@Creiddylad:  Depends on the bride. I wouldn’t mind it, but if you have to ask isn’t it best to wear something else just in case?

Some people might think that was okay, but with so many brides opting for white dresses with coloured embellishments, I would steer clear.

@Creiddylad:  My new cousin-in-law literally wore this to my wedding a few weeks ago!  (Are our lives on the same wavelength or what?!)

To be honest, I did think for about 0.2 seconds, “That’s pretty white for a dress at a wedding.”  Then I immediately went back to being like “WHEEEEEEE IT’S MY WEDDING I LOVE EVERYBODY YAYYY!!!!”  Definitely did not bother me at the time or in retrospect.

@Creiddylad:  What a lovely dress! I wouldn’t have thought twice about someone wearing it to my wedding, but some brides are more picky. Do you know the bride well? There’s no harm in asking.

I think it’s pretty but I wouldn’t risk it. Or maybe throw on a colored cardigan over it?

It wouldnt bother me at all but I’m one of those that dont care if a guest did wear white to my wedding (I dont even remember what most of my guests wore!).

This would bother me, sorry. I love wearing white so I’m always sooo tempted to wear white to weddings, but I refrain.

I would definitely use it for an engagement dress though! It’s so pretty!

I think it would be fine with a colored cardigan, colored heels and colorful accessories. Maybe in red, or bright yellow.

@Creiddylad:  I like the idea of buying it to save for a white-dress-related event  Wink  It’s soooo cute – she did look adorable in it.
