Can you wear this to a wedding?

Or is it too bridal?

tulle skirt

Would probably wear with something like this metallic tee in navy

And dark peep toes. I love it, but not at the expense of being thought of as upstage-y.

Yes, it's only a white skirt, I was expecting something more meringue-y with an underskirt, I'd say it's fine.

It is very feminine and pretty, but it may look a wee bit too bridal, it would I guess depend on how traditional the wedding is.

If I was the bride I wouldn't bat an eyelid, but then I am planning to wear blues for our wedding.

It doesn't look at all bridal to me but I don't think I'm very good at this stuff.

I think it's gorgeous and not bridal, I would definitely wear it grin

It's poor form to wear anything cream/white and floaty to a wedding. The skirt is quite understated, but even so?

Must be 30K other skirts out there.

The skirt link doesn't work for me.

Thanks. It's not particularly formal - a hipster wedding, I would say. I wish I could find it in blue or grey or something!

I never understand why people want to wear white to weddings. However 'not bridal' it might be there are SO many other colours to chose from.

[[ This?]

Or is that too floaty?

Have been trying to find something I like for months. I'm crap at dresses and skirts.

I must admit I am not a fan of tulle anyway, and I still think that tulle on a guest at a wedding competes with the bride too much.

why not wear jeans? grin
I have to say I love the combination but I do think its pushing it for a wedding. However your link said the tee would be in navy but the link shows a cream one? A navy and cream combination with navy accessories wouldn't look too bridal I don't think.
Mind you I actually prefer the grey one in your second link and could see that working with more options after the wedding

The grey skirt is absolutely fine, imho. You'll be wearing it with a t-shirt and I don't think you'll look like a bride at all.

KatyPeary Thu 25-Jun-15 11:11:23

I wouldn't wear it. And I wouldn't wear the etsy one either. Far too bridal-y. In fact I wouldn't wear tulle at all. Like others have said, there is so much choice out there, why chose tulle.

And to throw a spanner in it, while I think tulle looks lovely on Pinterest and highly-styled magazine photos, I think it looks a bit silly on a real grown up (unless you're a bride or bridesmaid)

I do have visions of me wearing the skirt with a denim jacket after the wedding.

Not sure where though - possibly I could embarrass my children on the school run grin

I don't think its too bridal providing you wear it with something colorful but that tee shirt is all wrong. It's far too casual for a wedding and the overall effect with the skirt is too plain white/cream which does seem bad form even though the outfit itself is not very bridal.

goodnessgraciousgouda Thu 25-Jun-15 14:17:55

Unless the wedding is very VERY informal then I would say that the outfit is nowhere near dressy enough, regardless of the colour of the skirt.

I'd say white skirt (with COLOURFUL or DARK top) or tulle, but not both.

My rule of thumb is that if you feel you need to ask the question "is this too bridal" then don't wear it.
