    Wow. That is a hecka formal RD. I think your dress is DIVINE! And just fine. Wear nice heels, get your hair french twisted up or some sweet curls and you’ll be formal enough! i mean, you couldn’t get much more formal unless you wore a black cocktail dress. I love that that dress is baby blue and you’ll stand out by the way. Do not worry, keep what you have. You love it, that’s enough. Have your FI wear a matching tie =]

    It’s so cute!!  I’m not sure if by "formal," she means you need to be wearing a long dress, but I definitely think you can dress up the one you have!  Wearing nice heels and a capped cardy over it I think would dress it up.

    I think your dress is great and perfectly formal! Do you know where the RD is being held? Could you maybe visit the place or look at their website to gauge the level of formality? Luckily, the dress wasn’t *that* expensive, so unless you’re on a super tight budget, you should be able to buy another dress if you want something more formal. Could you show the dress to your FMIL and ask her what she thinks? I think that would be the best route. Or maybe as her what she’s wearing. Honestly, though, I love that dress and think it’s just fine 🙂

    I can’t vouch for sure on the formality level and whether or not your dress would be appropriate (although…it’s a dress — in my books, that’s formal enough unless we’re talking ballgown-formal!), so I would encourage you to ask your FMIL. However, I love that dress too, and I could see why you’d want to wear it anyways! =)

    I totally think you should wear the blue dress. It’s gorgeous. who wants to have SUCH a formal RD? I think FMIL should chill and not plan something so formal.

    It’s a cute dress!

    And I think it can be pretty formal with the right accessories.

    I say stick with it.  You do *not* want to be me and buying your RD dress 11 days before and then rushing to the tailor the next day.  You have plenty of other things to worry about in the next 3 weeks!

    I think the dress is great! And you could definitely dress it up with your accessories, hairs, shoes, make-up, etc. But I suppose it wouldn’t hurt to ask the MIL just in case, especially if she’s particular 😛

    I love your original dress and I say wear it. You’re the bride, you should get to wear whatever makes you happy and comfortable!

    I think you could go either way! If you are creative you could dress up the light blue dress to make it more formal…or you could use it for the day after brunch (I like that idea a lot!).

    That dress is fine. I LOVE it. Dress it up with jewlery. I’m thinking pearls. Wear heels and panty hose. Carry a nice clutch. You will look great. I like the other bee’s suggestions of nice hair. A twist or curls would look great. I might buy that dress it’s so great!

    I definitely think that dress is dressy enough to wear if your FI wears a suit.  I think it’s totally cute and will look perfect.
