Is it ok to wear a denim jacket to a wedding?

My boyfriends mum is getting married next week, I have my outfit ready shown below and did a practice run for my hair and makeup and showed my boyfriend. He says that the denim jacket will make me look very out of place, that I should wear a cardigan. The only cardigans I have are black and will make it look like I'm going to a funeral in my opinion. The denim jacket isn't distressed or anything it is just a plain dark denim jacket that I'd only be wearing if I get cold...

Is it ok to wear a denim jacket to a wedding?

Updates:
I have opted for a cardigan and going to wear the jacket to lunch and dinner the day before the wedding

  • your boyfriend is right... get rid of that denim jacket and go for the cardigan

    or you can still wear a nice cute decorative scarf or not simply wear the dress alone? and spice up the outfit with some jewelry

    • As I said in the post I wouldn't be wearing the jacket during the ceremony. It'll be to go to and from as we are going on a boat to get there.

    • yea but the cardigan /scarf will be a better option

  • I've never been to a way, so take this with a grain of salt. But a denim jacket doesn't seem like something people should wear to a wedding. I could be wrong.

  • It's too casual. If you want to wear something over the dress I think you should go with a cardigan, even if it does happen to look like you could wear it to a funeral

  • Personally I wouldn't. A denim jacket is too casual. It would be as though you were treating the wedding as an informal event. It's not. A denim jacket gives off an unkempt appearance. It's not suitable for a wedding. Your black cardigan would be more appropriate than a denim jacket

    • As I said in the post it wouldn't be worn during the ceremony just to and from.

  • probably not the best idea.. and I'm really sorry but don't you think you should go for some light colours for your dress itself? I mean, isn't it a bad omen or something to wear black to a wedding?

    • No 😂 I don't wear light colors and cannot afford a new dress

    • Show All
    • It was my mums not my boyfriends mums.

      But yeah I'll take It off in the ceremony and the dinner and just carry it around

    • mkayy then. enjoy

  • The whole outfit needs a rethink considering its a wedding.
    To answer the question, its inappropriate to wear a denim jacket to a wedding as its too casual for such an important event unless the couple are getting married in a non-traditional way and will be wearing more casual outfits themselves.

  • Personally I wouldn’t, and your boyfriend would know his mother’s preference...
    do you have a scarf hun? Or could you borrow one?
    If you tie it like a shawl it will add a little colour and warmth

    • My scarves are black and infinite

  • If it's just gonna be for when its cold, just bring the cardigan. The denim jacket seems seriously out of place for a wedding. Also, your boyfriend specifically asked you not to wear the jacket, and it's his moms wedding so I'd take that into consideration. If y'all are just going to a fancy dinner, I'd agree with you but this is a more important occasion and in the case of weddings, appearances do matter. Bring the cardigan or find one you can borrow from someone.

    • Dress isn't what I was asking about there is nothing wrong with the dress.

    • Show All
    • Even if I'm literally not wearing it at the wedding? 🤦🏻‍♀️

    • Do whatever you're comfortable with, though don't be surprised if you feel out of place

  • I would save both that dress and the denim for a different occasion. Something lighter would be more appropriate.

    • I don't really wear them, I prefer jeans and a t.

    • I like my dresses. You can keep your jeans.

  • I think it's too casual. Opt for a cardigan or dressier jacket. Or even a shawl.

  • I think you probably would look quite out of place in it, doesn't seem anywhere near formal enough. But ultimately, what matters most is if you like the way it looks
