My DH's cousin is getting married in June. It is a evening wedding and my DD is the flower girl. I'm going to be seeing a lot of people that I haven't seen in a long time and I'm really proud of how much weight i have lost. I've been looking for the perfect dress and it turns out that I found one in my closet. I've owned it for about 3 years but have never worn it because I was to fat. The only problem is that it si red, like fire engine red. It's not slutty, the hem falls below the knee, the back is high, it has a v neck but it is not low cut. There is enough coverage that I can wear a regular bra under it. It just makes me look nice and curvy. Is it wrong to wear red to a wedding. I'm not sure if that is appropriate or not.

Also if you think I should wear the red, what color shoes should I get? Red to match or would black work? Any other color suggestions?

I have been told that wearing red points you out to be a hussy at  a wedding. Times have changed so I really dont know. I would never red to a wedding, but that is just me

I dont see anything wrong with wearing red unless the wedding colors and/or bridesmaid dresses are red.  I would also wear the dress with either silver or black open toed shoes.  Trying to match up the reds will be really hard.  If you are really concerned about it, I would call the bride herself and ask her if its ok.  Some brides are weird about certain things but I say as long as your not wearing a long white dress it shouldnt matter.

I just read that a red dress takes away from the bride because its such an eye popping  color

As long as its not one of the brides "colors" for her wedding id ont see why not. If you have reservations, i would ask the bride herself

I have wore a red dress to a few weddings.. I didnt know you were supposed to or that there was anything wrong with it.. No one ever said anything to me.. I think as long as the bridesmaids dresses arent red it should be fine..

I had 3 people at my wedding wear red... one older Aunt, it was a skirt and jacket, but still red. She did hope it didn't bug me and it didn't. I also had a friend of a friend that wear a red skirt... and a old girlfriend of my hubby's that wear a red to kill for dress... haha I thought it was funny that she did that.. as she was still trying to get him back!!! Married 15 years!!

I would say wear it unless it's the wedding colors

Yeah, and the bride's only supposed to wear white if they're a virgin but that color rule went out the window too! lol
