Love the dress! There is rarely confusion as to who is the bride at a wedding. And… for all you know the bride might be wearing any color of the rainbow.

If you are close with the bride and you say you wouldn’t wear it if she had a problem, then just ask her? Everyone has their own style and idea of what’s classy or not, inappropriate or not, sexy or not. I personally don’t think the color is that much of an issue, but again, just ask the bride!

The comments that this dress is slutty/bachelorette party/clubbing dress are pretty funny.  I’m curious where some of you live?  This dress would be pretty standard cocktail/wedding attire in a large metro city like LA or NYC.  It is definitely NOT something you’d wear to a club, lol.

So, OP, maybe if you’re attending a wedding in the bible belt, don’t wear this, but otherwise, you won’t have issues.  It is not bridal at all and it would not stand out in any way.

Lol! This thread is still happening? Ok, I’ll bite. So she asked for opinions out of curiosity and is still wearing a white and black, non-“slutty” cocktail dress to her FI’s cousin’s wedding. The horror.

Etiquette or not, in most parts of the US it’s pretty understood that guests are to not wear white. I personally wouldn’t do it out of respect for the bride. There are lots of beautiful, non-white/non-ivory dresses out there, that I wouldn’t even consider wearing white/ivory.

That being said, I’d never buy that dress anyway, as I don’t think it’s the prettiest dress out there, to put it politely, and I’m on the taller end and don’t like to wear dresses that I think are too short. Just me though :).

Ashley029:  That’s inappropriate to wear to a wedding (Too white & too short). It would be fine for a school dance or a night out on the town. Plenty of other options on dresses out there to wear to a wedding.

The OP already said way back on page 1 that she is wearing the dress.

6 pages later the debate continues.

Ashley029:  “well i’m wearing it, it shouldnt offend anyone lol and its dressy its a bcbg”<br />

“Shouldn’t” and “won’t” are two very different things, if this thread is any indication.

Ashley029:  did this wedding happen yesterday in nyc?  if so, I saw you.  if not, it’s a funny coincidence.  someone who’s about the height you said you are wore this exact dress that you said you’re wearing to a wedding on this past Sunday. The bride was in cream lace and someone else was in a long green dress- it was a diverse group that I saw walking.  And there was a girl wearing this exact same white/ivory dress with black lace  that I do still think is too white to wear to someone else’s wedding (even more so since the bride I saw was in cream) and that definitely wasn’t too short at all.  

Anyway just seemed too funny not to mention just in case the bee and the real world collided yesterday.

Ashley029:  I like it but I think it might be a bit short. It’s best for formal do’s to just have one BIg Reveal (although usually not ‘the top of the leg’ – rather your toned calves)

So in this dress you’re revealing everything. There’s a keyhole for boobage Reveal, there’s the short skirt Reveal (with everyone thinking: don’t you dare bend over, like.. ever ! lol), there’s the arm Reveal and the shoulder Reveal, the knee Reveal and the thigh Reveal and possibly even the toe Reveal if you’re going in sandals. Like, are you sure you’re wearing anything here? Kidding.

I do love the style of it, the colours- I don’t think it’s ‘too white’ like some bees say (I just wouldn’t wear all white) I personally would concentrate on your best asset. If it’s your height, you can still do unbelievable things for that by wearing a long dress and really high shoes and just maybe a keyhole boobage Reveal. You could have bear arms too but arrive in a jacket for extra classiness.
