My wife is trying to find a dress for her nephew’s two o’clock wedding. The groom says it is going to be formal and the dinner will be less formal. The wedding ceremony is in a cathedral. What color dress would be appropriate? She has one dress that’s light grey and another dress that is white with pink flowers and has a hoop skirt, which comes straight down and flares out.

About summer wedding guest dress code. What your wife wears to the wedding depends largely on the time of year. If you’re going to a summer wedding, a knee-length white dress with pink flowers would be lovely and summery on a hot day.
The grey dress sounds more sophisticated, even though I don’t know the style. A grey dress is fairly neutral and she can’t really go wrong, as long as the dress is knee-length and it isn’t such a light shade grey that it appears off-white.
Traditionally, out of respect for the bride on her wedding day, the only woman wearing white at a wedding is the bride.
However, if your wife decides to wear the white and pink floral knee-length dress to a summer wedding and there is a lot of pink in the dress, she should look perfectly lovely at her nephew’s wedding.
