I’m going to an engagement party tonight for one of FI’s coworkers and I just realized that I’m wearing a cream/white wrap sweater.
I’ve got on a black skirt and black boots with it, but is it bad to show up to an engagement party wearing white?
Do I need to run out somewhere and buy a new shirt before the party?

I think that you’ll be fine.

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 think it might be weird if you were wearing all white. But you are not lol I think that is totally fine!

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

Thanks all! I feel much better. Don’t get me wrong, I love an excuse to go shopping but not under a time crunch.
I didn’t even think about it this morning. Just put on this sweater because it is nice and I had an event after work.
Then as I was browsing the boards today I saw a post about wearing white to a wedding as a guest and had a mini panic attack thinking, “Should I not wear white to any wedding related events either?”
Thanks for helping me with my neuroses. I never thought this much about things until I became a “bride to be” myself.

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 🙂
