    I don’t think they would find it distasteful or offensive.  Now if it was REAL leopard skin, that would be another thing!  But faux leopard should not be a problem.  And if they do have a problem with it… that’s kinda extreme!

    I hardly doubt they would notice! Also, it’s not like it’s REAL leopard, like you said, it’s just the print. I think it’s fine.

    I think of animal print as a pattern, just like stripes, polka dots, paisley, etc.  It’s not actual skin or fur – those would be different.  I can’t imagine anyone would find this offensive (unless they are super overly sensitive).

    I’m a lifelong vegetarian and think animal prints (faux, of course) are totally fun! Unless you were wearing fox fur jacket with leather pants, I wouldn’t even think about it.

    Interesting! It’s not like you’re forcing anyone to eat non-vegan food by wearing animal print so I voted no.

    I don’t think the leopard print is offensive, but I’m also not sure it’s wedding-appropriate. Personally I’ve never seen animal print clothing that actually looks formal.

    Not all weddings are formal.  I went to a wedding reception that was casual and the bride wore blue jeans.

    I’d say you’re fine! Let’s face it – the groom is going to be so busy, I doubt he’ll even notice. If you’re comfy, go for it.

    @Lee_Ann: True, it kind of goes without saying that my statement about formalwear only applies if it is a formal wedding.

    I think your ok, if it was real fur then you would be in trouble and not just with the vegans 🙂

    Some people get offended by faux FUR, because it still contributes to the image that fur is fashionable, but I have never ever heard of someone being offended by the mere pattern. I think you’re fine! And you’re a better person than I, because I wouldn’t even think twice about wearing leather shoes to a vegan’s wedding. 😛

    I’m a veggetarian and I wouldn’t be offended at all. I wear animal prints but would not wear anything that was real and would be offended if someone showed up in fur.

    Wow if someone vegan/vegetarian started hating on me for wearing a leopard print pattern, I would just laugh lmao.

    I really doubt the bride and groom will even notice, they’ll be so busy! Also, I have a leopard print skirt that is actually very nice for a formal event, I wore it to high tea at a very ritzy hotel last month!
