I think it depends on the bride. Some brides might not like the idea, and others would be fine with it since there are other colors/pattern on it. If it were me, I wouldn’t wear it because it’s long and the majority of the dress is white (just my opinion!). I think you are doing the right thing by asking the bride, because she might be cool with it, and it’s def very thoughtful of you to get the ok from her first.

I personally wouldnt wear it to a wedding. I love the dress though. I have so many problems with the etiquette on what to wear and what not to wear to a wedding. I think in cases like this you should just steer clear of white completely. I am having a hard time finding something to wear to a black tie summer wedding I am going to, so let me know what you decide on!! good luck

I love the dress, where did u find it, would love to wear it to my rehearsal dinner. As for wearing it to a wedding I think it would be fine, checking with the bride is the right thing

I probably wouldn’t wear it just because it’s mostly white but like others said – it depends on the bride. I think if you did wear it you could tone-down the white by wearing a yellow or red short sleeved cartigan over it – since the top is the part that has the most white.

There is a lot of white.  I think it’s best to stick to the rule of if you have to question it…it’s best to wear it somewhere else.  I also don’t know that I would ask her, unless the two of you are really close.  If she says yes that she has a problem, then she probably comes off a little controlling.  Or she may say no just to avoid an awkward situation.

So personally, I would keep looking.  There are lots of cute dresses out there without white as a primary color!

I think it depends on the attitude of the bride.  I wouldn’t mind it, but I know a lot of girls would.  My basic rule on this is if you have to ask, don’t do it!

I don’t think it’s too white at all!  It’s not like it looks at all like a wedding gown.  It’s very pretty.

I think anytime you have to ask whether or not something is acceptable to wear then its probably not. I would err on the side of caution and save the dress for a different occasions. While it is a gorgeous dress you just dont know how the bride will react.

If you put a little red or other bright shrug or cardigan over it I think it’d be fine!

I wouldn’t do it! Is too risky… what if the bride thinks is too white? DRAMA*
