    goingtotherooftopoflove: It won’t let me vote, I’ll come back and try again. A guest wore a white dress and long jacket and a hat and d’ya know what I didn’t give a thought to ‘you can’t wear white etc’ thing until I looked at photos as like you say there was no mistaking the bride.

    yes- 2 girls wore white dresses. it didnt bother me (i only noticed in pictures), but I wouldnt personally wear white because it obviously bothers some. 

    Trust me- there are too many things going on on that day to notice what someone chose to wear

    My husband’s cousin wore a cream colored lace dress. I didn’t care at all and she’s in all the family photos standing near to me. Nobody mentioned it either. Then again nobody I know acts crazy over someone wearing white to a wedding so that could be why….

    i honestly don’t know or remember if any other guests had on white/ivory/cream/etc

    I don’t remember anyone in white… looking at pictures some have on printed dresses with some white, but it’s not much.

    I wouldn’t have done anything. Unless it was a floor length white gown I doubt I would have noticed! They’d look like the rude ones to everyone else, so there wouldn’t be a need for me to do anything. What, throw them out?

    My MIL wore a white dress. I invited her to go shopping together to find one, but instead the next day she went shopping on her own and bought the white dress. She sent a picture of it to my then FI. Without even asked me, he just told her that people weren’t supposed to wear white besides the bride and asked if she could find a dress that was a little darker. She flipped out saying that wasn’t a rule. They got in a big fight over it and didn’t talk for several days. The words “that’s bullshit, I just won’t come to the wedding then” were thrown around. I never talked to her about the dress, but I eventually told her that if that is what she wanted to wear to the wedding then she could decide for herself what to wear because I didn’t like to see her fight with my DH. I had no idea what she was going to show up wearing, but she wore the dress and it didn’t hurt anybody. The dress itself didn’t really bother me much, but her attitude about it all really upset me. She sounds totally nuts, but we actually get along really well and I love her now. She told me it was hard for her to have another woman come into her sons life and “take her place” but she knew I loved her son and would always take good care of him and that she loved me like her own. We’ve had a great relationship ever since! I was worried for a while though!

    I’m a wedding photographer so I have seen it ALL in the way of guest attire. I’m always shocked at what some people think is appropriate to wear to weddings. Not just white, but just some choices in general. Like the women who show up in heels & moms who come in panty hose to a beach beach wedding. Yeah, not functional.

    I think the worst was a girl who wore a skin tight white mini dress as a guest to a wedding. Her date wore baggy and sagging khaki pants w/ a polo shirt (untucked) and skater tennis shoes. They were a collective hot mess.

    My wedding is in less than two months and I honestly don’t mind what people wear. Its a double wedding anyway so I won’t be the only bride and the only one in white. My brother is marrying his beautiful fiance and she will look amazing. I know I won’t even be ‘the prettiest bride’ on the day. Shock, horror. This girl is a sweetheart and a knock out and I am just happy to share the day with them both. I think it will be lovely.

    I honestly don’t remember, and wouldn’t have cared either.
