I think that since you are asking about it, you already feel like it is too white. I’d say keep looking for a dress that isn’t white. I doubt this will be the only dress you’ll ever love. nd you can always wear this dress to something else if you want tp get it anyway 🙂

That is an expensive dress! I do think its too white but also,with what you’re willing to pay,I can imagine the venue would be…lavish. And that the bride could probably stand out over that lol

Def not too white, gorgeous print! Looks like a very summer wedding dress. So as not to look like you’re trying to compete with the real flowers and white dress, I would tone down shoes and accessories if I wore that dress. No gold lamé headdresses or jeweled heels.

Yeah I would vote – dont wear it. Its too white, too short, not wedding appropriate, loud and kinda ugly. Jmho

I really think its best to avoid white altogether at anyone else’s wedding.  It’s impossible to know how the bride will feel about it.  Some brides wouldn’t care, others might be sensitive about it.  Personally, I will be ticked it anyone wears a scrap of white at my wedding.  It’s the only thing I am totally bridezilla about.  I have seriously considered putting it on the invitations!

I’d be more concerned about the fabric. IMO jersey is too casual for a wedding.

CityGirl:  I don’t think it’s too much white.  And I think the pattern is cool – very fashion forward (which obviously some people haven’t caught up to).

I wouldn’t do that. It will almost definitely backfire on you.

Jabberwocky:  Haha.  I won’t actually do it but my wedding is a 30 person destination wedding so it won’t be hard to get word out that I’m not cool with it.  That being said I did tell people they SHOULD wear flip flops so I figure I can be slightly bridezilla on this one point.

The way I see it, some brides may find it offensive because the entire background is white. Do you really want to take that risk? It is so easy to just pick a non-white dress instead and then you don’t have to worry about it.

It’s a large colourful print with a hint of white background. That’s totally fine. I think I would only ever care if someone wore a floor length white dress to my wedding lol A short white dress is pushing it a little too, but patterns, I tkink that’s just being picky

PS: wearing a colourful belt with it in one of the colours in the print would make it look even less white maybe 🙂

I don’t think it’s too white — I don’t think it’s very pretty, either.
