Look, I wouldn’t be mad if you wore it to MY wedding, but why choose something with a white background when there are countless other color options available?

It’s one day. You can literally choose any other color besides white and ivory, it’s not difficult.

I don’t know that I would think twice about it, because I notice the floral print more than the white background. But if you’re questioning it, perhaps find another dress?

I think it’s a lovely dress. Wouldnt worry me, id be fine with a guest wearing this.

I think it’s totally fine, white is just an accent color on it.

I think it is perfectly fine, but since you are unsure it probably means you know the couple so maybe it’s too white?

Personally, I wouldn’t. Yellow is already a bold choice so the entire dress screams “LOOK AT ME!!!”.

I had a guest wear something similar, except hers was pink instead of yellow and the floral print was smaller, so more white. My cousin’s girlfriend actually wore a short white dress! All white lol.

I wouldn’t care if you wore this to my wedding. But honestly. unless it’s floorlength and pure white, I would not notice or care if a guest wore white.

It’s fine, it’s a floral dress not a white dress. And I’m someone who side-eyes some of the “should I wear it?” dresses posted here!

I think it’s totally fine! The yellow stands out so much that the white background is no longer the focus. I don’t see any problem with this dress!
