OK, so I’m on the hunt for the many dresses I will need this summer. I have four weddings to attend (not including my own) along with multiple showers and rehearsal dinners. I am trying to plan that I can re-wear my selections, so I need some opinions on if this is appropriate to wear to a someone else’s wedding or rehearsal dinner — most likely with a pink cardigan or something. I am terrified of being THAT girl who wears white to a wedding but I love this dress and want to put it to good use! The majority of the weddings are early evening, none super formal but definitely dressy. Please give me your thoughts!

if you wore it with a colored cardi it would be fine but without that some brides might think it’s too white. depends on the girl though.

If you came to my wedding in that with a pink cardi on, I wouldn’t be mad. The pink seems to be pretty dark/noticeable, so it’s not like a ‘I’m trying to wear white’ dress. I think you’d be fine, but it totally depends on the bride. My guess is with 4 weddings, you’ve got at least one laid back bride like me who wouldn’t mind at all 🙂
I would shy away from it for a rehearsal, though, just because the bride’s more likely to be in a more casual short white dress as well.

I would avoid it. Even if the bride is OK with you wearing it, there will definitely be at least a few guests wondering what you were thinking. I think that could work for rehearsal, there is no don’t wear white rule that night and this dress doesn’t scream white or bride.

With a pink cardi, some chunky pink or black costume jewellery and pink shoes I think you’d be absolutely fine.

I like it and I think it would be fine – especially with a colored cardi.
I saw a photo of DH’s sister at her friends wedding where she wore a long flowy cream dress that looked white in the photos – I said to him I would be so mad if she wore that to ours, but that is very different to a dress with patterns on it so you should be fine!

What a cute dress! I personally think it’s totally fine to wear. Do mind if I ask where you got it? I’m looking for a dress for my shower and I think that could work!

Thats definitely not a white dress. 🙂 I’d totally wear it.

I think people often get too stuck in the words “no white at a wedding” and don’t think about the spirit of the rule. The real rule is don’t wear anything bridal and don’t try to outshine the bride.
This dress while lovely will not outshine someone in a gown, and is not remotely bridal.

I wouldn’t care as a bride but I would also never wear it as a guest. It doesn’t scream evening to me, if anything I’d wear it to a shower.

I think it is totally fine!! That is such a cute dress. Where did you get it from?

I don’t think it would offend the bride, but it doesn’t really look “definitely dressy” to me. It looks a little more casual.

I think it’s great for a wedding! Adorable. Where did you get it?

I tend to stay away from any dress that is predominantly white. so in this case, no I would not wear that to a wedding, if you’re questioning it, others will be as well. Just my two cents!

I think it’d be adorable for a wedding with maybe a cardigan. It’s damn near impossible to find a spring/summer dress that doesn’t have white in it, so as a bride I wouldn’t care as long as you didn’t show up in a floor length white gown!
