    Not at all


    Maybe, depending on what it looks like

    I care to a certain extent—we’re paying tons of money to throw a classy event, so please don’t show up in jeans. Or clubbin’ clothes.

    Exactly what Gemstone said. No booty short, excessive cleavage, torn jeans or stained/holey t-shirts, among other things.

    Yes, ditto to Gem & Zippylef.  I think people should dress appropriately to what the affair calls for.  That doesn’t mean that all weddings will have the same dress code, but whatever the dress code is do that! If you are having a backyard bash, then white tie may look out of place, but if your having a formal wedding, leave the casual sundress at home!

    i’d be ok with my guest wearing white IF she didn’t know about the etiquette of not wearing white unless you are the bride. because if she knew and still does it, then she’s being really rude.

    i also care whether people dress properly. for example, really low cuts and mini skirts are not proper for wedding in my opinion. it’s about respecting the couple who’s getting married, not about showing off skin.

    As long as the clothing is occasion appropriate (like what zipplef & gemstone said), beyond that I don’t really mind. I know my dad loathes suits, and I don’t think my Future Father-In-Law even owns a suit, so I would be nonplussed to see both of them hanging out noshing cocktail weenies in ‘nice’ jeans & button down shirts.

    Now, if someone came say in a$$less chaps.. yeah then I might care… but I would probably be laughing “DUDE! Did you know that your butt is hanging out?!?!” bwahahaha.

    As for the wearing white thing, meh. I am not a big believer in ‘only the bride wears white’ etiquette, but that’s just me — to each their own, I would personally never wear white to someone else’s wedding unless requested to, because I know the opinion on the matter varies widely, but if someone were to wear a white dress or gown to our wedding it wouldn’t bother me.

    the only color i care about is white. i feel that the bride should be the only one to wear white at a wedding. any other color – go for it.

    i didn’t care about anything except my hubby’s yocal relatives wearing what they apparently think is appropriate wedding attire: short sleeved PLAID collared shirts, without the top button buttoned and undershirt showing, no tie, and wrinkled khaki pants.  i dont think anyone dressed like that… i honestly didnt notice, i only noticed at other weddings of his family members.  i was worried about it tho.  i think one of his cousins wore black jeans and black t-shirt… god damn it, Kentucky.

    My mom was curious as to what I want her to wear. I told her as long as she doesn’t wear the same thing I do, I don’t really care. Since my dress will be custom, I’m not really concerned about it.
