You look dynamite in the dress but honestly it is a little small on you.  It pulls across the hips and thighs.  The cleavage and the color, I don’t think, are a problem at all.  Just because it has a white background doesn’t mean anyone would mistake that dress for a wedding dress!  It would be fine for a wedding with some altering or getting a size up.

If a guest wore this to my wedding I’d probably be a little upset (if I noticed) but not because of the cleavage. That’s just redic. If you have it, rock it! But on the point of how white this dress it, I wouldn’t wear it. 

P.S. I’m seriously in love with that dress haha.

pammylammy :  Agree with you guys, I didn’t think it was too much cleavage at all based on the weddings I’ve been to.

I’m actually a little surprised at all the comments about cleavage. I recently read a post on here where everyone was upset that a lady wanted her friend to wear a bra, citing that we shouldn’t be ashamed of breasts, and if men can’t control themselves after seeing breasts that’s their problem and not ours. I’m genuinely curious as to how this is different? (I am not trying to stir trouble at all…I’m seriously just wondering)

aa625 :  It doesn’t show too much cleavage- you look awesome in it 🙂  

Do you know how formal the bride is going? If she’s wearing a traditional long bridal gown, then you should be fine because a bridal gown is just that- a bridal gown, and no-one else there is going to look similar. If however it’s a semi-formal wedding and there’s a chance the bride will be wearing a short white dress, perhaps even similar in style to yours but without floral design, then you may want to consider a different dress just to be on the safe side- not just for the bride’s sake, but so that you don’t spend the better part of the ceremony & reception feeling nervous and second-guessing yourself.

Personally I don’t have issues with people wearing white to my wedding but I don’t know how the bride in thsi case would feel. To avoid potential issues I would just go with another dress if possible

I think it really depends on the bride, but I wouldn’t personally be bothered by it. Could you ask her?

It’s a no for me. I wore a dress just like this to my bridal shower. The blue florals say “bridal” to me. I wouldn’t wear a dress with ANY white in it to a wedding, but that’s just me. No one is ever going to mistake a guest for the bride, but it’s just impolite.
