Hey all! Alright so I don’t post super often but I read a lot of posts, so I know how it usually goes with this — “if you have to ask, then it’s probably not OK”.
But the thing is, I’ve actually already worn this dress to a wedding…
It was two years ago and I really had no experience with weddings/etiquette. I didn’t even think about that the top could be too much white. Nobody said anything…but now I’m nervous. Weddingbee has opened my eyes to so much more, haha! (Or turned me into an overthinker!) And now, with wedding season quickly approaching, I’m trying to plan out my outfits for upcoming weddings and trying hard to not have to purchase new dresses, as we’re saving up for our own wedding in 2017 🙂
Is the white top inappropriate or OK? I fell in love with it when I first saw it, and it’s Anthropologie so it was pricey. 🙁 It’d be a bummer to not get to wear it again (I don’t really have too many fancy events I attend besides weddings, haha) but of course I don’t want to be inappropriate or rude!
Thanks for your feedback!
PS – these photos are not me
ETA: sorry, I meant “inappropriate” like as in too white/bridal at the top

Yes. It’s fine to wear… It isn’t sleazy.

Yes, this is fine. If anybody mistakes you for the bride, they are insane.

It’s fine. I don’t get people who think that wearing a dress containing the tiniest smidgeon of white as a wedding guest is OMGupstaging the bride. There aren’t many of them, but I’ve seen the stray comment in that vein on here. I think it makes people self-conscious over dresses that are absolutely acceptable, such as this one.

Yea, totally! Thnx for your reply. I’ve seen replies on these boards before that they wouldn’t wear something like this because in pictures from the waist up, it’s all white. So that’s what made me question it!

I think it is fine, really love it actually. As PP stated a nice colourful statement necklace would really make your outfit pop!

I wouldn’t mind if anyone turned up at my Wedding wearing it – in fact I’d probably try to buy one haha
