Hello & Happy Friday!
Attending the wedding of my husband’s friends tomorrow – not a couple I know well at all. I picked this up from Anthro last week and was thinking of wearing it over a fitted black midi dress. Since this is not a crowd I’m familiar with, I want to err on the side of caution. Does this kimono have too much cream for me to wear as a guest? I know I’m overthinking but I don’t want to make a bad impression.

I don’t think so, especially with a black dress underneath.

I voted yup but meant no.
Is the outfit long and all white? Then don’t wear it.
Is it literally anything else except a long white dress? Then you’re fine.

It is fine, especially since you’re wearing it over a BLACK dress. Seriously, these questions are getting out of control on here.

I agree! Every day there is at least one of these questions. It’s not hard, if you think it might be too white don’t wear it 🤦🏼♀️

I’d say yes. I generally think people should stear clear of any even remotely white dress if they can. Of course not all brides are going to care, but there are sooo many colours and dresses out there it just seems silly to me to risk offending anyone or getting side eye for being disrespectful.
however – this isn’t a dress. It’s more in the category of sweater or shawl, and it’s not even fully white – it’s partially cream.

it’s fine with a black dress from a color perspective; but not a fan of it from a style/formality perspective. Seems too casual

I think it has too much cream and also looks a touch too casual 🙁

I agree with PPs who say this mentality is incorrect and getting totally out of control.
A solid white dress is traditionally off limits. Modern etiquette is even okay with that as long as it’s not remotely bridal looking.

I think it looks fine since you are wearing it with a black dress

It doesn’t look bridal to me at all. I think it would be totally fine with a black dress underneath.

Colour wise it’s fine , but it looks more like a dressing robe to me than a wedding guest outfit. , Though over a black dress I guess ……..

That’s fine over a black dress but it’s too casual for a wedding IMO

Not every wedding is super formal super ritzy. If it works with the formality (or lack thereof) of the wedding, then wear it. Some of the most fun weddings I’ve been to have been the non-formal ones.
