I think they are fine. I’d wear whichever one you feel I should most flattering/comfortable for hanging out and dancing! 

I personally prefer 2 and 4. I personally wouldn’t wear any of them, but I’m in my 40’s, so no longer look good wearing things like that. I would have felt fine wearing 2 or 4 to a wedding when I was in my 20’s

faboflexy :  

I don’t understand ‘taking away from the  bride” , no-one can do that, she’s  the bride ! The issue is are these dresses approriate for a wedding, ( rather than for going to a club or party or work  or whatever . It is the occasion that is the questrion, not competition with the bride.) 

I think they  all all very short and say  ‘look at my legs!”  but as pps have  said, if they  are longer on you than  the model , they’d be Ok .

Perhaps not that strappy open backed one though .

faboflexy :  I think all of them bar the last one are too short for the ocassion even taking in that you are shorter than the models. I like them but all but not for the occasion of a wedding. I’m sure you can find something cute and fun that has more length.

Astra :  bahaha at eye bleach!!!! 😂😂😂😂😂

Yeah don’t understand the going out in public and formal occasions with no undies. I prefer a panty line to being flashed someone vulva or brown eye!!! I think undies would be apart if the checklist when you leave the house… You know phone, wallet, keys, stove is off, doors locked, undies on….check✔✔✔✔

The only one I would maybe wear to a wedding is the last one. The others are a bit too short. I fall into the more conservative wedding attire group of dresses right above the knee or lower.

And who , over the age of 3 , actaully forgets to put on knickers under a short skirt  . And then bends over in  public  . No way that’s an accident . 

People be weird……….

I think 2 or 4 are the best options.  I hate the neckline on number 3.  I don’t think they’re inappropriate for a wedding!

I’d wear all of them. None of them seem inappropriate for a wedding. The first is my personal preference 🙂

elderbee :  haha true….but I don’t think someone’s wedding is a place to get your jollies flashing!!!

Got to admit I admire a girl who can go underwear-less in a dress! I always have to wear a bra to put my boobs where they should be and granny panties that suck my stomach in within an inch of its life!! People would definitely be able to tell without me flashing them that I’m not wearing undergarments!!!😉😉

if it is a church wedding, definately too short. it could be ok with some dark lightweight hose, more formal shoes and a cardigan or bolero with half sleeves
