is this dress too "white" to wear to a wedding?




ok, i need your advice.  i know a wedding guest is *never* supposed to wear white to a wedding, but is champagne ok??  i bought this dress from armour sans anquish on etsy, and i *love* it, so i'm sure i can wear it another time, but is it ok to wear to a wedding?  thoughts?  i bought the cute headband from fascinating creations on etsy.

and how much do we love the upcycled fashions of armour sans anquish?  if you don't know about them, they are awesome, they take existing clothing and upcycle them into fab new fashions.  they have a blog, too.

It's gorgeous! And not too white at all. Of course, I wouldn't be offended if someone showed up in champagne, but I know some people are a bit touchier. I guess it depends on your friend.

I agree w/Rachel. Wear it dude; it's pretty!

I love it! By the way, two people wore white to our wedding. One woman wore a white suit and another woman wore a white dress. I don't think anyone mistook them for the brides :)

Its lovely and I think it would be fine to wear to a wedding. My mother is wearing a similar color dress to my wedding, and I think she'll look great in it. Also, I'd be thrilled if a guest wore a fun hair piece like that! We're getting married in a garden and I'm encouraging the gals to wear garden party hats if they're so inclined.

It's gorgeous!

We were at a wedding at the weekend where a guest was wearing a backless white see through lace mini dress. I was a little surprised but no one else seemed to mind!
