    @ClassicLady:  I’m not sure what you mean about ‘too daring.’ These dresses aren’t too sexy or scandalous? 

    Are you worried about them not being formal enough?

    @ClassicLady:  I don’t see what you think is daring about these gowns, can you elaborate? Unless your family is ultre ultra religious and has a problem with women baring their arms and shoulders I don’t think anyone will be shocked about your dress. But I do think that they might be a little informal for what you’re going for. IMHO the dresses you showed are a little 8th grade formal for me but if you like them and want to wear one then I think you should go for it.

    THat top one is gorgeous! Personally, I would think it’s absolutely FINE if you *were* slightly overdressed. For this particular party, YOU ARE THE BRIDE! So go for it! Wear a dang tiara if you want! 😀

    @ClassicLady:  Do you have a picture of your second reception venue? What’s the dress code you’re requesting for this party?

    My sorority sister eloped; she wore a full on wedding gown to her wedding reception she had 1 year after she was married. No one thought twice. 

    So… I think in this case, the formality of the party will dictate the attire.

    P.S. You could totally style these dresses like Kate Moss, gorgeous!

    I definitely wouldn’t wear a veil though to a second reception.

    @ClassicLady:  I looked at the Saks videos of the dresses you posted. I personally am in love with the second dress! I think that one is the most appropriate for a backyard reception.

    That sale is a great find; good deal on any of those dresses!

    Well, my suggestion is always that if you don’t know the dress code, dress slightly more formally/conservatively than less. You always feel more awkward in an outfit which is too casual rather than one which is too formal.

    @ClassicLady:  I don’t think any of them would be too formal. The dresses you posted don’t seem to have trains, so I think they would be perfect for the type of reception you described.
