There is no possible way someone could consider that to be a white dress.

I wouldn’t worry about the color of the dress, it is nice.  My only concern is if a jersy maxi dress is formal enough?  I don’t know, I always thought of them as rather casual.  However, if its going to be a more casual wedding, that dress would be pretty.  🙂

The fabric is too casual.

Cute but looks like a summer casual dress, not a dress for a wedding. Sorry at first glance it looked like my grandmother’s quilt.  The accessories are dressier but don’t go with the dress as the dress is too casual. If it were a rustic wedding in a barn then yes, I would say might be ok to wear without the accessories. All that just doesn’t go together.

Great dress. Agreed with PPs though-No concern about the color, but I think the material is too casual for the formal wedding you’re describing. Backyard or casual wedding? Perfect. But even if the people are normally casual, their wedding might be fancier than you’re thinking. I’d check out the formality of the event to be sure, especially if you’re in family photos.

Love the dress, totally inappropriate for a formal church wedding and hotel reception. (Because it’s casual jersey, not because there’s white in it.)

Sounds like you like the dress and plan on wearing it no matter what anyone on here says…So put it on and rock it 🙂

ETA: I personally like it and think it is fine. The bride won’t notice and neither will the other guests

Not appropriate for the reasons the prior posters stated.

What worries me the most is the pattern, I feel it would be distracting in photos since it’s so bold. The dress itself is super cute though, albeit somewhat inappropriate. Right now donna morgan has tons of dresses on sale, albeit bridesmaid dresses they aren’t your usual BM style and 100% silk for $60
