I have a wedding to go to this September and am having a hard time finding a dress. I rarely wear them because I hate my legs after having a baby. But at the same time its nice as a parent to be able to go out and dress nice so Im trying hard to find one to make me feel pretty. I finally found one I love and got it to later be like .. uh oh, what have I done? Yes, it is white.
When asking my fiance about what I should do, he asked me “Would you be offended if someone wore it to our wedding?” And the answer is no. However I may be a little more laid back than others. Here are my “Wearing White To A Wedding” rules.
1) It should not be 100% white
2) It should not even closely resemble a wedding dress.
My fiance LOVES the dress as do I. But if it is going to cause a stir I will just go with something else. Advice please?

Could I see a picture of the dress?

Can we see a picture before we make a judgement call?

Can you put up a pick of the dress?
Do you know the bride well and do you know if she will care?
Is the dress ALL white?
If you don’t know the bride well and the dress is all white I would get another dress to be on the safe side!

Yes, do you have a picture. If it is white I would say do not do it. Unless white is like an accent color in the dress.

People wore white to my wedding and I didn’t even notice until I saw pictures after the fact. So I didn’t care, but I feel like they were probably scrutinized by other wedding guests.
I think it would be more acceptable if the dress was white but had a lot of color detail like either a pattern or some kind of applique or something.

I added the link to the original post. The bride is my second cousin. No we are not really close.

Hmm, that could actually be a wedding dress for a casual setting. I personally wouldn’t do it.

mm, too much white, not enough of everything else. I would save this dress for a different occasion and pick a different dress for the wedding. Your cousin may not care, but I can almost guarantee that other guests will notice. Best to not be noticed in a negative way. It is a pretty dress though!

I think it’s too much white. I wouldn’t wear it. I think the only way you could get away with it, is if you wore a colorful bolero or sweater…..bright chunky necklace and bright shoes.
I would recommend looking for a different dress.

What about this dress instead? It’s cheaper, same general shape, and not white. Well, I can’t get the page to insert, but it’s called IZ Byer California Rhinestone Emma Dress and it’s on the Kohl’s website.
