I think it’s really beautiful. But, there’s no doubt that it will be an attention grabber.  I’m also thinking that it looks like it would belong on someone in the bridal party–like a MOH.

 Are you close to the bride to be? If so, talk to her and show her the dress, have her help you decide.  If you aren’t close to the bride, you should really think about it.  Have you showed your SO or SO’s mom?

I think it is beautiful – but I concur it looks a little BM/MOH-ish …

If those are the guidelines that the bride gave you – I say go for it if you can feel confident rocking it!

I think that it’s a combination of the color (although pretty) and the style.  Maybe you should look at something with less embroidery, maybe less ‘dramatic’. I also think the other issue with this dress are the straps.  Although it is different & sexy, maybe you should look at dresses with two straps, maybe a halter? Or strapless?  I know you said it is a formal wedding, but what about a cocktail length?
