@EPatriciaWilliamsR: I suppose some would argue that since it’s a beach wedding, the bride may also wear a short white dress, so it could be competing. Maybe since it’s a beach wedding you should err on the side of caution. However… if this were any other wedding I would say go for it!
It doesn’t look like a wedding dress. It isn’t even totally white.
The idea behind guests not wearing white is for them to not show up the bride. I think very few white dresses do.

@Birdi: Really? I would think that asking you was a thoughtful gesture no?
A linen dress hardly looks like a wedding dress unless you’re having a super casual wedding…

@canarydiamond: Yes, it was nice she asked and I did tell her it was ok to wear. But I don’t know this girl shes a plus one. That is what bothered me the most.I found the whole going out of her way to ask me sort of rude. I would never consider asking a bride if I can wear white to her wedding, I would just choose another dress…is it gonna kill her to wear a non -white dress to my wedding?!

IMO, too much white. Just be safe and don’t wear any white, at all.

Eh, I wouldn’t care and I am pretty uptight and anal about anything related to my wedding, yet this wouldn’t bother me.

Especially if you don’t know the bride very well. Surely there is something else you can find that is NOT white. It’s not about being “mistaken for the bride”, I personally think it’s disrespectful. It’s also about tricking the eye in photos. If there is only one white dress in the picture, your eye automatically goes there. If there is more than one, the eye gets confused. Either way, I would never wear that to a wedding!!!

I love the dress! But i would ask the bride her thoughts.

I would say no. There are many other colours to choose from besides white you never know if the bride is a bridezilla or not and it might irritate her lol

There’s nothing wrong with it. If you wore that to a wedding, I don’t think I would mistakenly think you were the bride. I think it’s fine.

@EPatriciaWilliamsR: I think there’s enough print on it to distract from the white. All good!

If the bride is wearing white, then no, do not wear a white dress to the wedding. Be respectful that on this day she is the one that should stand out in white. Even with the print. It may not be intended as rude, but if you question it to the point of posting on here…then in your heart you know it is a good possibility that it’s not okay. Anything but white, unless the bride is wearing pink/blue/ etc.

I think it perfectly ok to wear. Its a printed dress…not a white dress.

Get this necklace: http://www.etsy.com/listing/109132921/was-2950-now-15-dollars-pink-j-crew
This is the look I’m thinking of
and maybe add a colored belt, depending on where the necklace hits you.
