    Thought i’d help ya out and post this for ya ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s beautiful. Have you tried it on? It’s so low in the back I’m wondering what under garments you could actually wear under it?

    Not too much white, too much back. Glad to hear you are considering a shawl ๐Ÿ™‚

    Pretty dress. I also love those shoes. I’m a sucker for a lace up shoe, even though I can barely walk in them if they have heels. Sigh.

    I voted yes, as long as the bride is wearing a traditional white gown. If she’s wearing something casual, maybe not. There are brides who have worn dresses like this.

    Elizabeth Graham :  if you have to ask….then you know the answer. Too much white. Seriously, pick ANY OTHET COLOR.

    I definitely wouldn’t wear that dress, as pretty as it is. Too much white for sure– sorry, Bee ๐Ÿ™

    As a bride I wouldn’t care at all, this is a gorgeous spring/summer dress!

    Its beautiful, and being from New Look im guessing youre in the UK. In the UK people dont care as much about the white rule as in the US so you will be fine (I’m born in the UK, lived in UK, Europe and the US). The US is alot stricter on etiquette on the whole and the UK is pretty relaxed so you will be fine. If it helps, I had a UK wedding and 3 people wore fully white dresses. It was not a problem at all, no one judged, I didnt care! So a floral dress is definitely fine.

    I don’t know why any bride would get annoyed with this dress. It’s not bridal at all. It looks like a summer dress.ย

    If you have to ask, no. Cute dress though. Floral wedding gowns are kinda “in” right now and I have seen brides wear dresses similar to this (with and with out flowers on it). Without knowing what the bride is wearing, I would error on the side of caution and pick something else. Google “short white wedding dress”, they almost all look similar to this one.

    Yeaaa the dress is beautiful but there are literally so many colors you can pick from that aren’t white. I just never understood this… There are also floral patterns that are much less bridal than this one if you insist on wearing white.

    Elizabeth Graham :  my rule of thumb is: If you have to wonder/ ask… then no it is not wedding guest appropriate.
