Just found this beautiful cover up tonight at a sample sale in my town (for only $5, score!). I love it! I’m attending 3 weddings this fall. Would it be rude to wear this as a guest? I would wear it over a colored cocktail dress, so it’s not like I’d be wearing all white. But my concern is it looks too bridal, especially since it has some beading on it. So what do you think, bees?
sorry for the blurry iphone pic!

As long as the underlying dress is colored, I see no problem with it.

Seconded! With a colored dress, I can’t see this being inappropriate. It’s not like you’re wearing it with a white satin gown!

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy: I agree. The fact that you are asking, means you probably can judge once your outfit it together whether it’s appropriate or not for the event. I wish I found that for $5 in my town!

I don’t see anything wrong with white cover-ups at weddings! It is very different than wearing an all-white outfit!
I often bring along white pashminas to weddings!

I probably wouldn’t wear it as a guest because I have a lace bolero to wear to my wedding. If someone showed up in that, we’d probably look like we coordinated, and while I don’t care enough to get worked up about it, I would probably gripe about it later privately to my FI (well, husband at that point haha).
It’s beautiful, though!

Do you jnow if the bride is wearing a bolero of any kind? Is she the type who you think would be offended if you wore it? I think this could depend on the situation! I wouldn’t mind and especially if the dress was colored, I’d say you’ll probably be a-okay.
Good luck 😉

I think it’s probably fine as long as it’s over a color dress… but it does have a bridal feel about it and that would make me a bit uncomfortable wearing it as a guest (but I am extra careful about those things). It’s gorgeous by the way!
