That a coloured pattern on a white background is ok for a wedding?

Summer wedding in Italy. I don't want sweaty polyester.


I feel there should be some kind of international agreement on this issue.

I would think so.

Then again, I'm planning off white trousers with a coloured top for a wedding next week, so maybe not the best person to ask...

taybert Mon 03-Apr-17 14:30:42

I wouldn't bat an eyelid if someone wore it to my wedding but then I've been surprised at responses on similar threads in the past.

Op that dress is perfect, what way are you going to style it? I like a fascinator but I hear they are frowned on round these parts grin

LorLorr2 Mon 03-Apr-17 14:38:51

Could you bring a sheer airy sort of shrug/cover-up in navy (or any colour) so you aren't a vision in white if you do get second thoughts while you're out there?
I just always like to give myself back-up haha.
Lovely dress, can imagine it in the Italian heat!

Well, I was thinking I might go for an actual blue hat which may also shade my face from the blistering sun since it's outside in the early afternoon..... I'm also going to need something covering my arms if I am to keep any skin on them so I'll go for blue rather than white.

I think it's too white for a wedding sorry

mummypig14 Mon 03-Apr-17 14:49:38

Too white imo

LorLorr2 Mon 03-Apr-17 14:51:48

That sounds lovely.

I imagine something like these except lighter blue to match the flowers on the dress

Maudlinmaud Mon 03-Apr-17 14:54:38

Oh yes a blue hat would be amazing. I really like the bow detail on the back.

TondelayaDellaVentamiglia Mon 03-Apr-17 14:55:26

I don't think there is quite enough pattern on the front needs to be more flowers/blue (like the back!)

however I am not up on Italian wedding etiquette so it might be alright.

Thatextrainch Mon 03-Apr-17 14:57:41

I also think it's a bit too white for a wedding

SwedishEdith Mon 03-Apr-17 15:05:05

Would this be better?

Nicotina Mon 03-Apr-17 15:10:40

Someone wore similar at my wedding. They looked great. And so did I!

taybert Mon 03-Apr-17 15:20:50

Yeah, I saw the other one but it's a more casual print and I prefer the print on the first one. I'm thinking maybe it could be one where the position of the print is different on each dress so I might order it and see how it looks in the flesh.

robinia Mon 03-Apr-17 15:23:59

It looks beautiful and I do think there is enough pattern on it. Accessorise carefully and it will be perfect.

taybert Mon 03-Apr-17 15:40:26

I'll leave the veil at home wink

SpookyPotato Mon 03-Apr-17 15:42:04

I think that's totally fine, not wedding dressy at all.

SpookyPotato Mon 03-Apr-17 15:42:34

But yeah a navy hat and accessories would look good!

gaaahhhh Mon 03-Apr-17 15:44:50

I wouldn't ever risk wearing white to someone's wedding personally. It's a lovely dress tho.

gaaahhhh Mon 03-Apr-17 15:45:45

Actually if I was going to that psycho Welsh wedding that there has been a couple of threads about I might wear white to that one!!😂

wineoclockthanks Mon 03-Apr-17 17:13:43

Lorlorr where are those from please? I've been looking for something similar

Laska5772 Mon 03-Apr-17 19:16:45

I think the other day people were saying this mainly white dress was fine for a wedding, so I reckon your original choice should be also - its lovely BTW

taybert Mon 03-Apr-17 20:22:36

DH says too white. And I actually have to go with him. And he knows the couple better than me. Dammit.

hahahaIdontgetit Mon 03-Apr-17 20:25:16

It's a beautiful dress and not remotely bridal. It's perfect for an Italian wedding.
