I don’t know if I would be as worried about it being too white as I would be about it being too risque. Looks like a lot of cleavage and the bare back is a bit much.

maybebee:  for me it’s far too revealing, and also too casual. I don’t think the colour is a problem though.

maybebee:  I feel like a good rule of thumb for something like this is this: If you have to ask, just don’t do it. If you think there’s a chance it is “too white” or there will be any sort of hurt feelings, just find an alternative. 

Good luck!

It doesn’t seem like the right dress to wear to your brother’s wedding.

It’s pretty for a beach vacation, however too low cut for a wedding. Personally, I would not wear anything with white tones to a wedding where there is a possibility of upsetting the bride.

I don’t think it’s too white, but when in doubt, choose something else.

I wouldn’t wear it. I just try to avoid anything white at weddings unless I’m the bride haha. The white plus the back and cleavage may make it seem like you’re trying to upstage the bride, even if that’s not what you mean to do. But you could always as youf Future Sister-In-Law to see if she’s okay with it?

Too casual, shows too much, and whilst not too white I just think it is not really appropriate.

Her past has nothing to with whether or not this is an inappropriate dress, so I don’t know why it’s relevant here…

Too casual, too revealing, and yes, too much white.

Like someone said- if you have to ask, don’t do it! Plus, if you said the bride may not like it, then it may not be worth the risk. It’s a lovely dress, though!

Far too revealing and provocative for a wedding, and perhaps even too casual. Beach wedding does not mean you can dress so casual you look like you’re taking a trip to Wal-Mart. Yes, for me anything with white is unacceptable.

maybebee:  whoa! personally any dress with a neckline that goes down below the nether fold of the boob would not be a viable option for wedding wear. to me it looks more like a bikini cover up. beyond that, it is pretty ‘white.’

when its just as easy to NOT wear it…i’d say pick something else.

When in question, don’t wear it. In this particular case, the dress is entirely wrong and inappropriate for reasons that have nothing to do with colour.
