I just bought this dress and thought it’d be great to wear to a summer wedding. I thought it was perfectly fine because it’s a print but a friend of mine said she thought there was too much white in the print and that I shouldn’t wear it. I would love additional opinions! I have several weddings this summer so i’m curious if I could wear this to a more formal wedding as well.

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).

Thanks everyone! I’m so excited; I wasn’t even concerned about the dress having too much white until my friend said something about it. Also, I have a backup (more formal) cocktail dress for the formal weddings I was invited to so I’ll save this one for the one that wasn’t noted to be formal.

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.

ilovesophia: Thanks!!! I had no clue that was even a trend/thing that people do. Maybe I’ll save this for a different kind of event? I don’t personally know the bride well enough; it’s my boyfriend’s cousin’s wedding (BF’s cousin is the groom). I’ve never met the bride and I certainly don’t want to upset her on her big day.

Ladies same question… Is this too white?

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?
