@intrepida_ets:  if paired with the right accessories, AND you make sure the bride’s gown looks nothing like it AT ALL, I think it would be ok for a high class wedding.

If her dress is a sheath or a slight a-line, I’d say No. But if she’s wearing a ball gown/princess/trumpet, I’d say OK.

No way. Still too bridal, and blush is becoming a popular bridal color. Even if she wore white, I think it would be inappropriate. Maybe if it was a more bright and vibrant color, but even then it would strike me as attention seeking unless you friend is having a VERY formal (strict black tie/evening gown) wedding.

That is a gorgeous dress but certainly not a bridal gown (well not a traditional one anyways) so I say go for it!!

 Edit: Wait is the dress gold like the bottom dress or blush like the top dress? If it’s blush then unfortunately Its not really appropriate. That is boardering on a bridal gown and as the previous poster said blush is a very popular colour right now.

@intrepida_ets:  Seeing the bride’s dress doesn’t change my opinion at all. Regardless of her wearing white and it being full, you will STILL look like you are wearing a borderline wedding dress to her wedding. I would be offended if my friend wore that, and I am sure most of the guests would raise their eyebrows too.

Why don’t you buy the dress for yourself and wear it for your first anniversary with your husband? Make a point to go somewhere really elegant so you can wear your other dream dress where you don’t risk stealing someone else’s spotlight.

i would not wear that dress as a guest to someone else’s wedding. it will compete with the bride. do you have any other fancy type event that you can attend? maybe a black tie charity function?

@intrepida_ets:  Just wondering – are you in the US or in another country? Es que tiene mucho que ver con las normas culturales, ?sabes? Si estas en un pais latino, creo que si le pusieras un chal en un color vibrante, por ejemplo, podrias usar el vestido rosa sin problema para una boda elegante. Es cuestion de emplear bien los accesorios, ?no? (Perdona la falta de puntuacion, tildes, diacriticos, etc.)

It is a replica of a wedding dress. It having slightly less tulle at the bottom does not all of the sudden make it not bridal. I would find it very odd to see somebody walking around a wedding in a wedding dress that wasn’t the bride. I suppose the easiest answer, though, is asking the bride what she thinks?

If you have to ask, you probably know the answer’s no.

Unless it is an extremely fancy black-tie evening wedding – you would absolutely raise eyebrows, even if the bride didn’t notice or care. Not worth it.   If you love the dress, get it and save it for a holiday party or some kind of function.
