Is this too white for a wedding guest?

After seeing discussion on this on another thread I'm worried this dress I've bought is now too 'white'- I thought the floral pattern made it ok, but maybe not... What do you think?

No from me too

Lovely and totally fine for a wedding.

Too white

Drbrowns Tue 04-May-21 21:13:51

I think it’s lovely. Pink shoes and pink bag and it’ll fab. Definitely not too white

Too white, definitely not acceptable.

Don't do it, it's bridal.

Totally perfect for a wedding, especially with some colourful accessories! It’s gorgeous - I might get it for my son’s christening!

I wouldn’t wear it to a wedding.

Depends. With coloured (not ivory/cream) accessories it might be ok. Also if you take a jacket (or similar) if it's cold, don't make it a cream one.

Yes too white. Not for a guest at wedding.

Palavah Tue 04-May-21 21:16:13

Hmm. How are you accessorising it?

Scarby9 Tue 04-May-21 21:16:14

It is beautiful.
Pink accesories will bring out the pink rather than the white for the wedding.

MadisonAvenue Tue 04-May-21 21:16:25

I think it’s fine. As already suggested, accesorise it with pink - or green even - and it’ll look lovely.

I've never seen a bride in anything that resembles this style. Hobbs are promoting for wedding guest wear.

Perfect for a wedding with coloured hat/fascinator and bag and shoes

Not appropriate for a wedding - too white. All the people saying it would be fine don't really know how the bride would feel so best to err on the side of caution imo.

I think it's lovely for a wedding, not bridal at all.

Pancakeorcrepe Tue 04-May-21 21:17:42

It is too white and too bridal. It’s a lovely dress but don’t wear it as a wedding guest.

Too white for a wedding

Lelophants Tue 04-May-21 21:18:24

Absolutely no way. Don't rock the boat! Always. Stay. Away.

ThatIsMyPotato Tue 04-May-21 21:18:28

It's nice but there are just so many other dresses out there. If you choose that one someone will comment.

FreekStar Tue 04-May-21 21:18:30

I was going for pale pink accessories- no jacket- maybe a hat too.

Sorry you cant wear that, it definitely has a bridal feel...
