    If it’s a pretty dress and fits the setting for your shower, then I say go for it!  Especially if you think it’s something you will wear again, you’ll get more wear out of it in a color. Don’t force yourself to get a white dress that you might not like as much! 

    Care to share the dress?

    @bostongirl27:  I am actually going to wear a coral dress (one of my wedding colors). Wear whatever you like!

    I’m not against wearing white to a shower, but I don’t think its necessary. I probably won’t wear white to any of mine…

    I wasn’t planning on wearing white but I found a really cute white dress and that’s the only place I could think to wear it.

    I’m actually wondering a similar question. I feel like I should wear white or at least something with a white accent? I’m glad it doesn’t seem like people thing white is a MUST! It’s a tough color to wear again (at least I think so because I seem to get most dressed up for other people’s weddings and I sure can’t wear white there!)

    I never even thought about wearing white to mine, it didn’t even cross my mind.  I don’t know, it’s not my style to wear white just because I’m the bride (unless it’s my wedding day). I mean, if I just happened to find a white dress I really liked but it wouldn’t have been intentional.

    Everyone still knew I was the bride ๐Ÿ™‚  and I wore a black dress with a sparkly gold cardigan over it, lol.

    I wanted so badly to wear white…my shower is in May 18th, and I really don’t get a deep tan until mid June. I tried on a bunch of white or off white dresses and I felt so blah! I felt like I was totally washed out ๐Ÿ™ I ended up finding this gorgeous mint dress with deep purple flowers all over that i LOVE! So I am wearing that ๐Ÿ™‚

    Def going to be wearing white for the bachelorette and rehearsal dinner!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I just wore a dress that I liked and felt beautiful in. Only wearing white felt too restrictive when it came time to shop.

    Alright my answer is no… not “as if!”

    Just wear something flattering, I don’t think it needs to scream “BRIDAL!”

    I considered wearing white, but I couldn’t find anything that really caught my eye. I had a mad hatter tea party themed shower, and my family included many bright colors in the decorations. I went along with it and wore a bright magenta/red dress. It worked in my favor because surprisingly A LOT of the guests wore white dresses.
