tooclose:  I wouldn’t. That looks like a short bridal gown.

It is very pretty little dress ( so was the first but I agree with everybody else about too short) but unless it is much pinker than it looks on my monitor, it looks kind of like a cute casual wedding dress to me … so no.

tooclose:  I think the second dress is too white and as PPs mentioned, it looks a bit bridal. Even if the bride doesn’t notice or care, there will always be guests who look at you sideways if you wear something too white or bridal. That’s why it makes me uncomfortable to wear things like that to weddings. Proceed with caution.

I thought it looked a little bridal, too. 

Girl, go to Modcloth.com, there’s dozens of wedding-appropriate dresses there. I just ordered one for my sister’s wedding (I was maid of honor at her first wedding, this is her second marriage with a small wedding and just my niece as attendant). Side note, yes my sister is getting married in August and I’m getting married in April, lots of wedding in my family! 🙂

Mmmm, the second dress looks too bridal to me. I wouldn’t wear it.

First one too short, second one too bridal. I have a wedding coming up. This is what I’m wearing:

I always ask why do people gravitate towards light color lacy or whitish dresses for weddings ( as guests)? Just wondering. ..

I love the first one, not so much the second. It depends on the wedding. If you’re close enough then could you ask the bride?

One of my closest friends is getting married soon and I found a gorgeous dress. It breaks all the rules. It’s short, backless, the skirt is white, the top slghtly sheer. And the bride said she loves it. But she’s having an intimate wedding at a picturesque guest house/boutique hotel, I wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing a dress like that in a church. At the end of the day though, I’m not going to waste money on a dress I won’t wear again, so I won’t be shopping for anything too conservative.

There needs to be an auto post setting for these questions-

“If you have to ask, the answer is no!”

First too white, the second looks like your trying to upstage the bride, and it’s in the prom dress section, totally not the place to look.

tooclose:  I agree with the comments about the previous dresses, the first one is very cute but could be too short, second seemed to close to white and bride-ish, this last dress, in green is very cute and I think appropriate! I really like it.

Yes to the green! I knew Modcloth wouldn’t let you down. 🙂
