My sister wants to wear this dress to our brothers wedding this summer. Ceremony will be outside and reception inside a ballroom, the weather will be hot (like high 80’s). She typically dresses like this, low cut outfits and is thin like the model, not huge boobs where it will be a distraction. She asked me if I thought it was okay, I’m not sure…. What do you think? I personally am not sure about having a train at someone’s elses wedding? This will be a high class wedding at a 5 star resort

Is it a black tie wedding? I’m kinda on the fence. It’s very prom dress-y.

Umm, it looks like lingerie and I really don’t think it’s appropriate.

That is too much skin. It also looks cheap to me.

I wouldn’t say inappropriate, but that is an evening gown for a gala, etc. Not an outdoor wedding. It’s also not exactly modest.

Good point on the train; it feels a bit dramatic for that. I think it’s otherwise fine though.

bctoquebec : she’s not really modest! Ceremony will be short outside my brother said since it will be so hot outside. Majority inside a ballroom. I was mostly turned off my the train. I bet she will still choose a dress showing that much skin but I don’t know lol

It’s a bit much for an elegant wedding.
Cleavage or backless (or leg), only one. No train.

alexaj12 : The problem with that dress is not that it is “sexy”. The problem is that it is a very boring dress; a lazy design. She can do sensual – which is more interesting than just sexy – with a gown which shows that at least some thought was put into its design, whether it’s the texture, print, or silhouette. Just as an example:

alexaj12 : You are absolutely right, you do not wear a train to someone else’s wedding. The cleavage and back are whatever, but a train? That’s barely a half step under wearing a veil. It’s pretty much a sign saying “Look at me, not the bride!” She can be sexy, confident, even risque if that’s her style, but a train is none of the above, it will just be making a fool of herself. I would really try to talk her out of it.

It looks a lot like a nightie to me???

I’m pretty sure I owned something exactly like that from Frederick’s of Hollywood when I was 20 and thought my boyfriend would totally be about the sexy lingerie (he wasn’t – he was into naked). At least the Frederick’s version is like a fourth of the price.
You’re likely not going to get her into something modest – and she is who she is and I’m sure you’re all aware of her style. But I would steer her away from anything that looks like it came out of a lingerie catalog – it just always looks cheap, imo, because the intent is for it to be hitting the floor shortly after putting it on – so it’s not exactly formal event material.
