I wouldn’t have a problem wearing red to a wedding. Seriously it is something a guest is wearing. As long as she doesn’t look to revealing then who cares what your guests are wearing. If a bride doesn’t want people to wear certain colors then they should include that in the invite and see how well that goes over.

The only time it would bother me is if it were a very revealing red dress… otherwise no big deal!

I really didn’t care what others wore to my wedding.

However, I question red as well… I have this very nice red dress, but never wear it to weddings because I find it’s very sexy and I don’t want to take away any part of the spotlight… not that anyone looks at someone else than the bride, but still… I wouldn’t want to be the girl who looks like she’s trying to steal the moment.

No red to a funeral no white to a wedding…that is the general rule. But now a days people do all kinds of things.

i dont have a problem with red,  or white for that matter,  cos its obvious who the bride is….(i wouldnt wear white to someone elses wedding, but it wouldnt bother me if they wore white to mine) 

….the only thing i would have a problem with was if a man wore a black tie……that says funeral to me.

I’m the kind of person who wouldn’t care about the color of the dress, only the style.
I wouldn’t care about white, black, red, puice, failing to match decor etc.
The only thing that would bother me would be style. I’d rather have a guest wearing a beautiful white formal dress than a blue club-hoppin’, too short, too low, too little, too much skin type of frock.
As long as their outfit matches the casualness or noncasualness of the event, I don’t care beyond that point.

I have a western garden ceremony and a chinese night reception. Didn’t set a dress code for it at all.

Nobody wore white to the ceremony but noticed a friend and elder lady wear red to both. Night reception I saw them wear red too but didn’t bother me that much as I had the traditional beaded chinese gown and then the wedding dress after it so to everybody, it was clear who the bride was.

Now its my turn, I have a full length red dress I didn’t get a chance to wear at my wedding reception because of time restraints, I have a wedding coming up with a black tie dress code, its a church ceremony and a function centre reception.

I am considering wearing my orange toned red dress to both but it doesn’t seem like a good idea especially with the church ceremony.

I really don’t see why not. I have worn a red dress to a wedding before and have seen other people wear it at weddings I’ve been too. Why is it even a thing, wear what you want as long as it’s not the bride or bridesmaids colours imo.

I wouldn’t mind if guests wore red, but I dont like red at all. My mom chose a red gown for my wedding for herself, and I hate it. But it looks great on her and it makes her happy so I’m fine with it
