    Default "Etiquette" Question for Ceremonies

    So... just got the evite for the Imaging Awards Ceremony, and I'm a little bit miffed. Every other year it's been part of the Degree ceremony where people would wear pretty formal attire. Then i read this:

    "If you plan to attend and receive your recognition—and possibly win the Grand Imaging Award during this special event—please RSVP by December 15, 2010. The dress code for the night is festive business casual. All Photographers of the Year will be recognized on stage during the Grand Imaging Awards."

    Well, of course I already ordered (and have!) my dress - emerald green, formal. How inappropriate would I be if I wear it anyway? Since honestly, I think these dress code changes should have come out at least a month ago. I'm not talking about an ostentatious ball gown here, but it's certainly not "business casual" either.

    Better yet, anyone else want to overdress with me?

    Stephaine, by all means wear it. Put the others to shame. It's ALWAYS better to be over-dressed and look great than to be under-dressed and look a fool.

    Emerald Green does not preclude meat. Rotten meat turns green.

    I vote with the dress! I vote to keep the whole thing formal always and forever! What's with the casual Friday? Going casual as the whole industry? (crank me up, I get going)

    everything used to be so elegant, felt like a really special event.
    i hate the dumbing down of this important occasion for so many fellow photographers.
    i guess they wanted it available to everyone with out buying a ticket, just stroll in from the tradeshow and have a seat with your shopping bags. attendance was probably on the decline.

    I vote for keeping it upscale. The neck bling looks much better against a formal background.

    Ok, I will definitely wear the dress. Even if I only have Mezzo-Bling at the moment (in a color which clashes with emerald.) Thank you for all indulging my girliness, and my ego.
