I searched this topic before, and it seems that there is a mixed reaction to guests wearing a partially white dress to a wedding.
I just wanted to check and see if people think this dress would be ok. Thank you in advance!

It’s fine. It may have a white background but it reads as a floral print dress.

I think thats fine. In my opinion any patterned dress is okay to wear as white is the background and not the focus of the dress.

That dress would not offend a bride. Wear it.

I think it’s fine but Ive seen reactions on the bee to dresses less white than that, it seems extremely silly to me. Unless you are wearing pure white or look like a bride, who cares?

I think it’s fine. You could throw on a navy or orange reddish cardigan on for good measure if it’ll make you feel better.

I voted maybe because in general I want to say NO NEVER, but the picture you included of the print dress really doesn’t look too white to me. So, I guess bold colorful prints on a white background are okay but solid white/ivory is not.

Should this dress offend a bride? No.
Could this dress offend a bride? Only if she is totally unreasonable.

Depends on how “crazy” the bride is. I would be fine with it. But others might not be… so think about the bride.

I’ll never really understand posts like this. Is this the only dress you own? Is it not simply easier to drop $15 at Old Navy (or any of the the other hundreds of stores that sell dresses) for a solid colored non-white dress than to have to possibly toe the line in a dress featuring a lot of white? The bride isn’t the only one at the wedding. SHE might be totally fine with it. But other guests talk and have opinions too-especially older, more traditional folks. You might not care, but it could still reflect poorly on you as well as the person who invited you. Why even bother risking it at all?

But people wll always find something to gossip/whinge about and perhaps the posters like these dresses more than anything else they’ve found.
For goodness sake, a boldly patterened dress like this (and there have been a few similar posts with similar dresses recently) is not too white. The whole point of ‘too white’ is to not look like/out do the bride. This looks nothing like a bridal dress unless the bride is going for something very alternative/non-traditional.

This dress isn’t white. It’s floral. No one would look at this dress and think OMG she’s wearing white to a wedding how awful of her.
If this is the dress you want to wear then wear it.
Why spend money on a new dress or wear something you don’t want to wear. Wear what you want. It has flowers all over it so unless the bride is wearing a dress with flowers all over it then I’d say you’re good. And as for people thinking or saying things about you. Who gives a rip?! Who cares if some stupid person says, “omg can you believe she wore that.” people will generally talk about other people no matter what they’re wearing so who cares.
