@lovin_iswhatigot:  I agree…I had thought about doing an all white wedding, but I definitely think that’s your special day to be the only one wearing white and standing out. Plus I want my Fiance to be wowed (which I’m sure he will anyway) but I don’t want to just blend into the crowd with all my bridesmaids

I wouldn’t, it’s not my thing. One of my friends is talking about it though, she’s pretty convinced she’ll outshine them no matter what haha.

It used to be a thing didn’t it? I thought bridesmaid used to wear white until we decided to go all colourful and fun? I’m not quite sure though..

@lalalyanne:  Yeah I think back in days of yore the bridesmaids even dressed the same as the bride to fool the ‘evil spirits’. I’ve seen quite a few weddings with bridesmaids in white dresses lately (I think Pippa MIddleton started a new trend) and I often think it looks pretty but it’s not for me personally.

@lovin_iswhatigot:  I like it.  It looks cohesive and elegant.  Plus, it shows that the bride and groom are confident enough not to worry that their bridal party will “outshine” them.

I am OBSESSED with bridesmaids in white/ivory – I think it’s beautiful and looks stunning in photos! It can help if they are shorter or more distinct than the example you posted above, but I can’t help it, I’m smitten. Laughing

A few of my faves:

I think if I was a guest there’d be no confusing the BMs with the brides. (I have been to a wedding with cream Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, though not white that I can remember). It’s not what I would do. But if the bride and groom like it, who cares what we think?

A bride on here recently had her bridesmaids in white or cream or something similar. She looked so amazing I cant imagine any of her guests would confuse her and her pictures were some of the nicest I’ve seen on here. It was a nice surprise…

@lovin_iswhatigot:  I’m not against the idea in theory, but in this case I like the bridesmaid dresses better than the wedding gown. When they’re all the same color, you can’t hell but compare them.

Off-topic: Love the menswear in the OP!

Although they look white, the bridesmaids’ dresses were actually ivory. It is not unusual in some countries for the bridal party to wear white. This tradtion in no way originated with Pippa.

I don’t think anyone would have trouble knowing which one was the bride.
