I’ll say what I say every time— this is ONE day that you can wear literally any other color. Why even consider wearing white when there’s an entire spectrum of colors you can wear? Let the bride be the only one in white. Save that dress for another occasion! It’s very pretty, but not for a wedding.

I’d personally not object to it at my wedding, but I don’t know the bride at all. In case of doubts, err on the side of “no.”

I agree with the others 😊 personally I would be fine with it, but you never know how other people would react. For me it’s less about not looking like the bride, and more about respecting the tradition.

BenneyJ :  This is not a floral dress, this is a white dress with flowers.

If I spent a year of my life and tens of thousands of dollars organizing an event to celebrate my marriage, and someone wore a strappy white dress on that one day, I would be upset.

Personally I wouldn’t mind especially since it’s not a floor length dress. But ine of my relatives is getting married this summer and she doesn’t even want people to wear white shoes or accessories, not to mention white details on their clothes. So it comes down to the type of person you’re dealing with. If you like it that much, why don’t you ask the bride directly?

It is not, and never has been, about being mistaken for the bride, though people keep trotting the phrase out. 

It is about white and ivory having become traditional for brides and it being courteous to allow them to be the only one wearing it.
