    I’d have to see the dress.

    As long as it’s not overwhelmingly white – like there’s a big pattern on it or something – I don’t see the problem.  I would only get miffed if it was a solid white/ivory/champagne colored dress.

    Aren’t most sundresses white, or have white in them somewhere? Who cares I say!

    The dress is white issue regards dresses that would cause the wearer to be mistaken for the bride. It doesn’t sound like any one is running that risk in this case.

    My sister and two sisters in law wore ivory dresses to my wedding, and I chose the color. You can do whatever you want, as long as you like it!

    No, if white is just one of the colors but the color is not predominantly white, it wouldn’t bother me (and I’m one of those people who doesn’t like an all white/off-white/black/nearly-black look at weddings at all).

    @swisea01:  If the bride is fine with it, it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks.

    As long as it just has bits of white and not, like, all white with a floral belt.

    I wouldn’t care. Someone could show up in full on white to my wedding and I’d shrug. Brides do not hold the monopoly on the color white.
