    My opinion you will stick out like a sore thumb but if you are that type that cares less what other think cause you are different then go for it. I wouldnt wear it though.

    I don’t think it would stick out at all, so long as it’s at least as long as the one in the photo I think it’s completely approrpiate.

    To me, it looks a little casual, and therefore could be deemed “inappropriate”.

    You still have some time until the wedding, I would go out and buy yourself a new dress. Because it is the end of summer (and coming to the end of wedding season) many dresses which are designed to be worn to weddings are being discounted for the end of the season, so you can find some great deals.

    I think it’s perfectly appropriate! What material is it made out of, though? That might be a big factor, if it’s cotton versus satin or silk?

    I just got my grandmother’s that she wore to a military ball… not asian/chinese- and it is gorgeous. i think that is modern looking enough to blend, and could also be a good conversation starter since you won’t know everyone 🙂

    I agree that depending on the fabric, it’s fine. Give a shopping trip a try, and if you can’t find anything, just wear what you have. Really, I don’t think anyone will care. It’s not offensive at all.

    i would pair it with nice fancy jewels, hand bag, heels and shawl.. i think if you are comfy and love the dress then it should be fine.. heck ive seen tons of pics with people showing up in tshirts/polos/jeans..i think the fact that you are dressing up is fine!

    I think with some accessories like a bracelet or scarf, it would be fine, as long as it’s no shorter than the one in the photo.  I don’t think you’d stick out like a sore thumb. It’s definitely not a common look at Western weddings but uncommon is not a bad thing.

    I love it… I always think this is a ‘classy’ kinda style to wear for any occasion.. but that’s just my humble opinion!
