Dress Hunting

My brother-in-law is getting married on June 28 and I am in desperate need of some ideas for what to wear.... so I figured I'd turn to my lovely readers for help!

Their wedding is on a Sunday; church ceremony and they rented out an Italian restaurant for the reception. I believe it's an afternoon wedding... so what's the protocol on that? Knee length dress? Ryan is in the wedding, and I think the guys are wearing suits instead of tuxes. Tan suits, maybe? Or grey? I have no idea. I do know that I want something colorful ('m usually a LBD type of girl, but I'm trying to branch out).

I'm hoping for something with a full skirt (they're more fun) but don't have any preference for the top, except that I don't do cap sleeves. I guess I should just wander around the mall, but that's how I get myself into trouble - the most expensive dress always fits the best, ya know? Here's some I've been thinking about....

It's a J.Crew. But is it dressy enough for a wedding? I have no idea... I really would prefer to not spend more than $100, and even then I'd love to spend less if possible. Moving on...



These 4 are from Victoria's Secret. The yellow one might show wayyyyy too much boob on me, but it's cute. Not wedding cute. Maybe it's road trip cute. Hmmm. I really like the red one (third one down), but it's the Convertable Dress and I'm wondering if it really looks like that in person. Now that I'm looking at it, the pink one isn't really "me". The black one looks like fun, but it's made of Jersey knit and might not be as flattering on me as it is on the model.

What a pain.... help me out, ladies. What would you wear to your brother-in-law's Sunday afternoon wedding?

Love the first pink one and I think it is perfect for a wedding. Just put some pearls or dressier jewelery with it. Beautiful!
