I love the Warehouse one. The petrol one is very smart and would def work for a wedding with pretty accessories. Don't like the other two.

Sorry was not v clear - I like the Warehouse one and would wear it to a wedding smile I think the two ASOS ones will look cheap IRL, going by my experience with ASOS dresses.

The petrol one is very elegant. Don't like the Warehouse one at all.

I like the petrol dress. I don't like the colour of the Warehouse one. Not keen on the Asos dresses.

Petrol blue is definitely the nicest. Love it.

sweetheart Thu 24-Oct-13 16:15:16

hmmm ok - my problems with the petrol one are - it's a bit plain and it's quite tight fitting so mucho drunken dancing might be an issue - and there just isn't quite enough boobage (trashy I know!)

sweetheart Thu 24-Oct-13 16:15:26

I love the colour though!!!

sweetheart Thu 24-Oct-13 16:16:11

The red asos one is very thick material and very good quality - the burgundy one is a little but slaggy blush it's made of body con material.

The petrol blue one is definitely the best of the bunch. The others are a bit tarty short for a wedding.

Another vote for the petrol blue dress. I don't like the others, sorry.

Wishfulmakeupping Thu 24-Oct-13 16:23:53

Yes petrol one is the nicest love the colour

sweetheart Thu 24-Oct-13 16:30:22

ok so what would you do to the petrol one to make it less work wear and more wedding wear?

SirChenjin Thu 24-Oct-13 17:00:14

I don't really think it's work wear tbh, but I think the right shoes and accessories will make it look more wedding-y. Yellow, bright pink, silver, cream, dark purple etc all go well - colour suggestions here

defo the petrol with big statement necklace and killer heels, accessorize with glamour in mind then no workwear in site? could contrast tights colour if ur wearing them, worn with shoe boots would look v cool

I like the Warehouse dress the best, shame it's a bit short! The blue one is more wedding-y but I find it a bit boring/ageing.

polyhymnia Thu 24-Oct-13 23:19:37

Agree with others blue one only really suitable one - others too tarty - but needs accessorising with stylish shoes and clutch in interesting colours/textured and funky necklace to make it not too staid.

Number 4 is by far the best.
1 and 3 definitely too short for a wedding - wedding clothes should be classy, not nightcluby IMO.

sweetheart Fri 25-Oct-13 11:51:13

I think the warehouse one looks short because the model is tall. It is deffo longer on me than the picture shows.

janmoomoo Fri 25-Oct-13 14:57:38

Yes number four is best. The ASOS ones are a bit young - maybe you are young?

sweetheart Fri 25-Oct-13 15:24:57

I'm 32 - does that count as young? not according to my teenager daughter who thinks I'm ancient! lol

MollyMango Fri 25-Oct-13 19:02:13

I don't think black is suitable for a wedding - definitely the petrol one!

buttercrumble Fri 25-Oct-13 19:07:39

The last one , the first 3 are a bit tacky for a wedding

MyBoilsAreFab Fri 25-Oct-13 19:12:43

Another vote for the petrol blue one. I'd vamp it up a bit with shoe boots, maybe some subtly patterened tights, and some statement black jewellery - necklace and cuff, some strong lippie and off you go!

ArtDecoGirly Fri 25-Oct-13 19:30:14

Yep, out of the four, the last one is the only one suitable for a wedding. The middle two would look alright in a nightclub... not really elegant enough for a wedding...
