    I am usually not sensative to this white dress rule at all, but for some reason, the all over whiteness, and the sheen to it make it seem, not inappropriate, but definitely an awkward choice for someone else’s wedding.  So sorry, I hate finding a new outfit!

    In the picture here it does look a little too white.  Are you close with the bride?  If so, shoot her an email and ask.  If not, I would go with a different dress.  It may look different in person, but if you show up in any of their pictures later on, it may look like it does here.

    Hmm, I have to say, if someone brought up in a nice way, it really means that as soon as they saw it they probably thought OMG YOU SHOULDNT WEAR THAT TO A WEDDING, you know? It’s a cute dress for sure but I don’t think I’d have the gall to wear that to a wedding!

    Also I never liked those “what about asking the bride?” things… I just feel like I’d have to be too nice to someone if they asked me that kind of question, when really I’d feel like saying no. Gosh I know I sould so harsh! I’m soooo not trying to be… I just feel passionately about white at a wedding. lol.

    As a rule of thumb, I try to stear clear of too much white to anyone’s wedding. The most white I have worn was an off white halter top. With that being said, I don’t think you could get away with it. Since there is the possbility of doubt…you’d be safer not to do it. Do you have an up close picture, to be sure?

    Oh, I want to add that I totally agree with Laboroflove, I would HATE if someone emailed me with a pic of their dress and asked me if I would be okay to wear to my wedding.  Unless it was a wedding gown, I would absolutely lie and say “of course!” just to be nice.  I would wonder why they would wear something that they felt warrented an email to me in the first place!

    Yeash, so I still say cute dress, but find something else. The Bride might not notice, but it’s more of a  respect thing for me.

    Hmm.

    I still say no based on the fact that it’s more than 50% white, and the fact that in pics, it could look as white as it did above. Sorry! I know it sucks trying to find the perfect thing to wear.

    I guess If you have to ask you probably shouldn’t…… just incase since we don’t know the bride.

    Gosh you’re so gorgeous! And I do love the dress, I love gold anything.  Also, have relatives in Humarock–GREAT PLACE.  It does help with the closer pic, there’s def more gold than I originally saw…

    The first pic, I was thinking no, the second, I’d say yes. It’s not an obvious no (especially because it’s short), but I’d probably lean towards erring on the side of caution and skipping it, especially since someone else questioned it.

    Really? I was thinking that this wouldn’t have been a big deal. But I guess to be safe maybe a different dress would be a good idea, since everyone else seems to think so. 🙂

    Also, I wouldn’t care if you wore that to my wedding, but what is this bride like? Some really care, others, not so much….
