    I think it would be fine EXCEPT for the fact that it seems very short.. I don’t think anyone should wear anything above the knee at a wedding. [at the very least, JUST above the knee].

    But that’s my opinion!

    I think it’s too short for a wedding, and depending on the level of formality, might not be dressy enough.

    I really like that dress, but it may be a little too short?

    Personally, I think it’s too short; I personally wouldn’t go any shorter than perhaps 2 inches above the knee for a formal event, and even that is pushing it IMO.

    However, formal means different things to different people; to everyone I know, formal would mean knee-length, and it would be frowned upon if you wore something like that. For other people, that dress might be considered formal. But I’d probably err on the side of caution and wear something longer.

    There’s something about it that’s saying “beach” to me. I don’t know if it’s the shortness or something about the fabric or the loose hair and bare feet. If it’s the latter, of course it’ll resolve itself when you actually wear it and have shoes and a different ‘do. But I can’t quite put my finger on it.

    I like it but it seems short.  Maybe something a few inches longer.  It does look great on you!

    I think it is too short and tight for a wedding. More of a Bach party dress/clubbing dress

    @lolot:  Definitely too dressy for a barn wedding.
