As an officer in Starfleet why wasn't she in her dress uniform?
Being married in her Dress Uniform would've been most appropriate and agreeable, indeed! What I suspect is that this was pretty much the only oppportunity, really, to show Deanna all dolled up, to underline for the audience why Shinzon might take such a fancy to her, later on. But even with that logic involved, the dress still looked "wrong" on her. Something much simpler, classier and more elegant should've been employed ... it looks like a Prom dress.
My sister and her husband were active duty military when they got married. Neither one wore a uniform in the ceremony.
Did they wear something? She was also wearing civilian outfits at her mother's wedding in season 5. (Of course, it was before Chain of Command.) The "regular" procedure would have been only one ceremony on the Enteprise and not two ceremonies on two different planets, but forcing two Starfleet officers to have a wedding by the book would have been really innappropriate.

Re: Riker's Wedding

I never understood why they married the characters to begin with?

Did the ceremony really have a great impact on the plot??? No.

I thought that having them marry was very emotionally satisfying, but then I was a big fan of Troi and Riker as a couple. It was completely natural that they'd finally gotten to that point in their lives. It served the plot to have everyone together, including Worf.

Because it was a long time coming, and it made sense given the re-kindling of their relationship in "Insurrection."

Not really but it allowed Picard to make his 'family' speech which always gets me misty eyed when I watch it

It gives the context: Riker and Troi are leaving the Enterprise, Beverly too, Data gonna be the next XO. It's the end of the team.

It was something that was long awaited though. Riker and Troi were a hot item since 1987 so it's one of the very small things they got right in this film.
