Ah!  It’s SO darling, and if it were my wedding, I would love to see one of my friends wearing that cute of an outfit.  However, there are some crazy, crazy ladies out there.  Best advice?  Ask the bride.

It’s adorable, but every bride is different. If you think she might be miffed at the color, I would ask her first. Just to make sure.

What a cute dress — I actually don’t think it’s close enough to white to reasonably warrant ire from a bride. Have you seen it in person? Online, it looks like a pretty medium beige to me.

That said, some brides can get a little nutty, so asking couldn’t hurt I suppose.

As one of those nutty brides who doesn’t want certain people wearing white, I’ll offer my perspective.  I didn’t want my mom, Future Mother-In-Law, Future Sister-In-Law, or grandparents to wear white because they’ll be in loads of photos and I think it will look bad, also, let’s face it, everyone at the wedding will think "OMG why is she wearing white?!?!" and it will be really embarassing.

I don’t really care if any of my guests wear white or off white, as long as they don’t show up in a wedding dress!

If you wear it with dark shoes like on the model, I doubt anyone will even notice.  It really changes the look from the one on the mannequin.

Have you seen the dress in person?  It looks beige on the screen, but screen colors can be really off (for example, I loved ‘tiffany blue’ by Mori Lee for my BMs, it was the perfect shade of blue in person, but it looked green on my computer).  It says ivory in the description, so it might actually be a lot lighter.  And if the bride is wearing ivory, that could be an issue.  It’s really cute, but I’d avoid it for a wedding.

On the manequin it looked kind of light. But when I pulled up a picture of the model in it, it looks fine! It’s kind of a light brown. If it was a lighter beige, I’d say no. It’s super cute…I wouldn’t get it simply because it’s a little expensive for an everyday dress in my book. But that’s me, typical cheap-o. It’s absolutely adorable though. I wish they had this in stock last year! I needed champagne bridesmaid dresses and theses would have fit the bill!

I would ask the bride if that is too close for comfort.  If the bride is wearing more of an ivory or even darker shade away from white, that may be a conflict. 

If the bride is wearing white white white, then she may not care.

It’s sooo adorable! However, the lace might make it tooo ….. close to bridal to wear to a wedding. If that makes sense?

I think it is cute & I don’t think it looks anything like a wedding dress. I would say go for it, and I wouldn’t mind a bit if a guest showed up in that dress to my wedding.

BUT if you think the bride might have a problem with it– just check with her!

I think it’s darling and it’s very cute for a wedding. Is your friend weird about things like this? I wouldn’t have an issue and don’t know anybody who would, but some brides seem to have a "thing" with it. Just ask…if the BMs are wearing a similar color, I might skip it.

thats a very lovely dress. I see no issue with it at all.  AS long as you’re not wearing a long white dress you’re good to go!

It’s too cute! I don’t see why she would have a problem, unless she has beige in her wedding colors..
