    Are you kidding? Pick literally any other color. I’m sorry but these threads are getting ridiculous. Don’t wear white, that’s it! Does the dress have white/off white on it? Don’t wear it. Jeeze…

    Not even a little bit

    I am usually the loosest of the “what is acceptable” folks.  And if it were my wedding, I would not give a sh*t because what other people put on their body does not affect my quality of life one bit.  That dress, garbage bag, pj’s…whatever makes you happy and comfortable.

    But knowing there are some who are very tightly wound up about this sort of thing and there is a social convention about this, I will say no and think most will also say no.  If that floral pattern extended over the entire dress, I would maybe say it is ok because that would make it a floral patterned dress, even with a white background.  But this is a white dress with less than half of it containing a floral pattern and even most of the flowers are white.

    Yeah, I usually say yes to these posts- a dress doesn’t need to have absolutely no white to be acceptable.  However, this one definitely goes too far.  I would never consider this for a wedding.

    Looks like a pale lavender or grey skirt with white top. I see nothing wrong with this.  If in doubt swap out the top for a different color, darker purple or a shade of pink that compliments the flowers in the skirt.  I’m really surprised by the response to your question and poll results.  

    ETA: I think the response is skewed by how different monitors may show the color of the outfit you have posted.  For everyones reference the skirt IS grey, not white.  See the retailers description here: https://www.tedbaker.com/row/Womens/Outlet/Dresses/GILITH-Chelsea-Grey-pleated-midi-dress-Light-Grey/p/137647-LT-GREY

    Nope. Why is it so hard for people to just find a dress to wear that doesn’t have white on it? Seriously lol

    I’m the QUEEN of saying “It’s OK, WEAR IT”, and even I SAY that it’s off limits. Also, unless it’s a VERY informal outdoor garden wedding, it really doesn’t look dressy enough to be wedding wear.

    Very cute, but NO.

    Maybe it’s my tablet, but the skirt looks to be a pale lavender color. I see nothing wrong with it. Generally I find the whole don’t wear white scene to be ridiculous. It’s highly unlikely anyone will mistake a guest for the bride, no matter how white her outfit is.

    Even with the updated photo, I’m still in the “no no no no NO” category for this one.
