Yes, my good friend wore a white dress with large pink flowers on it to my wedding and I didn’t even think twice about it.

what an adorable dress!  Can you tell us where it’s from?  I’d love to wear something similar for the rehearsal dinner.  ๐Ÿ™‚  And no, it absolutely should not offend a bride.

Very cute dress. Would love to know where it’s from.  And yes, it’s totally wedding appropriate.  It’s not at all bridal so it shouldn’t offend the bride.

Super cute! I think it would be okay. If you’re unsure, just add a pink or yellow cardigan to it. It’ll be a pretty addition, and tone down the white.

I went to a wedding where the colors were light pink and brown. An acquaintance of mine attended the wedding in a white strapless dress with pink embroidery, and she made her boyfriend wear a matching pink tie. Now that was a little much!

I think that colored accessories would make this dress totally fine to wear to any wedding AFTER Memorial Day but BEFORE Labor Day. ๐Ÿ™‚

I think there’s enough color in the dress to get away with it.  The only thing I might think about is being warm enough.  I’m not sure where you live, but this is a pretty summery looking dress.

Yes, it’s a lovely dress.  Obviously people aren’t going to confuse you with the bride, so In My Humble Opinion there shouldn’t be a problem.

def an ok pick…there is so much color in it I wouldn’t think it is close enough to being white/bridal.
