I think khaki is fine.  Ivory or cream–it’s a case-by-case basis.  But khaki is totally fine, especially with a colorful sash like this dress has.

Yup — not even close to white.  Don’t worry! ๐Ÿ™‚  I’d say anything that could remotely remotely pass for a bridal type dress, even a short casual destination wedding dress, is out.  This one’s perfectly ok!

Such a cute dress!  Don’t even worry about the white rule, this is not even close!

I think you’re safe! I keep only finding champagne MOB dresses which is awkward b/c my dress is champagne…le sigh.  I think if it isn’t plain ivory or cream, or is the dress is a white base with a fair amount of print on it you’re usually good ๐Ÿ™‚

I think it looks great!! Plus, I don’t really remember what anyone was wearing at the wedding- so they could have been wearing the same dress and I doubt I would have noticed or cared- I was on such my own high!

Wait just a minute now, is that the actual dress in the actual color? That looks gray to me. If that’s the actual color, i say you are okay, but I would not want someone to wear a light khaki dress to my wedding. Fortunately thats not light khaki, it’s quite dark.

P.S. Rose, that’s very considerate of you to even ask for your cousin ๐Ÿ™‚ My mom is actually wearing a dress with a white top and black bottom … I’m not letting it bother me I guess (It’s not toooo much white).
