Are 2 piece or cut out dresses inappropriate to wear to a wedding as a guest?


2 piece or cut out dresses are EVERYWHERE! I was even surprised to see them in stores (Laura, for example) geared for older women! LOVE the look of them, but I'm wondering if it would be inappropriate to wear one to a wedding as a guest? 
I do know I could find a dress that didn't have either, but I've been looking for weeks and I hate spending money on a dress I know I'll never wear again whereas I know I'd wear any of these more than once.

What do you think?

...I think if you wore a jacket over it for the ceremony, one of those would be lovely for the reception! (I looooove the 1st one!)

I love them all! The third one is a little beachy looking and the second one IMO, is too dark for a wedding.

The first one is perfect in my opinion. Adore it. And it's perfectly acceptable because of how classy it looks!

I love the first one! It's beautiful, stylish and I think it's fine for a wedding. If the ceremony's in a church, maybe wear a shawl or sweater over top but for the reception or non-church ceremony I think it's fine!

I think the first one and last one are very cute, they're maxi skirts so they don't actually show that much skin, the second one is a cute design with nice fabric but I think the skirt is an awkward length for the style.I would say the first one is my favourite but the last one would be very cute for a more casual summer wedding. I wouldn't say they're inappropriate at all, it's not like you're wearing a skin tight mini skirt with a cropped top.

Just consider what the wedding theme is, and make sure you're dressed appropriately for it. I'm sure any of your choices would be fine - and the bride and groom are going to be more focused on one another than if one of their guests has a little tummy or side showing! Lol

2 pieces

Sure, I think they're classy and not offensive or in bad taste.

All those dresses look great! I don't think it's inappropriate.

Yes, carefully.

I think it would be awesome, provided the gap between the top and bottom is not too big.

I personally prefer the first dress. It shows just the right amount of skin and still looks the most appropriate for a wedding. Just the right amount of color that won't distract from the bride. The last one would be great if it was a beach themed wedding, since it's more laid back and the top does look more bikini-like.

I'm not feeling the second dress for such an event. The top part looks a little like lingerie to me - maybe better suited for a girl's night out.

With that being said, wear whatever you feel is best. This is just what I would do in that situation, but you have to be comfortable in whatever you choose.

I think the first and the third are super pretty! I don't think they would be inappropriate to wear to a wedding at all!
