To wear as a guest at a wedding?

Especially considering its from their wedding range

I think it depends what you wear with it. Veil and tiara then too bridal. A contrast colour of shoes or jacket or bag then I think it would be fine. It does say it's grey even though it looks white.

I think it is a stunning dress. We go to a lot of weddings and I don't think that is too bridal at all.

I would be careful with accessories to be on the safe side.

You'd need dark accessories and even then you won't always have your hat on and your bag in your hand and will just be wafting around in a nearly bridal dress. Do they do it in another colour?

I think if you;re asking you;ll be conscious of it and should go for something else.

I would definitely assume you were in the bridal party in that

I think it's a silvery grey. It doesn't come in any other colours unfortunately.

I'm worried it looks like a dress someone would wear for a registry office wedding. The Asis wedding range is for guests... they have a separate bridal range, but it doesn't help that they've styled it like a bridesmaid dress!

If it can be seen as white it would be considered too bridal even if it is a plastic bag. I would choose another.

Ok so you've all confirmed what I thought.

It's so hard to find a nice dress.

I don't think it's too bridal.

It's a grey knee length pretty dress, I don't see it as bridal at all. Unless the wedding is a registry office and bride isn't wearing white then I would go for it.

Nanasueathome Sun 16-Oct-16 14:23:52

The fact that the model is holding a posy implies it is an actual bridal dress
I would not even think about it
Find something else

Endoftheroad16 Sun 16-Oct-16 14:48:13

I think it's supposed to be more of a bridesmaids dress than a wedding dress.
However, too many people have confirmed my worry so I think I will look for something else.

Any suggestions for pretty dresses that would suit a winter wedding?

Thanks but the first one is too similar to the brides wedding dress - except colour obviously!
Ideally don't want a black dress nor anything too clingy as I'm still carrying an extra stone of baby weight and I can't see me losing it before the wedding.
