I just ordered a cute dress from The Limited to wear to one of my upcoming showers. My cousin and his fiance are getting married at the end of April, and I thought that I could kill two birds with one stone and wear this dress to her wedding.
I then got to thinking about it, and I wanted to know the rules on wearing white to a wedding. I know that this dress has a large floral print, but I’m concerned that the base color is white. I know that the bride can sometimes get easily flustered with things. I know that there’s no way that it would be confused with a bridal dress, but do you think I should choose another one, just to keep the peace? I would be wearing a navy cardigan with it. I wouldn’t want to hurt her feelings in any way. Am I overreacting with this?

I personally think it is okay, but I’m curious to think what the rest of the bees think!

i think you would be fine… if you are at the least bit concerned.. pair it with a green or black wrap and jewels to pull the colors out more.. but i wouldnt be in the least upset over that dress..i find it very pretty!

I think you are fine, however if you are really worried about it, send her a pic and ask her if she’s cool with it.

It’s fine. As long as it’s not solid white or ivory, no-one should even think twice about it.

Especially with the navy cardigan I think it’ll be just perfect.
Really cute dress!

I personally would not care. One of my close friends wore a dress to my wedding which was mostly white with a black design. I barely noticed. I don’t care about this type of thing though.

I’d think it’s OK! There’s really nothing bridal about this dress.

I think you could get away with it. If you wanted to be extra safe, you could get a cute hunter green cardigan to go with it.

It has huge green flowers on it…nothing like a wedding dress

I am interested to see the result too. I bought a white floral dress (with a lot of black/navy blue flowers) a while ago and been meaning to wear it to a wedding since I don’t have a lot of nice summer dresses. After i read on the board I am worried floral dress in white might get myself in troubles as well.

I think it’s totally fine! And others’ opinions on it makes me feel better, b/c I have a similar dress with bright oranges and pinks that I was contemplating wearing to an upcoming wedding!
