I prefer to be in a long gown at black tie functions. However, etiquette does not require you to do so so wear whatever fancy party dress you are comfortable in. Your green dress sounds lovely!

Sounds similar to my wedding, and most of the women wore long gowns with a shawl.

I’m with Habibi, I always wear a long gown to black tie weddings. Your dress sounds beautiful, but I know for me, I tend to notice the few women with short dresses at BT events since the majority wear long dresses.

I would wear a black dress (long or short) or a long evening gown in a darker color such as plum, midnight, emerald, etc.

I think your dress will be lovely!  I agree, you can go long or short, as long as it’s somewhat dressy.  Of course, you can dress it up with jewelry, fancy high heels, and an elegant updo.
