- especially when associated with a wedding or special event.

$5.00 (and some change back) hooker-looking dress ....

I feel sure since you are asking, you will choose someting appropriate.
Have fun.

You could wear some nice black slacks and a silk blouse or some kind of a blouse that has ruffles or something to make it look dressy. I don't think you would HAVE to wear a dress. I don't wear dresses anymore and would not in this case either.

Slacks and a blouse really won't work for a very formal wedding.

There are some lovely, lovely formal trouser suits out there. I have several. Very comfortable, and quite appropriate.
