    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.

    kiram :  

    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
