That’s not a lot of white. I’m fine with black at weddings.
i might be in the minority, but black is classic and i would wear black to everything. That’s not a lot of white so you’re good to go!
I wouldn’t mind black. It is as ‘funeral’ as you make it look. Paired with nice shoes and accessories, it can be chic and elegant. I don’t think there are inappropriate colors for a wedding, although I would never dare to wear something plain white as a guest (but with patterns, at a semi-formal/casual event, I would). However, as a bride, I couldn’t care less … my reception dress isn’t even white. 🙂
Not loving the dress. But the color combo is fine
Yes, that’s fine to wear. While not wearing white to weddings is still the rule of thumb, wearing black to weddings (particularly evening weddings) is pretty much fine now.
I don’t mind the black and white, but it just doesn’t look very dressy to me- more like a schoolgirl.
Thanks everyone! Needed opinions before ordering. Its more of a casual wedding not super dressy
@Tracy4747: I don’t think there’s anything wrong with wearing black to a wedding as a general rule, though I probably wouldn’t wear it to a outdoor summer wedding. And it’s certainly not too white, if that’s what you were worried about.
Glad you decided on ordering it!
Very cute dress, I’d wear it in a heartbeat 🙂 I think it’s fine to wear to a wedding that’s a little more on the casual side but maybe it’s not quite right for a very posh wedding? The dress definitely doesn’t look like it belongs on a funeral and the amount of white is minimal so as long as you feel it’s dressy enough for the wedding you’re invited to, you’re good to go 🙂
ETA: Just saw your update. Yu’re definitely good to go then 🙂
Ehhh tbqh this dress is giving me a shirly-temple-meets-wednesday-addams thing that is making me feel like it’s not something to wear to a wedding.
