    It’s very cute!  It isn’t too formal, I usually assume that weddings are business casual and while that dress is a little fancy for business but very cute!

    I think it’s great. If you’re worried it will be too formal, you can always take a cardigan with you, it would dress it down a bit

    I think this is perfect for any wedding a black dress is a simple black dress can be anything you want it to be…. for a formal look, wear a great smokey eye and red lipstick, killer heels, a statement cocktail ring and a clutch with a little sparkle or dress it down with a blazer (sleeves cuffed to 3/4 length) a pair of nude pumps, simple makeup with a glossy lip. Either way, this dress can go to any occation.

    It’s lovely, maybe add a little colour with a cardi/hair flower/ jewellery?

    I agree about the cardigan – that way you’ll be appropriately dressed either way!

    Very cute dress and I love the shoes you got too. If you’re unsure of the dress code, I would maybe ask around mutal friends that might be going and see what they say too. I like the idea of wearing it with a cardigan for some colour.

    Cute!  I agree with the cardigan option.  I also like the pink/nude heels!  Fun jewelry is another way to dress it up or down.

    Something I did for an evening wedding in July was a black dress (J. Crew Sophia in Silk tricotine) and wore a bright necklace, earrings and pashmina shawl and…some sort of heel, I forget.  But it looked fine–so you could always do the shawl thing, too.  But cardis always work.

    @Mrs_Amanda: I personally think it is always better to be over dressed than under-dressed. It also isn’t like a gown, its a black dress. It is easy to dress up or down and especially if it is in the evening, inside or out, it will be lovely!

    Very pretty! White house black market has some great options, I purchased a LBD there as well and I’d say LBD’s are pretty safe no matter what (except for maybe a day wedding), and like PP’s said, bring a light cardi to dress it down if need be, or a saran/pashmina. 

    I love the WHBM jewelry as well, but I know it’s kinda spendy, but pearls would be gorgeous! Also a red statement belt would be super cute if you wanna accesorize a little?

    I like the dress and I like the idea of you wearing a shoe with color and/or a color other than black.  A shoe that pops!  How is this for funky?  All at DSW.
