    You totally good, no worries! (honestly every shower I’ve been to, the bride typically wears colors.)

    I think you are fine.  I wore a cream dress to my engagement party.  But honestly, I can’t tell you if anyone else was wearing white because I just didn’t care that much about it to notice.

    I’ve never heard of it being a faux pas for guests to wear white at pre-wedding events.  You’re fine.

    I think it would be weird if it were ALL white, because then people might think you were the bride because some brides like to wear white or cream to their shower, but since its only a sweater, I think its ok 🙂
