Though we may kid about upstaging the bride with a killer Christopher Kane corsage dress or simply by being your sparkly, Daisy Buchanan-esque self, there are still a set of rather rigid fashion rules to which one must adhere.

Me: "Okay, sure, but keep that to yourself and out of your outfit, friend." While nearly everybody advises against black, this is 2017, and depending on your location/how shady your relatives are, I am extremely confident you could get away with non-funereal (major key alert) black-as in something lacy or with enough sheen to make it celebratory vs. gloomy.

So compromise with a block heel (bonus: won't wreck the lawn) or a fancy flat (so chic in a retro-hostess type of way).
