    I think it’s fine as far as the colour/pattern goes. I don’t know if it’s formal enough for an actual black tie wedding though. However, most people who list black tie now a days aren’t actually throwing a black tie wedding, so I take it with a grain of salt.

    I think it’s totally appropriate for a summer wedding…  Black tie or formal though, no way.  This screams fun, daytime event to me.  I’d go more cocktail for an evening wedding.

    It’s fine as far as your concern about the white is concerned. I don’t think it will work for a formal wedding though.

    Agreed with PP, not formal enough for some evening weddings!

    It’s very nice for a casual summer wedding; it’s so colorful that the white in it is practically an afterthought. For a formal wedding? No.

    I voted yes without fully reading your post.  I think the dress is fine for a casual summer wedding, not a formal one.

    paradisedaze:  I think it’s super cute for a daytime wedding, but not quite enough for an evening wedding (and definitely not black tie).

    I have the same issue…I’m going to a backyard wedding but the dress I’m wearing is white lace with flowers on it( I’m attending my son and nephews high school graduation then going straight to the wedding after) and now I don’t know if I should change first…

    paradisedaze:  Noramally, I’d say it’s fine. HOWEVER, floral prints are super trendy right now for wedding gowns – so I think even such a colorful dress might run the risk of toe-stepping, unless you know for sure that the bride is going classic white/ivory and not an on-trend print.

    MrsBobcat:  uhm, I think a lot of people already told you not to wear this on the separate thread you created? Because the bride is wearing a short dress? Are you looking for actual opinions, or just permission?
