Would it be possible to describe what kind of clothing is appropriate for wedding events that were described as:
A cocktail welcome party-- "dressy casual" ( In California)
Wedding--"formal" (but it didn't say black tie) (In California)
An outdoor wedding where the weather is unpredictable-- it said be aware of the northwest weather conditions (In Portland)
Also, since I rarely have to dress up in my everyday life where do you suggest looking for reasonably priced items or what time of year is best to shop for "occasion wear"? I would like to keep the "formal" outfit under $250 if possible. Is that even reasonable?
