    It’s almost all white. There are a ton of cute dresses out there that are great colors – i’d keep looking!

    I didn’t vote because there wasn’t a radio button for “yes, it’s ok to wear but I don’t care about the no person other than the bride wearing white”.  Some would probably say it’s too white but I don’t see the reason behind that rule.

    I think it is too white. I wouldn’t chance it.

    I wouldn’t freak if someone wore it to my wedding, but if it isn’t a dress you already own, why not purchase something that isn’t even questionably taboo?

    You know the bride best, so I think you already know the answer. It probably wouldn’t bother me, but usually if you have to ask, it probably isn’t okay.

    It is too white. And I agree with noritake22 if you have to ask it’s probably not okay…

    In my opinion, it’s not too white. (also, it’s adorable!) I don’t really understand the “don’t wear white” rule. As long as you’re not wearing a floor-length satin ballgown & carrying a bouquet, I’m pretty sure you’ll stand out from the bride. 🙂

    Depends? What kind of event is it? If someone wears something like that to mine I’d be like “okay?” just because I’m already just wearing a short white dress, not a gown for our more casual wedding.

    I voted “it’s too white”, but maybe if you punch it up with some colorful accessories you could get away with it.

    I personally wouldn’t be offended by another guest wearing white, so I think it’s okay. But, if I were you, I’d wear a wide black belt with it, and black shoes. That way, nobody can accuse you of looking too bridal.

    If you break up the colors by adding a belt, you can probably get away with it.  I tend to stay away from any white at all at weddings though.  You never know what a brides reaction will be, even if you know the bride well.  So if you’re hesitant, don’t get it.  Its super cute though, so maybe you should just get it and wear it somewhere else!

    It wouldn’t bother me, but it can’t hurt to ask the bride. She’ll probably appreciate that you asked! My cousin’s fiance has a lot of white and she texted a picture to me to check that I wouldn’t mind it. I thought it was a sweet gesture.
