hmm, some people get very sensitive about that.  I personally wouldn’t care if you wore that and had a fun colored top…how sensitive about wedding type things is this bride? that is probably what i would consider when deciding.  of course you could just not do it to avoid any problems.  what if you got the skirt in a color instead?

Cute skirt!  But yeah, I’d avoid white altogether — even if the bride is cool with it, you don’t know who might get peeved (like the MOB, maybe?).

Have you thought about just straight up asking her?

I dunno it’s a toughy I would say that it seems safe, but you never know how people will react.  And times are changing where the ideals that were once rules are now courtesy.  I think  wearing it together with a white colored top would be a def. no no, but if you are wearing a other bright color I don’t see a problem (I wouldn’t care if it were my wedding).  Perhaps you should ask the bride or someone in her wedding party what they thing.  I wore an ivory colored dress with a brown floral pattern to my cousins wedding.  I know it wasn’t white nor solid in color, but no one had a problem with it.  Another thought..you could wear a longer shirt with the skirt so less white is exposed.

 

I am having these thoughts as well a friend is getting married soon and I have started ideas on making a dress for the occasion…am trying to decide if I should cut out the ivory lace detail I wanted with it.

I think if you wore a vibrant colored top with some jewelry and a colorful clutch it would be fine. I wouldn’t wear that skirt with any light colored top though because then you might stick out.

Yeah, I think some brides get upset about other people wearing white and honestly I always notice people at the wedding who do. But I think people are right, if you wear it with a bright colored top and some colorful accessories, you won’t stand out and will fit in just fine!

It wouldn’t bother me if someone wore white to my wedding, but I know there are people who might have a problem with it.  Like other people said, even if the bride doesn’t have a problem, one of her family members might.  Just to be on the safe side, you might want to avoid it.

I would wear it. The whole not wearing white thing is getting to be ridiculous. It’s a skirt! Who cares if her mom gets mad? Really? I would just make sure she’s cool with it and after that I would go for it.

I think it’s fine. its a beach, you’re supposed to dress light, and you said you’d have a vibrant top so it’s not like you’re in pure white or any shade or just white.
