Do you think this dress would be appropriate for two semi formal weddings in October? I heard from someone recently that wearing a sweetheart neckline as a guest was frowned upon. It’s the first time I’ve heard that! I also worry the pattern may seem “lingerie-ish” but I’m in love with this dress and would love to wear it.

I think it’s fine! brides already have a monopoly on white, they can’t have it on a neckline too ! 😉

It’s fine. The “supposed” rules for guests’ choice of dress is getting absurd.

It’s a very pretty dress! I don’t see how it can possibly be an issue.
I recently went to a wedding and ended up wearing a dress I didn’t love because while I was shopping for a dress I kept convincing myself that there was some reason I couldn’t wear certain dresses for some ridiculous reason or other. And then I was at the end, in this dress I was very “meh” about, and other girls were wearing dresses that had aspects of it that were reasons why I didn’t choose certain dresses. Like there was this one dress that was white with a floral design, and I decided that it had too much white to wear to a wedding. And then several ladies at the wedding were wearing a floral dress with a white background. And there were several similar instances. I realized I was being totally silly, and I let my self-consciousness get the better of me and I ended up wearing a dress I didn’t really like.
Basically what I’m trying to say is that I think people worry too much about what a guest at a wedding can and can’t wear. Sure, don’t wear a pure white dress or something very revealing. But beyond that, don’t overthink it and wear what makes you feel good. No one else will care, and it’s likely that others will wear similar dresses anyway.

It’s not church appropriate (bare shoulders and looks too short) but with a jacket, shawl or cardigan I think it’s passable. A lot of churches are totally relaxed about this though and wouldn’t see a problem (if the ceremony is even at a church in the first place).
Sweetheart neckline being frowned upon is something I’ve never heard, the only thing would be if the dress code dictates no bare shoulders.

annelise210516 : Well, that depends on the church. I’ve been to plenty of churches where that dress wouldn’t be a problem. And not all weddings happen in a church anyway.
paradisedaze : I love the dress! It’s perfect for a wedding!
