This dress is described as it wearable for an evening invite? It is absolutely beautiful but my husband jokingly says I look like the bride...

I agree with your DH.

Can you find similar in a colour?

It's too bridal and too OTT for an evening guest IMO.

Evening do = glam night out wear.

A risky choice...if the bride and/or bridesmaids have gone for a similar style you'll look like one of the bridal party.

If it were dark grey (like pewter colour) rather than dirty rain cloud grey then knock yourself out. However, the colour in the picture looks too bright and would be too close to bridal colours.

It's utterly gorgeous! Buy it anyway and wear it to another function...

Beautiful but you'll look like you should be getting married.

Its beautiful.. but very bridal.

I'd buy it anyway and keep it in the wardrobe for another occasion.

It is gorgeous. But I wouldn't wear it to a wedding your dh is right. It's too much of a bride/ bridesmaid style

But it's beautiful. I love it.

Love the dress, but sorry it's just too bridal, especially as it is strapless. If it came in another colour perhaps?

If someone had have turned up to my wedding in that I'd have been a bit pissed off to be honest. You'll get lots of looks and mutt wrings behind your back. Don't do it.

It is lovely, but too bridal for a wedding.

Far too bridal!

Too bridal I'm afraid. But gorgeous, so buy for another time?

It stunning, you must buy this and just wear it for something else.
