Hey everyone! I’m going to a wedding today and I’m not sure if my dress is appropriate for the occasion. The wedding is going to be around 7 at a hotel. Do you think this dress is ok? It’s not too formal or dark for a wedding is it? It’s been a couple years since I’ve been to a wedding so I’m sure I’m just overthinking everything.

Definitely not TOO formal. I was expecting a ball gown but this is on the casual side for a cocktail attire wedding TBH

That dress looks perfect for a wedding.

Agreed. It’s on the more casual side for an evening wedding, but it should work.

Looks like a cocktail dress to me. Unless the fabric is super casual (e.g. cotton knit), then it looks great.

Unless the dress is cotton or another casual fabric, I don’t see how this is not a perfectly appropriate cocktail dress. The floral pattern does not make it casual. It’s also in no way formal.
As for too dark, only if you are very traditional and avoid black as a wedding guest. Emily Post, for example has long stated the no black rule to be outdated. No one where I live still follows that rule, but some older women do and it can vary regionally, as well.

No , it’s certainly not too formal, it inclines to the sexy/clubwear rather than the formal . Colour is fine.
