From Me:

Again, sellers, don't put "wedding" in unless you can document it was a wedding gown. White does not mean wedding - I've mentioned before that I wore a white lace dress to my prom, does that mean it's a wedding gown? I certainly hope not! /facepalm

The sleeves, the way the bodice has that one piece extending towards the right, the length, and even the neckline are all very much mid Teen's fashion, not Edwardian.
