  • I wouldn't wear sweat pants but a nice suit would be just fine or just a nice pair of slacks and a pretty blouse.

  • No it is not tacky. Dress it up with some nice pumps and an elegant blouse and you are straight.

  • I don't wear dresses. I wore pants to my mom's 3rd wedding, my aunts wedding, both of my sisters, and my best friend. none of them seemed to care what i was wearing. it was their day. besides, if i dressed up, i would've stolen all the glory. i'm just that good! haha j/k. but really, you wouldn't want to be uncomfortable, i think as long as its not sweat pants ;) you'll be fine :)

  • I think dress pants would be fine. Put all your energy into the blouse or whatever is up top. The only thing I have ever heard of about weddings is dont upstage the bride. So dont wear a white gown or something lady Gaga would wear,,,lol,,,sounds like fun though enjoy!

  • dress pants would be just fine since the weather is turning as long as they're clean and paired with a nice top

  • Dress pants are more than fine...My mom isn't comfortable in anything that shows her ankles, and she almost wore a nice dress suit to MY wedding (which would've been more than fine with me...she wore it to other weddings instead) but ending up finding a long enough dress. If you were to ask my grandmother...she would be MORTIFIED...I had to convince her it was ok to wear a pant suit to my wedding. But no...if you're more comfortable in dressy pants...go for it! Some people look more dressed up and classier in a pant suit than some people in dresses!
