About a September wedding dress code 2015 at the Ritz in Chicago. The wedding is at a Catholic Church, but starts at four. I know the rule that after five weddings are usually black tie, but not sure about this one. Can you help?? What should I wear? My husband??

About the September wedding guest dress code 2015 for you and your husband.
When the invitation does not specify Black Tie or Formal Attire, you can assume the dress code is Suits & Dresses. As you say, a four o’clock wedding is not formal. The later in the day the ceremony, the more formal the dress code.
To illustrate the kind of dress that would fit in at the Ritz in Chicago, go to Halsbrook.com and click on Occasions and then Wedding Guest. Not only will you find great dresses, but suggestions as to how to accessorize.
You would wear a wonderful well-made, knee-length cocktail dress with beautiful shoes and carry a small, chic evening bag. Your husband should wear his best dark suit with a white shirt and best tie with black socks and shoes.
