Hi Bees – a quick question for you all. My mother suggested I wear a white dress to a Shower we’re both going to this weekend, but I’m worried it might not be appropriate to do so. Do you think it’s rude to wear a white party dress to someone else’s bridal shower?

I personally don’t think it’s rude. How many brides where white to their shower anyway? I wore yellow to one and blue to another. And none of the brides wore white at any of the other shower’s I’ve been to (or even seen on FB). I find the concept of the bride getting to claim the color white for all wedding events weird.

Nope I don’t think it rude. A lot of bridal showers happen in the spring/summer where white is popular color so I been to quite a few with multiple people wearing white. I don’t think it’s a big deal.

@ImDaCat: I have mixed feelings on this, but I personally think that if wearing white is going to call attention away from the bride then it is rude. If there are people there that are going to be upset that you wore white, I would not wear it.
@RunsWithBears: I wore white to all four of my showers. All of my friends that have been brides wore white to theirs as well. It might be a regional thing depending where you live though.

It’s not rude to wear white to a wedding. It is certainly not rude to wear white to a shower.
It is rude to try to upstage the guest of honour or hosts at ANY event.

i think i would skip it… we have a couple of weddings close to ours and im uber concious about “being a bride too” at their events. It is hard because when people see a bride, that’s the first thing they ask- hows the planning etc… i would wear something else just in case they are offended and be a wallflower as much as possible

Two people wore white my shower and one of them was my MOH! The horror.
I have only been to one shower where the bride wore white. I didn’t even know this was a thing before wedding bee.

I say no because I wouldn’t think it was rude. BUT, the bride or others may think it’s odd depending on the region and if it’s custom to wear white for your wedding related events. If she wears white because she’s the bride and she thinks it’s her thing, she may feel bummed.

Here’s the thing. Are you sure the bridal shower is for the other person? I have a sneaking suspcion that my Mom is planning a shower for me. I’m flying home to pick up my wedding dress and she was just trying to talk me into ‘wearing a cute dress’ to pick up my wedding dress…’maybe a little white summer dress’…she is so obvious. She also suggested I book an appointment early in the day to get my hair done??? whatever.

If the bride wants to wear white, I think that’s inappropriate. If she doesn’t care, go for it. I think I’ll rock the white at my wedding festivities so I would be a little miffed if someone else shod up in all white.
