    I love both dresses 1 and 2. 1 is classic and beautiful. I love the length of 2 — yes, it’s a showstopper but the length is classy. Not crazy for 11. The length and high contrast don’t appeal to me. I feel it may cut you in two and may make you look too short. BUT choose what you love and can dance in!

    #1 receives my vote! Perfect color, style, and right amount of sparkle for an August event. I love the gold skirt and black one shoulder also. But do you want to wear a dress that looks like you may wear to a holiday party? Don’t get that many opportunities to wear a show stopper dress. I say enjoy it!

    You didn’t ask for commentary, haha, but here I go anyway! First, the exclusions – 5, 8, 9, 10 and 12 appear too afternoon-ish to me either because of the color, fabric, or sleeve cut; not a fan of all-white or all-black for a wedding or wedding anniversary event, so 3 and 7 are out for me even though they look great; the riding up of 6 makes it a hard no; 11 is fabulous on you – I see why it’s Bob’s pick – but the long black sleeve puts it a little out of season (pleeease get it, but for the holidays or a marvelous date night 😇); which leaves 1, 2, and 4. 1 is beautiful and yes, fits you very nicely. Will the sequins and fit handle being seated for dinner? Because the neckline is more casual, I think it needs some great vertical drop earrings (a rectangle to echo the sequins), and dressier shoes if it ends up being your pick. The gold of 2 is wonderful with your skin, very flattering, and a potentially fun nod to the golden anniversary event. Number 4 remains my top choice in a great field, though – the festive dot pattern trumps any concerns about black and white, it fits and flatters you beautifully with no alterations needed, and works well for evening and the event. I don’t think it’s too young at all – the irregular dot pattern takes it out of that realm. You’re going to look fabulous in whatever you wear and Bob will receive his share of envious looks because of it – have fun!

    Well I do like #1 but with no stretch you will be uncomfortable at times.
    Sequins and beads are difficult to sit in. (My background is in theater and costumes)
    #3
    Keep it simple and accessorize.
    I would love to see a giant single flower on that dress somewhere.
    Fab earrings and gold shoes to represent the 50th.
    Remember to let the anniversary couple stand out and shine at this party you don’t wanna look like a movie star at their celebration.😊

      Keep #11 too and host a simple wine and charcuterie holiday cocktail party with a themed photo booth for your guests , and room for dancing to big band retro favorites (how fun), or, have Bob take you to an exquisite dinner and holiday play or concert afterwards. Agree with him, #11 is a stunner on you as well. Keep that one too!

    I vote for #5 all the way. The dress looks lovely on you. The color and flowy fabric are perfect since it is still summertime. You may need a little something over shoulders if the A/C is high. It’s modest enough for the conservative crowd, but a little flirty, too.
    As for #11 – No way! (Sorry Bob). Save that one for New Years Eve.

    Number 1, number 2 and yes number 11 (spousal approval is very important). Number 1 seems the best fit for the event you have described in this post. The color is yummy with your skin and hair tones and the style is very flattering and elegant. It will not detract from anyone else but it will make YOU glow! Get Bob to coordinate with his tie choice.

    I have a lot to say, Suzy Q!

    #1 My fave! The longer length, beadwork, and color are appropriate for the evening and the season. It already fits you perfectly. Creates long lines and a very slimming look. Not everyone can pull that off, but you can. I’m often inclined to wear a more solid color for a more formal event. The beadwork here provides texture and interest to a unique solid color.
    #2 A fun nod to the Golden Anniversary!
    #3 Keep this for a myriad of other occasions.
    #4 I know it already fits you perfectly, and it looks great, but “no” to polka dots for the evening. Save it for a fun daytime event.
    #5 Not unique enough.
    #6 This style is common. While it does flatter your figure, you say that it rides up when you walk. There’s your answer: no.
    #7 My other absolute fave! While this longer length and style is perfect for this event, this would be the most KILLER dress next to a tuxedo’d Bob. Buy it and find an event to showcase yourselves!
    #8 Not special enough.
    #9 My least fave. Washes you out. Gotta be careful of peachy colors against lighter skin tones.
    #10 Too garden partyish for an evening event. Not crazy about that shoulder strap. Looks kinda 8th Grade Cotillion.
    #11 Bob may win here, but this looks like New Year’s Rockin’ Eve! The black long sleeve looks HOT (and I mean sweltering Texas August hot). If you are being photographed from the waist up, you’ll only see black. I agree with another commenter who said that it cuts you in half. Would some sort of simple, sparkly belt be possible? Ask Bob.
    #12 Again, too many garden party, luncheon, and daytime wedding guest vibes.

    To sum it up, you could wear a potato sack and look fabulous (with the right accessories). You seem to be drawn to the one-shoulder look, which does look great on you.

    The bottom line is that your beautiful smile and infectious charm are your most striking ensemble! Truthfully, go with your gut. Which one have you kept on the longest, posed in the mirror more for, and didn’t want to take off? That’s your dress. Enjoy celebrating with and honoring your friends! As you know, I love ya!
