    I think the purple (#4) is definitely the most classic.

    Third one is too casual.  Green is fine for a summer wedding of ordinary formality (and during the day).  Either of the black ones will suit pretty much any situation, so I’d go with one of those.  Polka dots more summery, and a little less formal.  Bottom one a bit more evening, but still perfectly viable for the day time.  I’d probably go with the bottom one.

    I love #2. #4 is pretty, though…just typical. I also like #3, but it could be too casual if the wedding is at night. I don’t like #3 at all.

    I think they all seem fairly casual. I think you should do some online shopping. I would suggest popsugar.com. You can search by dress type, brand, and price point. It will return a results to you from boatloads of merchants. You should search for a peplum midi dress. I think that would look flattering on your figure.

    @MrsBeck: They all look too casual in my opinion.  I would go with the dressiest (4)

    I got my graduation dress at TJ Maxx. I love that store. But I also frequent Marshalls and Nordstrom Rack.

    Of the four, I’d say the last one is the most appropriate but it is still a bit on the casual side   depending on the time of the wedding. The other black one could work depending on the wedding’s start time.  The other two are too casual to me.

    I like #2 most, but I think they can all be dressed up!

    @MrsBeck:  Solid is more formal, in general.  The particular print is quite informal – a floral or something more traditional would be more formal, in general.  The rules are not quite as defined for women’s clothing as for men’s.

    Green or Purple. I personally like the green one because I like the color.

    @MrsBeck:  I would go with the green or purple. They both are stunning on you and the green is very summery, fun and wedding appropriate and the purple is just a classic elegant nightime event attire. 

    The multi color seems too casual to me and the polka dot one doesnt fit you as well and seems a bit more “business attire, business casual” than wedding event to me. 

    Great choices though, you would be fine if you showed up to a wedding wearing any of them – I just like the green and purple most on you. 🙂

    I think any of these dresses could be dressed up with the exception of the first one. I like that one, but it’s really casual. I disagree that the third one is too casual. If you pair it with a belt and heels, it will look fine. If you’re not happy, I’d reccommend looking at express. They have a lot of dresses in all different styles.
