It would be lovely for a casual summer wedding but I don't think it would do if it is a formal affair. The cut of the top and the stripes limit how much it can be dressed up, as does the fabric (I imagine it is some kind of cotton).

I agree. If this is a casual wedding, like a backyard BBQ, then I think you could wear it (it's a very cute dress!) But this wouldn't be dressy enough for most weddings, in my experience.

I agree with others.  A white cardigan, or even a white jacket, would dress this up.  Add jewelry and it would be a great summer wedding dress.

I only have one other question.  Does it come in my size?  ;)  It's really cute and now want one.

Thanks everyone for your input,
by the time the wedding comes I might even have been able to ask the MOB or the bride herself just to be sure, and have plenty of time to find a white something.

Sorry, the dress is at least a couple years old from Sinequanone (they're at least present in France, not sure about the rest of the world) so your best bet would be to keep an eye on summer dresses from a designer that would do this kind of things where you live, it might come back 'in style'.

What is a "game day shirt."

DH and I collect interesting tee shirts, including college and professional sports team shirts. I never thought about whether there were any "rules" about wearing such shirts until after I ventured into a college team shop while traveling in a western state last September. The team was playing a game that night. The store was jammed. I overheard more than one conversation/argument/fight about getting a game day shirt vs another kind of shirt.  I didn't think much of it at the time but later I wondered about it.

DH is my go to person about all things sports related but he didn't have any idea what I was talking about.

So, is a game day shirt a recognizable thing, different from other team shirts? Is one only supposed to wear a GDS on a game day? Are there any other taboos about wearing team shirts in general?

Let's say it's a big rivalry game, the Steelers are playing the Ravens.  On the day of the game, let's say it's tomorrow, you'll see shirts plastered with "STEELERS VS RAVENS, 01-10-14".  That would be a game day shirt.

The strange thing about these is how they have to make two versions - one for Team A winning and one for Team B winning.  And then half of them end up getting donated to a third-world country somewhere because they're factually wrong.

A lot of game day shirts don't specify a winner, they just announce the contest.  I have a few Super Bowl game days that just show what year and who played.  Mostly they're meant as a souvenir of the event as much as a team spirit thing.

Thanks for the game day shirt information.  I've seen shirts like this but never knew what they were called.

DH commented on this after the BIG game this past week. There will be a lot of blue and orange  shirts from across the state being donated.

Is it possible to get nail polish out of clothes, or should I just resign myself to a Polluck-y look now, before I get too frustrated? (Okay, it's a series of three drops, but rather vivid green on my lilac pj's.)

The ones sold in advance are like that. But for really big championships, they do make 2 different victory shirts, and the correct ones get sold, and the others go to those in need of clothing in other countries.

Nail polish remover. Unless your pjs are pure silk or the like.

That's true, but those sorts of things aren't usually called game day shirts.

Also, we have a list of colors on the season calendar for our college football team. All black is "blackout", sometimes they request certain sections wear black and some wear gold or all gold.

Usually for nationally televised games.

Nail polish remover. Unless your pjs are pure silk or the like.
Try it on a hidden seam or hem first.  Nail polish remover will disolve some man-made fabrics and remove dye from others.
