    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.

    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.
