It has print, but I think it’s too much white vs. print.

I’m not a fan of any white for guests, even if it’s the background of a pattern. A lot of people would say it’s fine because there’s no way anyone would confuse you for the bride in that dress; personally, I feel like it’s less about being confused for the bride and more about letting the bride be special by allowing her to be the only person wearing white that day. I’d pick something else.

Nope, too white. Sorry bee! It’s pretty though! Wear it somewhere else 🙂

No. I honestly do not understand. Out of sooo many colors in the world, why do people insist on trying to wear white to a wedding? Seriously curious (no snark)

No…I personally would steer clear of anything even remotely white, period. Nice dress though

No. As with every other one of these posts, stay clear of white. 

One color, for one day, not that difficult. 

If you have to ask it’s a no.

Yes, so many MANY brides choose to wear dresses covered with black leaves and flowers……..ridiculous!

I guess it’s pretty white, however if you plan to wear the black shawl with it I think it’d be okay. I don’t think it looks bridal at all (unless you expect the bride’s taste to be less traditional).

Heck, my own aunt wore a long, slim white dress with white sequins, and a sheer white shawl to my wedding. I wasn’t upset about it, in fact I think it’s pretty funny, but that’s just me. It really wasn’t wedding appropriate. Another guest wore a dress similar to the one you shared, but I never thought twice about it.
