Simple question. The dress I'm interested in wearing is more of a cream with black detailing.

What say you?

I'm sure many will think it's fine, but I am a traditionalist and vote No. There is always some slight chance that someone (your co-worker, older boss, Great Aunt Marge - who knows?) will think it's inappropriate and it could give a bad impression. For weddings, I error on the safe side.

Agreed. Find another dress.

If you have to ask "is x appropriate for a wedding," I say the answer is no.

Don't do it, unless you know for a fact the bride is not wearing some form of white/cream. If she is, guaranteed someone will get their knickers in a bunch over it. Let the bride be the symbol of "purity and virginity" for the day.

I agree with the others. White is for the bride, why that color on all days?!! Wear it the day after the wedding or something.

i think the better phrasing would be should I , not can I and no I would not do it and everyone there might think that you are trying to outdo the bride .
