There’s clearly been a lot of Bees that would be upset or offended by wearing white on the wedding day, if you’ve read any previous posts. And of course, no one should use your wedding day to propose. But you can’t TELL people how to behave. It’s incredibly insulting.

For example, you can’t invite someone out to dinner but say ‘I would love to have you there, but you need to dress in a way that I feel is appropriate and you need to behave in this way.’ There’s a 99.9% chance that they wouldn’t have even thought of doing those things, but you’ve just insulted all of your guests by insinuating that they cannot behave in an acceptable manner without instruction from you.

hunziebo0:  holy hell, tacky, white, “wedding style” and distracting at the same time.  You gotta love a dress that seems both too short and too long at the same time.  I’m sorry.

audrey_lane:  haha yes. I was so mad that people kept thinking she was the bride particularly because my dress looked nothing like that! To make matters worse she stuck around my husband the whole day too! Ofcourse I politely greeted her etc, as I did not want to embarrass or humiliate her in public. It turns out she had a bit of a crush on my husband back in the day according to the best man.

OkieHeart:  yes I do agree. This was really just the last straw on the day though. One of my BM’s (I have 5) were late for hair and makeup and decided to wait for me to call her and ask where she was before she tells me she couldnt make it to the wedding. In my culture, 4 is a bad luck number and represents death, so that meant I had to either drop a bridesmaid or find one last minute that would fit the dress! Also the photographer/videographer was extremely late, not to mention my parents invited too many guests (that brought us 100 people OVER max capacity for the room) so we had to do a last minute room change the day before the wedding which brought us 20,000 over our budget (due to last minute changes and additions to menus etc). The page boy also arrived late and missed the ceremony. 

We got all that sorted though so that was okay… then imagine when I see this girl turn up dressed the way she was and clinging to my husband all day! At least it’s over now, but boy I could’ve slapped the bitch

I think people wearing white is super rude. Like, no, no one is going to mistake them for the bride. But they DAMN well know it is rude, and do it naywas? I would probably say something. And, I would 100% colour their dresses in a beige or taupe colour for my photos- either have the photographer photoshop them or hell send those pics to me and I will do it for free for you lol. One of my good guy friends decided to wear an all white tux and blue dress shirt. Like… wtf???
