Very pretty. I feel that would be fine as MOG dress. But you should check with the bride to see if she says okay.

Lisa, the dress is beautiful. Does it compliment the wedding colors or will it clash for group pictures. Are the attendants wearing the same length. I have been the MOG 3 times and this is what was told to me if you are following wedding etiquette guidelines. The MOB picks her dress style and color first then the MOG. If hers is a tea length dress then yours should be also, same goes if she chooses a long one. Have a wonderful memorable time!

If the bride likes it, you're totally okay. The dress is beautiful and I know you will be too! Congrats to all!
