You don’t wear dresses with a train to a wedding that’s not yours.
You don’t wear a silk-lingerie-skin-baring dress to an outdoor wedding, regardless of the reception site.
Whether she looks like a “model” or not, this is a WEDDING, not the freaking red carpet. It’s not the time to look “sexy” or “fire”. If she usually dresses like that, it’s clear she enjoys the attention, and that’s fine. But this is not her day. She’s a guest, not the star of the show.

Even the model, who is likely rain-thin, is showing her belly button through the dress. I agree with the sentiment that it looks cheap. She should keep looking. There are plenty of dresses out there that are sexy without being trashy, but this doesn’t hold up to scrutiny.

It’s not the shape…it’s the fabric. I can see the models bellybutton. I’m no prude get the dress in a good fabric same color then we’re talking but not that fabric.

No. It’s trying way too hard, and the fabric looks really cheap.
Stay away from shiny shiny fabrics.

I actually really like it.. the color, the design, everything. It just looks way too long on the model even. If part of the wedding is outside I’d have the train cut off so I wouldn’t be dragging it around over dirt and twigs.

This doesn’t really suit an outdoor wedding imo. It also looks like a costume. That all aside I don’t ever think it is appropriate to wear a dress with a train to someone’s wedding unless you are the bride or a bridesmaid. Tell your sister to find something else, everyone will be giving her a raised eyebrow in this.

I think the style is fine. I just think the quality is crap. For $200 she can get something way nicer. Tell her to check out Top Shop or ASOS. They have trendy, good quality pieces. As far as people saying it’s inappropriate, I love a deep V, open back, fitted, all that. I would be PISSED if someone told me that the style I dress in is not what they deem “appropriate”. The concern should be if she looks stupid (ie she buys something that doesn’t fit or flatter her figure) rather than being pearl clutchy. That dress is just kind of ugly IMO, but I like what she’s going for.

Honestly for 200$ usd you can find somethign way nicer and more unique. That is a good budget for a floor length gown, tell her to look on Nordstorrm. The dress looks cheap.. not going to lie. i do love the style and I think its easy to make that classy and black tie instead of too showy but the dress itself looks like a 50$ dress from missguided not a 5 star resort wedding
Also satin in that heat? Ya no.

Too low cut and in more than one place. It doesn’t look remotely bridal so if it is an actual black tie wedding the hemline would not bother me. I don’t really call that a train. If it’s not a black tie wedding a gown is inappropriately formal.
But as others say, I think you can do a lot better for the money. It doesn’t look well made.

Color is gorgeous. Dress itself is too over the top for a summer wedding.

I would have been okay if someone wore this to my wedding. It’s not white, and I don’t know that I’d call that a train, especially in comparison to a wedding train.
