I haven’t really posted around here, but I am an avid reader of all the bee’s blogs and the forums as well. I’m looking to the hive for some help.
I am attending my cousin’s wedding in September. The reception is being held in a hotel. The dress code is sort of casual chic. This is the email my grandmother sent out to all of the family “Hi all, Spoke to K (my cousin’s mom) yesterday and learned that the wedding will be casual. No Tshirts and Jeans but the male wedding group will be wearing chinos and white shirts and ties, no jackets. That helps me in deciding what to wear. Shoes are a requirement. Hope all is well with each and everyone of you. Love gmom”
I bought this dress from Target and I absolutely love it but I’m worried about the white. I was planning on wearing a colorful cardigan over it. What do you guys think?

I think with the cardigan it’ll be okay…but September tends to be warm (depending on where you are) and you might not want to keep it on the whole time.

I think it would be fine even without the cardigan.

I think it will be perfect; with or without the cardigan 🙂

I think it will be fine, even without the cardigan. I can’t imagine anyone mistaking you for the bride.

I think it will be fine if you have the cardigan on the entire time. Imagine if you were to take a picture with the bride (from the chest up)…It would look kind of silly since it would look like you were also wearing a white dress.

I think you’re absolutely fine. When people say not to wear white at a wedding out of respect for the bride, I think this is more what they are referring to (LOL):

I think that dress is fine. If it is too warm to wear a cardigan, maybe accessorizing with a chunky purple or black necklace to break up the white on the dress.

How nice of you to consider the bride’s feelings. It looks like a beautiful dress and I am sure she will appreciate your consideration. Looks fine to me.

I think the dress is perfectly fine to wear 🙂

I think the cardigan helps just to punch it up a little…looks kind of bland without a pop of color! Consideration to the bride-wise, I think that even without the cardigan is fine. The dress is predominantly black, since the skirt hits high on the waist. I wouldn’t worry!

I think it would be fine! I had an aunt wear an all white dress, shoes, and accessories, that was not so fine! lol
