    To me it’s a little TOO casual & simple. I have zero problem with a black dress but am not loving that one. My opinion. I voted “maybe” because I think with the right dress black would be fine

    I think the dress is beautiful!  If you don’t think you will have any regrets go for it!! I have not known anyone to do it, besides Sarah Jessica Parker who did say she later regretted not wearing white.  (For whatever that’s worth). I think today traditions/etiquette etc are not so formal.  It’s your wedding day and you need to wear what will make you happy!!

    @missebelle:  I dont mind a black wedding dress, but not this one – for me at least. I have this exact dress & I wear it out running errands during the day with sandals & a summer hat. I know you’re having a small city hall wedding, but I think you deserve something a little more special 🙂 Good luck!

    @missebelle:  really? I’m surprised. Those red lips look great on you. 

    I am as super pale as well and red looks awesome on me – has to be the right kind of red though (clear, with blue tones). I think you could probably pull off a deeper, more muted red, closer to burgundy, or maybe a rust red. Damn it I just want the whole world to love red as much as I do!

    Is there a colour you really really love (apart from black) and that you feel that suits you better than any other? I ask because maybe it’s the colour, not the style, that’s going to give you the inspiration you’re looking for.

    @missebelle:  My best friend is probably going with a black dress. She’s getting marriedin October of next year and it’s up in Canada (she’s American, he’s Canadian.)
    We’re all for it because it reflects her personality.

    @missebelle:  I personally like black at a wedding. A girl I knew from highschool had this most amazing black lace, mermaid style dress for her wedding. It suited her style so much. So for the right bride, it really works.

    I think your dress is very casual for a wedding, but you really ultimately have to go with what you love. 🙂
