We are leaving for a beach destination wedding tomorrow and it just dawned on me that this dress I purchased to wear for the wedding may not be an appropriate color. It looks really cute on, but now I’m second guessing! What do you think?

Sure, it has plenty of color and the bride would probably have to be pretty opinionated about wearing white to offend her but really? Can people really not find any dresses that ARENT white? For one day? I would just find something in literally any other color and call it a day.

smalltownbigworld : I know right? I didn’t care that much but I was actually surprised by the number of people who straight up wore white to my wedding– a plain white dress.
But to the OP, I don’t think I would even consider that a white dress, it’s like a floral dress… I think it should be fine.

It’s fine. It’s not a white dress.
bright colored tropical floral

I wouldn’t mind if someone wore that dress to my wedding. I would mind if someone wore a white dress.

If you have to ask, if it’s “white with…”, or “not really white… more like a really pale x” or it’s “actually silver, blush, cream, etc”, it’s not appropriate for a wedding. Of course there are some brides who wouldn’t mind, but unless you know for super sure that THE bride wouldn’t mind, it’s best to play it safe and just find something else.

Honestly, if I were having a beach low-key wedding, that’d be the type of dress I’d wear as a bride, ha. It’s lovely.

smalltownbigworld : I agree with this. Why can’t people just pick any other color????

If you know the bride is wearing a plain white dress,it’s fine. If she might be wearing a flora, I wouldn’t wear it.

It’s fine. 2 of my best friends wore white dresses with floral patterns on them to my wedding and *gasp* no one mistook them for the bride.

For the umpteenth time. It is not about being ‘mistaken’ for the bride. Nobody (unless wearing a strapless lace ivory mermaid with a veil ) is going to be mistaken for the damn bride . It is about respectfully allowing the bride to be the only one that day wearing the traditonal bridal colour.

elderbee : so you’re saying that no one can wear even a hint or speck of white to a wedding because it’s the ‘traditional’ bridal colour….yet a lot brides don’t even wear white themselves so it’s really not that traditional anymore is it!?
Look at what Pipppa Middleton wore to a wedding in Stockholm recently – a long white and black dress. Very beautiful and very guest appropriate.
Get with the times.

DrCrazyCat : I think Elderbee woke up on the wrong side of the bed lol…
Whilst I agree with what Elderbee said the tone would of been more appropriate for your username ‘catty’ spings to mind 🙂
