Am I being unreasonable?

AIBU

I think it depends if you'll wear a jacket/hat/bag. In all honesty whenever I've gone to a wedding I've avoided white completely just to be on the safe side.

It's a lovely dress though!!x

It's lovely and personally I think it's fine. Others will be along to say no although I've never seen a polka dot bride myself.

I like it, but is there nothing out there that's non white that you could choose instead? I just think it's someone's wedding and not worth the risk of any bad feeling on the day (even if it is unreasonable!).

Don't wear a white dress to a wedding. It's just bad etiquette.

Even with the pattern, I just think you don't wear white to a wedding personally. There's so many other colours to choose from, why pick white? I know others will disagree though because the dress obviously doesn't look "bridal".

I think it's fine, different if it was plain white but it's not. I like it

Wear a black jacket and accessories and it will be fine.

I think it's absolutely fine! It's a nice dress, perfectly wedding appropriate, and I wouldn't think twice if I saw someone in it. The idea that white is offensive at a wedding seems so old fashioned! If you are at all worried that the bride might be sensitive about these things then you could ask her....

It's lovely but I think it is too white for a wedding

I think it’s probably fine but it is very long and therefore a bit bridal aside from the colour.

I think that it's obviously got polka dots on so not totally white, but is very long and wide skirted (both of which I'd personally avoid!).


Tbh if you're questioning the dress, my instinct would be don't wear it.

No way is it bridal - if you are really not sure ask the bride. Perhaps bright coloured or pastel accessories or black as others have mentioned would change it, no way you would be mistaken for the bride in my view.

I think this dress is far too simple, something you might wear on holiday. I don't personally mind it being white as it's nowhere like a wedding dress especially with the polka dots but think it's far too simple and I would imagine you wearing a bikini underneath heading to the beach.

I wore polka dots for my wedding. 🤷‍♀️

I love it though I’m a huge fan of spots! Love just bought a new sporty bag.

Go for it.

I couldn’t have cared less who wore white to my wedding, then again, I had a gold dress 😂😂😂

It's a lovely dress, but for an afternoon party or something else. It's really not suitable for the wedding. It's not about you it's about the bride. Just don't wear white.

Too white for my liking, does it come in a different colour?

Lovely dress but I wouldn’t wear it as a wedding guest - even with the obvious black polka dots it’s long and white so risks putting the bride’s nose out of joint.

It’s long and white so I’d say no for a wedding and it also looks more like a holiday sun dress than an occasion dress. If you’re going away this summer I’d buy it for that but I’d find something else for the wedding!

Do you already own the dress or are you looking to buy it?

If you already have it then I think it could work for a wedding with right (non white!) accessories

If you are looking to buy a dress specifically for the wedding then I wouldn't personally choose a white one when there are so may other options to choose from
