Jessiegaga :  I once wore a pastel mint dress to a wedding and in some of the night photos the flash completely washed the dress out making it appear white!!! Ughhh I still think about it to this day when shopping for wedding guest dresses. My vote is “no” to that dress. It’s very pretty though. Try and go with a dress with a lightly richer color. I cringe thinking about being in those photos in what appears to be a “white” dress.

Oh, for crying out loud — Now we can’t wear things that PHOTOGRAPH “white” because of the flash?! Dude, the dress is goddamn fine. It’s clearly not white (oh, the horror of a white dress!), and if some douchebag bride gets upset with you because the camera flash makes your dress APPEAR white, god help her because her life must be boring and shitty as all hell.

I think it’s fine. It’s not white, not even close to white.

What a pretty dress!  It’s wonderful, and I love that shade of pink.  It’s a perfect dress for a wedding guest.  Wear it and have a great time!

 I’m not a fan either way so I’m voting no

Cute dress.  I think pink is fine but I’m not very formal

obviousanonymous :  Ok now, no need for the snark. I’m just giving my opinion based on my experience. I don’t know how the bride feels about it, but at the time (I was 22), as the gf of the brother of the bride it was pretty embarrassing. It might be silly, but it is something to consider.

Looks too high school homecoming too me, I just don’t like the dress regardless of color. To me you could do better

She didn’t ask any of you to critique the style of the dress. She asked if it was a faux pas to wear light pink. Your personal tastes are irrelevant. Let’s not pick apart a dress that the OP specifically said she’s in love with, yeah? Kind of a shitty move, honestly. 

OP, the colour is fine! It’s a beautiful dress, and seems perfectly appropriate.

Jessiegaga :  I’m in love with that dress too! I think it would be fine for a wedding. If you worry, you could wear a black cardigan with it as well. Have fun at the wedding!

Okay, I am sure I will get chewed out for this, too, but looking at the photos without seeing the color listed, I would have assumed it was a white dress. Add to that the illusion top and the lacey overlay, and you’re getting into iffy territory. “Blush” is a very common color for bridal gowns, and while I will likely get all sorts of hate for this, blush, and champagne and ivory all count as off-limits colors to me. Looking back on my wedding, I don’t remember what ANYONE wore, nor do I think I would have even noticed if someone wore white. However, it isn’t necessarily the bride a person needs to be concerned about, but instead the older female relatives who will whisper and point fingers because they have little else to do. It is other guests who will talk, not the bride.

Nope, a bride doesn’t get to lay claim to all the colors, just white.  Even that is silly since it was only after Queen Victoria wore a white dress to her wedding tthat a white wedding dress became some kind of standard or “tradition.”
