Ignore her.  You can wear whatever color you’d like.  =) It is your wedding.

That’s a very old-fashioned and outdated “rule,” and you should just tell her that if she were in tune with the times she would know that.

I wore white when I got married at 32. Thankfully no one said anything since they knew it was my first wedding. I would have just said I didn’t realize there was an age requirement. Perhaps there was some jealousy there?

Aren’t you a little old to making catty comments like that?  I mean…its not like you are in middle school anymore.

Wow, some people have no filter. It’s horrible, but more for them than for you. After all, they embarrassed themselves. It does make for a good piece of office gossip, if there is anyone you can share that with.

We had one person ask a pregnant coworker if she wasn’t a bit too old to have a baby, and another one asked her if the baby was planned. This still makes for a good chuckle in my closer circle of work friends.

Seriously, just laugh it off. Your coworker is an idiot.

My thoughts are that she is a major b*tch.

Honestly, I’d just stay away from her…who needs that kind of negativity?

@BooRadley:  also, THIS!

“Oh did you wear white?”

If she says “yes” say, “OMG, I’m so sorry you got married at 18. That’s so young, it must have been so hard to adjust to being married at that age. I just can’t imagine all the work and responsibility of a wedding and being a wife when you’re still a teenager. I certainly wasn’t ready at that age, thank GOD I didn’t have to get married before I was ready.”

If she says “no” say, “Oh, did someone tell you that you were too old too? Well that’s a shame. You know, the ability to wear white is not contingent on the bride’s age, at all. You know, traditionally it was meant to indicate a bride’s virginity, as was the veil. But really, those rules are observed by very few people. Most people understand that a bride wants to look and feel like a bride and it’s no one’s business what she’s done in the bedroom. What do you expect me to wear if not white? Gray? It’s not a funeral.”

And if she’s not married just say, “No, but you are.”

Oh please! You could wear white when you’re 60, or red when you’re 20, it’s about what you want to wear. Sheesh!
