It’s definitely still a faux pas to wear white to a wedding, especially solid white with no colored print or pattern.

Do not wear white to a wedding if you’re not the bride or it’s not Kim Kardashian’s black and white wedding.

Hmm. it’s a beautiful dress, but I wouldn’t do it. I know it seems like an old-fashioned type of etiquette, but I wouldn’t want someone to wear white to my wedding. Would you?

I’m no fashion connouisseur, but that dress is great for a nightclub, not so much for a wedding.  I’d look for something else.

DO NOT WEAR WHITE!!!!!!!!! It is still wrong to wear white. If you really want to I would say to check witht the bride and go from there.

Cute dress!!  Do they have it in another color?  This way you can rock the style but not be in white.  🙂

It looks kind of like an ice skating outfit.  Not something for a wedding.

Personally, I couldn’t care less about what someone wears to my wedding, as long as they feel awesome in it. But if you do wear white, then try to stay out of photos with the bride – the eye is drawn to white in a photo, so she may not be too happy. Also, two people in white dresses standing next to each other could turn into an amorphous blob with two heads – which would be cool with me, not so much with someone else….
