    I think either one is fine, though I’d personally put a pashmina with it–the cardigan would look sort of awkward, imo.

    I think the pashmina is cute but that’s a lot of white going on there…

    There were a few guests at our wedding that wore bold-colored dresses and white or cream sweaters. I wasn’t offended at all as the bride!

    I had a ton of guests wear white sweaters, and I didn’t really think abou it until this thread. The sweater is totally fine, pashmina…not so much

    I agree, I think it’s a bit too much white.  What about a colored pashmina or cardigan? A hot pink, yellow, teal, or red would look really pretty with that dress, and be really bright and cheerful, in my opinion!

    I wore a white cardigan to two weddings last year, and never even considered that it could be considered an etiquette boo boo until I read this thread!  Oops!  But seriously, I tink there’s a big difference between wearing a white dress, and a white cardigan with a coloured dress underneath.  People aren’t going to look at you in your black dress and white cardigan and confuse you with the bride.

    I think the pashmina is definately too much if it is in white.
