BeeThereDoneThat:  I’ve never heard that before in my life. I chose on modesty and classic lines, not color….I just chose something that was appropriate and looked good, lol!

Meh. I wore jeans and a T-shirt, like usual, to meet my fiance’s family shortly after we started dating. Miraculously, they didn’t think less of me 😉

What?! That’s ridiculous. People take “etiquette” way too far sometimes!

BeeThereDoneThat:  Unless you are meeting them at funeral, I can’t imagine why a red dress would be inappropriate in this day and age. I’m pretty sure I was wearing a red tank top when I first met my in-laws and if they were shocked at my ettiquette breach, they hid it well.

Hmmm, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with a red dress, per se. However, it’s it’s a red dress that’s also tight and short then that might be a little inappropriate. But a red dress that is modest otherwise shouldn’t be a problem.

I didn’t even know there was a dress code etiquette for meeting in-laws!  Good thing they still like me otherwise haha.

There is no such etiquette rule. Wear what you like and what makes you feel comfortable and pretty. The most imporatnt thing to wear is your beautiful smile :-0
