Irish wedding - correct attire advice please?

Jump to last reply

Hello fellow travellers.
My husband and I plus my son and his partner will be attending the wedding of my son's friend in July on a Friday afternoon. The wedding is in a church at 2pm followed by the reception at Farnham Estate Co. Cavan.
I have absolutely no idea what the correct attire will be for us and am also thinking we will have to sort out some sort of hire for my son who will be backpacking up to that point (and afterwards.)
How formal do ladies dress? Long dresses or cocktail length, hats or not? What style of suit for the gentleman? Any traditions we need to be aware of ?
Any help much appreciated :)
