Is this dress too white/too wedding dress-y to wear as a guest to a friend’s wedding (my FI’s cousin to be exact)? I absolutely love it, and in truth it does remind me of the neckline I envisioned for my own gown– but didn’t end up getting. If it is inappropriate (due to color?), would it work to wear this to my own rehearsal dinner or brunch?
Thanks! Oh, and if you know of any dresses like this that aren’t white/ivory, I’d love to see them! I’m obsessed with the lace and the cut.

Id say its inappropriate to wear to someones elses wedding. Its beautiful though and would be perfect for your rehearsal or and other of your wedding events.

Sorry- I say go ahead and wear it to your own wedding events, but not to your friend’s wedding. Honestly with so many people choosing to wear short dresses nowadays this almost looks like a wedding dress to me. I saw nordstrom’s has a version in black and tan that would be ok to wear to someone else’s wedding- if you don’t mind having two of the same dress…

Sorry but I think it’s going to cause a few raised eyebrows at your friend’s wedding! I would totally save this beauty for your own events, maybe rehearsal dinner?

Oh, that’s awesome. Thanks! I didn’t realize that they had it in other colors. Not sure if I like it AS much in black, but it’s still lovely. I know, it really does look like a dress for a casual wedding. I think I might think twice if someone wore it to mine. Too bad…

That’s a really pretty dress! I would definitely wear it to my own wedding events but not someone else’s.

Thanks everyone! I agree. I think I just wanted to find an event to wear it to, and I wasn’t sure I was so keen on wearing white the night before/day after my wedding. But, maybe I love the idea!

Beautiful dress. But yeah, I wouldn’t wear it to a wedding. Could you imagine if her dress was similar? Yikes!

it is definitely inappropriate to wear a white dress
can you get it in another colour?
otherwise, if you love it and want to get it you can save it for another dressy occasion

Definitely inappropriate to wear to a wedding.
It’ll work for any of your own events, but definitely not a guest’s dress.

Oh, I wouldn’t worry about wearing white to your own wedding events! I think it would be great as a going-away dress too.

I agree with greenleafmountain. It would be really cute as a going away dress!

I agree w/ the other bees—-you don’t wanna be THAT girl. You know, the one who wears white and then all the guests are whispering under their breaths about? haha But it is really beautiful!

No, I definitely don’t want to be “that” girl! I probably wouldn’t have had the courage to wear it anyway, or the audacity, but I just came across it and wanted to employ it in my wardrobe somehow. What’s a “going-away” dress? Is that what you wear at the end of the night? I hadn’t thought of that…

I agree with everyone else, I would probably not be thrilled if you showed up at my wedding wearing that. You could wear the dress at the end of the night or any other wedding related activity you might be having. I’ve seen that dress before as well and do like it.
