This June my boyfriend and I are going to attend our friends wedding. I had bought this dress awhile back and I really like it, and thought this could be the occasion to wear it. I was wondering if this is appropiate to wear to a wedding as a guest? I suppose im only asking cause ive never worn a backless dress before like this haha
I though maybe i would put a sweater over it to cover the back during the wedding ceremony?

I think it would depend on how short it is on you, I wouldn’t wear shorter than knee length at a wedding but if it’s not too short then it’s ok. It’s really pretty! I could never get away with braless though!

It really depends on your friends, and the formality of the wedding. What are the men expected to wear to this wedding?

Looks good to me! Usually I am of the crowd that says, if you have to ask, the answer is no. However, I think this is absolutely appropriate (assuming you didn’t buy it in white or ivory, ha ha), and the sweater during the ceremony is only necessary if it is taking place in a church.

@amberdk: I think it’s a really cute dress, and I wish I had the courage to go backless!
I think it would be fine, but, as you mentioned, maybe wear a cardigan or something over it for the ceremony (especially if it’s a religious ceremony, as some churches seem to be quite specific regarding appropriate attire).

i think it’s cute. if the ceremony is in a church, you may want to wear a cardigan or wrap but it’s good for the reception.
i’ve actually worn different dresses to the ceremony and reception. my fun dress just wasn’t church appropriate so i changed in between.

@amberdk: It’s totally fine for a summer wedding. The high crewneck makes up for the backless part. If it were low neckline and backless, then it would not be appropriate and “too much.” Love the color too!

It’s really cute and a great color for summer. I agree about a nice dressy sweater during the ceremony, then rock it at the reception!
