The cut outs paired with the high slit would be a big ole nope from me. It’s a sexy dress. Not sure “classy” comes to mind.

I wouldn’t be upset if a guest wore that to my wedding, but I’d personally never wear that to someone else’s wedding.

I would not care if someone wore this to my wedding. Is the wedding formal? If so, I think it’s fine. If no one else is going to be in a long dress though, I might rethink it.

Yeah, that’s a big ol’ nope from me. Cutouts paired with a super high slit? It honestly in no way reads classy to me, and I think weddings are a time to be classy. As a bride, would I waste my time stressing about your outfit if you wore that? No. But I would absolutely remember that and would think you were an AW with no class. I recognize I might be more conservative than some others here.

Indeed, those can hardly be considered “cut-outs”. It is essentially a bare midriff dress with a high slit. Classy? Really?

allieski :  I would raise my eyebrows at a guest if they wore this to my wedding, but I wouldn’t worry about it.

The slit is way too high to be “classy”, and I’m not sure I’d call that a “cutout” so much as “there’s a section missing”. Consequently, I wouldn’t call it formal, either.

I think a long red dress would be lovely to wear to a July wedding. Knee high slits would be appropriate. Cutouts covered in lace, or sheer material, or something, would be appropriate. Slit and cut outs is too much.

I bet, though, that your SO would love it on date night, and if you like this dress, I would get it and save it for date night.

Far too attention seeking for a wedding.

Cutouts and a slit up the thigh does not constitute classy to me.

allieski :  I think it is very sexy and I love it. Thay being said… it is attention seeking a bit and depends on the crowd. I had a fun dress I’d worn to a wedding before, gained 5 lbs then wore to another wedding. I regretted each picture I was in when I saw myself in them later. The deep v with my added clevage was too much. It was the only dress I had brought because I didn’t realize how differently it would look on my fuller frame.

I wouldn’t be mad if someone worn your dress to my wedding but ask the bride what she thinks of it.

I like it. Then again, it doesn’t matter what I like or what I’d deem acceptable. You know the people who will be present, we do not. While this would not cause any problems for myself or my circle of friends, clearly some other bees wouldn’t be comfortable. I’d say use your best judgment, if you’re having to ask that might be giving you an indication.

I think this dress would be okay for a dinner date with your man, but not a wedding. The slit comes up pretty high and there is a portion of the back out along with cut outs in the front. This dress is a bit too attention seeking, and all of the attention should be on newly married couple that day.

If it didn’t have the slit I would be all for it but with the cut outs and the slit it’s just to much for me.

But I didn’t care what anyone wore to my wedding. As a bride, I would not care if you wore this to my wedding.
