Honestly, I think it’s adorable, but it’s too white.

Are you close enough with the bride to ask her? Honestly, I think this would be perfect if you wanted to save it for one of your own bridal events. It would look amazingly cute for an outdoor bridal shower.

Personally, I wouldn’t mind at all.  However, I am sure there are some brides who would so it is probably better to be safe than sorry.

Are you close enough with the bride to ask her opinion?

I think it’s gorgeous and I say WEAR IT! 🙂

 How on earth could anyone consider that dress as a potential offense to the bride? It doesn’t resemble a wedding dress in any way!

@Adams_bee: Agreed! It’s cute, and it’s not “too white” at all. It has giant floral prints all over it, so I say it’s fine.

I think its adorable – and it’s floral.  If someone confuses you and the bride then they need glasses!

I think it’s so cute! And I also think the white rule is stupid. Nobody is going to confuse you with a bride. I say wear it!!

I also think the “white rule” is really dumb. (Until someone comes in wearing a floor-length, white ballgown…) Since I’ve been observing this rule, I feel like I’ve noticed at least one white dress on a guest at every wedding I’ve been to… Anyhow, if I were the bride, I certainly wouldnt care, but I agree, ask the bride.

Whether it’s too much white depends on how touchy the bride is.

BUT, that said – my worry is that it would be way too cold for an OR wedding this month!  Isn’t it usually in the 50s/60s and drizzly until July or so?

Um, I actually think that it’s just too revealing for a wedding In My Humble Opinion.

It’s ADORABLE! However, I think there is just a bit too much white in it and too low cut in the back. It’s beautiful for a date or summer party though. I would still purchase it just to have in my wardrobe!
