Bees, do you think this is appropriate for my SO brother’s wedding?
What do you think about my 3 necklace ideas in combination with the red dress & camel colored pumps? Wedding will be in 3 weeks, simple courthouse wedding in the Morning, only with close family (parents&siblings).
thanks for your feedback ladies!

I really like the elegance of the simple gold chain. It’s understated and very pretty.

the only thing i can see that wouldnt be ideal is the color of the dress. red is a very standout color. so when people will look at photos they will see you more than anyone else. i had a guy at my wedding that wore an orange jacket. it was a casual wedding and cold. but you can spot him in every photo like a sore thumb.
that being said i think it will all look lovely, just be prepared to be able to spot yourself in every photo so dont make any funny faces lol.

@langloiswedding2013: I agree. Bright/vivid colors stand out.
OP, does this dress come in a different color? I think it is very pretty, but you will definately be the one standing out in the photos.

Ditto to those re: the red dress.

Hmm. I love the dress but I can see what PPs are saying re. standing out. Are you wearing a cardigan on top of it? If so I think you’ll be fine as long as it’s not a crazy bright color.
I personally like necklace #2 better, necklace #1 isn’t as special to me (I’d wear it to work). Necklace #3 would go best with the dress IMO.

I love the outfit, I think its adorable! And I like necklace 2
Also, if it’s that small of a wedding, I don’t think you will stick out like a sore thumb. The pictures will have so few people in them, that I don’t think it would be as much of an issue

thank you ladies for all of your feedback!
I was actually worrying about the color – like some of you also mentioned- because I really don’t want to stand out in any way.
I already wore the dress before to a similar wedding (very smalltalk, no photographer,…) but I asked the bride – my thenBFF – before about wearing red. And she didn’t mind at all.
This time we (SO and his family)just all have no idea what to expect and what to wear because it’s all a little bit weird … Oh my … Why couldn’t my boss just simply tell me that I cannot have a day of on the day of the wedding … Haha…

I has people wear red to my wedding they looked great. It’s not like you will be in every photo with the couple anyway, I think it’s a very nice outfit
