I haven’t been to a lot more weddings as a guest, and was wondering if this dress was appropriate for a city wedding where the dress code is black tie.
I’ve looked at several gowns, but have not found anything that I truly like. I was going to wear it with strappy nude louboutin sandals, dangling diamond earrings, a loose french twist with a little clutch.
Is the dress too sexy for a wedding? It looks really pretty on!

I think it looks fine. Love the color, and it’s a nice hint of sexy without being distateful. I recently went to a wedding where one guest’s boobs were practically falling out of her dress, and another’s dress was barely long enough to cover her crotch. It’s amazing what some people wear…

I don’t think it’s too sexy at all but it feels more casual than black tie formal. But I’m not an expert so I don’t know.

I think it’s fine. on the one side it goes down to ankle, long dresses are considered black tie last I know. I’d wear it.

I love it, I don’t think its too sexy at all! But I agree with PP, may be a bit casual for black tie?

I think the material is too casual, looks like stretch jersey?, for black tie and you couldn’t describe that dress as a ‘gown’ but it all depends on the location… if the reception is outdoors or under a marquee tent, then I believe you could pull it off.

I think it looks totally appropriate and a really nice colour!

I like it and I think with the right accessories (which it sounds like you have) it will be fine for black tie.

I like the style! I agree that the material looks a bit casual. But I think your accessories of fancy shoes and nice earrings will balance it out fine.

Inappropriate. Too sexy and too casual for black tie–you need an evening gown.

Are you close to the bride and groom? You may wish to check with them. If it’s a casual black tie (as mine was – just make an effort, thanks) then it would be fine. If they mean formal black tie then no, it’s far too slinky. It does look beautiful though!

I like it, I might just be careful of the slit and make sure it doesn’t creep up too high. You could also put on really sheer black pantyhose to dress it up a bit?

I’d wear it to a semi-formal wedding, but it looks too casual for black tie to me.

I think it looks a little too casual for black-tie; however, it is possible to spruce it up to black tie with your hairstyle and jewelry. If you rock a sophisticated (not boho) updo, heels, and nice jewelry you could pull this up to black tie.

If it really is black tie , then that dress is too slouchy and casual for it .
