Yes I know this is another what do I wear to a wedding question, but they're fun anyway.
I have a wedding in May to go to, and the theme colors are hot pink and black. It's a big church at 4pm, and I'm not sure the location of the reception, but it might be there as well.
How fancy should my dress be? Like a cocktail dress, or more casual? Would black be ok? I don't know these people well as they're my boyfriend's friends. Also I don't reeeally want to have to buy a new dress, but I'm not sure I have anything that's dressy enough.

Is it the kind of wedding where they ask you to dress to the theme? Because otherwise, you can wear any colour you like. Remember it's a church wedding, so make sure it's not too revealing, or at least tasteful. You can get away with something that's not too dressy if you fancy the other stuff up a bit.
I work at a wedding venue, and I've seen people wear all sorts and look good. A simple sun dress with heels and a clutch is dressy enough for most weddings. But a cocktail dress works well. You want to look like you're making an effort, but remember you not trying to out-do the bride. Just go with something simple and safe.0
