FG...... you shouldn't wear white to a wedding full stop!

However, you only need to smile your gorgeous smile, walk tall and be proud... you'll look great!

Also plain white doesn't really suit the colouring of many people regardless of size or style. I've worn a white or cream jacket over a patterned fddress though but then cut is everything.

I think white is ok, but ONLY if you wear a hat that isn't white iyswim!

I think the 'don't wear white' thing is surely a bit dated now, I wouldn't worry tbh. I would hae bright, or black, accessories though but not cos I'd be wrried about offending the bride, only because it might look as if you are actually trying to BE the bride if you have a white hat/ bag/ shoes etc....

I would go for it, I think it's a really nice look. I just would say make sure it fits really well, ie suggests the curves rather than hugging them - maybe buy an 18 even though you're a 16, to ensure you don't get the too tight look.

I think it sounds a lovely outfit, so don't rethink, go for it!
