What To Wear? Dress Help PLEASE!!! Picture Added: Please be Nice!!! DRESS FOUND, THANKS! Here Ya Go Sassy, Thanks!

Ok I know I have many more months, but I need to budget a dress in & start looking now bc there is really nothing around here so I have to shop online or drive into Nashville which isn't always easy to do.  I mean there are a few shops around here, but even when I was helping my friend w/her wedding the selection was not that great.

Anyway, I have a Military Ball to go to in February.  This is their "spring" ball but early bc they are deploying.

Now I had gone back & forth: lighter dress bc it is "spring" or darker bc it is still February.

Now I run into the dilema of the fact that Aunt Flo will be in town bc she decided to change my cycle and start coming earlier than normal, stupid Aunt Flo.  So now I'm not real sure I want to do light at all.

This is also my first Ball.  We had a "formal" when he graduated Officer School & that was easy.

Can you ladies please help me w/ideas for what to wear!!!!  Thanks:)

Don't really have any decent pics of just me so this is the best I have (I am the one in the dress):

EDIT:  This is the dress I have chosen:)  Thanks everyone!

Do dark. The majority of women will be in colors that match their men's uniforms. At least that's how every military ball Ive ever been to was like that. (been to 3)

Okay-

Tone down the eye makeup.

I think you'd be a knockout in a burgundy-ish color.

Do a long silhouette.

I'm going to google a picture and post it for an idea.
