So I never really heard about the ‘no white at weddings’ thing until I started posting here. Now, I am feeling a bit paranoid about a dress I am going to wear for a wedding next week. Quick Bee opinion – is this ok? Does the No White rule typically apply ONLY to stark white or are any light, shimmery fabrics out? My dress is similar to these – sort of a shiny satin fabric in khaki/gold.
I know people have different feelings on the no white thing but I’d like to play it conservative here. This is my cousin whom I adore and the last thing I want to do is cause any chatter on her big day! If you would look twice at this at ALL, please let me know!

I think khaki is fine. Ivory or cream–it’s a case-by-case basis. But khaki is totally fine, especially with a colorful sash like this dress has.

Yup — not even close to white. Don’t worry! 🙂 I’d say anything that could remotely remotely pass for a bridal type dress, even a short casual destination wedding dress, is out. This one’s perfectly ok!

I think you’re safe! I keep only finding champagne MOB dresses which is awkward b/c my dress is champagne…le sigh. I think if it isn’t plain ivory or cream, or is the dress is a white base with a fair amount of print on it you’re usually good 🙂

I think it looks great!! Plus, I don’t really remember what anyone was wearing at the wedding- so they could have been wearing the same dress and I doubt I would have noticed or cared- I was on such my own high!

Whew, thanks so much ladies! Don’t have to do a frantic search for a new dress now!

Wait just a minute now, is that the actual dress in the actual color? That looks gray to me. If that’s the actual color, i say you are okay, but I would not want someone to wear a light khaki dress to my wedding. Fortunately thats not light khaki, it’s quite dark.

P.S. Rose, that’s very considerate of you to even ask for your cousin 🙂 My mom is actually wearing a dress with a white top and black bottom … I’m not letting it bother me I guess (It’s not toooo much white).
