I think it’s pretty! Unless the bride is wearing a floral wedding dress I would say go for it! ๐Ÿ™‚ maybe you could bring a cardigan if it’s in a church

It’s beautiful! If it was my dress, I wouldn’t wear it, especially if you are concerned, better safe then sorry. If you showed up at my wedding wearing that dress though I doubt I would think twice about it. 

I agree with what another pp said, just get a navy cardigan to wear over it. And that’ll help tone it down a little bit.

I wouldn’t wear a dress that’s mostly white even if it has a pattern. That’s a lot of white.

It’s gorgeous, and I don’t think it’s bridal, but I also believe that if you have to ask the answer is no.

Pair it with a navy cardigan, both to offset the white and help keep the girls in check.

Otherwise it’s lovely and looks lovely on you. And thanks for the motivation to work out today!

has everyone gone mad undecided this dress is about 90% white… no its not suitable or appropriate and yes you would get talked about because everything about it from the bold pattern, the white, the tight fit, the V cut pushed up clevage, the spagetti staps (im assuming but possibly strapless) SCREAMS attention seeker

there is a MILLION shades of colour in this world and all you have to avoid is ONE, its not hard

If you’re concerned enough to post it, surely there is another dress you can wear. There are always going to be people who believe that any amount of white is not okay to wear to a wedding. People on this forum may be reasonable, but we can’t vouch for the beliefs of the guests at the wedding you’re going to. If it was me, I’d choose something else and just avoid the issue entirely.

It’s an awesome dress. If that dress stirs up any issues then the people aren’t worth having in your life.

I don’t think it’s bad, but I generally go by the “if you have to ask, don’t wear it” philosophy.

If someone has a problem with this dress at a wedding they are either a crazy bridezilla or massive prude. Weddings where I live must be so different to other bees because this would be standard wedding attire here. Including the “attention seeking” cleavage ๐Ÿ˜‚

It’s quite common where I live in the UK to wear a white dress with a big black flower print, so the dress will be fine. Don’t wear white accessories though. I think the best way to wear it is with a black hat.

I saw a bee had posted that floral print wedding dresses are very ‘in’…they definitely are but that hasn’t really translated into seeing real brides in them very often, it’s a very alternative look, and you can hardly ban all floral prints at a summer wedding!

Yeah, I think it’s a white dress with flowers on it. If it was a blue dress with white flowers it’s a different story. It’s not always the bride you have to worry about… it’s the snarky older women who may gasp. 

My rule of thumb in life, “when in doubt… don’t”. If you had to ask us then you probably shouldn’t wear. I wouldn’t suggest it to a friend. 

That being said- it’s adorable and the cleavage isn’t bad. Just find another event to enjoy it at.

I think it’s very beautiful. Maybe a cardigan or something over it? I think that would definitely put it in the “safe” category.

I think it’s a great dress, and you look fab, but I wouldn’t wear it to the wedding just to be comfortable and not be stared at by all the old ladies who might be whispering.  Also, could you dance in it? It looks pretty tight for dancing!
