Is this dress inappropriate for a wedding?
820

humanpotato · 25/06/2022 09:00

My boyfriend said he thinks this dress isn't appropriate for a wedding because it's red? This is new to me? The last two weddings we've been to I've wore red and he didn't say anything. So I'm just wondering what peoples thoughts are is this appropriate?

I don't know what thread this belongs in!

Is this dress inappropriate for a wedding?

I wouldn't wear that to a wedding because of the style rather than the colour. It's too revealing and eye catching so might take attention away from the bride.

I think the colour is the one thing you wouldn't have to worry about with this dress, OP ...

Lol. It’s a bit night out for a wedding

Maybe he’s trying to be polite by saying the colour is the problem, it kind of looks like a flamenco fancy dress costume…

The colour is fine, I’m not sure about the style. If the wedding is in a religious venue I wouldn’t reveal that much skin personally.

Red is nice however that dress is not.

Well, it is nice but its giving off cruise ship lounge singer vibes.

I don't think that dress would be appropriate for a wedding in any colour. Very revealing, very detailed (may compete with bridesmaids). Have you bought it already?

What sort of wedding is it? I can’t see this dress fitting in at many weddings but only you know the attire

It's a bit tacky to be honest l. Tell us your budget and what kind of wedding it is, whether you're a day or evening guest and we'll find something appropriate for you.

What he means is, that dress is minging.

It’s a bit ‘much’ for a wedding and I’m not talking about the colour. I think your DP is trying to gently steer you here and I’d take his advice. Try something a bit less eye-catching.

The dress is a chavy night out dress not a wedding. (Red is fine for a wedding however )

I think he was being polite

If you have the figure for it is an attention grabbing dress so not really appropriate for a wedding. At a wedding it will make you look desperate to draw all attention away from the bride and onto you. Just my opinion but you did ask 😊

It just has too much going on - reminds me of Austrian blinds in the 1980s.

It's not the colour it's the style. I really don't think that's ok to wear to a wedding ( or anywhere really to be honest..) Sorry Op!

Yeah it's not to do with the colour OP. It's the style. It's very "look at me" which isn't really appropriate for a wedding.

Is it solely a black tie/evening event? If not, I think you need something more suitable for wearing during the day. It’s the style rather than the colour that makes it “not wedding-y”.

Are you the groom's ex?

Well, all eyes would certainly be on you. Instead of the bride.

I actually really like that dress, both design and colour, but it’s 100% not wedding-wear. Red is fine for weddings, but it’s the style — it’s too dance floor. You could maybe change into it for the dancing/disco afterwards? My MIL does this — brings an outfit for the day do and eating, then changes after dinner into her dancing dress.

Thanks for the responses 😂 I have ordered it, however I may keep it for the night time and wear something else for during the day.
