The backstory: We are having a very small wedding on a Thursday in August. I already have my dress for that which I love. A bunch of our friends who aren’t coming the the actual wedding are insisting on throwing us a wedding party the following Satuday. The party will be on the casual to slightly dress-up side. I know I’m not going to wear my wedding dress (way too over the top), but I still want to wear something ‘wedding’-like. The other catch is I also have a strict budget of $220 for this dress. I was wandering eBay when I spotted this dress and fell in love with it. It’s the right price, actually has many elements of my wedding dress and I love it. What I’m wondering is if it would be too fancy/formal for this type of party. Thoughts?

I do think it is a little too fancy (beautiful though). I’d wear something like this (sorry for the giganormous picture):

@renwoman: it’s fancier than slightly dressed-up for sure, but the bride is the star of the show so you can’t go wrong picking any dress imho!

It may be that this dress is too dressed up, but you being the brida CAN in my opinion excell the others if you wish 😉 and how often does that happen? Go for it if you love the dress!!
Here’s some inspiration just bc its fun:

It’s the only time you’ll get a chance to wear it so go for it if you love it. I don’t think it’s too formal for a wedding. It’s cute and fun. You need some rocking shoes with that dress too.
