She looks completely overdressed compared to the one on the right! I would probably be annoyed, that dress is silk, long, and cut like a bridal gown. If it were in any other color, I probably would have assumed bridesmaid too.

That looks like a wedding gown to me and it doesn’t photograph pink. If it not had been for the bling on the other dress I would’ve had a hard time guessing who the bride was. Definitely a faux pas. And like others have said, the material of the dress is another big culprit here. It looks very weddingy and could have passed for a destination gown. Tsk tsk… hopefully your friend learned her lesson especially with the public call out on Facebook.

Yeah that would burn my toast a bit! By looking at the picture it looks like 2 brides, not just one. Hopefully your friend doesn’t wear it to another wedding!

I don’t know that I would be mad. That takes up too much energy and it is not that important, I mean no one should be mistaking her for the bride. That said, it is a very poor choice and I would think she is looking for attention. How sad.

Yeah, um, that’s not OK. Like someone else said, if the bride wasn’t blinged out I wouldn’t have known who the bride was.

LOL knowing my Maid/Matron of Honor that “pink” dress would have a nice big red wine stain on it by the end of the night.

Personally, I wouldn’t care if someone wore that to my wedding, but if I had a dress like that, I wouldn’t wear it to anyone else’s wedding because I know others may be offended by it.

I have to admit, I saw that dress and thought “oh that’s the wedding gown! wait a minute…..” it totally looks like something i’d sleep in. Pink has to actually be PINK in order for it to count. that’s less pink than the bridal champagney pinks that are out there.

I stay away from anything that light, even champagne as a wedding guest. It’s just not worth it.

To be honest, I don’t think this would be something that would upset me.  If her dress was more “glamorous” than mine, then yes it might be an issue.  “Issues” like this aren’t important in the grand scheme of things.

I don’t think I would be mad. I don’t think it was the best choice for her. Was it short? Cause that makes a difference as well.

Not defending her but pale pink is VERY popular right now in fashion (with the whole vintage lace thing going on) so it’s not totally crazy that she’d pick something pale pink – plus I don’t think it would be that light in person but might reflect a lot of light in pictures.

I wouldn’t be super happy about it. It almost looks like a casual wedding dress. Why on earth someone would wear THAT to a wedding, is beyond me. Pink? Really? It completely looks white to me.
