    Unless you know the wedding is going to be a super casual backyard BBQ, I don’t see how a cocktail-length dress at an evening wedding can be overdressed. You’re a lucky and rare example of someone who is actually planning to re-wear a bridesmaid dress! Be glad!!

    @sparkly:   My Fiance thinks maxi dresses are too formal for every day wear because its “like a floor length gown.” Lol! I think your dress is good!

    @sparkly:  “but what do most men know about womens fashion really???lol”.  

    True that.  Go with this dress.  It’s very cute!

    Definitely wear it. It’s an evening wedding too, which although not always, tend to be more “formal” or as your Fiance says “shiny-fabric friendly” lol.

    @sparkly:  I wouldn’t worry about a couple people not thinking it’s appropriate, it’s probably that they think it’s too short, or not short enough or something. There is never going to be 100% of people pleased with something. 

    It’s a cute dress, and you will look beautiful at the wedding.

    Don’t take fashion advice from a man unless his name is Tim Gunn

    I think some people might be iffy about the top looking kind of bridal? I don’t know… I usually just stay clear of any white-ish colors even within a color-block. It’s definitely not too dressy for an evening wedding.
