    Default Formal wedding dress code

    I am going to a wedding next month and the dress code is formal. To me that means long dresses, suits. I have found a long dress that I love but I just feel it is too formal, I've actually seen bridesmaids in a similar style and I don't want to look like a wannabe bridesmaid! This is the dress http://www.forcast.com.au/products/dresses/going-out/madison-chiffon-dressToo formal? If you had a formal dress code what did most of the woman wear? Or what have you worn to a formal wedding?

    I think its lovely. I had a formal wedding a most of the ladies wore longer dresses. Maybe keep your hairstyle and jewerly a bit more casual if you are worried.

    We had an after 5/formal dress code at our wedding and all the men wore suits and the women wore mainly cocktail dresses both long and short.

    If in doubt, I would ask the couple inviting you, we had a lot of people clarifying with us as to what we meant exactly and it was all good on the day.

    (The picture you have posted is perfect for a formal wedding IMO, very pretty).

    I went to a formal dress coded wedding on the weekend, this is what we wore - my dress was almost full length, it stopped halfway down my calves and DP also had a suit jacket. Some ladies were more dressed up, some dressed down. I don't think the dress you have chosen is to OTT, there were heaps at the wedding I attended with very similar dresses.

    I agree ^ ... as long as you dont look like the bridal party you should be fine!

    Like a pp said you to be less formal you could keep your hair more casual, and understated jewellry (low messy bun style, or something - stll nice lol!).
