Hmmm, personally, I’m not sure I’d be comfortable in it because it’s quite short, and also strapless. I think that if it were longer or had straps (one or the other) it would be a bit more appropriate for a wedding.

I’d wear it. Smile  It looks short but that could be because it’s on a tall, leggy model, right?

Not for 4 oclock in my opinion.

Personally I would not. I wouldn’t wear red to any wedding. I would save this dress for date night or something along those lines.

@asandy: The fact that you’re stressed about whether to wear it or not, suggests that maybe you should opt for a different dress. I once wore a pretty sexy dress to a wedding, and I felt VERY uncomfortable in it. Every one of my friends at that wedding told me it looked great and not to worry about it, but I did feel a little weird being around grandparents, family members, seniors etc. I wished I had worn something a bit more conservative. And my dress had straps, was a bit longer, was bright turqoise, and was tight.

@asandy:  That’s a pretty dress.  But (to me) it’s for a night out or a cocktail party – not a 4 pm wedding.

The etiquette regarding whether or not to wear the dress has to do with 1.) is it of the appropriately formal for the event?    2.) Could anyone think that you are attempting to divert attention from the bride and/or the bridal party by choosing to wear this dress? 

I’d describe that dress as cocktail attire, thus semi-formal, so unless you’ve been given guidance otherwise the formality is fine. BUT it is a little revealing for a late afternoon ceremony, and it’s a bright color.  At some weddings guests would fit right in wearing a short, strapless dress – but your hesitation makes me think that the one you’re attending isn’t going to be one of those weddings.

I vote: save that dress for an event where it will be appreciated, find another cute outfit that is a little more subdued for this event.

the very fact that you’ve got doubts gives you an answer. If it were my wedding I’d think you were trying to steal the show. Remember its not YOUR day its someone else’s. just be simple! Its boobs or legs, not both

And why all the alterations since buying it? why the stress? what’s your motive ? Sorry but NO is my answer x
