I really don’t care about the “no white” rule, so I think it’s fine.  But it really comes down to your friend’s opinion.  If you think she’ll be put out by it, don’t do it.  If you’re not sure, just send her the link and ask.

I think it should be fine–not anywhere near looking like a wedding dress.

Um I think it depends on the wedding. I think it may have a bit too much white for me. But if the wedding is really laid back and the bride too I don’t think it is a big deal. But it is a cute dress.

I’m one of those you just don’t wear white to a wedding EVER no matter how laid back the wedding is. I think it’s the Bride’s special day and it’s just a respectful gesture to her to make sure she’s the only one to wear white. But if it’s your best friend why not just ask.

I think that it depends on your friend and the wedding. Imho it is a bit too much white for my personal preference but your friend may feel differently.

I wouldn’t care if you wore that dress it’s not bridal at all.

It would be fine for my wedding, but I would ask if you are worried. Just be sure to ask in a way in which it is totally fine for her to say it isn’t cool.

I’m of the opinion that you shouldn’t wear white to a wedding, being that I can’t see the picture b/c of the stupid firewall at work I’ll tell you what my mom has told me my entire life, if you have to ask you shouldn’t wear it…

I think it is TOTALLY okay.  Are you worried about it being too “white” or looking like a bride?  This dress is casually adorable and nice, and is in no way bridal.  I say GO FOR IT!

I think it’d be fine to wear to a wedding.  But I really don’t think it’s a cute dress at all.  That print is way too large!

Unless she’s wearing a casual dress, it’s fine.  And if the accessories are in color, so much the better.

In my opnion, the white doesn’t bother me.  I  think it’s pretty casual, so if its a formal affair then you shouldn’t wear it.
