    PlumeriaSplash :  It’s a very pretty dress! I do see it as more suited for a Sunday brunch wedding. Perhaps something like this, with the same silhouette?

    It looks pretty short. Where does it fall to on you?

    Is semi-formal called out? Whenever I see semi-formal, I think cocktail dress at the least, or like a really nice jumpsuit or pant suit. I don’t think of that type of dress, sorry! If it was more casual, then yes, that is fine (like an outdoor garden wedding or a day time wedding). But if semi-formal is called out and its a night wedding, I would go with something a little more dressy than that.

    It’s a very cute dress, but it doesn’t scream semi-formal to me.

    If it’s a brunch or afternoon wedding, yes. If it’s an evening wedding, no.

    Sorry but it looks like a beach dress. It’s a no from me.

    You might feel a bit semi conscious about the white in the dress. Also, when I think semi formal, I think dark cocktail dresses.

    I wouldn’t call that semi formal.

    Are you comfortable? Is it clean? 

    All the weddings I have been to – formal, semi-formal or otherwise have ladies wearing dresses like that. My only question is would you feel uncomfortable if you were underdressed?

    It’s a pretty dress.

    Semi-formal just means cocktail dresses. I would say it’s fine for a summer wedding, but it does look very short. The white is a total non-issue.

    I think it is a cute dress, but too casual for the occasion. I’d go with a longer silhouette in a darker color.

    I think for an afternoon wedding it would be great! Dress it up with some heels and I think you’d be good. I think as long as you avoid sandals, no one will mistake for a beach dress (????) lol.
