    I wouldn’t care if someone wore that to my wedding but I’m sure plenty of people would (brides and guests). Many bees post dresses that have patterns with white in them, this is a straight up white dress with a pattern on only a third of the dress. You have a few months to find something that has a bit more color in it, perhaps the bee can help if you’re not having much luck?

    I tend to just avoid white because it’s not that difficult and I would just rather not take the chance of upsetting someone.

    Some brides don’t care and I personally wouldn’t, but it’s definitely frowned upon to wear a floor length white dress to a wedding, even if you accessorize it with another colour.

    I would not wear that. Where is the wedding? If it’s in Northern Europe, Canada, or much of the US, March is generally cold.

    A floor length white dress to a wedding that isn’t yours? Do you even have to ask? Realistically, you KNOW you can’t wear this;  that’s why you’re asking. Any other color will work, and you HAVE to choose white?

    I looked at the dress before reading the post and my first thought was “What a unique dress for a BRIDE.”
    Don’t wear that. You have more than enough time to find a different dress.

    I wouldn’t really care but I would suggest playing it safe and finding something else.

    Perhaps you could consider an option similar to the one below: vibrant colors that signal spring, with longer sleeves in case March is still a bit chilly.

    I wouldn’t wear it as is. If you have already purchased the dress, and don’t have another choice, you could consider buying a pink tunic and wearing it over the dress.

    It probably wouldn’t look bad if you wore the pink cardigan all night but if you were to take it off it’s obviously very white. If the pattern went up the entire dress it would be fine. While I probably wouldn’t care some people can take great offense and since you don’t know the bride well enough to ask I would try to find something else.
