ok so my sister just showed me a picture of a dress shes thinking of getting for our wedding. It’s ivory. Plain ivory with a little bit of gold stitching and pearls beaded on it. I was a little shocked. She only asked would the ivory clash with my white dress for photos. Its a family only wedding of about 30 ppl including kids, and about 10 of those are women. So i mean its not as if theres a big group to blend in. I just think its funny out of allllllll the colours to pick I would never dream of picking a plain dress in that colour for a wedding, whether it was a close family wedding or not.
So heres for a poll, would you consider wearing a plain cream, white or ivory dress as a wedding guest?

No, I would never wear any shade of white to a wedding.

Nope. Not worth the side-eye

Damn I can’t seem to add a poll for some reason.

Bettyboo1982: No, I wouldn’t. A few people wore ivory to ours, and I did find it a bit weird, and it was commented on by quite a few people (how inappropriate it was etc). Out of respect for the couple, and because I wouldn’t want to be THAT guest I personally would always avoid white/ivory/cream. There are plenty of other colours after all lol

Absolutely not. I don’t need that kind of social ostracism in my life!

Not a chance, unless it was the only dress that wasn’t ruined after my house was blown away in a hurricane and the wedding was the next day….

Never! This is the brides (your) day and you should try to allow the bride to stand out! I have this whitish dress (really it looks like a really light grey). And I’ve always avoided wearing it for weddings, even though it’s a pretty perfect dress to wear to attend someones wedding. The colour is too close to white, I’d feel bad.

Nope. Not unless it’s was actually asked of me for some reason.
We had one person wear a while dress to our wedding – FI’s 14 yr old cousin. I think it might have been the only dress she owned since a month or so later she wore the same dress to a funeral. Neither event was appropriate for a white dress but I don’t blame her since she’s young and not even the one buying her clothes.

No because I have a couple of dresses to choose from for weddings/formal events and none of them are any of those colors and I wouldn’t purchase a new outfit just for someone’s wedding. However, I really don’t see the big deal if someone wants to wear those colors to a wedding; I certainly didn’t care when it came to my wedding.

No because my momma taught me better.

I personally wouldn’t, but have been to tons of weddings were almost half the women wore white or ivory. People wore white to my wedding, I could care less, it’s just a dress. I think the dress she picked is beautiful and would have no problem with someone wearing that to my wedding. Especially with such a tiny wedding noone’s going to mistake the bride.
