I am from Florida and have been invited to a black tie optional wedding in Newport. The ceremony is at 1:30 pm and the reception is at 5:30 pm at The Bohlin. Am I supposed to wear 2 different dresses?
The dress code Black Tie Optional is rather confusing. You want to be dressed appropriately, and yet, not overdressed — nor underdressed. Additionally, having the ceremony three to four hours earlier than the reception leads one to wonder if one needs to dress down for the ceremony and then hours later dress up for the reception: A two outfit wedding? That’s thought provoking for most of the guests.
The Black Tie dress code request asks all who identify as male to wear a tuxedo. In Newport we’re a bit more laid back with the dress code Cocktail Attire being the most popular. Cocktail Attire is a step down from the dress code Black Tie Optional.
