DH and I are going to a wedding in a few months that will be at a fancy old hotel in the French Quarter. It’s a black tie affair and I’m trying to figure out if this sequined/beaded gown would be appropriate for something like that? It’ll be pretty much the middle of summer and quite hot, that’s why I was leaning towards something sort of airy. Any thoughts from you ladies?

I think it would be great for a black tie event, but I think it looks too bridal for a wedding. I could easily see a bride wearing that exact dress to a wedding.

Sequin gown: YES but I also vote for a more non-bridal color.

for a general black tie event its nice but this easily looks like a wedding dress, ive seen gatsby themed weddings with dresses very similar before

Agree with PP. The gown is fine but the color is defintely too bridal unless you know the bride is wearing a ballgown or something. Even then I probably wouldn’t do it in that color but at least you would know you wont look anything like the bride.

Stay away from blush, cream, white, ivory.
