I'm 22 and have been to 1 wedding but I was a kid. I dont know much about the dos and don'ts for wedding guest outfits.
Is this an alright outfit to wear or is it too colourful? Too short?

I love that but I'm notorious for an obscure dress sense smile

It's ummm unusual??? Not to my taste really.

I would be absolutely blown away if you order it and it turns up looking like that.

Also no.

I would say the combo of frilly, colourful and short might be a bit too much.

I think you could get away with any one of those characteristics but all together I would say sorry OP I think you can do better.

What website is that? It's not a pic of a real dress, it's massively edited or just a graphic.

I wouldn't have worn the left hand one to a wedding, no. I think definitely too short.

What's the one on the right? Nice colour.

Seriously? No.

It's a bit too flamboyant in my opinion.

If you can carry off wearing a dress like that go for it but for parties, clubs etc not a wedding.

With such a bold, eye catching choice there's a bit too much risk of potentially upstaging the bride - which isn't the done thing.

What's the vulva in a cage thing in the right hand photo? I want one!

Knockoneofftheshelftowin Fri 24-Sep-21 18:18:46

Is it a big fat gypsy wedding? If so yes.grin

Sophie1029734 Fri 24-Sep-21 18:19:55

Is this okay? And no I dont know what is acceptable because I have no clue about weddings.. at all. I dont also dont wanna go for something really mature and typical.

Is this a nice outfit?
Is it the lengtht, what's the typical length people wear?

That's really not was I was expecting Bluntness to say.
It's not really appropriate OP.

That one is too blue.

That looks like an 8 year olds dream of a dress that she will wear when she’s grown up.

It’s awful, tacky, cheap looking and the perfect thing g to wear if you hate the bride and want to ruin her wedding photos.
