Hi! What would be the proper attire for me to wear to a "small town" relative's Church Wedding at 3pm. Reception: Hotel: 6pm. 18 years old... Probably colder weather, yet I'll be indoors..*60s-70s*

Also, what be proper for my younger teenage sisters?

Thank you!

You'll need to have more information before you decide what's appropriate to wear.

So you need more information like what time it will be etc? It's going to be in a small town, my 2nd cousin.. not sure. i dont really talk to my relatives im just going with my dad, so Id have to ask him what time and where it's at. I'm just wondering what kind of clothes-long skirts or dresses & what color is more appropriate?

Yes, you'll need to know the time of day and where the ceremony and reception will take place to be really sure about what to wear. Ask your dad for the info so you can dress appropriately. It's uncomfortable if your over or under dressed.

A really good guess would be to wear the attire you would to a very nice restaurant. This typically works for those occasions when we don't have all of the information.
