I don’t see why that would be any problem. It’s not somber enough to be seen as funeral gear & not white enough to compete with the bride.

@pinkybunny:  If you were coming to my wedding, I’d think that’s fine, but I’m not too uptight about “what guests can or cannot wear.” As long as it’s tasteful, not all white or ivory, and isn’t some evening ballgown, I think it’s ok!

YES!! I might suggest a colored cardigan in the color scheme of the wedding. B/W dress can totally pull off  colored cardigan which can be worn until the dancing starts. From one busty hourglass hourglass to another, I would rock totally rock this dress too!!

I think it’s fine, but you can always ask the brides to make sure.

I think it’s great. I do hang pretty closely to the idea of not wearing anything white or all black to a wedding, but it really doesn’t fall into either of those rules. It’s very wedding appropriate.

I think it’s totally appropriate.

If you’re trying to please conservative wedding guests, this is not the way to go. My conservative mother would have a heart attack. If the colors were reversed, you could at least cover the white with a jacket but no.
