sophx8 : Red truly looks fantastic on her. I’m leaning towards the idea that red is a controversial color (or not) to wear as a guest for weddings, depending on one’s cultural context. In Latin America it is not controversial at all, and is somewhat common, as it looks great on olive/darker skin, and dark haired women.

claroquesi : I was also wondering if that may be the difference! Red is so beautiful, so I can’t blame them for making it a common color at all. If it was the standard in my culture, I would want to wear it too! I love learning all the cultural differences through this site.

I have been to several weddings in Latin America and the dress code was gowns (but not poufy) for women and suits for men. So your dress would have been perfect. But all of them were evening weddings. I would talk to the family to make sure.

If you’re in South America the culture may well be different on this! That dress would be too formal in an Australian wedding unless you knew for a fact it was black tie. However I did go to a Filipino wedding recently and the formality level was a bit ramped up, the bridesmaids dresses were quite similar to that dress. They also did the thing where the guests can match the wedding colours. So you might have to guide yourself on this one…

If it’s a black tie wedding, in which case it would say so on invite, then that is perfect
However way over the top if its not.. a 800 dollar designer gown? please do not spend that money on a guest dress
I am assuming you have instagram? go look at the location on instagram and see what people are wearing in tagged photos. done.

anatheanalyst : Thanks for chiming in. I take you didn’t see any of the updates. Btw, that is a VERY clever idea with the instagram thing.

Overjoyed : This is a black tie dress – if it’s not a black tie wedding, then don’t wear it.
