dress, yes. shoes, no. They don’t go with the dress, and I like the dress more.

jessi.kissinger:  No i don’t think a nude one would. I think a plain black pump would be fine. I also don’t know if that dress is cocktaily enough for black tie. But, it’s too late to change your mind so I would stick with blakc shoes

I’m not sold on those shoes. I think a plain nude or black shoe would be better.

the dress is more casual (because of the crochet and the color) and would clash w fancy/blingy shoes. 

To fancify it a bit- instead, go classic. Do your hair in a sleek classic updo (like an Audrey Hepburn bun), wear simple silver jewelry, a sleek black clutch, and sleek black pumps (like Sam edelmans w a bare instep).

Since the wedding is black tie optional I do not think this dress is formal enough.  It kind of reminds me of something oyu would wear to a club.  If people do decide to go black tie there will be men in tuxedos and women in gowns.  I would recommend an LBD since it is much easier to dress up.

First of all, you have a fantastic body and that dress looks great on you!  I agree with the PP, the sparkly shoes, combined with a very formfitting dress, make the oufit more appropriate for a club than a black tie optional aka fancy cocktail reception.

I second the opinion that that dress is a little casual for the occasion.  Is there any way you can wear another dress, perhaps made with higher quality material such as silk, satin, etc?
