That’s fine. No one will mistake you for the bride unleas she is wearing a cocktail dress too. NY&Co is not a luxurious brand, so I doubt the actual fabric from a far will even look remotely bridal. Ivd wear black shoes and accessories.

Personally, I wouldn’t. That is quite a lot of white. But I do tend to err on the side of caution with wedding wear. I’m sure most brides would think it was OK.

Cute dress, but I think it’s a bit too white for a wedding.

I think its a lot of white.  I don’t think anyone will think you are the bride but I just feel like it’s too much white for me to be comfortable with.

I don’t think anyone will confuse you for the bride, but I wouldn’t wear it. If you have no other dress, I would add  a black sweater or jacket.

Me personally I wouldn’t care as the bride… it’s more the fact that you will get looks and comments from other guests of “doesn’t she know better?” since it is stark white.

I wouldn’t care as the bride, someone wore something similar at my wedding. But as a guest, I like to stay on the safe side so I probably wouldn’t wear it since it does have quite a bit of white.

I think you might get a few sideways glances with that much white…

No one will mistake you for the bride, but I wouldn’t wear it. I think it would be safer if you wore a different dress.

nutmeg5512:  I’d say too much white.  There are plenty of alternatives.
