    matron of honor dress?

    Advertisements
    I bought a dress today that I was thinking of wearing to my sister's wedding (I'm the MoH) but now I'm wondering if it's formal enough. For reference it's an evening wedding in September and this is the venue:
    DANK HAUS
    sample image:


    The wedding colors are red/white/black so I picked a black gown, here's the pics:





    I got it on sale for SUPER cheap so maybe that's why I'm concerned about formality but I just want to make sure it looks nice enough. My sister said she liked it just fine so I guess that's the important thing! But if it's not appropriate I can take it back and buy a different gown.

    Also, if you like it, how would you accessorize it?

    I love it!

    I'd throw on some diamonds and red heels with it.

    I think you can make it more formal with accessories. Make sure the shoe is strappy and elegant--not anything even a little clunky. Wear the highest heel you can stand. Go with very formal accessories, like diamonds or something sparkly but not chunky.

    If your sister likes it, I think that's all that matters.

    Looks good, it looks like a formal gown to me. I'd do a nice necklace and bracelet but nothing chunky like PP said.

    I love it! It's pretty versatile, I would do red heels and pearls. Maybe a neutral shoe and a red belt or sash.

    Hmm ok I'm good with using accessories to pretty it up!

    I'm thinking wear my hair up and I have these earrings left over from a military ball (sorry if pic is huge):


    Most of my jewelry is just sterling silver but I can find some sparkly stuff! And maybe a sparkly clutch too?


    I don't think it shows up in the pic very well but it has a drop waist and the body is ruched so I don't think I can wear a belt/sash with it ...

    I really like it. I agree with Amanda, I think pearls would be lovely with a neutral shoe.
