Wondering what to wear?
The time period for the Holiday Ball is loosely defined as “Victorian,” or roughly the mid-1800s to the early 1900s. Ball gowns or day dresses for ladies, and tailcoats or military uniforms for gentlemen are very appropriate. If you do not have period attire, that’s okay, too! Modern formal wear, such as modest evening dresses (no mini skirts, please) for ladies and dark suits and ties for gentleman, is quite welcome.
