Link to the dress:
Title self-explanatory…the dress is black with silver metallic thread. I like it and have worn it to another wedding 4 years ago, but that one had specified “cocktail attire”. The wedding coming up will be an evening wedding in October in TX.
Any opinions appreciated!

lf it is an evening reception . Idk about being a church friendly dress, unless you have a wrap or something , but if the ceremony is in the venue it should be ok.

Looks perfectly fine!
I agree with @elderberry:
that the wedding is at place of religious worship I’d bring a shrug or a wrap, in case they require guests to cover their shoulders.

My answer is “maybe.” The invitation is actually unclear and confusing. A black tie wedding is a formal event and is supposed to be designated that way on the invitation. Formal attire is what you would be expected to know to wear to a formal event.
The phrase “formal attire” makes no sense to me for two reasons. One, they aren’t supposed to dictate dress code in the first place. And two, if it’s not black tie, formal attire would be inappropriate, including at night. My guess is what they actually mean is cocktail attire but it’s just a guess. If so, IMO a full length glitter gown may be too dressy. In your place I’d just clarify.

agree it’s kinda confusing. I haven’t seen “formal attire” before, only cocktail, black tie optional, or no guidance at all.
I’ll definitely have a wrap or evening jacket.
Thanks for your thoughts everyone!
