I think it is too light coloured, but I’m sure others might disagree with me.

I agree that it’s too light colored. I tend to wear brighter colors to weddings rather than paler colors.

@queenbridetobee:  I think it’s fine as long as it is an evening reception.

I also think it is too light, but I wouldn’t be shocked if I saw someone wearing it at a wedding either. I personally stay away from all white/champagne/beige tones when attending a wedding.

@queenbridetobee:  I think it looks like a lot of the blush/sparkly bridesmaid dresses you see these days. As long as you wear some dark or bright colored shoes (bright red shoes would look wonderful with this!) and perhaps some splashy colored jewelry, I think it is fine.

@queenbridetobee:  I would probably just wear something else. Avoid drama at all costs.

I think it looks like a great cocktail dress.  I’m not one to get bent out of shape about guest attire and think people need to stop with the whole “only the bride gets to be in white!!!” but understand I’m in the minority.  If it were white/ivory/cream then sure, I would understand why some people would have a problem.  But you don’t also get to say no beige/gold/silver/blush/pink/pastel etc etc because it is “too close” to white.

I don’t see it as inappropriate. I just don’t think it’s a flattering dress to begin with. If you like it though and feel like you’d be happy in it, then get it. I don’t buy into certain colors for certain events unless it’s specified (i.e. “little black dress”). I personally would hate wearing something “spring” colored.

@queenbridetobee:  I think this is fine for a wedding, it’s a really pretty dress and definitely not too light especially with the silver beading.  A silver shoe would look pretty or a nude.

I LOVE it! I think if it were all-over beighe it would be too close to white for me, but there’s a TON of silver on it. It doesn’t look bridal at all!

As long as it’s an evening wedding.

It is pretty pale….I’d err on the side of caution and stay away from anything that could be considered anywhere near bridal.

@queenbridetobee:  I love it!  If a guest wore that to my wedding I’d stop her and ask her where she got it.

I wouldn’t care if someone wore that to my wedding – it’s quite pretty and in no way looks bridal or upstages the bride. I say go for it! 🙂
