    Show us a pic if you have.  Generally a pattern is ok with me.  Also, maybe show a pic to the bride and get her feedback.

    @Miss Lilac: Do you have a pic of it? I think it depends on how much white there is. From what you are saying and assuming that the print is big…I think it’s fine. What color heels are you thinking about?

    I think as long as it’s not solid white, mostly white or is a color that looks like white it’s fine.

    I dont think its abig deal but as a general rule I do not wear white to weddings, which for me means no white/ivory/cream at all.

    Honestly, if you have something else, I would wear that. Some brides are really offended by guests wearing any white, and other brides don’t care if you wear solid white. I do agree that a picture would be helpful, though.

    Yes, you certainly could wear a black and white print with that much black in it.

    @Miss Lilac: I think that it’s fine. You could even consider wearing a bolero or shrug the color of your shoes.

    I feel it would be absolutely fine to wear a black and white dress to a wedding. Your dress isn’t solid white and it isn’t “bridal” in appearance so I don’t think you have anything to worry about 🙂

    From the picture and how you describe your dress I think that’d be just fine 🙂
