I, personally, would not consider wearing that particular dress to a formal, evening wedding at an upscale venue.

I’m pretty liberal, but I think that if the wedding is formal, this is a little informal. If you styled it differently, it might work–but a short tight dress in a leopard print is quite a statement. 

You can wear black to a wedding, you know!

I probably wouldn’t wear it to be honest, it’s a bit casual in my opion. It’s a gorgeous dress though!

For a semiformal wedding, I think that dress is okay. However, that being said, the print might be a little much for a wedding altogether..

I can only speak for myself but if I saw someone wear a leopard print mini-dress at a wedding of any kind, it would definitely grab my attention. That’s the opposite reaction to what you really want to be getting.

I have to be honest,  I’m not a fan of the dress for any wedding.  I think animal print is a little much for weddings.

I think the dress is fine. I have been to many very formal weddings in the past three years and girls mostly wear coctail dresses. I don’t think the print matters, you are showing your own personal style. I think the only thing that would make this inappropriate would be if it were too tight or too short. pick some conservative heels (like black medium height) and a nice black bag. Maybe even a light nice black sweater/cover up and you will be fine. Trust me. People are looking at the bride.

That’s more something I’d wear to a beach party or a club.

I think it’s a wee too casual, however, you can spruce it up if you wear the right accessories/maybe a black blazer and the right leg/feet wear.

Not my taste. Screams a bit too cougar-y for me.

I may be in the minority here but I think its fine for a wedding. Reading the comments I was expecting to see a club type dress. There is nothing risque about this dress. Its not like snooki leopard print and its long enough and is not super low cut and actually has a very elegant silohuette IMO. The pattern is fun and a bit more than what most would wear to a wedding but I do not think its too much by any means. I would say as long as the accessories and shoes keep it elegant and not club looking than you should be fine.
