- Wedding: March 2005 - Westside Loft, New York
Honestly I don’t think I’d care that much if a guest wore a white dress to my wedding, but it really bothers me when I’m a guest at a wedding, and another guest wears a white dress!
What about you? Do guests wearing white dresses at weddings bother you in any way?

White eyelet sundress with a colored sash, no.
Strapless long white/ivory Vera Wang ballgown with a train, yes. 🙂

- Wedding: March 2010 - Calamigos Ranch
I don’t actually think I’d be that mad, but I’d feel like I should be! I think I’d feel offended by the choice the same way I’d be offended by anyone else’s really blatant etiquette faux pas.

I think it sort of depends on the guest… If it was someone who I thought knew the "rule," I’d be upset. If it were just an innocent error (like a younger cousin or something), it wouldn’t bother me.

I wouldn’t care. What anyone else wears isn’t going to ruin the day, lessen our fun, or change the fact that we’re the ones getting married. For these same reasons, we know there will be people at our wedding dressed like we’re having a black tie affair and others in jeans. As long as everyone has fun and celebrates with us, it doesn’t matter what they wear.

Honestly, it wouldn’t bother me. I might think it was a little odd, but I wouldn’t be offended if someone did it. It may sound bad, but I don’t remember what anyone (outside of the wedding party) wore to my wedding. I just remember being happy to see everyone’s smiling faces, celebrating our day.

I probably wouldn’t even notice. 🙂
My sister (MOH) would definitely notice, and be mad on my behalf, though.

Honestly, I wouldn’t care, and don’t think that I’d even notice. In the grand scheme of things, the color of a guest’s dress should not be a priority on your wedding day. The focus should be on the fact that you have just been married, an amazing thing 🙂

Depends on the style and how formal the dress is. I may not even notice but as a guest I would notice and will think its totally inappropriate!

I don’t know if I will care enough at my own wedding, but it definitely annoys me when I see guests doing it!

I guess I’ve always seen this as a tad rude. White is reserved for the bride, as it’s her special day.

Nope! Because I am not wearing white but champagne! So guests – white away!

YES. Please don’t wear a white dress to a wedding. Can you not refrain for one day to choose another dress besides white? Come on! I mean, it’s a wedding, typically the bride wears white, why would you – the guest, want to even wear white too? It’s weird. It’s sooo weird as if you’re in competition with the bride.
Don’t wear white to my wedding.
