I’m confused as to why people think you can’t wear a white dress, it’s not a wedding? The dress in the photo is quite classy in my opinion, so if it looks like that I think it’ll be lovely! Add a statement necklace and some nice heels and I think it’ll be perfectly appropriate 🙂

I think the white dress looks simple but that means it would be very easy to dress up with pumps and some statement jewelry! That could easily be transformed into semi-formal. To me, semi-formal is a step below cocktail so I don’t think you’re obligated to wear a cocktail dress.

DappledDuchess :  Another option is to wear your dress with a printed short scarf; it is a classic and elegant look; very appropriate for the occasion. Add brown or black pumps, and you’re good to go! The scarf below is from H&M, at $9.99:

Girl, go find yourself a Ross! If you are a military family, you are always going to need some dressy clothes for these types of things. I must have 15 dresses (cocktail to ball gowns) from Ross, some were less than $10! Get a few stretchy ones in case you get pregnant again. And one pair of dressy but conservative  shoes that go with anything. 

And don’t knock Goodwill! My nicest dress coat with a real fox fur hood came from Goodwill. 

Keep your eyes peeled for good deals and stock up when you can. You’ll always need them.
