    @davinanageleyes:  If it’s Black-tie, go for it! That dress is ahhh-ma-zingggg! I wish my guests would come dressed like that!

    @s2bmrscook:  +1

     

    I’ve definitely worn black gowns to black-tie weddings, and I wasn’t the only one. As long as the dress is lively and festive, it’ll look great. But attire customs might be stricter in the UK, so I’m not 100% sure, either.

    @davinanageleyes:  If it’s a more “casual” wedding, then I would go for a shorter dress that’s less formal.

    @davinanageleyes:  That is a gorgeous dress and silver accessories would be great with it. However, if it is a more casual wedding, I might choose something more, well, casual.

    @davinanageleyes:  Is it at night? If not, a LBD would be more appropriate, or I would skip the black altogether.

    If it’s a more casual wedding, then absolutely not. It’s too formal and honestly people may think you’re trying to draw attention to yourself. I say this only because at a friend’s wedding last summer a guest wore a blingy “prom dress” and it really upset the bride that this girl thought she needed to be the center of attention. The dress is beautiful but not appropriate for anything other than a formal event.

    @davinanageleyes:  I love it and I’d LOVE wearing it to a wedding! I say if its a fancy-pants wedding then GO FOR IT! Its always better to dress MORE formal than less! 😉

    @s2bmrscook:  +1 I definitely agree.

    @davinanageleyes:  Also depends on how formal/informal the wedding is – you definitely wouldn’t want to outdress them or look like you’re part of the wedding party, but if it’s black-tie then definitely go for it! 🙂

    I’m not opposed to the style or color of dress for a black-tie wedding, but I do not like the seams down the front cutting the torso & hips in thirds.

    Too dressy for a casual wedding.

    @davinanageleyes:  Definitely! 

     

    If its a day wedding/outdoors then it might be a bit over the top, but if its the standard english sit down wedding then its perfect. 

     

    Can i ask where its from? Its lovely and i recognise the model from somewhere? ASOS??? 🙂 x

    That is not a dress for a casual wedding.

    Unless your invitation specified that this is a black tie event, it’s too much.
