My brother’s girlfriend ended up wearing the same color dress as the bridesmaids to my sister’s wedding. It just looked like she matched my brother (a groomsman). My sister didn’t care at all, and I thought it was fine. Navy is a really common color, I’m sure you won’t be the only guest wearing it ๐Ÿ™‚ I’d wear your dress as planned!

alyssaash1:  wear it as planned.. It’s not a taboo color (like white) and it will be totally acceptable! Of cos unless you are concerned that if will make you look like a bridesmaid (if they wear blue)– otherwise it doesn’t matter

I’d whip some fun jewelry on and rock it out! Blue is such a common color anyway.

Go right ahead and wear it. Since her colors are such a secret, she can’t complain, and navy blue is safe as anything.

alyssaash1:  she has no right to be upset… She is keeping her wedding colors a secret. And if anything I think the only color she can claim ownership on for the day will be white. Anything else is a free market!! Rock that blue dress girl!

As I bride to be I def won’t mind someone dressing in my wedding colors.. It’s just a color.

I personally wouldn’t want to be the same colors as the BMs and if your fiance suggested going with a different dress (his fam) I’d most likely choose a different one. No need to cause drama when there doesn’t need to be.

The bridesmaid dresses may very well be in a totally differnet style, fabric, shade of blue than yours so I don’t think there’s any need to worry at all! I agree navy blue is such a common color there would be no need for anyone to be upset about you rocking your dress! ๐Ÿ™‚

You have every right to wear the dress. And normally, l would say wear the dress. However, this is FI’s family, so I say trust his advice. He knows the bride better than any of us and if he thinks it is a problem, it probably is. Family, especially in-law family, has enough potential for drama already. Avoid what you easily can in my opinion.

Also with regard to one of your wedding colors also being navy. I would preemptively take the high road. If anyone says anything about wedding colors, make it absolutely clear that you were very thrilled to learn that FI’s cousin choose the same color as you and you are beyond flattered.

alyssaash1:  Wear the dress. If she wants to keep all her plans under lock and key, she can’t be upset when someone shows up wearing one of her colors. That aside, navy blue is a super popular color right now and I would be suprised if even you weren’t only the guest to show up in it. Wear the dress. ๐Ÿ™‚
