My friend is getting married next weekend and I found this gorgeous one shoulder champagne colored dress with dark beading, I want to wear it to the wedding but I don’t want to upstage the bride at all. I know her dress is navy and yellow so I’m not worried about wearing the same color a her just wondering if any of you would and if you think it’s appropriate given the color of the brides dress?

@Stephaniemkenned: I don’t think it’s inapprpriate. You just can’t wear white.

What’s it look like? Do you have a photo? If it doesn’t seem bridal you can probably wear it.

I think you’re fine! My bridesmaid dresses are a champagne chiffon and look nothing like white (IMO). I think nude/beige are perfectly fine for a wedding. Plus you said there’s dark beading.

I wouldn’t do it, but it’s definitely not as bad as wearing white and I’m sure some brides wouldn’t mind.

I think it’s alright. You can’t rule out all light colors.

We had a guest at our wedding dressed in an ivory lace dress (my dress was lace and ivory!) and although my husband was furious about it, I didn’t even notice! I think it should be alright.

Cute dress. Very wedding appropriate. If you’re still not sure, try a black shawl/cardigan over it.

Honestly, two people wore white dresses to my wedding, and I didn’t notice until I saw the pics. But I would not have cared before the wedding either. I don’t understand that rule honestly, but I was that type of bride. Ask your friend, she can tell you the definitive answer. If nothing else, she will appreciate that you respected her enough to ask. Then your conscience can be clear!

I was doubtful before I saw the photo, but I think you’re fine. It’s sort of gold-taupe, not off-white, and it doesn’t look remotely bridal to me.

I wore that dress to a wedding – so I sure hope it isn’t inappropriate!
