I think it’s great! It is kind of full, but I think it doesn’t look bridal. You look very elegant and it fits a formal wedding.

That dress is gorgeous!! I don’t think the skirt is too full at all. Love the red shoes too!

Better safe than sorry. Traditional etiquette still says no to anything white, black, or bright red. I do wear black to weddings  and though I avoid it myself,  I personally think white is OK as long as it’s not obviously bridal.  I’d also avoid anything in a color that stands out this much.

I’ve never heard of the no red nonsense before here and plenty people wear red in my area so I would go for it! Most of my wedding guests wore black and I don’t understand the big deal.

That dress is a gorgeous find!  Just wear it somewhere….it deserves to be worn (and I would have no qualms about wearing this to a wedding)!
