Since I’m going to be wearing an ivory/champagne wedding dress, and I want to stick with mostly neutrals for the colors/bridal party, is it okay for them to wear white dresses? I think that’d look great and they all have skin tones where white would look really good! What do you think?
(Does anyone have PICS of the bride with a non-white dress and bridesmaids in white?)
Like this? Kind of?

I think that it is fine if they wear white, it is your wedding and you can really do what you wish. It is really common in the UK, look at the royal wedding they did it. I think if you want examples you might try googling UK weddings.

I think bridesmaids with white dresses just look stunning. The only thing I would say their dresses should be short if yours is long.

I did it. Sort of. In my culture, the family of the bride and groom dress up in the colors, and friends as bridesmaids are a newer thing to see at weddings, but most of the time they do not walk down the aisle and aren’t traditionally done. So I wanted the family, which to me was the most important people I was dressing in my culture, to wear white. In the end, the mothers refused because my mother in law is blonde and the color was not good for her, so I got my sister and my husband’s two sisters in white. I also ended up picking bridesmaids that are friends, though they did not walk down the aisle, and I figured since my mom and his were already wearing a different color than white, I might as well have them wear an accent color too. So we ended up with white on sisters, black on moms and navy on friends and it looked great (the men wore black ties, no bouttieneres because my husband didn’t want one). I love this look. I don’t care what people think of Kim Kardashian, I loved it at her wedding, and I think it’s great.

I don’t have pics but just wanted to say I love the idea and think it would look beautiful. As @tksjewelry said, check out UK weddings.

@spice_01: Yeah, I was definitely planning on their dresses being short and mine being floor length. Not because I think people would get confused on who the bride was, but I want that definitely difference in look.
I had no idea this was common in the UK! That’s really neat. I know most people IRL in the US find it odd to do that, but I couldn’t care less.

I saw a pic of a rainbow wedding where all the bridesmaids wore white and each girl had different colored shoes and bouquets. For me, I’d never put my girls in white, but seeing that pic made me think otherwise about the idea! It’s your wedding. . . you can do whatever you like!

Kate Moss’s wedding was like this…all her bridesmaids were girls but it’s an example of a bride in an ivory/oatmeal type color surrounded by attendants in white. I think it looks beautiful – very light and airy.
