I love the dress! I would wear it. It’s always better to be slightly overdressed than underdressed…at least in my opinion.

I think that because of the print it can really go either way so I wouldn’t feel to concerned about it being to formal. If you are worried though you could pair it with flats instead of heals.

molokoa:  I wouldn’t worry, I think it was probably her money and not yours that she spent!

 

op lovely dress. It looks semi formal but will probably not overpower your mans slightly more casual outfit.

emm0172:  It’s beautiful and could work either way. I googled the venue and most of their wedding photos look not so formal, but I’m one who would always rather be overdressed than underdressed. I’d wear that dress with slightly understated hair, makeup, and accessories, but bring some lipstick and eyeliner (and maybe some jewelry) in case it turns out to be a little fancier after all.

It looks lovely. Re your guy though… A polo? No.

If youre concerned about looking overly formal though, I’d go with a cocktail length dress. And tell your guy to atleast wear a sport coat and tie. its a wedding not a golf course lol.

I think it’s odd you’d wear such a formal dress if your husband is wearing pants and a polo….I also googled the venue and it seems pretty…country. 

Personally, I would feel uncomfortable and would wear a short cocktail dress instead.

love it! and i think it could go either way depending on your shoes and accessories. just take some back-up pieces with you in case you need to alter your level of fancy. i’d rather be over-dressed than under-dressed.

I love that dress and think if you threw a jean jacket over it it would look adorable. Casual and dressy at the same time!

I’d send it back. If you’re paying $268 for a dress, you shouldn’t have to do any alterations. I’d look at the $150 and lower range. Look at David’s Bridal or JCrew for some nice chiffon dresses, both knee length and floor length. JCrew is having a great dress sale right now.

I think it is a little to fancy. It looks more like a prom dress.

Love it.  Not showing too much skin while being stylish will make a good impression no matter what. THat dress could go either way depending on how you accessorize.  If you Fiance is wearing slacks and a polo, you should be able to wear this dress and a pair of sandals (not flip flops) and some earings. Maybe even a jacket with a little “edge” to it.   I agree that price is high for polyester and spandex.  Try a local store and buy a similar style at a better price.  I would stear clear of very short cocktail dresses if you are worried about a good impression and being over dressed.  IMO slack and polos = Sun dresses and sandals, informal attire.
