my bachelorette is this weekend and the girls are all going over what they’re wearing for our night out. One of my bridesmaids says she’s wearing a champagne dress. I think nothing of it. I don’t care what anyone wears. I’m wearing red. My Maid/Matron of Honor did ask me if I wanted everyone to coordinate colors (that’s pretty standard around here) and I said no, everyone can wear what they want. Well, when she found out my other bridesmaid is wearing champagne she lost her mind! “What’s wrong with her?! How can she think that’s ok?! That’s so rude!” I told her I didn’t care and she was shocked. She told me I should care because everyone will assume she’s the bride. What do you think? Am I wrong? Should I care?

No, I think your friend is being over the top. If she’s really worried about the other girl wearing champagne, she can get you a veil or a sash or a button.
Imo, she’s making a big deal out of nothing, and if the bride doesn’t care, she shouldn’t either.

You are right not to care.

Good grief, not a big deal AT ALL, I wore pink to my bachelorette party and everyone else was wearing whatever they wanted.
If the bride doesn’t care, no one else should. Really. If it’s that important you be recognized as the bride to be, then like PP said, she can get you a sash or tiara or something.

I knew it!! And I’m pretty sure she DID get me a sash. And I’m not the “center of attention” kind of woman anyway so it’s not a big deal to me. Thanks guys! I genuinely had no idea which one of us was just crazy

It would not go well if a bride posted: “bachelorette crisis!! My bridesmaid wants to wear champagne to my bachelorette party… CHAMPAGNE!!! Everyone will think SHE’S the bride and not me!! Halp!!”

hahaha that’s so true. My wedding dress is champagne and it never even dawned on me to think of it in terms of upstaging. Maybe I’d be pissed if it was my wedding day (I’m on the side of not wearing white or champagne to weddings out of respect) but this is just a bachelorette. Although I suppose this reaction makes sense coming from her. She’s not married so I’m thinking she’s going to be one of those “look at me” brides for every little event. Ho hum. I’m just gonna tell her to get over it

Champagne isn’t white. No one you will meet out and about knows what your wedding color is. This is pure crazy.

I voted wrong. I clicked “She’s being rude” thinking I was talking about your Maid/Matron of Honor and not champagne girl.

You’re the bride. If you don’t care what color anyone wears, I don’t see why anyone else should. I think your friend is starting unnecessary drama.

Well isn’t this just the silliest thing I’ve seen all day!
Your Maid/Matron of Honor is being ridiculous

Champagne IS a sketchy color. But you are 100% right to not care. If you don’t care, then no one else in the entire world should care. Your maid of honor is nutso.
