@piano_woman:

First question: I wouldn’t wear it. It sounds like you’re really worried about it, so you’re going to end up feeling self-conscious and uncomfortable about it all night. Wear it to one of the other weddings you’ll be attending.

Second question: Can we see a pic of it? I think it’s okay to wear a dress with some ivory on it if it’s not particularly much, but it’s hard to say it’s acceptable if we haven’t actually seen it.

Well, this may be a bad sterotype but I seriously doubt any man is going to recognize a dress from someone elses wedding. And especially since it is his wedding, I think a guests dress is going to be the least of his worries.

I think a black and ivory dress is totally fine to wear to a wedding. As long as the dress isn’t all white or all ivory, I think you’re fine,

And, I doubt the groom will recognize the dress. Guys don’t think that way! My FH would not even recognize the bridesmaids’ dresses in our own wedding, I don’t think.

Good luck with your decision, and welcome to the hive.

@chasesgirl: Good point. I barely remember anything the guests at my wedding wore, except for a really slutty dress one of DH’s cousins wore because everyone kept calling her “Boobies” all night. Haha.

@piano_woman:

That dress would be totally fine. Nobody would mistake you for the bride in it or think you were trying to upstage her, which is really the only issue with wearing white or ivory. If you have any doubts, I think the best thing to do would just be to call the bride (or shoot her an email) and ask if she minds.
