@heavenparadise01:  You should be fine.  I don’t think there is as much of an issue wearing red to a wedding as there used to be. Or wearing black for that matter.  The rule about white still holds true unless you have a really cool bride like myself (I put my entire bridal party in white and encouraged the parents to do the same.)

I say go for it, BUT if it were me I’d have the slit lowered. My eyes about bugged out of my skull when I saw the dress, but I live in an area where that dress probably wouldn’t be as acceptable. At least I’ve never seen someone where something like it, but perhaps its different on the east coast.

Just my 2 cents 🙂

I would get the slit lowered a LOT, like to mid-thigh or just above the knee. But it looks like a very subdued red!

That’s beautiful and I would say very appropriate…if you lower the slit. I like the red dress the most of those shown.

@heavenparadise01:  I actually really like that dress! I’d get the slit lowered, but wearing red to a wedding is totally ok, particularly in the fall/winter months. Plus, it’s not a bright, bright red – it looks more subdued.

Like pp’s have suggested I would lower the slit. Lovely colour.
