I would not wear that to a wedding, but it’s very pretty!

Hard pass. Pretty dress, but not acceptable for a wedding.

Seriously, how hard is it to avoid ONE COLOR for one afternoon/evening? This is a white dress. No. Just no.

I’m also in the “florals are fine even on a white background” camp, but this is too white.

I just don’t understand. Whenever people ask these questions I’m generally of the camp of “if you have to ask it’s a no”. But I mean good gracious out of ALLLLLL the dress options out there why even *consider* something this white?? I seriously don’t mean to be snarky – but really?

Not even close to being appropriate.

I’m super generous on this topic….yours is literally the very first outfit that I’ve ever said is absolutely not appropriate as a guest.

No way.  Seriously, you can’t find one other color you like to wear?  No idea why people find it so difficult not to wear white for one day.

It is very pretty, but no. Even if the bride doesn’t mind, you may get lots of side eye from guests. It’s not worth it.

I try to think of my future SIL who is the “wear a speck of white to my wedding and I will cut you” type of girl when responding to these threads. Just to be as cautious as possible. This one would definitely get a guest shanked at her wedding, so my vote is no.
