<div id=”productLayer” onmouseout=”fnMouse_out(event)”>I’m attending a wedding this weekend, and have a white tube dress with pink and yellow flowers on it. I was just wondering if this dress is ok to wear? One of my friends said it might offend the bride…and another friend told me that since it’s not completely all white, it should be ok. (hope you guys can see the picture)

It’s very colorful so I think it’s ok. I generally avoid anything with a white base, though, JUST IN CASE. I don’t want to be self-conscious about what I wore all night, so I stick to colors.

I would say that dress is fine – It is definatly not a wedding dress!
It is really cute!

I think that’s fine. It’s very colorful and is obviously not anything even remotely like a bridal gown. I’d throw on some cute colored shoes and a bright purse and call it a day. Maybe you could also wear some sort of colored pashmina or cardigan.

I guess also it’s important to ask if this bride is the type who would be super bridezilla about it. It’s like CLEARLY not a wedding dress, nor is it a white dress, but some girls are super-sensitive. I mean, I’ll freak if anyone wears white, ivory, or champagne to my wedding, but patterned dresses are totally fine as long as it is a noticeable, colorful pattern. Like if the dress was all white with one flower on it – no – but that dress, at least for me, would be fine. If you are going to be self-conscious, though, then just wear something else.

I think it’s super cute! I’d totally wear it to a wedding. But like Kittyachi said I’d check in with the bride if she is the type to freak out about that kind of thing. Friends of mine that have gotten married have previously gotten really upset about things like that because if they’re wearing a cream dress and someone wears something with a white base it could make the bride’s dress look “dirty”.

To be honest, I think if the bride lets the dress someone else is wearing bother her on her wedding day…she has bigger issues to deal with. It’s super cute, wear it!!

Totally fine, etiquette-wise. And it is an adorable dress. But it might be a little out-of-season!

Yes, that’s fine. I am a big stickler about not wearing white at weddings, but this one isn’t a problem, I don’t think.

I second Kitty’s advice – colored shoes (and a great clutch/bag) would safely move this dress into the *Switzerland Neutral* category, even for a sensitive bride. 🙂

Thanks for your quick response ladies!!! …my friend just got me a little paranoid once she commented on it…so I just wanted to double check to see that I wasn’t the crazy one! (…so now I know what not to wear to her wedding!) The wedding’s going to be outdoor in the Sacramento heat…so I wasn’t trying to burn up in my back-up dress!

You’ll be fine. I wouldnt wear an ll white floor length gown to a wedding – but yours is a fun flirty sunday dress, not a wedding dress.

Very cute and totally wedding appropriate.
THe last wedding I went to, there was a woman wearing a totally white, low-cut, Marilyn Monroe type dress! Eek! That’s the kind that is not appropriate!
