Is this dress suitable to wear to a wedding? The wedding will be in Spring/Summer.
The wedding is at 1PM at a church, and the reception is at 6PM (located in the gardens of these mountains). Is this a formal wedding?

It’s a little casual. So if it’s a casual wedding, I would say yes. If it’s more formal then no.

If it’s a spring/ summer wedding, I think it’s ok!

hikingbride : I agree with the casual part. Not appropriate for a formal wedding

Looks casual to me as well. When I think of my friends upcoming wedding I definitely would not wear something this casual as it is extremely formal. Depends on if you know the wedding details.

Where is the reception located?
I’m leaning toward no; I wouldn’t personally wear a dress with a midriff cutout for a ceremony taking place in a place of worship, and if the reception starts at 6 (unless it’s in a garden or on a beach or something), the dress is likely too casual for that portion.

Considering many religions/churches consider bare shoulders inappropriate, I would avoid anything baring your midriff. Even relatively liberal churches I have attended generally endorse basic levels of modesty.
It also feels a little casual for a 6pm reception. Perhaps a midmorning brunch or luncheon without a church service.

I would not bare my midriff at a religious ceremony.

What they all said about the midriff . Beach wedding maybe, but a 6 pm reception sounds like it will be more formal that dress is.
