    Yes, it's clearly not a bridal gown

    No! It's white you fool!

    @FauxBoho:   I can’t see the pic, but I voted it’s fine to wear because I don’t care what other people wear at my wedding.  I never have, and never will be, the fashion police.

    EDIT:  Oh I see it now, that’s a pretty dress, but definitely fine IMO.  It’s not even close to anything bridal.

    Yes absolutely.  I once completely stressed myself out about wearing a floral printed dress that had the littlest bit of white background. Not only was it not an issue, but I got compliments from the bride and her mother!  Unless you’re wearing an all white dress in some sort of bridal material, I wouldn’t sweat it.

    Totally fine.  There’s a difference between a printed dress with a white background and a white dress. 

    It was hot and we married outdoors.  Quite a few of the ladies wore sundresses with white backgrounds.  I ain’t mad.

    A bold print is fine.

    I still don’t think that dress is white! I think only an all-white dress would be a problem. Personally, I wouldn’t be offended if someone wore an all-white dress, just confused about why they would do that since it’s pretty common knowledge that you’re not supposed to ….


    But back on topic: that dress is 100% okay to me. It’s a graphic dress, not a white dress.

    I voted “No”. I actually think the print is fine, but it’s that it has so much white AND that it is floor-length that made me say no. The bottom skirt part has a LOT of white in it, and i think the floor-length makes it a little bit sketchy to wear to a wedding.

    I would have said yes if it was knee-length.
