    Cream dress to a wedding?

    Hi everyone, I was wondering if I could get a few of your opinions on this!

    I'm going to a friends wedding soon, and haven't really found a suitable dress to wear. All I've got at the moment is a cocktail dress that is black on top, and then cream from the bust line down to the hem. I don't think it looks like a wedding dress at all because it's quite short (knee length) and is about a third black. But I'm not sure if it's disrespectful to the bride because the dress still has a fair bit of cream on it. I've asked a few people and they think it's ok, but I'm still a bit unsure! Any thoughts on this?

    ETA: I've found a link to the dress, except mine has thin straps as well

    Haven't been to many weddings for quite a while but I know now they are wearing most anything. In my time, wearing black was considered very inappropriate but I don't think now it's that much of a deal. Although, I wouldn't do it but I don't like black and wouldn't wear it anyway. I guess it mostly depends on your type of friends, etc.

    I think you're fine, to me, the black bodice makes the difference. Cute dress!!! I agree with Grgranny, almost anything goes anymore. I would wear it if I were you.

    That sounds like a lovely dress and perfectly appropriate for the occasion. As long as you don't wear a veil, you will be fine!

    It's likely ok - as long as the bride is not wearing a cream bridal gown. You might want to check that out.

    How did I miss a thread about fashion? The one thing I actually know something about! It is fine to wear the dress you described provided its an evening wedding. The velvet top isn't appropriate for a daytime deal, but a black & cream cocktail dress is totally fine for a evening ceremony and reception. Also, those are old wive's notions about colors at weddings... as long as you look & feel good, you are always in fashion. Just be sure to wear dope shoes that are strappy - thereby not confusing you with a bridesmaid....

    (gosh, I feel so much better that I could contribute something worthwhile since CoP discussions make my eyes glaze over and all I can add is - "I think quads are cool! and Brian Joubert is hot!" over & over again...)

    first of all nice dress but mostly bridges are wearing in white gone not cream gone.Are you looking for a few easy steps to make money online? Maybe I must ask, if it really does take a few easy steps to making money on the internet    With all the hundreds of different ways to make money on the internet one can easily find yourself trapped in an overload of information which brings you to a point of confusion or indecisiveness.
