Just the dress on it’s own besides being white isnt wedding appropriate, but white is a definite no…

No way. Wearing that dress to a wedding will come across as desperate and bitter. What about something in not white that’s not short with cutouts? Even a burlap sack, while certainly less attractive, would be more wedding-guest appropriate. You could pull off all sorts of things. Why wear this and risk the scorn of others?

Agree with PPs – neither the dress or colour are appropriate sorry

I think the dress is cute. I had a close friend wear a very fitted white long dress with a low back to my wedding. All I could think when I noticed it was “geez that’s cute, wish I had that dress to wear on my honeymoon lol”. To each his own. Her white dress didn’t effect my day negatively at all and she looked fabulous!

@lovelyleslie:  “many brides … seemed not to care.” Yeah, I wasn’t about to tell my grad school friend or my husband’s friend’s girlfriend off in front of everyone, but I was absolutely shocked at what they wore (White and off white).

You should not wear that dress for a few reasons. First, white competes with the bride. This is important especially in photos. Second, cutouts (or extended backless) is not appropriate to that extent. There are ways to do a low back well. As soon as the back starts extending to and past the sides, it’s an issue. The length is actually fine. It is a bit skintight in the ass region, which is probably why everyone is saying it’s short. 

It’s a fun dress for NYE, clubbing, your own bachelorette, etc, though I would remove the sleeves.

I have no problem with white at weddings as long as its not something bridal looks bridal like a lace dress or ball gown. No one will mistake you for the bride, I feel like its a very outdated rule.

@lovelyleslie:  I like the dress, but I still think that it’s faux pas to wear white!  Super cute though 🙂

@lovelyleslie:  wow that was really unnecessary. Your friend came looking for advice and received it. For the most part, it was respectful and honest advice. I’m very sorry if you do not agree with the advice given but that is no reason to get so defensive and honestly rude.

@lovelyleslie:  Well with all due respect a dress from Lightinthebox doesn’t even belong in the same sentence as Dolce and Gabbana.

You can wear the dress, but it will only be in bad taste. Not all attention is good attention and unless you wanna be ” THAT girl” then I would find something not white and more appropriate.
