I think it’s not black enough, and may be too fancy.

@Cheeks225:  I love that dress! If I were you, just show the picture to the bride to see if it is indeed “black enough” for her liking, just to be on the safe side. Do you mind sharing where you found it because now I want to buy it too! lol

@Cheeks225:  I think the dress will look great on you, and it is black enough. The bride is a little out of line dictating what colour you wear, and if she is threatned by you not wearing a solid black dress then she has some issues. I’m not sure if it is too formal, though since I don’t know where you guys are going.

If you’re going out that night, I think I’d want something a little shorter!

@Cheeks225:  I think it could work for black tie, with some fancy shoes and hair & makeup.

I cant get the DB link to work but they have a section on their site calld Little Black Dress that has some cute options.

@Cheeks225:  I think all of them will be totally fine for the bachelorette party. At my bachelorette, I wore a white dress and all the girls wore black and we went out to nice dinner, drinks and for a fun night our on the town. I would have been totally fine with any of my girls wearing this.

I like the top dress you posted in the 2nd round of dress posts – the shorter lace one, but that is just my style!

Not black enough & too formal.

I would also stay away from lace and anything else that could be considered “bridal”.

I think there is no such thing as being too formal! Better to over-dress than under-dress I always say! The dress is gorgeous, and if your bride is having a black tie glamorous NYE party, I think she would love this fashion forward style. Brides DO NOT have a monopoly on lace. I think it borders on not being black enough, but out at night I am sure it will look fine. I would go for it! And then pair it with more casual accessories or costume jewelry to make it extra bachelorette party-ish.

Some nude pumps would look FAB with this on any other night, but a pair of sparkly shoes and chunky statement necklace would make it very appropriate for going out.

As for the model – she looks like a plus size model and the smallest you can be to be “plus sized” is a 12 I think…so she is probably a 12. Did you check to see if the same dress was available in non-plus size, then you could get a 10? But if you are busty like me, I say order the 10-12 size they have and have it altered/taken in at the waist if you need to. It’s better for nude undertoned dresses to not be skin tight anyway 🙂

The bride is NOT out of line for wanting a little black dress party. I think its a great idea and easy to accomodate. That eing said, there is no need to over think this. Its black. Its gorgeous. If the bride is having a NYE wedding and a LBD bachelorette, she oviously has good taste and will love the dress too. You love it? GO  BUY IT!!
