Out of an abundance of caution, I wouldn’t wear it.

I think it’s just fine. It fits the setting you described, and it isn’t too white or bridal at all.

Sabrina103:   That’s still a lot of white.  Out of respect for the bride, I’d suggest choosing another dress.

I think it is fine. especially because it has a print. If it were just plain white I would say no way. It’s very pretty.

It’s best to err on the side of caution. The first thing I saw was white dress not floral dress. I think it may be wise to wear a different dress.<br />

Sabrina103:  That is a very cute dress but I wouldn’t wear it unless if I had a different coloured jacket to wear over the top for the duration of the wedding. I mean, if you wore that to my wedding as a guest I wouldn’t think badly of it but the bride could be wearing a white/off white/ivory dress and your colours may turn out similar.

Sabrina103:  If it was my wedding it wouldn’t bother me, but some brides really don’t like any white at all! without knowing the bride it’s tough to say.. do you think she’s the type of person to be upset at something like that? Personally I think it’s fine but if you want to be absolutely sure, go a safer option!

It wouldn’t bother me but if the bride was touchy I would say to wear a cropped cardigan on top with a different colour, or a shawl in a different colour.

Sabrina103:  I personally wouldn’t mind (it’s not like anyone’s going to confuse you for the person in the long white dress being bombarded by loved ones!) but some brides are really touchy about this. 

And even if some brides aren’t touchy about it, sometimes family members of the bride are really touchy about it. For example, while I wouldn’t think twice about it, my grandmom would side-eye it left and right.

I’d pick something different, even if the bride is laid back!

A friend wore white to my shower and it bothered me. Definitely would not wear to a wedding.
