Do you think this would be okay to wear to a wedding? Its at an upscale venue in the evening, but I’m not sure how formal it is. I HATE chosing things to wear to a wedding because I feel like its either too informal, too formal, too tight, too white, too black… I drive myself crazy!
I scored this dress @ Macys for $30 today… and I’d love to get some use out of it.

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!

@ the bridal shower, the MOB told me she liked my dress and that I should wear it to the wedding– short, strapless, pale pink, pencil skirt, in a crochet material… too informal in my opinion… bought it @ oasis in the UK if that serves as a guide. This left me completely confused about the formality of the wedding!

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

Just saw on the website that the wedding is “semiformal”

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 thought the same thing you guys are saying, but my friends that I went shopping with, and the ones that have come over, keep saying that it would be great! We’re all pretty conservative people so its not like we wear bandage dresses a lot haha…. I think the difference in opinion comes from the length of the dress on real people (since I’m super short, its to the knee) and the fabric doesn’t look leopard print in person, just bright colored dots and swirls.
I think you guys are probably right as to THIS wedding — the bride is really shy! I think that’s why I would prefer something more plain.

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.
