kaiuahuna :  I wouldn’t wear this, a bit of white is totally fine but this dress is predominantly white with a few flowers.  Your boyfriend’s family will probably be side eyeing you if you show up in this.

Beautiful dress but I definitely would not wear it to a wedding. Far too much white. I go by the simple rule of thumb to just avoid white for weddings. I have any other day to wear it.

kaiuahuna :  It fits you beautifully, but I wonder if the deep cleavage is a bit risqué for a wedding of a member of your boyfriend’s family, some of whom it seems don’t know you yet. I would suggest you consider other alternatives, perhaps some like these:

kaiuahuna : I wouldn’t wear this. It’s very pretty but I think in your position (BF’s family) you’ll be too “prominent” and I think you’ll get some side eye/gossip. I would wear something in a bold color

kaiuahuna :  after seeing it, I definitely stand by what I said. There is WAY too much white in that dress. Again, you can wear literally any other color. It is a gorgeous dress for sure, just save this for a different occasion. As a bride, I would definitely be annoyed if a guest wore this to my wedding. 

also, color aside, the neckline is quite low and while I think it is very pretty and not a “scandalous” dress by any means, if this is the wedding of your boyfriend’s family member, you may want to wear something with less cleavage so you don’t get any side eye. you know how judgy people can be when it comes to the SO of a family member!

No, I wouldn’t wear that dress. It’s mostly white. As a bride, I couldn’t care less if a guest wore a white dress to my wedding (as long as it’s not a wedding dress), but as a guest, I wouldn’t do it. You don’t know if the bride will mind, and you will for sure be getting side eyes from some of the other guests.

Also, I do think it is too low cut. Again, I wouldn’t care if I saw someone something that low cut, but many people WOULD find it inappropriate to wear to a wedding (especially if it’s a church wedding), so because of that, I would avoid it. Especially because it is your SO’s family.

There are a LOT of pretty, springtime dresses out there that aren’t predominately white, and you have such a great figure, that I can’t imagine you won’t be able to find a different dress that will look just as beautiful.

Please don’t. My husband’s brother’s girlfriend wore a long white dress with blue flowers to our wedding and SO many people made comments to us about how inapproriate it was. In the background of our first dance photos, she is in most of the shots and she stands out SO much and it looks ridiculous. I absolutely hate that she felt the need to wear that when she could have worn ANY other color for ONE day and worn this dress to something else. It was so rude and attention-seeking and many guests thought so. Please wear anything else!!!

kaiuahuna :  After seeing your photo, definitely do not wear that. It would be beautiful for another summer function, but not a wedding and especially not one for your boyfriend’s brother. Let his bride have her day in white. You haven’t even met her yet and it would be incredibly rude to show up in white. As I said, that is what my DH’s brother’s gf did to us and it gave a totally negative impression to many people. I had only met her a couple of times, she had only known DH’s brother for about 2 months prior to the wedding and it just came off totally bad.

kaiuahuna :  No. I’m always in the camp of “if you have to ask, you know the answer”. When there are millions of other dresses in the world, why wear one that is primarily white to a wedding? It’s a beautiful dress and it looks amazing on you – but not for someone else’s wedding. Especially not when it’s your boyfriend’s brother and you’re meeting family for the first time at one of their weddings.

kaiuahuna :  That looks great on you, but like others said, too much white.
