    All of these dresses look like something you would wear to a club. It’s not a guests day to show off. Leave anything questionable hanging in the closet. I’m a big believer in “if you have to ask….”

    Not a fan of cut outs.

    baybee23:  I think you should add a “none” option. To be honest, while I think the first and last dresses *might* be appropriate depending on what the other side looks like, I’m a bit on the fence. I’m pretty open minded with most things and would likely not care of a guest wore one of those to my wedding – but I would personally think twice before wearing something like that. But that may be because I still have a few lbs to get rid of, haha.

    I can’t vote. I don’t think that any of those dresses are appropriate wedding attire.

    I wouldn’t wear any of those to a wedding- club wear only!

    I don’t mind the cut outs on 6 or 2 for a wedding, but I think that all of those dresses are way to short for a wedding. If they were longer then I think they would be fine but as a PP mentioned they all seem like club dresses.

    Maybe in the back, but in general I think it’s too racy for weddings. Looks trashy tbh! More appropriate for a night out. I think it’s better to keep wedding looks elegant and classy.

    None of them are appropriate for anywhere except a night club. :/

    I voted number 2

    I would only wear something like that if the wedding was VERY casual, maybe had a boho kind of vibe. Otherwise no I don’t think any of them are really formal or elegant enough for a wedding.

    I’ve seen dresses that have cut ours in them, but they’re translucent, meaning it’s not bare skin in the other side. I think those are ok to wear. But these are a bit racy. Try lord and Taylors?

    I love the cutouts on the lighter colored dresses – i think the light colored fabric makes it look more fun and less club.
