My old roomate is getting married next weekend and I’m trying to figure out what to wear. I know it isn’t one of her colors or the style of her Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses so, even though it is fairly apparently a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress, would it be okay to wear?

Yes, it is fine to wear, especially since you said it is not the color of her bridesmaid dresses. It looks formal and dressy. Also, kudos to you for finding another way to use your bridesmaid dress.

Looks perfectly fine to me!

I think it’s okay to wear, but you’re right, it looks a lot like a bridesmaid’s dress. If that doesn’t bother you, then go for it. The more I think about it, though, I think the shoes are part of the reason it looks like that. I think if you go with silver or another color shoes and fun accessories, it would look less bridesmaid-y. Good luck!

Thanks yall. I just know it is a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress, I don’t know if other people will or it will matter.

I wouldn’t have guessed it was a bridesmaid’s dress by looking at the picture. I think it’s perfect as a guest for a wedding

i think its fine. like you said, as long as its not one of the weddings colors, then you are all good. i wore a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress as a guest once and i just checked beforehand that it was not the brides Bridesmaid or Best Man color!

When Bridesmaid or Best Man dress shopping my sister fell in love with a dress. When I picked up my wedding dress, she decided she really wanted it and bought it with plans to wear it to a wedding or 2. Go for it!

I actually wore my bridesmaid dress from one wedding to a different wedding – all I received were compliments! Also my dress was a different color/style from the bridesmaid dresses at the other wedding.

I think its just a mental thing but I wouldnt buy a dress sold as a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress to wear to someone elses wedding, especially if its from davids bridal because their dresses are well known, I sadly know the style number of that dress without even looking it up, but maybe thats because I’ve been to davids bridal too many times

I think it’s fine! I am actually wearing that exact dress as an Maid/Matron of Honor next weekend (in gray instead of blue) and it’s a cute, flattering dress. I don’t haunt David’s Bridal or anything and I would have just assumed it was a regular dress if I didn’t have reason to know otherwise. I’m guessing 99% of the guests won’t have any idea that it’s designed as a bridesmaid dress.

I think it would work totally fine!

I think it’s 100% ok. The ultimate goal of a bridesmaid’s dress is to have something you can wear again, right? I can’t imagine a better place to wear it than at a wedding (especially because you said that it doesn’t resemble the actual bridesmaids’ dresses).
