So I just bought this dress for an upcoming wedding I’ll be attending. I started to worry though, is the shade of blush too light to wear? Here’s the link for anyone who’s curious. I suppose if all else fails, I could try to dye it a slightly darker shade of pink.

I wouldn’t be offended if you wore that to my wedding. But then, stuff like that doesn’t bother me, and my own dress is neither white nor traditional, so I guess it depends on the bride and the type of wedding it is.

You can make it less bridelike by adding colorful accessories- maybe cardigan, belt, purse, shoes, jewelry, whatever. Personally I think it is fine, but adding some more vibrant color would make it a sure thing. (Maybe if I knew the bride was wearing blush, I would avoid it, but it really even then I doubt it would be a problem.)

I’d try to dye it if you want. I’ve learned this is more of a regional thing, but where I’m from you’d get some *serious* side-eye if you wore it like it is, especially from the older crowd. I mean yeah it’s blush and not technically white, but it’s super light, and blush is a common wedding dress color now

I don’t think it’s too light. You can always do what someone else said, which is wear colorful accessories.

It isn’t white. You can wear it.

This is a very traditional, proper and appropriate color for a guest to wear. I can’t believe anyone would say otherwise. A bride who chooses an non-traditional color is taking her “chances” that someone else will be wearing it.

If you have to ask, I generally think it means that it’s not meant to be.
The picture looks very pale, IMO. And that’s the way it will look in wedding photos so I personally wouldn’t wear it.
I also think it looks like a lot of BHLDN and otherbridesmaids dresses that are out there right now.

Doodle14: I don’t see any issues with the dress.

Doodle14: I don’t think it would be bad to wear this to a wedding. I’m wearing a traditional white dress and I wouldn’t be mad if someone came dressed like this…although I don’t think I’d be mad about anyone’s attire. If you’re worried about it you can dye it like you mentioned, or just wear brightly colored accessories to get away from the white/beige color.

Peanut-Sue: Thanks! If nothing else, I’ll wear it to another party. It’s crazy comfortable material and the price was too good to pass up.

Doodle14: wear it to the wedding too! Im surprised at your poll results actually. There’s only 1 golden rule about weddings & that is to not wear all white/ivory/ecru!!! That’s it! Your dress is a perfect guest dress.
