    I don’t think it’s appropriate to wear to a wedding. I don’t know how I’d tell someone that though.

    It’s my personal opinion that it isn’t up to me to “let” my guests wear anything.  They will wear what they choose to wear, and if it’s inappropriate, they are the ones who will look foolish.

    Unless that dress is the same as yours, most likely no one will think she is the bride.  If it is the same as yours, I would say something.

    I would really really really want someone not to wear that, but I don’t know what you can do to stop it. at elast you know in advance so you can say somethign I guess. Or just have a floor length coat waiting for her at the door that she can put on over it. 🙂

    That’s not appropriate to wear out of the HOUSE in my opinion, but I don’t think I get to choose what my guests wear.

    It is a white party dress.  I see a lot of women wearing that style dress as a reception dress! She absolutely should not be wearing that to a wedding!!

    Although I am not the type of bride to tell people what they can and cannot wear….

    WTF?  This looks like a bachelorette party dress, or something from a tame bridal boudoir shoot

    I’d probably reply “oh what color are you ordering it in?”

    At the end of the day she is the one thats going to look ridiculous

    regardless of the color (no one should wear white anyway…) that dress is a bit ridic. i was in a wedding in march and someone wore a “stripper-like” dress and seriously it was all anyone talked about all night. if you’re close enough to the person that’s she’s sending you a picture of her dress beforehand, perhaps you could find a nice way to tell her it’s inappropriate.

    My cousin was going to wear a dress very similar to this to my wedding. I simply told her that I didn’t feel like I could dictate to her what to wear, but it would mean a lot to me if she didn’t wear all white to my wedding. My cousin is also a teenager and didn’t know that was a no no, and we are close enough that we can talk about that stuff. She took the dress back and got something MUCH more appropriate. 🙂 hope that helps!

    It looks prom-ish or bridal in the sense that it has the same styling, though shorter. I’m surprised someone would wear that to a wedding. However, I don’t know that I’d tell someone what they could wear.

    At my brother’s wedding, this girl wore a long, white slinky, satiny dress (think Ginger from Gilligan’s Island) that looked somewhat bridal … and! she wore it with NO BRA. And it was extremely obvious she didn’t have a bra on. I thought it totally not appropriate, but what do ya do? 🙂
