Chances are, if your party is anything like others I’ve been to the bride will have a veil, stupid hat or another identifying outfit. So even though the Maid/Matron of Honor is in white, there will be no mistaking who the bride-to-be is.

i think the white thing really relates to weddings, not every single function..

personally every bachelorette party i’ve been to the bridesmaids wear black, and the bride wears either white or a color.  I’d check into that first, or at least see what the bride plans to wear.

I don’t think there is any specific ettiquette regarding the bachelorette party, and any bride that would get upset over that is verging on bridezilla territory.

@boopie2012:  lol wow I totally misunderstood!  But personally, when I was a bride, I wouldn’t have wanted my Maid/Matron of Honor to wear white.  Call me childish and selfish if you want, but i was the bride 😛  If you feel that way as well I’d either tell her, or have another bridesmaid tell her that its kind of weird. If you personally don’t care, then I agree that its a non-issue.

I believe the white for brides only applies to brides on the day of the wedding ceremony.  Brides wearing white on thier wedding day is used to symbolize purity and virginity, two things women don’t usually go for at their bachlorette party lol  I’ve never heard of brides wearing white to their bachlorette party, but if it bothers you maybe you could discuss it with your friend?

So she showed you what she had planned on wearing, thats your chance to ask her not to…She isn’t doing anything wrong wanting to wear something she likes, its not your wedding day yet, and even wanting to dictate what your girls wear for all your events is quite rude.

If it bothers you then tell her.

Personally, I wouldn’t have really cared. My bachelorette looked like any other girls night out so unless we actually told people that it was a special occasion, they had no idea.  There’s not enough alcohol on the planet that would get me to rock a “bride-to-be” sash or cheapo veil.
