White is less and less associated with the wedding ceremony as well as maxi dresses - with a magnificent celebration. Today, matrimonial attributes of this kind are just another option for those who choose what to wear. A good illustration is the spring Batsheva show, in which a model in a "wedding" dress with a torn veil and crimson markers had fun on stage, singing Courtney Love songs. In our selection - ten snow-white dresses that can be worn anywhere (including a wedding).

The retro cut and cuddly cream color make this dress a must-have when you have ten minutes to pack (familiar story?). Add bright mules, a baguette to it, tie a silk scarf around your hair and meet the day (or night) with dignity.

Mesh, lace and embroidery - in fact, this dress is made from recycled polyester. More and more companies - including among the mass market - are thinking about how to curb overproduction. Collections made from recycled plastics, polyester and other materials that have received a second life are produced by Mango, H&M and Other Stories.
The Swedish mass market also has real wedding dresses (lots of lace, long train, closed shoulders), but we like the cocktail version made of light viscose. The dress has an interesting hem - elongated at the back and gathered in light waves. Walking in the parks will probably not be maxi-length, but for those looking for an option for parties and meeting with friends, it will come in handy.
Mango relies on functionality: a white dress with an asymmetrical hem and wide sleeves is suitable for an outdoor celebration (the midi length allows you to wear it with comfortable sneakers) and for a business meeting in the city. In the second case, a light jacket or oversized raincoat will not hurt.
The intricately tailored dress with slits and voluminous sleeves (the cuffs resemble calla flowers) has only one drawback - the outrageous price. But if you're up to the big splash and are looking for a versatile piece that will save you both at the dress code party and at your little sister's wedding, check out the Loewe Cotton Linen Midi. The soft and lightweight material will save you in the heat, and the intricate cut will interest those around you.
Simon Port Jacquemus continues to explore the relaxed lifestyle of the south of France. Following the very wide-brimmed hats that the designer showed last spring, a white dress with ruffles on the chest and a plunging neckline at the back is in danger of becoming a hit this season.
The Vampire's Wife
We bet Suzy Cave was very serious about calling her own brand that way. We applaud not only the designer's sense of humor, but also the delicate taste - all The Vampire’s Wife dresses can be presented both at the balls of Victorian Britain and at the funniest dances.
An apron dress with lush ruffles is a real transformer: in summer it will perform perfectly as a solo, and with the first breezes of the autumn wind, it will perfectly make friends with a thin cashmere turtleneck in a peach or deep blue shade.
A translucent linen dress is good for many reasons: firstly, it is a material suitable for the heat, secondly, the belt at the waist allows you to wear it in several ways, and thirdly, everyone will definitely like the universal shade.
A simple cotton model with a Victorian collar and wide elastic sleeves that add solemnity. The Boohoo website offers not just fast fashion, but very fast fashion, so you cannot count on excellent quality, but the price of the dress pleases even in the last week before the salary.
