    In my opinion, go for it! Why not, shes just a baby right. I realy don’t think there will be any hard feelings whatsoever. Unless you have some hard ass friends, haha.

    Will she be confused for a flower girl?

    I don’t think it’s an issue as long as she won’t match the flower girls or anything. I’ve never heard of anyone getting really weird about kids wearing white anyways. It’s adorable by the way!

    As long as the flower girl is not in white, I think it would be okay.

    Personally – I wouldn’t put my child in a white dress for a wedding unless they were the flower girl (and that was what the bride wanted).  Even though obviously no one will think a baby/child is a bride or anything – the bride being the only one in white rule is one I refuse to break.

    She’s a child. If the bride goes all bridezilla for a baby being in white then she has issues.

    Oh gosh..She’s a baby, no one is going to critique what she wears!! It’s fine! Its not like it will look exactly like the flower girls, it has a green sash and a pink flower!

    It’s a toss up for me. Personally, I wouldn’t notice or care. But if you’re going to weddings of people who are all about etiquette, I may err on the side of caution.

    Is there some kind of rule about babies wearing white too? I would definitely put her in the dress.

    i would ask the bride what the flower girls are wearing. as long as they’re not in white, that dress is fine.

    @Miss Tattoo: I totally agree. I don’t see them mistaking her for a flower girl at all, and if the bride really gets upset over a baby wearing a white dress…then shame on her!

    I think the whole rule about not wearing white is so that someone doesn’t upstage the bride. I highly doubt any woman in her right mind would feel threatened by an adorable baby in a cute summer dress. I think it’s appropriate and actually pretty practical to dress your child in white for a summer wedding, especially if it will be held outdoors. She’s also pretty young so I doubt she’d be running around on her own enough to get confused for one of the flower girls. I say go for it. I know I personally would not be upset by this at all.
