damsel in a dress - 'arielle' dress

just need some opinions really - what do you think of this arielle dress? my brother got engaged at christmas and is planning a summer wedding (but for next yr). i came across this on the web and i like the look of it i think, and that grey is one of my 'colours' i would feel happy in (and could probably accessorise with something brighter?).

now. is it too winter-like for a summer wedding, just how tall and stick thin would you have to be to wear it? i am usually a sz 10, 5'7 but with wide shoulder/hip but smaller middle. however i am pg now (wont be by next summer obviously) but worried in case i get my usual size now and never get back to it, which is entirely possible as third pg! its a bit risky isnt it. but im worried that if i dont at least try it i will always want THAT dress! also is their sizing on the small size does anyone know?
thank you!

LOVE the dress, don't think it is a summer wedding type dress though, sorry. Maybe if it was above knee/knee length?

IME DIAD sizes are pretty true, normally v flattering.

Sorry, not what you want to hear!

Erm, I think it would be a bit of a strange choice for a wedding, especially a summer one. It's more posh evening party IMO.

Imo it's far too OTT and red carpet for a wedding.

The colour and texture are all wrong for a summer wedding.

And it's even not very nice.

Sorry OP.

Sorry but everything about that dress is wrong for a summer wedding. You will look like Morticia Adams if she went out in the sun.

So, in summer 2014? How far post-partum will you be then? TBH I'd wait until after the baby is born before buying.

Yes I will, I just want a bargain I think! baby will be a year old by then, but who knows how big I will be shock

Why not just treat yourself to a fab maternity dress for now? This is rather nice
