    My mom would say navy blue not okay. But she's a traditionalist.

    My Chinese friends told me not to wear all black or all white.

    Yes agree with solidstars, blue not ok as it represents death or something like that. I wore blue to my wedding (as the wedding gown was just too uncomfortable to party with my friends in) and MIL had a heart attack when she first found out and then strongly tried to discourage it.

    Thanks everyone. Had a lovely time. Went for black dress and red jacket. There were a lot of people in black and a lot in red.
