I wouldn’t wear it either. Maybe add a poll?

It shouldn’t be an issue.  It doesn’t look bridal at all, you’ll be safe.

I wouldn’t wear it because of the white, and also because it doesn’t look formal to me.

Too short for “formal.”

just to be safe, I wouldnt (because of the white, and because it may not really be formal enough)

I personally wouldn’t wear it, but I had some people wear black and white to my wedding, and I didn’t care. I know that no one was actually trying to “upstage” me, the dresses were a similar to style to the one you posted.
