Too short for a wedding?

Is this dress too short for a wedding? I really like it but think there may be too much leg on show. What do you think?

I was expecting something really short. I think that's fine for a wedding...although I'd wear some tights for a bit of nice colour on my legs (or have a light fake tan).

It's short for me so I wasnt too surs.
Yes I agree with tights, my legs are shocking.

Depends if you're running around after a toddler or not. If not it's perfectly fine, if you are I'd think twice or be very careful. The last wedding I went to loads of the 'younger set' were wearing dresses much shorter,. One woman was wearing a dress the same length as yours and it was fine when she was standing still, glass was f wine in hand, not so great when lifting her DD up or bending over to her. I don't think a single person there wasn't far too familiar with her knickers by the end of the day.

I've worn way shorter than that to a wedding, but I guess it depends on the type of wedding it is grin

Looks fine to me.
Its longer than I was expecting too.

No need for tights if it's a nice day. Not being tanned is not a sin. Make sure your legs are moisturised and that's job done.

Hmm, I do have a toddler. Will I remember to bend my knees elegantly?
