Fancy cocktail-length dress, not a gown. Black or color is fine. You will see a lot of flowy dresses and metallics. Many summer parties in Deal are outdoors, so consider that when choosing your footwear.

Pretty but these dresses would be challenging and expensive to line/make tznius or wear a shell under would be tough

Op just wear a pretty tznius fancy shabbos dress or dress you usually wear to weddings.

I'm not sefardi, so that might be a whole other style. I just recently went to an MO wedding as friends of the parents of the kallah and almost all the women my age (40s) were wearing fancy cocktail length dresses. There were lots of florals and some plainer or more geometric. Most women wore light colors but my black dress was not the only dark one there.

I must run in very different circles because only very close family members (think mother or sister of the bride) would wear a dress this fancy

This is gorgeous!
You don’t have a fashion sense but you wear Gucci dresses?? You obviously do have a sense of style Wink

I would look at Jewish weddings posted by hair/makeup/photographers on Instagram who are servicing this kind of wedding — it will give you a wide variety of ideas, and you likely have something already in your closet that can work!

Wouldn’t these makeup artist take pics of the bride and the family
I’m just a guest
I don’t need to dress in a gown

The wedding is a modern wedding
DH and I will not stay after chuppah since there most probably be mixed dancing

My question is - is the flowery dress appropriate because it is summer
or does it need to be a cocktail style dress
Also, if cocktail is black most appropriate or not done in the summer.

BTW- I bought the flowery dress at a sample sale for $35 not knowing it was a Gucci knockoff
Mine is missing the bow so I went on line looking for the bow.
That’s when I found it’s a Gucci knockoff
I just bought it becauce I liked it .

Depends on the crowd. Tznius? Some of these weddings can be a wide range. I went to weddings there where you had women very exposed mingling with very tznius women and it’s OK however you come. (I also went to Deal yeshivish weddings which were mostly frum styles, but doesn’t seem you asked about that.) I think a midi flowy light colored dress as is in style now will be nice.

I go to a lot of weddings with mixed dancing. The mixed dancing is usually at the end, after the meal. During the meal there is seperate dancing. But this is not in the USA, maybe it is different over there.
