Thats a lush dress

Personally think its a bit dressy though

Personally yes I think its a bit much

Depends on the dress code.

It's very similar to a monsoon dress my youngest daughter wore as bridesmaid at her big sisters wedding.

Dress code was evening dress there.

awww i really really love it,.the wedding is in June and was going to dress it down with some nice flat sandles and chunky jewelry

Yes its beautiful but i have to agree its a little too like a wedding dress especially in a light colour like silver. If you stood near the bride you may look better than her, not a good idea especially a friend.

If it had have been a new years do or something like that not a wedding i would have said it was beautiful and go for it but not to a wedding.

How about this? It looks like the same dress but in blue- the colour looks gorgeous. Type maxi into the search box and they seem to have quite a few.

You are lucky- these sort of things are always about 6 inches too long for me!

the blue is beautiful and will flatter any colouring:thumbsup:

Its not thats its to dressy it s the fact of it being that colour if it was a different colour it would be fine

I have a wedding to go to in the summer (mil) and i was going to wear a full length one from monsoon but have now got a completeley different dress from forever unique

how about something like that. theres a few maxi dresses on there that are quite nice.

The dress is gorgeous, but it's in the bridal section for a reason...

I love the green one at the bottom of the page, very jealous as I'm 5ft 0" and could never wear anything like that!

Ask the bride.

:whistling:

The dress is lovely, but I do agree that it's too bride-like to wear to the wedding....the bride might not want to upset you by saying "please don't wear it!" if you're good friends...I'd say don't wear it! Buy it and save it for YOUR OWN wedding (or renewing your vows!) if you love it so much! :-)
