Is this too white for a wedding?

I love this, but just a bit anxious in case it's too white for a wedding? More bothered about the back than the front.
I know the standard answer is if you have to ask, the answer's probably no, but would appreciate thoughts anyway!

I'd say yes too white but I'm a traditionalist.

I think it could be mistaken for a wedding dress, if that s what you are asking, but think it would be OK, with coloured shoes, jacket/cardy/wrap and non-wedding jewellery.

Back view is very bridal

Thanks, the back is what really bothered me and as the bride is one who may be easily offended, I think I'll give it a wide berth.
Thanks for the sense check!

Depends - if the bride is likely to go for a full-on long, train etc type dress then personally I'd say you're fine.
Just make sure accessories are coloured.

Just read your last post - if bride easily offended then maybe best err on side of safety!

It's a great dress. But it and keep it for another occasion.

It's too white.

It looks like something a registry office bride may choose. Back to the drawing board.
