    I have a very similar dress from Banana Republic! But that being said, I feel like it may be a bit too casual … maybe if you dress it up with a blazer and accessories it would look better?

    It’s a dress, you’ll be covered up, it’s not white, it’s fine. 

    Ladies on the Bee are way too fussy about what guests at weddings wear in general. Unless you stand out in a bad way (very short or low cut, too fancy/flashy for the situation such as heavy beading or sequins, way too casual such as jeans) no one will give a second thought to what you’re wearing.

    Too funny, a friend of mine just used those dresses as her bridesmaid dresses! I think it’s very cute to wear as a guest.

    I think it’s a great dress!  Have some fun with shoes or jewelry- black and white is classic and can go with anything!

    I have that dress- Calvin Klein? It’s super cute. I wear it to work and I wore it to a rehersal dinner with a large pearl necklace. It’s totally appropiate for a wedding.

    ktsteimel:  Personally I wouldn’t wear black and white to a wedding, since those are the traditional colour-no-nos. But if it’s casual I don’t think anyone would mind, especially if you wear non-black/white shoes. I really like the dress!

    Go for it!  The bee is SO critical of guest clothing.   You’ll get a ton of “don’t wear black” “dont wear white!”  But if you posted a dress that was a color you’d be expected to find out the wedding colors to make sure you don’t match.  FI’s sister once wore a dress that was COMPLETELY sequined to a wedding.  No one will give a second thought to what you wear and that dress is very verstile.

    Very cute.  Wear some chunky jewelry and fun heels and you’re golden!
