Hi, I'm Lacy Pool with Grayson Elise Styling and Accessories, and I'm here today in Austin, Texas at Serendipity Bridal to talk about how to wear black to an outdoor evening wedding. Now, considering that it's still in the evening, it means that it's going to be formal to semi-formal. So, you're going to always want to dress it up. What you can do is kind of play with the fabrics, being that it's outdoor, probably a little bit warmer climate and by doing that we've raised a hemline, made a shorter, more full dress and this bobby knot overlay, in this particular gown, really adds a fun, playful dimension to the dress. Now, by adding this belt with the brooch that has the crystals encrusted in the flowers, you're going to take it to a formal level. You can really pull this in with the accessories; if you want to do some dangle earrings or some really cute shoes with some sparkle. Also consider the fact of where you are going to be. If you're outdoors, you might want to do a wedge rather than a heel so your heels don't go into the ground if you're at a grassy area. And that's how to wear a black dress to an outdoor evening wedding.
