Playing dress up.

Since my wedding is a Friday afternoon I obviously will not be wearing a giant ballgown or have a lengthy train...but what I am wondering is what is the line for dresses that if crossed I would look the other side of crazy. I've shown you the Jenny Yoo dresses that I adore and I know that they are daytime high tea appropriate. BUT...what if I wanted a dress that was slightly more formal would I look like a nutbar? Say a dress like this one:

or this one.....
Too fancy right? I'm mostly in love with the polka dot tulle at the bottom of the second one, seriously polka dots on anything = LOVE. I have a fear that I will try on a dress just like one of these and fall in love.

I think the first one would be totally appropriate, gorgeous. Anything that's too long and full looks overly formal. But one that has a more slimmer silhouette looks amazing... You could also go with a short dress ;) I love short dresses!

So pretty! I'm with Margarita...I think a short/tea length dress might be the solution...formal yet fun.

Oh I'm strictly thinking shorter dresses all the ones on my "find it and try it" list are all short and I've always wanted a shorter dress but I'm going to try on longer dresses just for fun...I also just noticed that the first dress has a train...I tend to fall for one thing about a dress like the top part on that one and the polka dot tulle on the other and completely ignore most of the rest of it!!
