    Looks like you’ve already decided, but for what it’s worth I’m having a cocktail attire wedding in a museum and think this dress is awesome. Seems perfect for the venue, I bet you’ll rock it!

    I think the combination of being a bit shapeless + sleeves makes it look a little too casual. If you were to wear that I would wear a belt to cinch it in at the waist, along with your planned accessories.

    glitterati :  Seems like you are leaning toward wearing it. And if you want to, you do you.

    However, I will say that I looked up the fabric of this dress and it’s cotton. Which is fine, but it does not elevate the dress for me, especially with everything else that is going on. If ithad been silk, then maybe it would be different.

    ETA: Just saw the update on the last page–it’s not my style but you do you, girl!

    I wear printed cotton poplin dresses like this for sunday brunch and shopping, it really isn’t a wedding guest outfit. 

    It looks fun and cute, but not expensive/ elegant.

    The oversized sleeves are definitely what makes this look like a big shirt. If it were sleeveless it would look very clean and contemporary, wearable avant-garde. I voted “weird” even though it’s not really weird, just isn’t very body-flattering.

    I love it! I don’t think it looks like a t-shirt. Definitely a pretty dress. There’s so much you can do with shoes and accessories too to dress it up or down. Rock it. 🙂

    It looks pretty casual, but for the kind of wedding you’re describing casual sounds okay. And it sounds like you’ve made up your mind already anyways..

    Does not look like a t-shirt! I couldnt pull it off with my body type but i can imagine a few of my friends doing this look and me thinking it is really cute! If the venue is more on the formal side I’d say no but it sounds like an arsty venue and like this would work!

    I love it! this dress would fit in at many weddings I’ve been to. I don’t know where you’re from but that dress would be suitable for most weddings here in Australia

    I love it! I think it looks like art. It’s definitely fancy enough for a wedding.

    You find lots of types of coctail suitable attire that isnt tight just from a (very) quick Google image search! 🙂

    I like it! I’m getting married soon and if a guest wore that dress I’d think they had a really clever style and added a fun mix to the looks.
