I’m attending my boyfriend’s cousin’s wedding soon and am stumped as to what to wear. I have this floral print dress that I think may work, but could also be boarderline too white. Do you think this dress is patterned enough to work as a suitable guest outfit or is it cutting it too close?
Thanks in advance for all your help!! 🙂

I think since you have a pattern you will definetly be fine!

I think this dress is pretty! The print is large enough and bold enough that it wouldn’t be inappropriate.

I would add a colored sweater to your ensemble just to be safe…but that’s just me. the Bee has made me so self-conscious of this rule.

I think it’s absolutely fine to wear to a wedding! Really the pattern takes up most of the dress.

I think it’s fine, and I definitely wouldn’t care if someone wore it to my wedding. But I wouldn’t wear it. Do you know your boyfriend’s cousin at all? If you know her and know she’s not uptight about this sort of thing, then I’d wear it. But if you don’t know her, personally I just wouldn’t risk it. Not worth it.

It’s fine. No one is going to look at that dress and think “white dress”. It is a red or coral print dress.

It’s fine. The first thing I think of when I see it is “dress with giant red flowers”. If you’re still worried then have some brightly coloured accessories, like a red shrug or something.

It should be fine but to play it safe or not worry at all, you
could wear a cute little red cardigan and accessorize with

First I think that dress is totally within the bounds of decency for a wedding guest. But honestly, if this is the “meet the boyfriend’s family” wedding, I’d wear something else. Only because the fact that you asked means you’re at least slightly insecure about it and it’s hard to focus on making an awesome first impression when you’re worrying about your dress.
But if this dress makes you feel fantastic and there’s no lingering doubt in your head then wear the hell out of it, I think it’s really pretty. It gives me a “cool girl drinking a martini at an art exhibit” vibe.

In terms of its whiteness, I see no problems at all, like a pp said, you dont think ‘ white dress ‘, you think ‘dress with huge red flowers’ /
In terms of its casualness, fine , I think, if it is a fairly low key daytime affair . I would want soemething more dressy or formal for an evening reception for eg.
