You’re going to get a lot of “if you have to ask, it’s a no,” but if someone wore that to my wedding I wouldn’t bat an eye. Are you close enough with the cousin to ask?

I think it’s lovely and would not mind if a guest wore it to my wedding, but I honestly think you should save it for something else. If you were close with the bride I would say to just ask her, but since you’ve never met her, I wouldn’t risk it (or risk other guests side eyeing you). For what it’s worth, as a guest I have noticed other guests wearing all white cocktail dresses and thought it was incredibly rude, and this dress I would probably notice because it’s so bright and pretty, but I would not bat an eye. However, you never know how other people’s guests will be.

I think there is enough bold colors in this dress to be alright. I am a strong believer in no WHITE dresses though and this is still a white dress. 

There are literally thousands of colors to choose from that are not white. Why is it so difficult for people to just choose literally any other color??

I know it seems trivial but I always avoid white for weddings completely, that said, I wouldn’t wear it.

I think its fine but agree with pps that it’s so easy to get a dress in literally any other color.. I never chance it, personally.

that said, a friend of mine ran her dress choice by me as it was floral with a white base and I felt it was totally fine..  so you could always ask the bride?

jb7979 :  I wouldn’t care if someone wore that to my wedding 🙂 The blues and oranges are drastic enough that it doesn’t “look like a white dress.” Some brides may be kind of picky about it though. Idk.
