Is this wedding appropriate?

Would you wear this to a spring/summer wedding?
I really like it but am worried the shorts are a bit short.
MoltonSilver · 14/09/2020 11:35
Not really, no.
tabulahrasa · 14/09/2020 11:36
I wouldn’t - but not because of the short length... it’s too casual IMO.
But if it’s just the length you think is an issue then you’re fine.
TokyoSushi · 14/09/2020 11:36
No, too short
Sexnotgender · 14/09/2020 11:37
Not really no.
Anthilda · 14/09/2020 11:37
If you have good legs go for it!
frogswimming · 14/09/2020 11:37
Too casual I think. Unless wedding is in a hot country on a beach.
Zengarden001 · 14/09/2020 11:38
No too short and too casual.
RuthW · 14/09/2020 11:38
As long as your legs are covered with tights, I think it would look nice with your hat/fascinator and button hole.
FizzyGreenWater · 14/09/2020 11:39
No. Absolutely not.
It's just... weird. The top half looks like a cheap take on a work suit, so even in that colour, pretty boring and faintly depressing for a wedding. And yes, the shorts are all wrong - not only for a wedding, but also that jacket. It comes far too low relative to the short length and only exaggerates the short-shorts idea. They just don't look as if they are supposed to go together.
I can't imagine what this outfit is for, it doesn't seem to fit any occasion... but especially not a wedding.

Not unless I knew it was a casual wedding. Normally I'd dress more formally for a wedding.
GlamGiraffe · 14/09/2020 11:42
No. Too short (and I'm a big fan of short). Its just not situationaly appropriate.
MysteriesMysteries · 14/09/2020 11:43
Thanks all. I was concerned about the length - but it is a quite a casual wedding: no sit down meal, no church, no day/night all starts at 4pm.
I’m going to be 8 weeks postpartum for the wedding and I’m struggling to come up with ideas.
Back to the drawing board
Catapultme · 14/09/2020 11:46
Ok for casual wedding providing it passes the how much leg can you see when you sit down test
ChequerBoard · 14/09/2020 12:20
I can't see why not as long it's not a really formal wedding. I'd add better shoes though as those sandals in the pic are awful.
ApolloandDaphne · 14/09/2020 12:25
I think for a wedding 8 weeks after birth i would be looking for a comfortable and forgiving dress rather than a tailored shorts suit!
IWouldLikeToKnow · 14/09/2020 13:56
I think it'd be fab for a wedding
[AUTO]d3jqakcn9qlt2 · 14/09/2020 13:58
Yes it's great. I don't understand why people are saying it's too informal? Why?
FizzyGreenWater · 14/09/2020 14:27
Casual wedding - just a nice dress then surely?
Not least because that's what everyone else will be wearing - ok, stand out... but not like a sore thumb
MysteriesMysteries · 14/09/2020 14:32
Apollo I am usually a dress person, but I’m so sick of them I thought a change would help me feel better.
Fizzy it’s really not that bad!! I still quite like the suit
I think with the right heels and styling it could look really nice. But I’m going to keep looking - welcome any ideas.
Kodiak83 · 14/09/2020 17:06
I think it’s super cute and with the right accessories and shoes would be totally fine!
MysteriesMysteries · 14/09/2020 19:11
I thought it was cute too Kodiak I was just concerned about length in the shorts. But now I’m worried I would look like I forgot I was going to a wedding
carlukefair · 14/09/2020 19:12
What about a jumpsuit rather than a dress?
peachypetite · 14/09/2020 19:13
Really random! Go with a dress or jumpsuit.
Katrinawaves · 14/09/2020 19:17
You need to factor in that at 8 weeks post partum you are very unlikely to have a figure like the model. You will probably be around a stone or more over your preferred weight with a soft belly and swollen boobs. Sorry to be brutally honest!
conduitoffortune · 14/09/2020 19:20
I quite like it, but it's a hard no from me for a wedding
