I think it is a cute dress, appropriate, and it is apparent you are not trying to draw attention to yourself at the expense of the bride.
The last wedding I went to, no guests were really looking at anyone’s attire. The only dresses anyone cared to look at were the wedding party. No one was side-eyeing, talking behind hands or throwing shade at another guest. For all I noticed, there might have been a floral print with a white background. I am in NJ and people at a wedding are pretty wrapped up in themselves and their own families.

I think the dress is fine. The don’t wear white as a guest to a wedding rule was supposed to apply to an all white dress. Somewhat along the line that got misinterpreted to, don’t wear any amount of white ever. However, a quick Google search shows that a white base dress with a floral print is considered ok. You are just not supposed to wear any white dress that is considered bridal. That dress doesn’t look bridal to me.

Where do you live? For here, the bigger issue would be it’s too summery to wear in the winter. A pattern on white is not inappropriate. Nobody will mistake you for the bride.

OP, I think this dress is gorgeous and not too much white at all. Who’s to know the bride is in white and not champagne or eggshell or ivory? Go for it!

This is a very pretty dress I would wear it to a casual spring or summer wedding

If it’s a super casual wedding, I would say no.

IMO pregnant women get a pass on most every dress “rule” when it comes to weddings. Wear what feels comfortable. If anyone gives you side eye, they can go kick rocks.

Me personally, I wouldn’t wear it.
But I’m with llevinso :
7 Months Pregnant = automatic pass on anything without a veil.

I think it’s SO stupid that there are “forbidden” colors for weddings. Personally, I could care less what color my guests wear. Hell, my sister who is my Maid/Matron of Honor is wearing a bright red dress and it doesn’t bother me one bit (she asked beforehand and I told her to wear what dress/color she felt most beautiful in). The only way I’d be bothered is if someone else showed up in a wedding dress because that’s just weird. The dress is fine and pretty 🙂

When is the wedding? It looks like a really summery dress to me. If the wedding is during the winter, I wouldn’t wear it.

I wore a floral dress with a white background like that once to a wedding. My husband was concerned that it was too much white, so I was thrilled when the bride complimented me on the dress! She did obviously did not have a problem with it.

The wedding will be in late summer (I’m in Australia). Ok well maybe I’ll order it along with a few other options and try it on.
I know it seems easy like just order anything else. But on my large preggo body I’ve found it difficult. I ordered four others from asos and had to return them all as they were simultaneously to big and to small and looked strange.

Normally I woulsn’t wear anything with white on it to a wedding, but I actually think that dress is really gorgeous and think it’s fine for you to wear. I’m also pregnant at the moment and it’s not just my baby brain talking!! Lol

I think its fine. I certainly wouldnt have felt upset if a guest wore that at my wedding, especially if they were pregnant.
