Hi! I went dress shopping the other day, and I fell absolutely in love with a Casa Blanca dress # 1901. I like that it’s unique from all the puffy, strapless gowns I usually see. But I wonder if it might be too formal for our morning wedding/afternoon reception. We’re having a Catholic church wedding, so I wanted something that was both appropriate for a church setting and can be wearable in the afternoon. My fiance is wearing a black suit and a tie (no tux or vest). Will I look way too formal in this dress? But I really do love it!

This is a gorgeous gown. Our ceremony and reception are both going to be in the afternoon and I am wearing a ball gown. I do not think this is to formal at all. I think you should wear what you really like/love. I think it also covers enough of everything for the church and I think that it would be comfortable to wear in the afternoon for your reception.

It is beautiful… And not too formal at all. The way I see it is it is your wedding, you are supposed to be dressed up and feel beautiful regardless of the time and venue. My mom was trying to convince me that a satin paloma gown would look foolish for a beach wedding and I ended up getting one that I wasnt in love with… Now I have two dresses cause I went back to my gut feeling. Congrats and go for it I say! 🙂

Wear it! I personally don’t think the time of the day matters- as long as you love your dress!

Girlfriend – this dress is TO DIE FOR!! GO FOR IT!!! I was worried about having a “too formal” dress for my afternoon/casual outdoor wedding… until my family and friends reminded me, if EVER there was a day to be “too dressy”, it’s on your wedding!!!

Wow, thanks for the advice! I think I have my dress! I’m really happy because I’m a two-dress bride (I bought a really cheap Mori Lee gown at a sample sale on impulse and I realized I was more in love with the price than the dress). When I tried this Casablanca dress on, I knew that I really loved it. Then, my sister suggested that the dress might be too formal and that I might look out of place in photos (our bridesmaids are wearing tea-length satin dresses and the fiance is wearing a suit and tie, not a formal tux). But yes, I love this dress, and that’s all that matters!
