Hey all! I’m wondering the following:
1) Is the fact that the flower pattern dress has some white on it a big no-no if I am a guest at a rehearsal dinner? The majority of the dress has a colorful pattern but there is some white on it.
2) Which dress is more flattering/which one would you suggest I wear? I’ve polled quite a few people and the vote is split 50/50 so I thought I might as well poll the Bee.

MissMarple: I definitely wouldn’t worry about the white in dress one. In fact, I prefer dress one on you! I think the shape is really flattering and you look gorgeous in it!

MissMarple: I really like the flower dress on you, very pretty! I don’t think it would be an issue because there’s lots of colour in it. If it were a straight white dress I would advise against because that would be tacky. But, since that’s not the case, wear the flowers!

I love dress 1 on you, and it’s totally appropeiaye for the rehearsal dinner. Floral with a white background is never a problem, especially not at the rehearsal.

crackktheskyy: winterwoodlandbride15: stillme: Thanks a bunch! I’ve noticed that the older ladies I’ve polled in person (mom, grandma, mom’s friends I saw at brunch, etc) all seem to go with #2 because they feel it’s more “proper” whereas #1 is more va va voom with the top half. 😉

I think dress 1 would be completely fine for the rehearsal but I prefer dress 2 on you as it’s more figure flattering on your body.

#1 is ok but #2 is more flattering on you because is more fitted. Go with #2.

MissMarple: This is the rehearsal dinner, not the wedding: where what you like. Both dresses are super cute. I only started hearing about white/no white at rehearsals on the Bee a couple weeks ago.

both dresses are completely fine and neither one is white. I’ve never heard of a dress being a problem if there’s a tiny bit of white in it when the main color/s are something else. I do think it’s not a good idea to wear an all white dress to bridal showers, on bachelorette parties, at rehearsal dinners, or at weddings (unless you’re the bride of course) – give the bride space to wear white if she wants to. Of course, you’re welcome to wear all white dresses at events that aren’t related to weddings though.

Both are great! I personally love blue (like, a lot) but flowers are nice too
