I need some opinions please!

So I need some opinions from you ladies. I need to know if this outfit is wedding appropriate for an indoor wedding at a hotel, and an indoor wedding at a convention center? I couldn't find a dress that was closer to knee length that fits me that didn't cost about $100. I just can't affrod that right now. I don't want to look trampy. I hope that the dress length isn't a problem. I don't know the first couple, the groom is my fiance's friend that I have never met. I don't want to make a bad first impression.

I was going to accessorize the dress differently for each wedding. I ended up getting a lot of dark jewelry because that's just what I normally wear. I also got a little black lace bolero to cover my shoulders.

I wanted to get purple jewelry to wear to the first wedding (October 10th), and some fall colors to wear to the second wedding (October 23rd?, I think). I couldn't find any purple accessories that I liked. :( I have some time to find some fall colors, but will they work with this mostly black outfit???

So....what do you think? I could really use some input.

I also have to add that this will be the first time that I will be wearing a cocktail dress in 8 years...but I think I can do it.

I love the bolero.

The dress poofs out in the belly when I sit, but I think it will be ok. Right?
The back is really cute!

I think it looks great and is not trashy at all.  If you were showing lots of boob too that would be a different story.  When you wear a short skirt but keep the girls covered it looks way classier.  You should consider gold or silver jewellery for a rich look.

I think it is super cute!  I wouldn't think it inappropriate at all.  I love the accessories.  I say go for it!

No, I really don't think you'll make a bad first impression.. it's still quite modest up top and I think the bolero will only help that glam look (rather than clubby).

I think you look really nice! I think any colour accessories would be well set off. You look great!

I can't tell you how much I appreciate everyone's input. This is the first time I have dressed up like this in a REALLY long time. I'm a bit nervous because it's out of my comfort zone, but I'm working on morphing out of  "Mommy mode" and into becoming someone new. The first wedding (Oct 10th) will be the first time I have ever dressed up like this for an event like a wedding. I wore a cute dress to a club once, when I was 18, and I have never even been to a formal dance! I'm just going to do it. Thank you, I feel much better.

I think you look great! Not inappropriate at all! Show off those legs, you look fab! Yes, fall colours will def work with this outfit  - almost any colours will but purple, deep cherry red, even oranges - pumpkins and yellows will work. You can rock anything with black :)
