    I think it’s fine. It reads as a “print” not a white dress.

    I say no but only because it looks extremely casual.

    Many print, summer dresses have white backgrounds.  It’s fine.

    I agree with gelaine. It looks way too casual.

    I agree with both OPs: on one hand I don’t think it’s is really a white dress…to me it’s more of a print dress with some white lol if that makes sense.

    However, I also think it is too casual for a church/country club wedding.

    BrownPlaidBook:  i think its too casual. Its not about the color, its just not something I would wear to a wedding. If it was in a barn or a BBQ wedding, maybe, but not a formal wedding at a country club

    With lovely jewelry, a nice cardigan, and heels, you can easily dress it up enough to be country club appropriate. I say go for it 🙂 Nice dress.

    BrownPlaidBook:  I say no. First of all, it looks super casual. Second, yes you might love the dress, but there are millions of other dresses out there, so why choose white.

    I think its fine especially since the bride said that maxi dresses were fine. I would just dress it up a bit with nice accessories.
