to let my daughter wear this dress as a wedding guest?

Or does it look too much like a bridesmaid/flower girl dress?

This isn't the exact dress, but it's similar. I've read threads on here about parents dressing their young daughters as bridesmaids because they're offended that they weren't chosen, and it's occurred to me I'm not really sure what the difference between a child's party dress and a bridesmaid dress is! I'm guessing it's fine because it's blue rather than white, but I just wanted to make sure.

It looks like a bridesmaid dress to me

You absolutely cannot let your daughter wear that

How old is your daughter? As a guests dress that feels more like been part of the wedding party. Does your dad want to wear this?

no you know thats far too much like a bridesmaids dress find her a pretty but normal dress if shes not a bridesmaid at my daughters wedding a friend of hers had dressed her girls in almost identical dress to my grandaughters who were bridesmaids and almost everyone commented on it

Total wannabe bridesmaid outfit grin

Funnily enough I just showed it to her and she said “cinderella” and I didn’t say it to her beforehand.

It’s abit much.

I probably wouldn’t put my daughter in that for a wedding. It’s a bit Disney princess.

Oh god OP, don't, you'll make a fool of yourself dressing her in that!

That’s not a party dress. That’s a mini ball gown.

It’s awful! And is also a bridesmaid dress. How old us your dd?

AnneLovesGilbert Tue 22-Oct-19 20:42:13

Nooooo. It looks like a dress up outfit, bot suitable at all.

Janaih Tue 22-Oct-19 20:42:41

no. have you got her a tiara to go with it? grin

DramaAlpaca Tue 22-Oct-19 20:42:56

No, it's too bridesmaidy.

Way too OTT. It looks like a Cinderella fancy dress costume.

BigFatLiar Tue 22-Oct-19 20:43:25

@iwantavuvezela - I think it would be even more out of place if her dad was to wear it.

What if... thoughts would stop me! You presumably don't know what colour the bridesmaids are wearing. You don't know whether their style is simpler. I agree with PP saying choose something special but not shouting occasion at everyone. A print would be safe. You don't want her mistaken for one of the wedding party, after all.

Save that level of special for when she is a bridesmaid.

Theresnobslikeshowbs Tue 22-Oct-19 20:44:58

OTT!! That’s bridesmaid material! Please don’t put her in this!!

CAG12 Tue 22-Oct-19 20:45:15

How old is she? Id allow this for a young girl but no older

Lightsabre Tue 22-Oct-19 20:45:23

Fine if she's 6 years old but too fussy otherwise.

MarshaBradyo Tue 22-Oct-19 20:45:28

How old is she? It’s a bit much

DDiva Tue 22-Oct-19 20:45:36

I would go for something with a pattern to look less like a bridesmaid
