Looks fine to me.  Plus, since you’re pregnant you get a bit more leeway in the dress department.

I think it looks perfect. Just make your hair a bit more formal. It looks good for a formal wedidng to me!

I wouldn’t wear it, it too causal and busy and light for a formal afternoon event.

The “Flying Tomato”? that is such a cool name! I can envision the tomato flying through the air, whoosh…. ahem, cough cough…

oh…. yeah, the dress! Yeah, it’s nice and i really like the fact that it’s not a mini-skirt… I have been seeing too many short skirts lately.

It looks pretty casual to me for a formal wedding. Unless your social circle tends to be pretty casual, you might be underdressed. Sorry!

I think formal and afternoon together are a bit odd, but in a garden and the dress is perfect. Something loose and comfortable is what I’d wear and no one will give it a thought.

I’m having a formal wedding, and if someone wore this to it, I’d be a bit annoyed.  But if it’s an afternoon wedding, I guess it’s okay?  I don’t really get what a formal/outdoor/afternoon wedding entails, because they are all so different to me.

Absolutely not. The wedding starts in the afternoon, right? If the wedding starts at 2-3 pm the reception will be in the evening. The dress is too casual. Also, why is no one else reacting to how white this dress is? 

If the invites say formal, a print maxi will not cut it. Solid colors, satin, etc are what you need. This dress looks like a nightgown– def not formal.
