What do you make of this for a summer wedding outfit?
I think it's gorgeous, but agree you'd need to be slim to suit that shape, especially the boxy top; if you're busty it'll look out of proportion. I don't think you necessarily need to be tall though; I wear maxi skirts all the time and I'm 5'3".
It didn't occur to me that it would be informal but I would feel 'naked' without something extra to cover me iyswim? It's not an informal wedding from what I gather of the venue and the guest list but they're not European royalty
I was shocked at one or two outfits the young wore to my DD's church wedding, most looked lovely, loads of stunning hats and high heels (which they could walk in!) but there were one or two who IMO were inappropriate eg a playsuit which was not much longer than groin length with spaghetti straps, there was not much more to it than a swimsuit! I know when my DD went to a catholic wedding in Italy there was no admittance without covered shoulders and I was also brought up to believe this was disrespectful but I wouldn't think the outfit OP showed was inappropriate just not very weddingy. My DCS went to a lovely hippy vibe civil wedding in a field where that outfit would have been suitable. Tell us more OP!
