    As long as it wasn’t a white dress [ or anything matching what you wore] I think its okay. Sadly you wouldn’t think you need to tell people about appropriate dress wear but everyone comes from a different background and a different acceptable.

    Did you include anthign about attire on your invitations?

    Does it matter now?

    No, it wouldn’t bother me. The day is about me. People like to talk about people. What are you supposed to do about it. To me that’s getting caught up in the little things that don’t matter. Not to mention the fact it didn’t bother you until people mentioned it to you. That would bother me more than what they wore.

    Honestly, they wouldn’t have outdone you anyway. You were the bride and everyone was there for you and not their sparkly dresses.

    I had girls wear sparkly mini dresses to my wedding, and honestly, until the pictures came back I didn’t even notice. It doesn’t bother me at all.

    If the dress code wasn’t super-formal, then at least the dress with a train was a little over the top. Like you said, you can’t and shouldn’t do anything about it now, but it looks to me like they were trying to grab extra attention.

    I think it’s tacky to wear something like that to a wedding, but see it as something to be amused by instead of offended by.  The long dress seems like either a prom or red carpet dress.  The mini looks like a clubbing dress to me.

    It’s really not that big of deal, and anyone bringing it up after the wedding is just petty.

    That being said, I’m Lebanese and people dress like this to weddings where they barely know the bride and groom.

    I agree with the tacky opinion. I can’t imagine why anyone would wear that to a wedding, even a formal one.

    Probably not the most appropriate but I wouldn’t be offended.  There was a girl at my brother’s wedding (one of his wife’s cousins) dressed in a very short, very tight, strapless green dress.  I thought it wasn’t very appropropriate, but oh well.  If they don’t mind people looking at them and thinking that, I’m not sure what you can do about it.

    @Happy_Bee:  Well… it seems it is just a matter of different customs causing different expectations.  You say in your country their dresses would be okay at a wedding.  Generally, here, in the USA those dresses would be too much.  If you were okay with them, that is all that matters.
