I think that color is fine, but it looks like a tank top! Like, really really short. Maybe because it’s not on a person?

I think its pushing it, but only because blush is a really popular alternative to ivory right now.  If I were the bride and wearing blush, I might be upset by others wearing it. (Not that thats really reasonable because if I were really that concerned about being the only one in a certain color, I should have stuck with white.)

@asscherlover:  I think its kinda nuts to expect guests to follow wedding gown color trends and avoid all potential popular shades.

As long as its not a shade of white, go for it.

I would not wear it if the wedding colors are blush or pink. If not, go for it!

@Roe:  I didn’t say that I personally would expect it. I just meant that some brides might be upset. I have no idea whose wedding she is attending. Some brides don’t care if you wear white. Most do. As a guest, I would avoid pretty much all pastels just because I want to play it safe. I think the OP wanted to know if there was any chance the bride could be upset. I think her chances are slim, but the bride could be offended. Thats why I told her to avoid that color.

@asscherlover:  I getcha. I just think that unless the bride specifically told people not to wear pink because her gown is pink,  then she would be insane to be pissed that someone wore a not at all traditionally bridal color. We’re aware of the popularity of differnet gown colors, but most guests aren’t planning their wedding right now any would have no idea. If the bride would be upset about someone possibly matching her gown, its kinda her job to let people know that.

I think it’s cute, and don’t see it as bridal at all. πŸ™‚

I agree with asscherlover.  Most brides don’t wear blush, but I would avoid it on the chance that they might. I avoid all pastels.  My bigger concern is that it looks like a tanktop- short and very informal. I can only see it being appropriate for a spring or summer daytime wedding and only if you can make sure no bra straps are visible.

No way! It’s fine!  As long as it isn’t white, you’re good to go! πŸ™‚
