My daughter is getting married in the spring (April 2018) She is planning an outdoor courtyard ceremony with an indoor ballroom reception. WE live in Mississippi. What length dress would be most appropriate for the MOB and MOG for 5 o'clock in the afternoon ceremony?

Thank you!

Hello, again and thanks for your patience. I'm sorry you didn't get an earlier response from one of our experts.

The MOB and MOG dresses for an outside, 5PM wedding, should be tea length (just below the knee or mid-calf), with 3/4 length sleeves.

Colors that are not appropriate for these dresses, are: white, off-white, very light pink or anything close to white, as to not have a color close to the bridal gown, assuming it will be white or ivory. Black is also not an appropriate color for the MOB or MOG, as traditionally, it expresses disapproval of the wedding.

I hope this helps and wish you much good luck on your daughter's upcoming nuptials!

Your satisfaction is my ultimate goal and I welcome any follow-up questions you may have on this subject, at no additional charge.

At the conclusion of our correspondence, your 5-star rating will be most appreciated, as this will enable me to continue to send quality answers to additional clients and receive recognition from the website for my assistance.

Best regards,

Cher
