My daughter wishes to have her colors for her wedding black and white is that okay if the wedding is at 2 p.m? The bridal party would be wearing black and white as well. Is that proper wedding etiquette for two in the afternoon?

There is nothing chicer than a black & white wedding. A black-and-white bridal party is very smart looking. The image to the left of your question illustrates my point. A real two o’clock wedding with the entire wedding party in black, but the lovely bride.
Since it is a two o’clock wedding — and the earlier in the day the ceremony the less formal the dress code — the bridal party outfits would not necessarily be as dressy as an evening wedding.
Even though the men in the bridal party may wear tuxedos or black suits, male guests would have the option of dressing less formally. For instance, in dark suits.
The bridesmaids would wear black and white or solid black knee-length dresses with black heels. The bride’s dress would be ankle length and not have a train. Nor would her veil be a cathedral-style veil — which cascades to the floor and beyond.
In other words, she wouldn’t wear a ball gown, but she could definitely wear a long dress. Although a black and white knee-length dress is equally as chic.The dress code on the invitation could state ‘Black Tie Optional’ or ‘Business Suits.’
The flowers could be a third color, either red, purple, yellow, but white flowers would be equally as amazing — if not more.
