What to Wear

The Angel Ball 6 - Kennedys Angel Gowns

Silver Elegance

Join us for an evening of reflection, support, and resilience as we gather to honor the pregnancy and infant loss journey. To complement the occasion’s significance, we invite you to dress in semi-formal attire focusing on silver elegance.

Why Silver?

Silver symbolizes strength, grace, and resilience—qualities that resonate deeply with the experiences shared at our event. As we come together to celebrate the lives of our precious ones and embrace our journey of healing, silver serves as a reminder of the beauty found in resilience and renewal.

Semi-Formal Attire

For ladies, consider donning a chic silver cocktail dress or a tailored jumpsuit paired with silver accessories for a sophisticated touch. Gentlemen, opt for a classic silver tie or pocket square paired with a sharp black or gray suit, creating a refined and polished look.

Express Yourself

While we encourage attire in shades of silver to reflect the theme of the evening, feel free to incorporate your personal style and flair into your ensemble. Whether it’s a subtle shimmer or a bold metallic statement, let your outfit reflect your unique journey and individuality.

Comfort is Key

Above all, we want you to feel comfortable and confident as you join us for this special occasion. Choose attire that allows you to move freely and engage with others, creating meaningful connections and moments of shared understanding.

Thank you for joining us in honoring our community’s resilience and strength. We look forward to seeing you shine in silver as we embrace renewal and hope.
