I’d say it depends entirely on fit. If the dress is very short and tight or you are showing a lot of cleavage, then it might be problematic. Otherwise it looks great. As mentioned, there are some places of worship where you’d need a wrap, bolero or a cardigan for the ceremony.

paradisedaze :  it’s lovely and very Halloween! 

The worry about what to wear is ridiculous. My friend thought it was wrong for me to wear white jeans at a hen party because the were ‘too statement….’

as long as you know the bride isnt wearing a black lace detailed dress it should be fine

Oh man, that’s the first I’ve heard of brides being able to dictate which necklines are acceptable (other than, like, boob hanging out levels of low cut). I think it’s gorgeous.

Very pretty! And sorry, but rolling my eyes at the idea that only brides can wear a certain neckline.

I think it’s a beautiful and perfect dress! Don’t worry about the neckline. You can always bring a pashmina and it will look just perfect.

No sweetheart necklines, that’s a new one; add it to the list. The dress is fine.

I’d pair it with a cute bolero jacket, but I give my thumbs up!
