Glad you had such a good reaction to it! My husbands cousins both wore white flows dresses to my wedding but I figured they probably didn’t know you weren’t meant to do it so I got over it pretty quick hahahaha on the day I was just happy to be married 🙂

@MrsBeck:  This gets me thinking… As of now whenever I hear about women wearing white to a wedding (especially long and/or lace gowns) all I can think is “Oh Hell NO!” haha. So perhaps I would actually react as you did – not even notice. I guess in life there are many things you think you know how you will react to it, but until it happens you never know exactly how you will react – whether positive or negative. Smile

@MrsBeck:  Would you have noticed or would it have made a difference if the girl wasn’t someone you knew and liked?

I was a BM in a wedding last year where the bride was LIVID that a girl was wearing a white satiny dress to the wedding.  (Where does one find a white satiny dress that is NOT a wedding dress anyway???)  It was a date of one of the groom’s friends.  The bride wanted to throw her out of the wedding!

I wore an ivory dress and the top of my MIL’s dress was ivory while the bottom was black. Ehhh. /: Not much I can do now, though.

i wore a cream colored short dress to my cousins wedding but the dress had a nice black border print at the bottom it had black straps under the ruced boddice there was a black band and i wore a black bolero so it offset the dress and was not totaly white i asked many people if they thought it would be rude but the said since the dress had plenty of black in it i was ok.

@MrsBeck:  i have no idea if she is clue less or what.. she didnt speak to me at my wedding or at the memorial. i was hearing she was engaged through members of the family squeeling in joy… really the wrong type of setting to be doing that… most of the family were all focused on her …

The last wedding I was at, three women wore white. Not white with a pattern, pure white. No one noticed, no one cared.

I accidentally wore white to my cousins wedding(more of an off white and it was short and more “clubby”) and it was the only dress that fit me then. And she told my aunt to tell me that since I did that she was wearing her wedding dress to my wedding! Lol I was like ok? She’s gonna be the one looking a fool then! And I was tempted to dress my bridesmaids in white to spite her! L

Haha, I’m not even wearing white to my OWN wedding so I don’t think I’d care 😉 My dress is pale yellow!

I’m glad to hear you had such a wonderful time that nothing could faze you! 🙂
