    Nope – I wore a white dress and am one of the believers that no one should ever wear white to a wedding except the bride (and maybe a cute flower girl if the bride wants).

    Although I do think it is harder to “claim” a color if you aren’t wearing the typical white/ivory.  Not all of the guests are going to know/expect a bride in green / red / etc to know to avoid the color for their attire.

    If I were wearing a dress colored anything other than white I would definitely be willing to share the color with other guests. If I was wearing white or a shade of white (i.e. ivory) then I would be a little more hesitant, but I still don’t think I would care in the end.

    Well, I did have a guest in a white dress at my wedding, so I guess I shared my color inadvertently πŸ™‚

    My memaw has bought a white dress suit for my wedding.  It has some floral design on the jacket.  She asked me if it was okay and of course I said yes. I’m not really that traditional when it comes to the wedding…I want it to be semi-formal and semi-laid back and fun…not uptight!! Plus, she’s my memaw, and while she is beautiful, she’s not in any way trying to upstage me anyways. Plus, she was so proud of finding this dress suit that I couldn’t be mean and tell her NO she can’t wear it. She’s too precious. πŸ™‚

    Voted ‘Why not?’ but if there was an ‘Emphatically YES!’ option, that’s what I would’ve picked.  My bridal party is going to wear white/ivory/cream with me and I’m thrilled about it.

    @Mrs Grape: No no, it didn’t look bridal at all–it was a sleeveless, knee length dress, and didn’t at all look formal or bride-y. I just thought it was funny. I also didn’t even notice it on the day of; I only realized it when we were going through pictures like two months later!

    Personally it would not bother me, but I am not so traditionally bent. Besides, it is not like there is going to be any confusion as to who was getting married based on a colour, really.

    I’m wearing black in my winter wedding, so I would be surprised if I don’t have a lot of people “matching” me.

    I voted no, there are very few things I’m “Me Me Me” about, and White on my day is one of them. It’s not going to kill someone to pick another color for 5 hours πŸ™‚
