Not too casual at all, especially when it's glammed up. It's gorgeous. So many color options to go with as well to match

That's a lovely dress. You've made me order it in jade.

Sorry, I hate to throw a spanner in the works, but I think it is too casual.

I've just brought the same dress in a different pattern and I wouldn't wear it to a wedding, sorry but think the material and pockets now it too casual.

Too casual for me too, but it depends on the wedding.
I really don't see how it can be glamourised.

It's the jade I have grin

Ooh I love that Oasis dress, you've made me want to buy it!

I saw some nice dresses on prettykittyfashion.co.uk not dissimilar to the oasis one but more reasonably priced. I'm going to get one for a wedding I'm going to in August.

Oh that oasis dress is lovely. Can you borrow a dress or borrow a bag to bring costs down?
I'm struggling to think how you could dress up either of the Next dresses.

I dont think the first dress is too casual as you are only going to the evening do not the full day. Have you got a hairdresser friend you could rope in to do your hair to make you look a bit more polished?

Lots of lovely dresses of that sort for not much money in the Asos.com wedding guest section.

I also think that the next one is too casual and I like robots suggestions . There are lots more on ASOS

Don't waste money on a new bag, just borrow one . Failing that, get a cheap one from primark or new look .

It's a bit daft to economise and spend £25 on a dress that needs " dressed up " , so you then pay to get your hair and nails done and buy new shoes and bag .

When you could spend £35-40 on a dress that really suitable and use sandals/ shoes and bag you already have . Seriously , don't you have a single pair of shoes that are suitable for a wedding ? It's not 1950, they don't have to match .

I'd hold off and try to buy the Oasis one in the sale. I'd also wear it every chance I got. It would be lovely with a pair of simple flat sandals on a hot day.

Sorry but I think the Next one is verging on too casual too. Depends on the fabric though sometimes. Some cottons will look like a limp dishrag after an hour and other will hold their shape and look better quality as a result.

I do prefer that one.

Have you considered ebay?

Lweji Mon 09-May-16 14:07:28

To buy or sell after the one use.
