By wedding party, do you mean reception? And it sounds like this guest was asked to wear it per the bride and groom? Interesting!

If someone had worn their actual wedding dress to my wedding, I would probably be shocked but mostly worried for then as that’s very odd! I wouldn’t actually do anything though, other than check in with them like I would any chest and judge if they’re alright.

As a gracious host, you can’t dictate what your guests wear or do anything if a guest shows up wearing white. Or if they show up in yoga pants. I mean, what are you going to do? Kick them out? That’d reflect poorly on you.

And if the Bride & Groom asked guests to wear white… then it sounds like that is their preference. Maybe that’s not what you meant to convey?

Not care. 

If they wear white, okay it’s a color no one is going to get confused. If they showed up in a legit wedding dress it’s like free entertainment I didn’t have to pay for.

I’m with Slomotion on this one lol. Its just a colour. My guests kept asking me what they should wear and what colour I wanted them to wear and I was just like dude its your clothes. Just don’t show up to my wedding in shorts. Sunday best is fine. 

If someone HAD shown up in a white, especially a wedding dress though im pretty sure my entire family and my husband’s family  would make fun of them for the rest of their lives for it.  Free entertainment. But when it came to stuff like that I was  pretty laid back. I saved my zilla moments for other things than dictating a clothes colour. My zilla moments got collected for my ring redo instead lol.

What people do with their body, including the clothes they wear, really affects my life none.  Not once in my life has another person’s clothing made one bit a difference to what happens to me.  I can’t imagine it would be any different at my wedding.  I’m secure in myself and the knowledge that everyone is smart enough to figure out the person at the front of the room saying vows whose name is on the invitation they received is the one getting married.  If you choose to let someone else’s clothing affect your experience then that’s 100% on you.

 

And I really don’t understand why it’s a problem if someone specifically requested it of their guest, other than its rude to try to dictate someone’s clothing in the first place.
