    While the dress is not all white like I expected and I would be totally fine with someone wearing that to my wedding, it might be better safe than sorry to wear a dress that isn’t mostly white. or is it a wedding where you know the bride well enough to ask her if it’s ok?

    Its fine. It’s black, pink and white so it’s cool.

    I wiuldn’t blink an eye.  Your dress in no way looks bridal.   But some people are really touchy on this subject.

    @marjojo:  as long as the dress is not solid white, I think it’s fine. It’s a colorblock dress and I have worn something similar to a wedding with no issue.

    Will you be in formal photographs with the bride? I’m one of the girls who’s way weird about people wearing white. It’s not about guests being confused, because your dress looks no way bridal, but it’s about contrast and focal points in the pictures.

    I wouldn’t worry about it. Since it’s tonight I don’t imagine you have time to go shopping anyway.
