Just saw your edit. That dress is lighter in feel than the original one for sure. Still, black seems better if it's an evening event.

yeah I'm not sure I will have time to change. I know it will go into the evening but I assume the ceremony is mid afternoonish. I just remembered there is a slit on the side of it that comes to about mid-thigh. hmm, perhaps too racy? It's some sort of poly-jersey blend I think which could get hot. Then again it's one shouldered so....hmm....

bump...

I have a beach wedding next month and I have no idea what to wear. I'm not a beach girl. I go to the beach 2-3 times in the summer and slather on spf 60 sunscreen. I guess wearing black would be a bad move?

I really like this dress but it's white! I can't wear white right?

Any suggestions? No tropical florals please.

I don't see why you shouldn't, it's a beach wedding. The dress comes in black too if you're more comfortable in black. Either way, go with simple jewellery if any

^ I think she's invoking the "Only the bride wears white" rule I dunno, I'm not an etiquette expert, but the dress is so unbridal that it seems like it would be OK. Black w/b fine too if the couple knows you're enthusiastic about the wedding.

hmmm... maybe black would be the wrong statement, because I'm kind of indifferent about the wedding! :p

What other colours could I wear other than white or black that would be beach-wedding appropriate but not make me feel like a walking popsicle?

you shouldn't really wear white if the bride is wearing white...
and i wouldn't go with black at a beach wedding...
the dress itself is really pretty, i would try to find something similar, maybe in a pastel hue like peach, pink or mint...

Well, in my family no one wears white at their wedding, so that may be why I don't see a problem with guests wearing white I don't think anyone in my family have gotten married in a church for 40 years either...I might be lost, I should leave this thread But seriously, so what if some of the guests wear white? What's the problem? I don't see it

There's this whole bridezilla, queen for a day thing The guests must not compete. But this dress is so low-key ... basically the deal is that someone at the wedding could be snarky about it or take it the wrong way because of this "rule."

My sister's stepmother in law and SIL both wore black to her wedding. Originally it was considered rude because it's the color of mourning. Supposedly it's fine now to wear your LBD, but I took it as possibly a statement (and not without reason I might add). So there you go

Damn I forgot about the bridezilla-thing...maybe because I've never been to a wedding, everyone I know gets it done when they finally remember that they should get married (after having 2-3 kids) And then they go home or go to work.

I so want to be a bridezilla! I guess that's the only day you're allowed to be a mean diva Too bad for me that I can't get married in a church, apparantly you're not welcome if you're not baptized

But still, I think Acne's dresses are pretty good for a beach wedding. I didn't know they did anything but jeans until I bought the infamous skirt...

^ Agree, I like the beachy, sheety quality ...

Bridezilla wannabe Here, it depends on the church ... I'm sure I could find someplace here where you could get married. But could well be different there ...
