I’m having some trouble deciding on what to wear to a NYE wedding! The bride is a very close friend of mine. I am not a Bridesmaid or Best Man, just her 2 sisters who are wearing very sexy silver sequin/sparkly backless dresses…definitely not typical Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. They are very hot and very fashion forward, lol! I don’t want to compete with them in the sparkle area (they would win hands down). It is a formal wedding, not necessarily black tie but probably the most formal wedding I will go to. The groom will be in full tux plus it’s NYE so I feel like everyone’s fashion game will be stepped up a notch!
Do you think I should go full length gown? Or short and sexy? Or short with tights (winter in Chicago). It’s an evening wedding starting at 6pm in a gorgeous location (not a church). No formal sit down dinner but more like food stations and tall cocktail tables with tons of drinks so we’ll be standing and dancing all night. Skin tight is not a look I can pull off, BTW!
Here is what I have come up with during my limited research

I’d go with #1. If it’s not officially “black tie,” I bet most women will be in short dresses. That dress looks awesome and it’s totally a NYE dress, but not completley over the top. And since it’s short, you can probably wear it again!

@Lily_of_the_valley: Pissaro Nights makes some gorgeous dresses – I tried to post one I saw on Macy’s web site but only got a blank photo. It was the dark blue long sleeved beaded sequin sheath.

@anneh1990: I was kinda thinking the same thing…definitely don’t want to be the only one sporting a full gown!

I like 1 or 2. Maybe ask some of the other guests what they’re wearing. If some others are wearing long dresses, go with #2 (if you like long dresses) and have fun. You’ll feel very glam.
#3 seems a bit too ordinary to me even though it’s sequins.

@canuckandakiwi: I wish I knew other guests! I only know her 2 sisters and I’m friendly with a couple others but not friends.

@little_d: me neither! I’m excited to have actual fun plans on NYE this year! Downtown Chicago, free food, free booze, good music and good people….not a bad way to ring in the new year!
