A country wedding is so beautiful especially in the wine country. The average temperature in Calistoga in April is around 72 degrees. However the temperature can drop in the evening so it can get cool if the event is outside. Country weddings are usually more informal than city weddings. However weddings are to celebrate making it alright to dress up in a cocktail dress or a maxi dress. Separates such as a skirt or pants and a dressy top would also be appropriate for a ranch country wedding. Think about something colorful. Any simple outfit can be dressed up by adding a piece of statement jewelry and /or a beautiful clutch bag. Bring a wrap to keep warm and dancing shoes (low heel or high heel sandals) that you will be comfortable in. You have many choices but don’t go overboard.
Can I wear a cocktail dress to a morning wedding? It is at 10 AM.
A morning wedding is beautiful but usually it is not as dressy as a late afternoon or evening wedding. A simple style dress such as a sheath with a statement necklace would be more appropriate than a cocktail dress in the morning. As for color something colorful or in a neutral color is more upbeat than head to toe black since it is a daytime ceremony. Of course white is not an option since it is reserved for the bride. Solid colors or print dresses are options in a length that flatters you. A knee-length dress is usually better than a longer length dress for a morning wedding. A suit, pants and jacket or a skirt with a dressy top, for example a silk blouse, would also be in good taste for a morning wedding. The definition of good taste is something flattering on your body shape / type, not to tight, not too short and not to low-cut.
