That *could* be a wedding dress- it’s never appropriate to wear white to a wedding unless the bride requests (like bridesmaids, etc.).

It’s a nice dress in theory – but like you, I think it’s a bit dodgy for guests to wear white when the bride is. Unless you make white part of your theme or you weren’t wearing white, no biggie!

Do you have any mutual friends that might be able to tactfully point out that it’s maybe not cool to wear white to a wedding? Maybe you could ask if it comes in any other colours? Good luck!

I like the idea of asking someone else to be the bad guy- “Mrsvbtobe” showed me the dress you were going to wear to her wedding…you KNOW you’re NOT supposed to wear white to a wedding, right?”

@rebwana:  yeah that way you’re not “bridezilla”, you’re diplomatic friend is letting white dress friend know they nearly made a faux pas. Maybe butter up dress friend with the idea of another colour. “hey, it’s a shame it doesn’t come in [blue/ green/ traffic cone orange ], you look so good in that colour!”

@Mrsvbtobe:  oops, you replied before me! That sounds like a good start – she what she responds with.

I wouldn’t wear that to a wedding but that’s me…do you think she’s “trying to get your goat” by telling about this dress?  I don’t normally send my wardrobe selections to my friends ahead of time though.

Sounds like you have a pretty good friend there!  Now to all the other panics of wedding planning! Wink
