(Closed) Can I get away with this?

  • poll: Can I wear this dress to a wedding, with black tights and blazer, since there is no bride?

    Yeah, that should be totally fine!

    It might be inappropriate - I'm unsure or undecided.

    No way. That's still totally wrong.

    I voted no, simply because what if the grooms wear white? (sex in the city2, right?)

    Or you could ask them to make sure it would be ok.

    I’m pretty sure that a couple of two men would be open-minded enough to not mind a white dress on you.  They are unconventional and I am sure they probably won’t mind in the least.  Just my opinion of course…

    I always go by this rule: If I am not sure, then I don’t do it. I wouldn’t want to conclude that it’s ok and then be talked about forever by all the over judgemental people who are also in attendance.

    The dress is very cute though, and I wouldn’t have minded if someone wore something similar to my wedding. 🙂

    I’m almost more concerned about the black and white combo (a little tux like) than just the white part.  I’d probably wear something else, but if you have your heart set on this outfit I don’t think it’d be really obviously wrong.

    I would wear something else. even though its two men, one of them probably identifies as the “bride” there are so many other colors out there why not just wear a different dress to be on the safe side

    Is it cotton? It looks like a summer dress to me, so that would be the reason I wouldn’t wear it in the dead of winter more than the color.

    I saw this dress  yesterday and LOVED it! I think it is perfect. Particularly because it is not a traditional wedding.

    I simply still dont understand why people wait for a wedding to fall in love with and insist on wearing a WHITE DRESS.  Wear it any of the other 364 days in the year.

    Besides if you take a picture with them the photo is gonna look weird….like you are the bride or something and Its gonna look awkward.

    I agree that wearing it with a black cardigan and black tights, with the black belt at the center, will make it look rather tux with cummerbund-ish.  If your guy friends are the type to wear traditional black tuxes to their wedding, I’d definitely skip it.  If one or both plan to wear white tuxes, white dresses, or some other majorly white outfit, then I’d skip it too.  Basically, I think you are safest in skipping this dress for the wedding altogether.  That said, it’s super cute and I would not think poorly of you if you wore it all of the other 364 days in the next year. 😛
