Q & A: Can You Wear Black To a Jewish Wedding?

Posted by The Mrs.

Question: Can you wear black to to a Jewish wedding?
Answer: This is a question frequently asked by guests who have never attended a Jewish wedding. The answer is a resounding “Yes!” While it may be perceived to be bad luck to wear black to weddings in some cultures, this is not the case with Jewish weddings. While there is no specific dress code for Jewish weddings, be sure to dress more modestly if you are attending an Orthodox Jewish wedding–meaning avoid wearing a low cut necklines and mini skirts. It is preferable that you wear attire with longer sleeves and hems to an Orthodox Jewish wedding.
