This poll is JUST FOR FUN, as someone wearing white is the least of my worries today.
Anyway, last night, my mom told me that my aunt told her that my cousin’s gf is wearing a white dress to my wedding today. Per above, IT’S NOT A BIG DEAL TO ME. But my mom said that my aunt told her that the gf was saying how she really wanted to look nice and tried really hard to find something nice. I don’t really know her, I’ve met her like three times. But I still can’t imagine a 25 year old doesn’t know not to wear white to a wedding!
So I’m wondering – could she really NOT have known this rule? Or is she being rude on purpose?
PS – Please don’t think this is my biggest concern today; I’m just interested in hearing what you ladies think.

I would have to assume she doesn’t know any better, the alternative is so unbecoming a young lady….I know you don’t care, but she might…I would imagine more than a few of your guests would raise a brow or two at her attire and she might be a embarrassed.

CONGRATS YOUR GETTING MARRIED TODAY!!!!!
She may not really know. To my suprise I have met a lot of people that don’t know that there are any “rules” at all. I am stunned by some of the dosies that I have heard. I do think that it is sweet that she tried really hard to look good at your wedding.
ENJOY YOUR DAY LADY!!!!!

@Nona99: I hope she’s not embarrassed! She’s OOT, so she doesn’t have many options. Plus the wedding’s at 11 am today ha.

@redheadem: gosh, hope it goes ok….and she doesn’t get called on the carpet for it. I’d feel bad, it’s not like we get a book with all these rules inside….either way it’s a non issue, you get to be married! Yay!

Some people think the “no white” rule is out of date. It’s one of those things I didn’t care about (or indeed notice) but I don’t wear white to anyone else’s wedding just in case. I’m glad you’re not fussed.
Now get off the bee and enjoy your wedding day!!!

Doesn’t know any better. I didn’t know a lot of things wedding related before I came to this site.

Congratulations!!! I would assume she doesn’t know since she tried hard to find something. Which actually does seem inconceivable!

There’s a lot of people out there that don’t have a whole lot of nice clothes. Maybe the white was her only alternative to something that was either jeans or something skanky. My thoughts are she know wearing white is considered rude, but she also realizes it is less of all evils.

T-minus 1 hour. I’m sure she probably doesn’t know any better, or if she did and didn’t care, might get shamed into submission by other guests. No worries, not your problem 😉

I didn’t notice the white at all. She was wearing a long purple sweater, and it was like a gray dress with a white lace overlay so it wasn’t ALL white. I thought I’d check back in for those who were surely concerned.

My friend, who is 48, was helping her daughter pick out a dress to wear to a friend’s wedding. She suggested a white dress to her daughter, who is 20. Neither she, nor her daughter, knew they shouldn’t wear white to a wedding. I just happened to be with them that day, and I was the one who told them white was appropriate to wear to a wedding. That same friend also thought about wearing a white dress to her son’s wedding. I told her to check with her future DIL before she bought it…
So I think there are a lot of people who don’t know they shouldn’t wear white….
Of course, there are a lot of people who think they can’t even wear a print dress with a white background, which is completely okay… It’s solid white that shouldn’t be worn, and no a colored belt don’t not make it okay…the dress is still solid white.
