Is this ok for an autumn wedding?

Be kind with me I'm not often in S&B. We are going to a wedding in October. It's reasonably low key, I have my "wedding" outfit that I can wear but I have worn it twice never liked it that much to begin with and want to wear something different. however I hate paying for stuff that I wear rarely so thought that this might do the trick.
I tried it on and its really nice ( not as nice however as the imminently unsuitable for weddings black knitted dress I ended up buying wink) I'm a size 14 and it's quite flattering and although its black I think I could get away with it because of the flowers.
What think you? ( Quivers behind sofa)

It's really lovely. I'd wear it, definitely.

I can imagine it with a short black jacket with ruched shoulder pads and some leather gloves, and some wedge heels

Yes, definitely should look ideal, suitably accessorised. Colours are autumnal in a good way - should be just right. And the style looks easy to wear - again, in a good way.

Thanks petaluma, I had a rake through my wardrobe this morning and discovered that a dress that I had worn to a wedding a few years ago actually is really nice on ( think all the running I have been doing has reduced my hips) so I don't need to get it now.

Oh sorry and thanks to polyhymnia as well
