I wouldn’t worry about her wearing white to anything besides the wedding. I wore a white dress with very light blue lines on it to a bridal shower when I was a Maid/Matron of Honor. It didn’t even cross my mind that it would be innappropriate, nor am I concerned about what people wear to these types of events now that I’m the bride.

There is no etiquette surrounding what people wear to a bachelorette party because there is not a typically colour that the bride wears.

Do you care if she wears white?

Were you planning on wearing white?

The only time people shouldn’t wear white is to a wedding!!!

I would say no, that is kinda rude. Maybe you can wear a little party veil so you really stand out as the bride Kinda lame she is doing that, but it is only bacheloretter party,so I wouldn’t get too worked up about it, plus if she does it to get attention, it will only be negative 🙂

I wouldn’t worry too much about this.  I have a white/ivory dress in my closet that I would love to wear to a bachelorette party!

I don’t think it’s inappropriate but if you do speak up.

It’s not the wedding day, so nothing to stress about.  She might look awkward to other guests since it’s not her shower, but I’d just let her wear what she wants and move on.

I don’t there’s anything wrong with it! The wedding day is the only day you get dibs on the color white!

I’m going to have to say that anyone can wear anything to the bachelorette party.  You don’t get a monopoly on white for everything.

I don not think it is a matter of etiquette, but if you wanted to wear ivory/white to stand out as the bride, just tell her that you were planning on doing so, and ask if maybe there is another dress she is considering? Make sure she knows she doesn’t HAVE to change anything, just that you had an idea that you’d be the one in white, and see how she responds.  She prob didn’t even think of it, and I’m sure it will be fine 🙂

I don’t think there’s anything you can say that wouldn’t come off as bridezilla-ish.  The only reason you and any guest at the shower or bachelorette party would need to adjust wardrobe would be if by some freak accident, you found out you’d both purchased the exact same dress , and we ladies are just going to have to learn to sort that out for any social occasion. 

No one is going to steal anyone’s thunder.
