Is it tacky to wear a white A-line dress to prom? It’s floor length A line, with black lace trim on the top and bottom. But it’s very little lace. It is supposed to be a wedding gown. But it’s more of a dark ivory color than it is white.

No, I do not think so at all. One of my dresses for prom was actually a wedding dress, no one knew that though 🙂

I would have to see the dress to give a real opinion, but it might be ok if there is no train or anything. Maybe a black sash could be added with black sparkly jewelry and black shoes/purse.

@tksjewelry: Thanks. I think i can wear it to prom, add it with a black sash, black sparkly jewelry and black shoes/purse. It sounds nice to my dress.

I’d say if it doesn’t have a train, and you have colored accessories, go for it! I really wanted a white prom dress myself back in the day. 🙂

I wore a white princess style to winter formal when I was in high school. I agree as long as it doesn’t have a train and doesn’t look too wedding dressy, it’s probably fine.

I wore a white dress to prom! Although it was knee-length…. but I digress.
A long white dress should be fine as long as it doesn’t look too bridal. There’s no way to tell without seeing it myself, but I can picture it looking very prom if styled correctly. (No other white accessories, for one. I’d stay away from pearls too, as they seem more wedding than prom. Rhinestones and black accents like you’re planning sounds great!)

Nah, so long as it doesn’t look like you’re trying to send your date a not-so-subtle, ‘See how nice I’d look in a wedding dress?’ hint, I think you’re fine. 🙂 Now, if you were going to wear that same dress to your cousin’s black-tie wedding, I’d have a different opinion.

Well, you are right. As long as it doesn’t look too bridal, all concerns are on my own. Rhinestones and black accents can actually styles it prom.

A girl I went to school with wore a white dress with black detailing to our year 12 formal. Everyone called her “the bride”. You know how stupid kids are, even kids who think they aren’t kids anymore.

Around here, the seniors are supposed to wear white to prom, and the juniors wear colored dresses. All floor length. If an underclassman goes, as the date to an upperclassman, thier dress is supposed to be colored and short. I went against the rules and wore a black floor length dress with white trim. (All my friends thought it looked awesome.) That being said, I think the dress you described sounds perfect.
At our prom (many many years ago) one of the seniors showed up in a wedding gown with a bouquet! Turns out, her and her boyfriend had gotten married right before the prom! We all thought it was great. And they are still happily married!

At my prom (10 years ago) ther were 2 girls wearing actual wedding dresses and 2 other girls weaing the same white and silver ball gown. One of the girls in a wedding dress had a date in tails and they gave each other rings as presents. It was kind of weird since she constantly denied that they were more than friends and then did this promise ring type thing. In the end, they are not together and as you may imagine, everyone still rembers that she wore the wedding dress.
