Perhaps you could make a quiet request to your photographer to avoid photographing her 😉

@FutureMrsT1221:  Just out of curiosity, why would someone wearing red to your wedding bother you? I’ve never really heard of that.

I mean, I personally REALLY don’t want people to wear black to my outdoor wedding in May, but I’m not going to tell them because it’s a weird personal quirk and they’re just…gonna. C’est la vie! But I was wondering if red is a similar personal preference for you or there’s just a rule about it I’ve never heard?

@gingerkitten:  Okay so Ive read some and not all so bear with me:

 

She asked you, she damn well knows this is going to piss you off. She asked you, and on voicing your concerns TWICE she reared her head and is willing to go to this extreme to convince you? Why is she SO set on this dress? She sounds like she doesn’t own it, so why all the fuss!

She is really pissing me off if you can’t tell and I would say it’s time to be blunt. “I am uncomfortable with you wearing that dress to the wedding. How you respond is up to you but I still believe it will look too pale in photographs.”

 

Now this has pretty much nothing to do with this,  but I have seen those above photos floating around before and I have to post this.

Notice the woman in a half-white dress, the woman in a pale dress infront of her, and the two women in white coats?

Probably not.

@PromiseRooster:  oh no, honestly nothing would offend me unless it was truly white! I just meant I wouldn’t think twice about pastel colors… like I would think red is more “attention grabbing” even though I still wouldn’t be offended by red, if that makes sense 🙂

@gingerkitten:  I don’t think she was asking if it would work BECAUSE of the color, but the dress in general being appropriate. I think she only mentioned the color so you wouldn’t shoot it down for looking lighter in a super crappy cellphone picture.
