It reminds me of the early 90s, so I wouldn’t wear it. But I realize you don’t want to hear that. If the bride is boho, why don’t you wear a pretty maxi dress?

No, sorry!! I do not feel this is appropriate to wear to a wedding.  I know personally I avoid any dress that could be in question…if you have to ask yourself “Is this okay” then its not!  It is a lovely dress though and would be great for a variety of other events!!

Ask your friend. If she’s fine with it, cool, if she goes “welllllll…” then find something else to wear.

These types of threads never end well. The OP would ask(usually with mind made up to wear it) and get offended/upset/angry when people advise not to. Posters ask why the hell OP made the post and it just goes on and on.

I don’t think it’s that horrible if you do, but I’d see if you have another dress to wear or borrow one from a friend?

My first thought was that it was a little too casual, but after you posted that it’s a casual rustic style wedding, I think it’s fine.  I wouldn’t necessarily call those flowers “brown,” I think they’re more of a tan.  But the dress as a whole is clearly not WHITE or even ivory.  It’s at least a deep beige or tan.  

I think it’s fine, and I also think it’s ridiculous how many clothing restrictions wedding guests have to deal with!  No white, no ivory, no anything that looks like white or ivory, no red, no black, no flashy, no skin.  Goodness, it’s more restrictive than what you can wear to church!  If your friend is laid back I highly doubt she’s going to care that your dress is a light-medium shade of neutral.

I don’t think you should wear it.

I say if you have to ask than it prob isnt a good idea. I wouldn’t wear it to a wedding. At my fsil wedding her mom aka bride mom wore beige color similar to this one. If you are unsure of what to wear ask the bride what she thinks.

I personally wouldn’t either. My dress happens to be ivory over cafe. So while I might not care, I am sure that guests would be whispering about it.

I sawy Wear it, its very pretty!! By the sounds of things the bride won’t care what colour it is. Honestly it shouldn’t matter, it should matter about surrounding yourself with the people you love and care about, not about what people wore, and if people want to complain about the colour of someone elses outfit, they really need to get their priorities checked…

I wouldnt… the majority of the dress falls into the baige,white category… are you close friends with the bride? why dont you show her the dress and ask for her input! some people on here wouldnt care if you came in a white dress while others would be pissed! best thing to do is ask the bride.

I would advise against it also, but not because of the color.  Moreso because of the style.  It could be mistaken for a wedding dress imo
