Hi everyone! Looking for some advice about attending a wedding as a guest…
I seem to have fallen in love with a dress at Anthropologie. The only thing is that I tend to not have a lot of places to wear a dress like this other than to weddings, and if I can’t wear it to a wedding it probably isn’t worth the money. So, to those of you who care about dress color, is this dress too “white” to wear to wedding as a guest?

I think if you add some colorful accessories, you’ll be fine. No one would mistake that for a wedding dress.

I might be hesitant to wear it to a wedding. I personally don’t have a problem with it, but I know there aer so many others who do.
It’s a super adorable dress, though!

I think its great and just fine.
Mind you I am not a very picky bride. My SIL threatened to show up to my wedding in an all white dress and I said sure. I mean its not like people are going to think its her wedding.
I think that dress is just fine, and yes to be safe you don’t step on any toes wear some colourful accessories and maybe a blue wrap?

I think it’s fine. The pop is really the blue. It’s not just plain white. I wouldn’t be offended.

I have the same thoughts as Amaryllis…

I think with some nice accessories and maybe a blue cardigan it would be fine. I’m pretty laid back, but I really don’t see too many people having a huge problem with that. Maybe shoot an e-mail to the bride and see what she thinks though?

My rule of thumb is, if it’s too white on the top, then it’s too white to wear to a wedding. I know it has designs and a colored bottom. But sitting down someone behind you can only see the white. That’s my “reasoning”. But I certainly wouldn’t be mad if any of my friends wore this to my wedding. I know I know, two different opinions… 🙂

That’s obviously not a wedding dress. Go for it.

Personally, I would not wear it to a wedding just because you never know how the bride will react.

Thanks for your replies everyone! Hm, I guess the consensus is that it might be ok, but some brides still might be upset. Something to consider. I do like the idea of wearing a blue sweater or wrap, though. Maybe I can come up with somewhere else to wear the dress so that I can still buy it 😉

I think its totally fine. It is not that white really – mostly light gray and it doesnt look anything like a wedding dress!

I definitely think it’s fine. If someone got mad over that I think it would be a little silly…it’s very obvious that it’s not a wedding dress, and has a grey pattern where the white is.
