I have an issue. I found a beautiful dress from Nordstrom that I love and would be perfect for a reception dress. My original thought was that I would dye the dress after the wedding to a less bridal looking color, however due to the fabric of the dress (polyester/rayon) it can not be dyed.
I was planning on wearing the dress to the formal night on our honeymoon. Were taking a cruise about 4 months after the wedding to Alaska. If the gown can’t be dyed and is still ivory, will that look weird? Can you wear a white dress if its not for a wedding?
Here is the link to the dress

Please tell me what you think!

I accidentally said you couldn’t wear it, but I TOTALLY meant to put that you could. Re-wear away, that is beautiful dress 🙂

I personally wouldn’t wear it again unless it was hemmed to be knee length or shorter.

I agree with Chicagobride092010

I think you can totally wear it again. To me, it doesn’t look like a wedding gown at all, definitely not in the traditional sense. Nobody will see it and think "bride," they’ll think "wow, what a gorgeous white evening gown."

You could totally wear it! I can picture it now, and you would stop the show, just like you did at your wedding!

You can wear it! (Just not to anyone elses wedding.) 🙂 I’ve been to plenty of formal events and lots of women have beautiful white or off white dresses. Personally, I’d look into dying it, but thats just my tastes.

I voted that you could rewear it, but I wanted to add that maybe you could shorten it. Either way, it’s totally cruise appropriate.

Definitely cruise appropriate and rewearable. You’ll look gorgeous!
