my friend is getting married next week and i’m trying to figure out what to wear. i went to nordstrom the other day and i loooooooove this dress, but i don’t know if it might be too flashy/ too much.
her wedding is going to be an outdoor wedding at a botanical garden and she hasn’t officially determined her attire requirements (semiformal/formal etc) adding to my dilemma.
but, she’s wearing a monique lhuillier

It’s a little too… something.
It’s definitely flashy, but I don’t know if it’s *too* flashy. There’s something about the dress that seems just a little inappropriate for a wedding guest but I can’t really figure out what.

i don’t think it’s too flashy at all! i was expected something really blingy from your post, so it actually looked pretty understated in comparison 😉 the pink is fun if that’s what you prefer, and def appropriate for an outdoor garden wedding. the black looks a little more formal

I hate how you can’t see the pics from Canada…just says “International Shopping”. Blargh. Anyways, I can’t see the styles but just by colour I would wear fuschia 🙂

I’m just not a fan of one shouldered dresses.

I would be totally fine with someone wearing that at my wedding.

Outdoors and surrounded by flowers (since it’s in a botanical garden), I think the fuschia will be nice; I actually can’t imagine wearing black in a botanical garden (a ballroom, sure), and I wear black all the time. I think the style could be seen as flashy for a daytime event, but if it’s an evening event, go for it!

I would go with the fuschia too ! my mom just got an invite in the mail that said not to wear white OR black… so i think that is scarring me…

@Bostonsmom: I had to click on them two different times and then it worked
@sweetietooth: It is better to be overdressed rather than underdressed

I think they’re both fine! The fushia is definitely brighter but fits more with a botanical garden. The black is lovely but I think older etiquette says not to wear a black dress to a wedding… How bright is the fushia in person?

Nope, not too flashy. You can always dress it down with a belt and some espadrilles. Looks like a cute dress!
