Is black acceptable to wear at a wedding?

I am going to my sister in laws wedding at the end of this month and I really can’t wait. It’s going to be such an amazing day, not only for the bride and groom but the guests too, as they are the most wonderful couple.

In my usual style, I’ve left buying an outfit a little late but with two kids in tow it can be a little stressful to go out shopping! I managed to find a spare few minutes and went into a shop and found a beautiful floor length dress, with a fishtail bottom and a lace bodice. The only issue is that the dress is black (apart from the bodice which is nude with black lace on top).

The question is, can I wear it to the wedding? The church bit starts at 1pm and then we go off for dinner and dancing until midnight-ish. It is a lovely dress and I think I want to wear it as it actually fitted me! I was convinced that I wouldn’t be able to get it over my derrière but I was surprised to see that I could and zip it up too!

I can’t post a picture of it but if I accessorise with a little nude bolero or/and have a bright clutch bag, do you think it would be ok? I know, we aren’t in the 50’s anymore, so it should be ok, right? Lol
