@laeuba:  Could your fiance maybe say something to her? That dress is definitely not bridal, I actually think it’s pretty ugly.. But I still think out of courtesy she could find something else. You’re being so sweet about the whole thing!

Oh, that sucks. Is there any way someone else in the family could bring it up? Maybe they just don’t know the rules?

I don’t think that dress is even close to being mistaken for a wedding dress, I wouldn’t say anything.

i have actually been shocked at the amount of people wearing white at the past few weddings i’ve been to. I dont think its cool to do that… i’m sure they had no intention of trying to upstage the bride & had no idea it was such a no-no. still not cool. SOMEONE NEEDS TO EDUCATE THESE PEOPLE!!! Have a mutual fb friend send out a PSA about appropriate wedding guest attire lol hmmm i might have to do that myself….

@laeuba:  Cheers to you for being so adult about it!  I would hate if someone did that too, but I weigh it with I’m not in charge of what other people wear.

@laeuba:  Yes, it sounds like she honestly didn’t know. It’s unfortunate, but many people are uneducated on Etiquette.

My problem with the dress is not really the color, because there is black on the top.  It’s not not really wedding appropriate, especially for a sibling’s wedding.

I was at a wedding this summer where a guest wore a tight lace white dress. Everyone sorta looked at her like “What in the hell are you thinking?” Not only was it was white… it was super trashy looking.

Aww, you’re sweet! Now I’m worrying that some rude (“honest”) person will come up to her AT the wedding and say something to embarass her.

@laeuba:  It’s an odd choice for a winter wedding nless you’re in the tropics of course.  I don’t think anyone’s going to be confusing her for the bride.
