I think it’s too white.  Brides will differ, of course, but I think it’s better to be safe than sorry?

I don’t find it too white, and it’s appropriate unless the bridesmaids are wearing that pattern?

I think it’s fine, but if you’re not sure I say just wear something else.

I’d be fine with a guest wearing it to my wedding, but I know some brides are a bit stickier on this issue. I’d go by what you think this bride in particular would think–is she pretty traditional or more errr tightly wound regarding the wedding?

I think it’s borderline.  Like deathbydesign: said though, if you don’t know either way, wear something else.  It’s better to be safe than sorry!

I don’t care too much about the patterned dresses but why oh why can’t people just not wear a dress with white in it at all? It’s not a huge deal, but it’s also pretty easy to just wear a dress with no white and err on the side of caution. I find that dress slightly offensive…too much white for me…

I think it’s fine, especially if you pair it with a (non-white) cardigan for the ceremony.

I think it’s fine. No one would look at that dress and think “white dress” They would think “black and white print”. We even say it that way, not “white and black print”.

I wouldn’t do white shoes though. Do a cute black kacket or cardi and black shoes, or do a hit of color in your jacket/cardi.

I think it’s fine. If your worried I would just pair it with dark shoes and jewelry to offset the white a bit.

I actually think it’s fine to wear to a wedding.  It’s not like it’s all white.  Just jazz it up with some bright shoes like red or go with black.
