Ok, I tricked you a bit. not a wedding dress poll but it is a dress poll technically 😀
what can i say? I need opinions
I was invited last minute to an opera this weekend. so i try on all my dressy dresses and they are all WAYYY too big (recently lost 30lbs). but I have one I wore on our honey moon (the thinnest I have been besides right now) but itis still crazy big. If I wear a tight cardigan with it, it holds it up though and I think it might work. bunches a bit in the back and sides though…
So, can I wear this dress to the opera with black tights and gold shoes? which way should I wear the cardigan? front hanging or tied tight in the back? Or should I wear this chiffon black top and skirt? Or do I need to go to my local dress barn and get something that fits off the rack?
Sorry I dont have a full length mirror, this is the best I can do:
Blue dress, black cardigan tied tights
Blue dress, black cardigan hanging in front
Black chiffon top and skirt

I think the blue dress with the tight cardigan looks nice, buuuuut if you can swing it, a new dress is always fun!

Definetly the first option is better, but a new dress would be even better 🙂 congratulations!

I would do the first option with a formal-looking hairstyle (long curls, bun with a sparkly pin, etc) and dangly earrings to dress it up!
