    I think it’s something a very fashionable person would wear and I’d be envious that they could pull it off when all I can seem to do is buy sheath dresses at Banana Republic.

    I am having an evening wedding at a non traditional venue in a major city and I would not be offended if someone wore that to my wedding.

    I think it’s too casual for a wedding and does not meet cocktail attire dress code. I like the dress for a different occasion. Just my opinion!

    I love it! Especially if you wore it with some bold heels and a statement necklace to tie the look together. If someone wore something that stylish and bold to my wedding, as the bride I would definitely compliment them about their outfit. But then again, I’m really into fashion and at my wedding I’m not expecting guest to change their stye to fit me or my family.

    Just because something doesnt nip in at the waist doesnt mean its a tshirt or too casual. I’m guessing some people have never opened a fashion magazine???? 

    It is a lovely dress, the accessories sound nice and its totally appropriate for the venue.

    I love this dress. Especially with black heels and the jewelry & hairstyle you described. Maybe throw on a bracelet, as well. I think the whole outfit sounds very chic.

    glitterati :  Big, bold, and colorful prints? I love them all, and your dress is one I would love to wear. I do think it’s a bit casual for this wedding. On the other hand, cocktail attire should not always end up being a tight dress, particularly when there are so many beautiful options! Thinking of alternatives, just several ideas:

    I actually LOVE it and I don’t think it will look too casual in person because of the fabric and accessories you’re planning. It’s so perfect for the venue!

    glitterati :  I love it — but I wouldn’t wear it to the wedding you described. I’d go either more traditional in pattern or shape. Both on this one are untraditional which may have you turning heads in a way you don’t want if you’re around typical Dallas folks.

    I think it’s really cool.  It sounds like the fabric is classy, so therefore it’s a cocktail dress, not a Tshirt dress.  With heels and jewelry, it’d look awesome.  Do it!  Oh and I live in Wyoming, so I think plenty of country folks can recognize artsy high fashion too 😉

    I’m gonna go against some of the other posters on this thread and say I absolutely think you can dress this up enough with the right hairstyle, earrings, clutch, and shoes. I actually think this dress is super cool and would totally wear it to a cocktail style wedding with dressy accessories.

    The dress is PERFECT for a wedding at Nasher Sculpture Garden. And it looks nothing like a T-shirt 🤦🏻‍♀️ Go rock that dress!!! Maybe do an updo instead of leaving your hair down to add a touch of formality?

    It’s not my style, but I definitely think it can be worn to the wedding. Cocktail attire is not limited to LBD’s and sequins.

    I would keep the accessories simple, especially the shoes, to make the dress the focus. It is a piece of art. Multi colored or patterned shoes would fight with the dress, not complement it.

    Seems a great choice for a sculpture center venue.
