There’s no dress code mentioned anywhere, but the venue is in a church, at 2pm. Knowing the couple, they probably expect Semi-formal/Sunday-Dress attire…do you think this would be too formal? It’s much darker in person than the pic presents. If it weren’t for the sequins I think I’d go for it, but I’m doubting whether it’s a bit too much. I would pair it with opaque tights and black heels.

I’d probably say it’s fine, but I’d skip the tights.

No tights, and the models strippy sandals look great.

I kow women are wearing sequins in the daytime, but a whole sequin dress is a bit much for me.

I like it, sequins are minimal and looks like mostly lace. You could always throw a cardigan or something over it to bring it down a bit for the ceremony and then wear it alone for the reception.

I agree with the cardigan idea 🙂 That would definitely help. And yes, those strappy sandals are good! could even go for brown or nude sandals to really tone it down a bit. Depends a lot on your jewelry too.

lf the sequins aren’t TOO sparkly and bright. It’s a really nice dress and very elegant. Also, if by ‘opaque’ tights you mean really dark ones, or thick ones l don’t think that would enhance the look, and look sorry. Delicate flesh coloured ones would be the go.
For shoes, don’t have big wedges or anything too heavy generally. Sandals maybe

By opaque tights, I should have said “sheer”, like pantyhose. My legs are splotchy which I’m a bit insecure about, so unless it’s 80 degrees I usually prefer wearing some sort of tights/pantyhose with a dress…and I’ve always been told it’s more modest for church weddings anyway.
So maybe a lighter/nude colored pantyhose. I don’t have any strappy sandals, but that would look a bit odd with pantyhose anyway…black heels are pretty much the only thing I have that would match this, lol.
I think I’ll just pick something else. I’ve been feeling kinda “eehhh” about this option since the beginning, but I haven’t worn it yet so I thought it’d be worth considering. Thanks again!
