    Ugh, not a good choice. Maxi dresses aren’t formal enough in my opinion.

    I hate maxi dresses and they are way way to informal for a wedding.

    It depends on the wedding.  If its a beach wedding or a backyard barbeque type deal, then why not?  If its in a hotel or someplace even remotely fancy, then don’t do the maxi.

    I did a maxi dress last year for a wedding.  Dressed it up w/ jewelry.  It was 100 degress outside that day….ceremony outside….casual recpetion inside.

    I wore a maxi dress to a wedding last weekend and so did my sister in law.  The pattern on it was pretty, and with a nice necklace and my hair done nicely, it looked perfectly dressy enough.  There were some people there who were very dressed up, and others who were very casual. 

    I think it all depends on the dress and how you style yourself around it.  Some maxi dresses are too casual, some are perfectly fine.  Would I ever in a million years wear a floor length formal gown to a wedding?  Hell no… not unless i was a bridesmaid.  That seems over the top to me

    I don’t see why not. I’d probably stick to solid color if it’s a formal wedding but otherwise no worries.

    Definitely depends on the style & fabric, but I’m leaning toward yes regardless 🙂

    I voted wrong, I think it’s overtly fine to wear a maxi to a wedding!

    I would say yes for a solid-colored knit, no to a leopard-multi-colored tie-dyed mess like 90% of them seem to be!
