Showed a friend and she said it looks like it’s for a funeral.

I had it customized to be tea length, 3/4 sleeves and high neck.

To a wedding? Sure, why not?

And around here, that would look ridiculous at a funeral.

Yes and no one I know would wear it to a funeral. Is she one of those that hates black? Who wears a fancy dress to a funeral?

Maybe she thinks that black belongs at funerals, not weddings? But that dress doesn't look suitable for a funeral. You don't need to dress up for a funeral, but something more formal that that dress would be appropriate.

You can wear it for weddings. Maybe with a necklace or something to brighten it up.

It is very black that’s probably why she said that. Can you add a colorful belt?

It looks very wedding like. You can brighten it up with a nice sash and statement shoes.

Please no, black is elegant only when done alone. Sometimes paired with white but that's it.

This would look nice to, however you don't want to pair a rhinestone belt when a dress has black jewels on it. To busy

I think it's pretty!
Be warned though... I've ordered from eshakti and the quality is not always great- it may look cheap and gross in person

It’s probably a way of saying don’t wear black to a wedding.

Can’t speak to the quality or how it will fit you, but I think it looks gorgeous and is very wedding appropriate.

Maybe if you were a very fancy socialite in Connecticut you could wear it to husbands funeral-especially if you were looking for hubby #2, but it is definitely not a funeral dress.

It’s the type of dress a typical wasp lady might’ve worn to a funeral in the 1940’s but also the type a nice Frum lady would wear to a wedding in the 2020’s.

Frum people wear black to weddings. Other demographics wear it to funerals. Depends whose getting married.

I know someone who dressed like that for her grandma funeral. She also wore a pillbox hat with the netting that hangs down over the eyes, and a swing coat. She looked silly. Like a war widow from a 1940s movie.

In 1940.

Nowadays, LBD are de rigeur for all weddings.

I'm more on the D/L side myself, and I'm not allergic to color, unlike a lot of other groups.

I recently went to a very RW Yeshivish wedding, and I was one of the few people who WASN'T wearing black! I was wearing dark green, but by comparison I really stuck out. embarrassed
