    I think that a bit more info would be helpful…

    what is the dress code for the wedding? are they close/family of the bride ot groom?

    are you thinking of doing this or did something like this happen to you?

    Is the wedding black tie?  If not.. a tux is not appropriate.

    We had a formal wedding. One of our guests wore a tux and his wife wore a very nice gown. They looked great.

    I honestly wouldn’t care.  Champagne really isn’t a white dress.  I will say, that if you are having a casual back yard BBQ, it would make these guests look a little goofy, but it’s not like anyone is going to judge you for the guest’s attire that you can’t control.

    um? I would be happy. But my wedding is black tie. And I am in white.. no one is going to confuse any guests for the bride, they all know whos wedding they are attending. I know the whole taboo about wearing white, but I did know brides could claim a whole color family lol

    depends on how formal the wedding is.. If it is not a black tie affair then I would say thats not the time or place for their dress.

    If they wore that to a rustic barn wedding I would think it was extremely strange. If they wore it to a black tie affair I would think that they followed the dress code.

    I think it would be a bit much and a little odd on the part of the guests. But, not knowing how formal the wedding is or much else I can’t really say much more than that.

    I can’t vote because I really think it would depend on the style of the wedding. If a couple had worn those outfits to my wedding, I wouldn’t have minded at all.

    In my family, that is pretty typical attire for a wedding.  I can understand being upset (maybe) if someone walks in wearing a huge white ballgown, but champagne and white are very different colors and I see nothing wrong with that

    I wouldn’t care… but my wedding is “casual-dressy” for the beach, so I would also laugh at them behind thier backs.

    I can’t tell by your post if you think these outfits are overdressed or you’re offended that the women is wearing champagne? Either way, if it’s bothering you say something now. Better than stewing & being pissed when it happens.

    I know I wouldn’t want that at my wedding because it’s going to be casual.  I mean, the guys are wearing tuxes, but that’s as formal as we’re getting.  I wouldn’t want any of my guests to wear tuxes/gowns because I’d just feel embarrassed for them. 

    Maybe have your fiance talk to his sister and let her know that it’s not black-tie so it’s unnecessary for her husband to wear a tux.  I don’t see what’s wrong with a champagne dress, though, as long as it’s not an elaborate gown.

    I could care less what anyone else is wearing. Well maybe if a woman showed up in a wedding dress i would be mad. But, it is your day and none of those things should matter on it.
