    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!!!!!

    @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    Some people think the “no white” rule is out of date.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 😉

    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.
