BIL’s wedding in August, dh is best man, dd (14) bridesmaid and ds (11) an usher.

It won’t be super formal but I wanted something different to just a normal dress. Would wear hair in a messy side bun with a flower probably and have ordered a pair of gorgeous matching heels.

Opinions please lovely mumsnetters..smile

The shoes...

I love it. Jumpsuits are my favourite and that’s a particularly nice one.
The shoes are lovely too.

BlondeB83 Sun 21-Jan-18 09:14:26

It’s lovely!

BreakfastAtSquiffanys Sun 21-Jan-18 09:14:51

Is it grey or white?

BexleyRae Sun 21-Jan-18 09:15:00

That's lovely, you will look fab

Lovely.

Asking as you’re tall(ish), it’s great.

I personally wouldn't wear something mainly white to someone's wedding. It is a nice jumpsuit though.

Wilburissomepig Sun 21-Jan-18 09:16:39

I LOVE it, but I wouldn't wear white/ivory to someone else's wedding. It may just have enough grey on it though, maybe I'm just old fashioned. grin

Wasn't there a thread on here saying never wear white to a wedding unless bride?

AnaWinter Sun 21-Jan-18 09:17:23

It is lovely but I wouldn’t wear white

OhBergine Sun 21-Jan-18 09:17:52

I really like it and the shoes are nice too. But I think it's a bit "white" to wear to another's wedding...

BifsWif Sun 21-Jan-18 09:19:10

Love it!

Crumbs1 Sun 21-Jan-18 09:19:53

Mmmnnn personally I dislike it. Are you very tall and slim? If you’re carrying a few extra pounds, it might not be flattering. The shoes will sink in the grass.

Bluntness100 Sun 21-Jan-18 09:20:07

I also would not wear that to someone's wedding party. It will look like you desperately want to be part of the wedding party too. I'd go for something with a different base colour.

BreakfastatSquiffanys ha I’ve just been reading about the mother in law who’s wearing white at the wedding.. it’s neither, hard to describe but it’s a very pale colour with black and grey detail. Definitely wouldn’t mix me up with the bride!

Neapolitanicecream Sun 21-Jan-18 09:20:53

To white ---no don't compete with bride

QueenArnica Sun 21-Jan-18 09:21:45

It’s definitely not white!! Yes I’m relatively tall and slim.

PaperdollCartoon Sun 21-Jan-18 09:22:21

I like it but as others have said, don’t wear white to someone else’s wedding

Treaclespongeandcustard Sun 21-Jan-18 09:23:16

I think it's gorgeous. Maybe you should run it by the bride and see whether she thinks it'd be ok. I wouldn't mind if I was the bride but I'd be tempted to include her in the discussion so that you can avoid any uncomfortable feelings.

Pugsleypugs Sun 21-Jan-18 09:24:44

It's a bit close to the mark for me so if you do decide yo wear it I would make sure you have a bright handbag or something similar to break up the v.pale / white a bit more.

QueenArnica Sun 21-Jan-18 09:24:58

And I am part of the wedding party, staying with the bride the night before having my hair done etc. smile

LyraPotter Sun 21-Jan-18 09:25:13

I like it and wouldn't have cared if anyone wore it to my wedding! Pale colours are totally fine at a wedding imo x

sonjadog Sun 21-Jan-18 09:25:14

To me it looks like it could be one of those outfits that looks great in theory but not in reality, so I’d order it up early and try it out, and make sure I could return if necessary.
