It’s definetly white but I wouldn’t be offended since it doesn’t resemble any type of wedding dress. If it was long I would probably care a lot more. But at the same time you might not want to wear something that would make you self conscious from wondering if others think it is okay.

Personally – I’d say don’t wear it.  For a casual wedding, that could totally be a wedding dress.

For those that want a picture instead of the link – here you go!

do you know what kind of wedding she’s having and what she’s wearing?  you could ask her if she is ok with it.

Eh, I think if you wore a colorful bolero you could get away with it.  But if you’re really wanting to wear it, why not e-mail the bride and ask?  Explain to her exactly what your OP said and see what she thinks.  If she says no, then return it.  If she’s very reassuring that it’s fine, then relax and glam it up with some color!

I had a guest wear a really simmilar dress to my wedding and I was annoyed because it pops in the photos. it’s not like she looks like a bride, but I feel like you only get one chance to be the only one in a color- I would look for something else. sorry. I am not saying my annoyance was justified, and I would never say anything to my friend. But my Bridesmaid or Best Man were in champagne and she is in a lot of photos with them and she stands out a lot.

No, I wouldn’t wear that to a wedding and yes, I’d be uspet if someone wore it to mine.

I personally wouldn’t be mad if someone wore it to my wedding, but I think a lot of women would.

A good rule of thumb is that if you have to ask yourself if it’s appropriate, it probably isn’t. Then again, you could ask the bride and see what she says.

I don’t see anything wrong with it.  However, my thought is that you must think it’s an iffy choice or you wouldn’t be asking for opinions.  My rule of thumb is if I feel I have to ask someone if it’s okay, then it probably isn’t.

I wouldn’t wear it.  We were at a wedding in April where a guest wore an ivory cocktail dress and I was surprised over the number of female guests commenting on it so EVERYONE noticed.  It was inappropriate…too close to a wedding dress.  Stay away from white or ivory as a guest.

There are SO many other colors out there, I would wear something else. I think ONLY the bride should get to wear white at her wedding (not that I would freak out if someone wore white to mine) but you should save that dress for another time.

I don’t see a problem with it.  BUt  if the technicality of it being white is going to set off alarms, I guess avoid it.  I can see how white could pop in pictures.  However, I think there are other colors that could stand out more.
