@mepayne:  I wouldnt have kicked her out (lol) but I might make rude comment to her about “how nice it was that we both matched!” But sometimes I dont know when to shut my mouth.

Yeah, I guess I’m just super laid back about stuff like this, but I feel like someone wearing a white dress to my wedding is such a silly thing to even get upset/angry over.

While it is a breach of western etiquette, I wouldn’t kick anyone out for wearing a long white dress. And I would honestly be more offended if someone showed up wearing jeans.

Ughhh i think there are too many other color shoices out there and white should never be worn to a wedding…..especially a floor length lace one……

@hollyberry4:  I don’t get when people get all uptight when someone wears white… unless it could be mistaken for a wedding dress. That long lace white one definitely sounds inappropriate.

I think there’s people out there that just have no idea that it’s seen as bad taste to do that, even though it doesn’t seem like a new tradition. I was worried about a friend of mine who wore white to my bridal shower that she would do that to the wedding (she doesn’t own many dresses) because she is more alternative hippy-ish and just wouldn’t be aware that you don’t do that.

I’ve been to 3 weddings recently and at every one there was one or more girls wearing a long white dress. I found it very odd, and my Fiance even commented about it. I think we’re pretty relaxed about that sort of thing here, and I doubt it bothered the brides, but I just find it so strange that when choosing an outfit these girls didn’t think that long-white-dress at a wedding is an odd choice.

@chasesgirl:  +1

@fzesguer:  “considering many brides today opt for “non-bridal” simple long white dresses for their wedding gowns” 

One of the weddings I mentioned, the bride’s dress was very simple, and one of the guest’s white dresses was fancier! Definitely should avoid showing up the bride…

Why would a female guest wear a white dress to a wedding, especially is it is known that the bride will be wearing white. In my opinion, that is rude and not a nice thing to do.

Perhaps your cousin was aware that this female guest was going to wear white and it didn’t bother her. Perhaps she was told of the color of this guest’s dress but didn’t know it was going to be lace. I can’t wait to find out if your cousin talks to you about this situation. 

 

I have a guest who is coming to my wedding who will act as the host. Several times, she has asked me about the color of my dress, my shoes and flowers. Each time, she mentionned she would for example also get champagne colored shoes. I told her no way. I told her my flowers would mainly be pinked. She said she would get a pink dress. I told her no way hosé! I finally told her I wanted her to wear nothing that would take the attention away from me. Its probably a rude thing to say but I’ve been on so many wedding sites and read so many times that our wedding is is ” our day” that I truly am starting to believe it and act upon it. This guest-host is a good friend of mine so I didn’t have any trouble telling her what I thought. I actually told her what color of dress she should buy. She said that is what she would look for! She’s finally getting the hint lol

I would have been ropable if I was the Bride.

Seriously, of ALL the times you chose to wear a white, floor length gown – it’s to a wedding?

Attention seeking / shock value if you ask me.

EVERYONE knows it is just not the done thing.

Sigh
