Do you think this dress would be okay as a guest of a wedding? I have a little black shrug to wear over it during the ceremony (and I can keep it on during the reception if no one else is baring their shoulders).
One wedding is in June at a museum (pretty fancy, I think) and one wedding is an outdoor wedding in July (but also quite fancy).
Is it okay that it has some white? Is it okay that it’s strapless?
Thanks for your input!

I wouldnt mind if someone wore that to my wedding! I LOVE black & white dresses!
You could always check witht he bride or a BM to be on the safe side

i would say it is ok! very cute! good idea to keep your shoulders covered- just in case.

I don’t see a problem with it, especially since you’ll be wearing a shrug that you can keep on if no other guests are wearing strapless dresses.

Oh it’s absolutely fine. It’s adorable! The white is not the dominant color, so it’s okay. And great to be prepared with the shrug. 🙂

I agree it’s ok. I’ve worn something similar to a wedding before.

Absolutely! I think that is a cute dress! I don’t care if there is white in a dress at a wedding, as long as it isn’t a huge white ball gown or something that looks like it could be a bridal gown. Also, I really don’t think the style matters too much…as long as it is appropriate and covers where it should (no hoochie dresses! haha!). And with a little black shrug this dress will be adorable! Pair it with some dangling earrings or a long necklace and you are good to go!

TOTALLY fine.. and I was PICKY about people wearing too much white to my wedding so if I’m OK with it most people probably would be too : )

Wow, thanks so much for all your replies!
@trugem – I got the dress at White House Black Market a while back. I just noticed it’s for sale online for $60 if you’re interested! (But they’re almost out of sizes).
