    I think your plan is a good one, and a grey cardigan would look nice with your blue dress. It’s a very nice dress and I don’t think it’s inappropriate, but I would probably feel uncomfortable with the open back in a church, so for your own comfort I think it’s a good idea to wear a cardigan.

    General rule of thumb is shoulders should be covered in church.  Some don’t care, but better to just err on the side of conservative.

    I think either cardigan will be fine.

    I think it depends on the church how much you need to cover up – are they generally fairly conservative and would give you the side eye in that dress? Personally, I see nothing wrong with wearing that dress as-is (no cardigan) but all the churches I went to growing up (catholic) wouldn’t care. My sister wore a strapless, v back gown to her wedding in a Catholic Church. I think it’s kinda silly to get up in arms over shoulders. 

    ETA: I would probably bring a cardigan just for possible comfort – ime most churches are FREEZING in the summer because they’re blasting the AC

    It definitely depends on the church – there’d be no problem in my church with this dress. But if you prefer to cover up then I think the grey cardigan sounds better.

    some churches are more conservative than others

    im a UK bee and i would say, get a pashmina shawl. it will look more glam than a cardigan. also a nice fascinator and matching handbag.

    here you can see hot pashmina shawls are a great coverup more formal than cardigan and even great for the reception

    I also would just drape a shawl over your shoulders/back instead. Its a little dressier.
