Would it be? To a summer wedding? I don't seem to know any of the rules. shock

From Self-Portrait

Depends on the wedding. If it's v traditional wearing something with so many see through bits might raise eye brows but for something more informal/modern it might be fine. I'd chose one which isn't white though.

I would cats-bum sorry

WanderingTrolley1 Thu 28-May-15 15:13:22

Poor show, indeed.

Depends on the wedding (how formal it is, is the bride wearing white/cream or something else?) and also on how you were going to accessorise it.

Also think would make bad impression because white and see-through.

It is very pretty but too bridal party I think.

It's a bit trashy-looking, in my opinion, because of the see-through aspect. There's a shop near me that sells this kind of stuff, and it's so full of polyester I'd be amazed if they can get fire insurance.

Of course! Rules are simple, no white/ivory!

SkodaLabia Thu 28-May-15 15:27:00

I wouldn't care about the colour but it's see through!

PrivatePike Thu 28-May-15 15:27:24

It's a wedding in the South of France in the middle of July, by way of a little context.

I think the see-throughness and being white take it out of contention for a wedding...

EducateTogetheralumnus Thu 28-May-15 15:32:41

I would think it odd if you showed up in that. Sorry.

PrivatePike Thu 28-May-15 15:33:04

Ahh, it's not that see-through smile

PattiODoors Thu 28-May-15 15:37:58

Ah well if it's an ooh la la Frenchie wedding ye'll be grand.

Dixiebell Thu 28-May-15 15:38:09

I love it, where's it from?! I think it's perfect for a mediterranean wedding, but I know some people are a bit funny about wearing white. Another colour would be great though.

Dixiebell Thu 28-May-15 15:39:36

Sorry seen the link now...definitely get one of their other dresses though!

MrsCampbellBlack Thu 28-May-15 15:48:43

Oh I don't think it is trashy at all - I love self-portrait stuff. Selfridges pre-sale started today - they normally have a good range of self-portrait and I've seen a lot of red ones which are lovely.

PinkSparklyPussyCat Thu 28-May-15 15:51:10

It wouldn't have bothered me if someone wore it to my wedding but I know it bothers most people!

PrivatePike Thu 28-May-15 15:51:12

I just really wanted the summery, white, tennis player vibe blush

PrivatePike Thu 28-May-15 15:53:20

Yes, it's self-portrait! I have wanted one of their dresses for ages.

HermioneWeasley Thu 28-May-15 15:54:32

WTF is a tennis player vibe?

PrivatePike Thu 28-May-15 15:55:38

Ohh, you know
