My 18 year old brother brought his girlfriend to my wedding, I have never met her before. They were only staying for the ceremony since my brother seemed to think that going to prom after was more important. (Whatever). Well I didn’t even see them during the ceremony since I was getting married yay. Nor did they try to introduce her afterward, but used my ceremony decor as a photo op for her in her ridiculously white prom dress. Saw these pics on facebook the day after the wedding. It looks like a wedding party dress. So PISSED!!!! Enjoy this, since she is a minor faces have been removed.

Cut her some slack – its a prom dress – I had NO idea what the rules were about weddings when I was 17 either…

iits white (and pretty btw) but i wouldnt confuse it with a wedding dress. i guess they are about 17/18yrs old – i would give her a break, im guessing she was more excited about her prom than your wedding. geez

@mandypop: +1. I didn’t know about this rule until a month ago when I saw it on here. It’s not a big deal. Nobody confused her for the bride. She certainly didn’t upstage you.

@JustMarried51912: I agree with the PP cut her some slack she is a teen and prob doesnt know about weddings. I doubt really anyone cared or noticed since they only stayed for the ceremony.

I know that really sucks, but I’m not sure I would have known better at that age, either. Maybe she already had her prom dress purchased and didn’t realize it’s a faux pas. Before I went through the post-college wedding rounds, I was pretty clueless as to wedding etiquette because it was something I never really went through.

Normally I don’t think there’s any excuse for wearing white unless you’re the bride but that was her prom dress in which she was attending right after your wedding. In this case, I think you have to let it go. They were only there for the ceremony and then left. Should she have chosen a completely different prom dress just because she had to attend your wedding ceremony right before?

I wouldn’t blame age. I knew not to wear white to a wedding when I was a teenager. BUT, I definitely would have been more concerned about prom than my boyfriend’s sister’s wedding, so I probably would have either not gone to the wedding or worn the dress anyway.

Yeah, since it was her prom dress I don’t think its that big of a deal. Plus no one would mistake her for the bride.

@mandypop: +1. I’m sure this will be funny when this happens to me. Two of my cousins wore white to my sister’s wedding. Long formal dresses. These were full grown women too. They seem to do this in every wedding in our family. I’m sure mine won’t be any different.

im sure it kinda sucked but I dont think its that big of a deal.
Shes a teenager. They dont think much farther than themselves lol. Yes its white but the sash breaks it up well. It looks like a short promparty dress…. nothing wedding related.
Be happy for them. Im sure they were for you!
Prom is a big deal for most kids!!!! As weddings are for us! 😀

@UpstateCait: No I think she should’ve worn something different to the wedding, and changed into the dress after. And at least been respectful enough to introduce herself. By The Way she is a Junior and there is always next year for Senior Prom and she made my brother miss celebrating with his family. Everything about her just rubs me the wrong way.

@mandypop: Another +1. She doesn’t look like a bride, I wouldn’t stress about it. How about a positive recap instead!? Hope the rest of the wedding was amazing!

Hon, she’s 17 and headed to prom.
As mandypop put it, cut her some slack. Hell, cut yourself some slack!
