Is this dress appropriate for a wedding...?

Got a wedding next weekend, all day invite. Need to wear something I already own (I have a habit of buying dresses without anything to wear them to..)

Want to wear this dress as ive lost a lot of weight recently and like the fact I can wear things like this, but not sure if its appropriate for a day guest at a wedding?

If it makes any difference, we are the young(ish) pals of the groom so more able to bend the rules and traditions slightly...😂

With a jacket at a push. More for clubbing tbh.

It’s nice but it is very revealing and might not be that comfortable.

Oh gosh no don't do it. It's too much. You probably look amazing in it but not to a wedding.

Ginmakesitallok Sat 28-Oct-17 21:47:12

I wouldn't. Even when I was young and slim I wouldn't.

Not really.

Pattyandbump Sat 28-Oct-17 21:47:21

Not appropriate at all IMO.

I think that it’s a bit - sorry - tarty for a wedding. Even the website talks about ‘turning heads on your next night out’. But each to their own!

Fabulous dress and I'm envious you have the figure to pull it off, but won't you be cold?

ChanandlerBongsNeighbour Sat 28-Oct-17 21:47:57

Too much skin, sorry.

I think its a bit too risque. I think short or backless, but both makes it inappropriate to my taste.

Where's the dress?

I can only see an elaborate hanky in your link??

Maverick66 Sat 28-Oct-17 21:48:40

No! You would stand out but for all the wrong reasons.

Orangebird69 Sat 28-Oct-17 21:48:41

No. Just no.

BrutusMcDogface Sat 28-Oct-17 21:49:02

Bloody hell! No, I'm sorry; it's far too revealing imo. I think you should dress so as not to take attention off the bride, ha! Though you could maybe put a jacket on, as per a pp. if you have the right one, it could sit just on the bow so that it's not covered up.

superking Sat 28-Oct-17 21:49:03

Eeek I don't think so. Looks more like something to wear clubbing. Even with a jacket over it for the daytime it is still very short and tight and just inappropriate for a wedding. Sorry.

MsMarvel Sat 28-Oct-17 21:49:19

Dann, I guessed as much tbh. I do have a few different options, ill just need to put that back in the wardrobe for a different occasion!

ScarletSienna Sat 28-Oct-17 21:49:26

I don’t think so really. Maybe for just the evening part at a push but not as you’re an all day guest. Definitely wear it to show off your achievement but not to a wedding.

SimplyNigella Sat 28-Oct-17 21:49:55

Totally inappropriate and at risk of looking like you're trying to upstage the bride.

Redglitter Sat 28-Oct-17 21:50:11

Nope definitely not for a wedding
