I think it’s too white IMO but whatever floats your boat.

buzztastic13:  I don’t think it is the best choice for a wedding guest. Sorry.  A long,  lacey, neutral dress is beautiful,  but I wouldn’t wear it to a wedding.

justwondering2015:  Really? You asked:

How do you know the bride isn’t wearing beige or ivory?

She answered:

Umm because she is my friend and I’ve seen her dress? Its much lighter than this dress.

There was nothing rude about her response.

Is it possible to show it to the bride? Otherwise I might err on the side of caution and not wear that. Even if the bride is okay with it, others could take offense. At my cousins wedding the brides best friend and mother were SUPER upset by what brother’s girlfriend wore and essentially froze her out for the remainder of their relationship. Weddings can make people CRAZY…lol

julies1949:  *shrug* Usually when people add “umm” on the internet, it carries a tone of hostility. At least that’s how I read it.

ETA: And she also phrased it as a question, which to me comes across like I should have already known this information. If it were phrased as a statement without the “umm” I think I would have read it more as a statement of fact.

Beautiful dress!!! but instead of asking us if it’s ok to wear the dress you should be asking your friend… afterall, it is her wedding and her opinion matters most 🙂

buzztastic13:  Yeah, that would be bad. Don’t do it. There you go.  Show it to the bride if you’re that worried. Or go buy a cheapo sundress somewhere else. They’re not that expensive at places like Target and Old Navy.

buzztastic13:  I tottally understand, can you show it to her mom or MOH? Otherwise, it’s a lovely dress BEE but I wouldn’t risk it.

buzztastic13:  I wouldn’t wear it. I’m of the camp, if you have to ask – it’s probably a no. Is the bride going to care or notice? Probably not, she’ll be too busy. But other guests will and I personally would be too uncomfortable to be in a white dress at someone else’s wedding.

Is your friend pretty easy going?  If she’s anything like me, I didn’t give a rats ass who wore what to my wedding.  It doesn’t look like a (her) wedding dress, so what’s the big deal.  Go ahead and wear it!
