I will be attending a wedding reception tonight at a restaurant in Chicago called Salvatores.
I am debating between two dresses. The first one is more casual, but I’m not sure of what attire I should wear (I don’t want to be too dressed up). I REALLY like the first one, and think I could dress it up with some silver heels…The pic I found online is of the designer wearing it and it looks better on me (hope that doesn’t sound bad, but it looks terrible on her!)
The second is a black dress (lower left in pic) I got at White House Black Market—I worry it’s too dressy.
You tell me!
One last question: If i wear the black one, can I just do drop earrings and no necklace?
Thanks fellow bees!!

I voted black with just simple accessories – It is always better to be a little over dressed than underdressed!

The blue one looks too casual for an evening wedding.

I voted for the blue… where I come from if you wear black it´s like your going to a funeral… bride and groom won´t be so happy.
But if that´s not important for you, I would allow myself using the dressy one, because it´s an evening wedding
I hope that made sense!

I’d go with black and have fun accessories! The blue is a bit too casual especially for an evening wedding. I think most places it’s perfectly acceptable to wear a black dress to weddings particularly in the evenings.

The black one. You won’t be overdressed.

I voted black too – you’ll look perfect. I agree with Future Mrs. Martin – being overdressed is always better. In any case, it’s a sign of respect that you took the wedding reception seriously enough to dress for it.

Black dress. Skip the necklace–a nice pair of drop earrings will look lovely.

The black dress with drop earrings and no necklace will be perfect for a reception at a restaurant in Chi-town.

Blue! I’m always for more casual. Unless it’s a super-fancy restaurant.

I voted black, the blue looks a little too casual and I dont think the black is too dressy, its really cute.

Either one. Dress it up with jewelry and hot heels, and you’re set! Have fun! 🙂
