I personally wouldn’t care if someone wore that to my wedding, however, as a guest I probably wouldn’t wear it just to be safe.

I wouldnt only because it doesnt look dressy enough.

I think it’s fine, especially if you’re wearing a navy cardigan over it, but it’s possible the bride might have a problem with it. Picking a different dress is the probably the best thing to do.

It’s a really cute dress (and would look great with a navy cardigan IMO), but I probably wouldn’t wear it to a wedding either. It’s a littttle on the casual side, and it’s a little too white for me.

I wouldn’t wear it, and while I wouldn’t necessarily CARE if someone did to mine, I would secretly wonder WHY they did it anyway.

Too casual for a wedding.

I think it’s fine if you wear the navy cardigan with it.

I wouldn’t wear it, sorry.  And if a guest wore it to my wedding, I would wonder why they hated me.

I think it’s fine if the wedding isnt formal at all (ie: beach, barn, etc). Then again, I wasnt the type of bride who cared if a guest wore white or cream or whatever. Why dont you ask the bride? Many guests asked me about their outfits…

@jacklakin:  To me, it looks too short and too light-colored. How casual is the wedding? And how close are you to the bride – maybe you can ask her?
