I am SO proud of you for choosing not to freak out about it. Too many people would and it’s just not worth the stress. It’s impossible to control other people. Have a wonderful wedding!

That would be frustrating but totally not something to go crazy over. At least SMOG is wearing a blue top… which makes it a little better. IMO, anyone who goes to a wedding wearing a white or ivory dress is kinda going to make themselves look bad (in an etiquette kinda way). But I agree with PP… you’re handling it well!

It’s good you’re not freaking out about it, because it really isn’t an issue worth freaking out about.

IreneGoodnight:  Personally, I think you are being far too kind. How would they feel if you wore white to their wedding…?

You are so mature for not freaking out! Wow. Way more then me. I would have lost my mind! I guess in the long run in probably won’t matter and they are only making themselves look bad.

Am I the only one who saw this post and was made to think about a certain character from Final Fantasy, and wondered if he was supposed to have a slightly darker cousin? 😛

But anyways, I think it’s weird they decided to wear those colors without asking you first, but good for you for rolling with it 🙂

you have very fashion forward future mother in laws. Don’t worry, you can always tell who the bride is. I’ve been to weddings were other people also wear white and the bride ALWAYS stands out. Good for you for not letting it get to you. Your my insipiration for my futured walk down the isle 🙂

I commend your attitude but want to say to these women ” Have you not heard of the Internet?”

If they didn’t know the etiquette, I suggest that it should have been their responsibility to familiarize themselves with the guidlelines BEFORE purchasing their outfits.

IreneGoodnight:  I have to tell you you are handling this way better than I would. I think I would have had a cow. although it is close to the wedding and there is really nothing anyone can do now. they are going to be the ones that look bad for wearing white and or ivory not you. enjoy your day.

You are totally right that it’s not worth your stress! My MIL was showing me pictures of her wedding and her MIL wore white. We all laughed about it, but it wasn’t the end of the world. And now it’s a funny story. Enjoy these last few days and all the excitement. On your wedding day take the time to stop and really soak in what’s happening. It happens so fast it’s hard to take it all in. Enjoy every minute of it!!!

Yep, you have a great attitude. Not only are those dresses white… they are also both quite wedding dress-ish, in a certain way. If I saw people wearing either of those outfits to another person’s wedding I would be embarrassed for them!
