I would say no.  Stay away from white.

Definately don’t wear it, not appropriate at all.  The other dresses posters linked to are very pretty, totally appropriate and the same price and style.  Go for those!  You can buy them online, even without trying them on since they’re the same style, they’ll likely fit you exactly the same.

I also second posters that are saying don’t bother the bride with this.  If someone contacted me right before my wedding to ask if they could wear a white dress I would feel increadibly awkward.  If I say it’s okay when it’s not I’ll resent her for it, if I say it’s NOT okay I’ll look like a diva.  As a bride, you can’t win in that situation. 

Be safe, wear a different dress.

No, I wouldn’t wear that to a wedding myself, but I wouldn’t have been upset if someone wore it to mine.

I definitely wouldn’t do and I would be upset. I just think white is just for the bride. Ask yourself how you would feel is someone wore white at your wedding.

I wouldn’t do it. If you’re in a photo with the bride, people’s eyes will be drawn to your dress and then the brides, depending on who’s standing where. My sister didn’t get any good photos of her departure because someone in a white pant suit stood right in front of the photographer.

I wouldn’t wear that….it is almost all white and maybe the bride won’t mind but you should be respectful incase she does. Not to mention you might get awkward looks if other people think it is inappropriate

Way too much white–don’t do it! I tried that dress on though, and it’s super-cute, so I don’t blame you for wanting to wear it…lol.  I love the teal version even more, though.

Please don’t wear white, ivory, off white, or cream to a wedding. Let the bride be the only one in white that day. I also feel you shouldn’t wear black to a wedding either. I think black should be reserved for funerals, so I never wear black to a wedding. Plus seeing guests weaing colors look so nice.

PS –The teal dress above looks lovely.

I wouldn’t wear this. 

I just went to a wedding in July where a woman wore a dress like this.  She stood out and not in a good way.  The Bride looked like the Bride but this woman stood out in pictures and in the room.  Someone actually asked why she wore it (which was rude too) and she said she thought she was honoring the Bride by wearing white.  It was weird.

I wouldn’t be worried if someone wore it to MY wedding, however I’m not sure I’d wear it to someone elses wedding.

I think it’s too white.  I know some people don’t care, but for me personally I would be annoyed.  Plus, if you’re questioning it now, you must feel it’s borderline and wouldn’t it make you feel uncomfortable all night?  I agree it is a cute dress though.
