Hello Bees! Help me out!
My FSIL’s vow renewal/wedding for family is this Saturday, and I have no idea what to wear! It’s a semi-formalish (she told FI to wear something nice, he decided to wear suit pants and a button down) wedding. The groomsmen are wearing Hawaiian shirts. Their colors are blue and champagne (BMs in this color).
Here are my options:
Peachy colored dress, straps need to be shortened.
Blue and white one (is it too white?), has a heart shaped keyhole.
Tealish green one, straps also need shortening, and the skirt’s a bit short for me.
Purpley one. Wondering if this is too dark?
I also have a black dress with small white polka dots that goes with a red belt and shoes, but I felt like that was too much black.

The purple one fits you the best, but the black belt doesn’t do anything for the dress.
The others are not very figure flattering.

I don’t think my outstretched arm contortionist pose helped the fit of the dresses any….
Is there anything else to put with the purple dress? The belt covers up a slightly strange elastic seam waist.

Semi formal but gm are wearing Hawaiian shirts? Huh??? That is sooooo contradictory.
My thoughts.. The peach one makes you look very frumpy and that one and the teal are just not becoming on you.
None are for semi-formal as that would be knee length or below and much dressier.
With Hawaiian shirts style I would say the light blue and white looks best. The purple looks decent too belt that belt does not. A slim white belt would look much better with it. But it’s not semi formal looking by any means.
My personal vote would be none of those but if you had to pick one, the light blue and white.

What about a softer, wide ribbon in the same colour as the pattern in the purple dress?

MrsTtoB: Yeah….the BMs and bride will be formal dresses all the way, and GMs in Hawaiian. I think it was a compromise. I’m not planning it so I’m just going with it. <br /><br />Looks like no matter what I do I’ll have to go shopping. >.<

gillykat824: I actually like the blue and white dress on you! It looks really cute! 🙂

gillykat824: I would do a narrower belt, not white, maybe purple, or if you want to push your style boundaries, a contrasting color like bright pink, turquoise or green and nude shoes. I would cary a clutch bag in another bright color.
