I think it could go either way and you’d prolly be okay….but I’m suuuuuuper ‘conservative’ on this issue, so I’d only wear it with a cardigan like you said (personally). Are you close to the bride to ask her thoughts?

And if the blue is a bit darker in person…that helps!

It has a pattern on it so I don’t really see a problem.

I think it’s fine. No one is going to confuse you for the bride or think you’re trying to upstage her. It’s a floral print dress, not really a white dress.

Looks good to me! It’s mostly blue in my opinion for some reason lol

I think it’s fine… I have seen dresses with a lot more white at weddings.  That dress is far from being “too white”

In my opinion, it is totally fine. As others have written it is more a “floral print” than “white.”

Many, many summer dresses feature a print on white background. It’s perfectly fine to wear that dress to a wedding.
