Is it okay to wear a champagne colored dress to a wedding?
Is it okay to wear a champagne colored dress to a wedding? It's an afternoon wedding (2pm) for my boyfriend's friend from law school. I haven't met any of them before, and I'd like to look hot but still classy. I looked all over town and couldn't find any dresses! This was the only one I liked online, http://www.fredericks.com/promo/haltersplash.asp , because I liked you could tie to differently to get different looks and I thought it was pretty but the knee length was good, and the price was good. I bought it in champagne because the red would be too bold, the black too fancy, the blue looked cheap and the coral was hideous. But now I'm afraid champagne is too similiar to white, and wearing white to a wedding is so faux pas. I want to make a good impression. Is this dress okay? And what color shoes/accesories... pale gold or copper (to add color)?
Opinions please! The wedding is saturday! http://www.fredericks.com/promo/haltersplash.asp
Something to keep in mind... since I looked all over town and found NOTHING, I have already ordered this dress (with the overnight shipping for 30.00 so it would be here on thursday) so if you don't think it would be appropriate, perhaps you could suggest accesorizing, hair styles, ideas, that could compliment it to make it more appropriate? Thanks
I think the champagne is ok, but the blue would be better for your concern.
As for looking hot, I am a guy and thik that dress would look great on my wife, so I assume it will look good on you.
Oh, and since I am a guy, you may want to ask someone else about the color issue. :)
Should be alright, if the bride or her mother aren't in the same color. You'd better ask someone, though.
I'd skip the metallic colors, myself.
yes it is ok-but u shouldnt wear white---the bride is supposed to---
This dress is great! Shoes...not copper but take the dress with you and try some neutral metallics
Champagne would look nice.. but I would ask others who are attending the wedding that you might know, what colors they plan on wearing. The dress is fine, for shoes, I wouldn't get something too flashy, you don't want to draw attention away from the bride.
the dress looks beautiful try to get gold accesories
I would avoid champagne... or any other white, off-white or black dress.
Weddings are tricky business. Of course you want to look nice to make a great first impression with your boyfriend's friends. Believe me, taking a chance on putting the bride off is not a good way to do that!
Better to be underdressed than over-dressed to an afternoon wedding, a nice pantsuit or dress is appropriate... nothing too formal-looking. Pick a neutral color that looks good on you, pastels, blues, greens, and such work great. Knee length is good, you are right on there.
You obviously know in your heart that the idea is to not take the focus off the bride. And you know etiquette pretty well. Don't make the "gray area" mistake. Then, you avoid the risk of offending anyone completely.
NO, please don't wear that dress. My best friend wore a champagne color wedding dress and I always wanted the same. If she wears anything but snow white, it'll be bad. If you wore that dress to my wedding, I'd be a little upset, because you get to be sexy AND your in my color! If you can find out if the bride is wearing white, then maybe, but I still say it's too close.Just remember, it's her day.
It looks good. I think you should get black (preferably) or champagne. If you get black, wear a silky black clutch, gold jewelry, and pumps(open toed) with a red pedi-mani.If you wear champagne, use a silky black clutch, silver jewelry, and open toed black pumps, and a french mani-pedi. Wear you hair up to show off your back. Maybe a loose curly ponytail with a flower in it.
