I found a cute, white sundress to wear for my bridal shower in a few weeks. I bought it two months ago with my mom and Maid/Matron of Honor. Well today, my Maid/Matron of Honor texted me a pic of the dress she’s going to wear to my shower. It doesn’t look very similar to mine, but it’s a white sundress as well. I was kind of taken aback because I thought traditionally only the bride wore white. Would you be annoyed, or am I overreacting?

Overreacting! It’s your shower and with it being summer, white is a popular option as you know. You get one day to be the only (let’s hope) person wearing a white dress to your party.
Now if she wore white to your wedding AND was standing next to you during the ceremony, THAT’d be a different story.
Let it go and enjoy your shower!

KristenD9: I wouldn’t think much of it, honestly. It’s the bridal shower, not your wedding. But I also don’t even mind people wearing white to weddings, so take my opinion with a gain of salt!

KristenD9: Eh, it could be a little annoying, especially since she was there when you picked out yours, but the shower isn’t really that big of a deal as far as a “bride wearing white event”. Everyone their knows it’s your shower and who the bride is.
At worst, people will side-eye the Maid/Matron of Honor, at best, no one will notice.

I’d just let it go. In my opinion it’s a bit of a faux pas on her side, but not that big of a deal. The reality is that white is just really in right now. I’m sure it didn’t even cross her mind that it would be better to wear another colour.
It’s alwasy best to be gracious in this situation.

KristenD9: Overreacting. Its a shower, not the actual day and i doubt anyone would notice that she too was wearing white.

KristenD9: I wouldn’t be annoyed, but neither do I think you are overreacting. You didn’t say you were upset or falling apart at the seams, you just said you were taken aback.
Now that you have had some time, I’m sure it’s not such a big deal. It would have been generous and thougtful of her to choose something else, but life goes on.

The only time you can claim sole ownership of the color white is on your wedding day. I just went to a bridal shower where multiple guests, including the bride, wore white.

I guarantee when you sit down and are the center of attention at the shower, no one will mistake her for the bride. White is in a lot of people’s wardrobes. Especially for summer. There are bigger things in life to worry about–this is nothing. 🙂

I’ll admit it. I would be a bit annoyed but I would never say anything or let it get to me enough to complain out loud about it. It IS summer and there is so much white out right now.

KristenD9: Yeah, it’s a tad obnoxious! Thankfully you’ll be choosing what she wears to the wedding lol!

Overreacting. It is just the shower.

I wouldn’t be annoyed, but then again I wouldn’t be annoyed if someone wore a wedding dress to my wedding. I guess it just comes down to what you want to let yourself get stressed out about.

If you have to ask, you’re overreacting.
