Uuuum, not ok.  I don’t want anyone wearing white at my wedding except me and my flower girl.  I would not have chosen that, she’s a crazy girl!  Lol.

Major etiquette no no! Their bm dresses even look whiter than the brides!

I love the way that looks…..I wouldn’t have ever thought about it…I’m wearing ivory and I wouldn’t mind my girls being in white white…

Whatever floats your boat… I would never do that but it was their weddings.

Wow…I don’t think it’s a no-no (at least for me) just because it’s the bride’s color (and the bride’s day) but more because it makes for so.much.white.  I don’t like it even though the dresses are super cute.

I think the white dresses give a really clean, crisp, elegant look to the wedding party. I prefer the short bridesmaid dresses though  because the long ones look too much like the brides dress.

I would rather be the only one in white. But to each her own!

I actually think it looks really cute. On the last episode of 4 Weddings on TLC there was a bride who had her wedding on a tiki cruise boat and had EVERYONE wear white. I was expecting her to come out in a red gown but she wore white too. Not my personal taste but it worked for them.

The first one and the third one look pretty good. The bride stands out enough and the effect is quite nice. The middle one however is IMO awful. They all look lik ethe bride! Maybe the key to having BMs in white is to make sure that their dresses are knee length.

I think this can be really nice… if you do it right.  If the bridesmaid dresses are shorter and simpler, and the bride’s dress is a formal wedding dress, then there really isn’t any question as to who is the one getting married.  In some of these pictures though I had a hard time figuring out which one was the bride.  That’s a no-no for me.

I think it’s really pretty but it kinda makes me think of a sorority event or something (the long ones at least).

I REALLY love the last one where the bride’s in white and the maids are in a creamy color. That is just gorgeous.

It’s not really an etiquette thing if the bride asks them to wear white! Better than a random guest wearing white! P Diddy party anyone?

I actually really liked the idea of my bridesmaids wearing ivory along with me but my then-FI and sister vetoed it.

I like it! I think it does lend to a crisp look. My running gag with myself is “no one is going to wear white to the wedding…not even me!” since my dress is gold. Lately I’ve been tinkering around with the idea of having the BMs in cream since I’m wearing gold and obviously everyone will know I’m the bride. If I were to do it (and I just may) I’d make sure the BMs all had vibrant colored bouquets. I would also go with a shorter length though because I like the look.
