Daytime Wedding

Hello lovelies,

Do I hear wedding bells? Yes, with summer comes wedding season and beautiful white dresses that we all want to wear all day, every day… But is it against the rules to be a wedding guest and wear a white dress? After all white and ivory are reserved for the bride and it is her day to shine. If you know the bride is more traditional I would recommend that you opt out of white and choose a pretty dress in a different color – blush is beautiful and still going strong this season, yellow is always cheerful and another great color for a summer day wedding, and mint green is soft and sophisticated – just to list a few.

However, if you know your bride is not one to care for the rules and has chosen a more contemporary approach to her wedding, then perhaps you can step into your white dress and enjoy her special day! Here are a few rules to help you make the right choice:

  1. Would the bride be in white or ivory?
  2. Do you know the bride well enough to ask her what she thinks of you white dress?
  3. Does your white dress look like something you would wear to your wedding shower?
  4. Is your dress made from lace, tulle, or any other fabric that resembles a wedding gown?
  5. Is your dress floor-length?

If you answer to questions 1, 3, 4, and 5 was “YES”, then think twice. If your answer to 2 was “YES”, then take a photo of your dress and share it with the bride.

Should you have decided to be wear white, theย White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress by Metisu is pure PERFECTION!! Why do I think so:

  1. The crew neckline keeps it classy as you are not showing any cleavage.ootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress, Nordstrom Sale, Wedding Dress, Wedding Guestootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress, Sam Edelman Clutch, BCBG Shoes, Polaroid Sunglasses, Wedding
  2. The see-trough elements add just enough visual interest without being inappropriate at all. ootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress Polaroid, BCBG Shoes, Polaroid Glasses, Sam Edelman Bag
  3. The midi length is stylish yet classy.
  4. The flounce hem is very feminine and romantic. ootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Detail, Midi Dress, BCBG Peep Toesootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress, Wedding, Raymond Weil, Sam Edelman, Nordstrom Sale
  5. The line of the dress is so elegant and sophisticated.ootd_in_style METISU White Midi Dress, Sam Edelman, BCBG, Raymond Weil, Polaroid, Wedding
  6. This dress does not need jewelry – it speaks for itself. All you can add are some pearl earrings and a ring.
  7. The lace is not floral in pattern and hence does not resemble a bridal dress lace fabric.ootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress Detail, Wedding, Nordstrom Saleootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress, Nordstrom Saleootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress, Wedding, Nordstrom Sale, Polaroid Round Sunglasses
  8. It pairs up perfectly with any bag – depending on the occasion! I chose this Sam Edelman navy and grey clutch with a silver chain as the rest of my jewels were silver.ย ootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress, Nordstrom Sale, Wedding, Sam Edelman Clutch, BCBG Shoes
  9. It is easy to put together with any heels! I chose a pair of BCBG peep toes in a navy, green, grey and white print, one I believe a bride would not wear with her wedding dress (in an effort not to look bridal.) This pair also matched up the clutch rounding off my accessories nicely.ย  ootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress BCBG Peet Toes, Weddingootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress, Nordstrom Sale, Polaroid Round Sunglassesootd_in_style METISU White Hollow Out Flounce Hem Midi Dress (11)
