FI and I are going to a wedding in a couple of weeks. I have a few dresses that MIGHT work, but I'm not 100% feeling they are fancy enough. I've been to Dressbarn, David's Bridal, Dillards, and Macy's looking. I just feel that everything is either Too Formal or Not Formal Enough - where the heck is the 'in between' stuff?
About the wedding:
The Wedding Ceremony is at 2:00pm
The Reception/Cocktail hour starts at 6pm
-- I think the time is what is confusing me a bit too; if it was 2pm followed by like a 4 or 5pm cocktail hour/reception - the dresses I'm saying are 'Not formal enough' would work and if it was a 4pm wedding with a 6pm cocktail hour/reception the 'Too Formal' probably would work.
--The other thing throwing me off is that I would probably take one of the 'not formal enough' dresses and add a couple pieces of jewelry and a pair of pretty heels to it and 'there ya go' - I'm not allowed to wear heels at the moment (and I'm not a huge fan of flats).
