just curious how many of you did or didnt (or will or wont) go with white for your shower attire. i currently am coveting a royal blue dress with white detailing but one of my bridesmaids said it wasnt bridal enough. i planned to wear white to the reherasal because i found a lovely dress that i wanted and happened to be white, but i didnt realize i was ruining everyone’s life going non-white for the shower.
why did you go with the color you did?

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?

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 love to share!
this is the dress i want to wear (i already ordered it):
FWIW, this is a very similar color to my wedding color
I also really like this dress. it was sold out when i ordered my blue dress, but it’s back now. i am thinking it might be more appropriate? but then i have to buy another dress…. first world problems, i know…

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!)

@mrswhitemtn: i wear dresses everyday but i have had to steer clear of a few i loved because they were too dressy for work and couldnt ever be worn to a wedding. i am more worried about spills because i am a hot mess like that

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 🙂 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 🙁 I ended up finding this gorgeous mint dress with deep purple flowers all over that i LOVE! So I am wearing that 🙂
Def going to be wearing white for the bachelorette and rehearsal dinner!! 🙂

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.
