This is a spin-off of another post, but now I am wondering what people think is NOT acceptable to wear to someone else’s wedding. Obviously a guest wearing white is a huge no-no, but what about ivory, champagne, etc? What do you think?

I’m in the boat that I don’t think it matters what a guest wears. As long as it’s not a wedding dress, they’re fine. I think it’s silly when people freak out about it.

I personally just think white is a no no colour to wear to a wedding

When I am attending someone else’s wedding I stay away from black, whites/ivory, and red. When it came to my own wedding I really didn’t care what people wore.

And by that, I mean only that color. I’ve seen sundresses that are a white base with a colored pattern. That’s totally fine. But I would never ever ever wear my pure white Easter sundress to a wedding.

Obviously no all white/ivory dresses. I personally don’t like all black either but I know that’s not really reasonable.

I’m pretty sure I would be fine with a guest wearing whatever color they choose. If they feel like wearing white, good for them… No one will be mistaking her for the bride.

@Brideonabudgetlauren: +1, if they show up looking stupid, they’re the ones that have to wear the outfit all night. Plus it makes for hilarious pictures.

I observe the “No White” rule, unless someone is having a wedding in the god damned desert or something…I am not going to have sweat running down my ass so she can feel special! Other than that, as long as it’s not a gunner for a wedding gown, it’s game on, color is irrelevant.

Just white/ivory in my opinion. I don’t know why others react so strongly to red or black.

As long as a guest doesn’t wear a white/ivory gown that looks like a wedding dress, I don’t see an issue. I’d not care if a guest wore a white sundress to my wedding.
Having said that, I would not wear an all white or ivory dress to a wedding because I know it bothers some people (especially MOBs and GOBs). I”d also not wear black for the same reason. Although I have a really cute white dress and several nice black ones, it is not exactly a hardship for me to think to wear something else. So I always try to play it safe.

Any shade of white should be off limits. I know they say if you wear red to a wedding you want to sleep with the groom lol

@Sea_Ashley: I’m guessign this is a spin off of my post. I always said – there’s a difference between an all-white dress, and a white dress with obvious floral or some that fluid-other colors highlights.
Same with red – different if its solid red, versus red and black,etc.
@MsSparklyBee: I’ll have to remember to find a source for that one. 🙂 At least it will keep me laughing.

Personally, I don’t think there are any colors that are off limits. No one is looking at the other guests. Even if someone is wearing a white dress, no one is going to mistake them for the bride.
