Is it ever OK to wear white to a wedding?
A woman has caused a bit of a stir online as she posed a question to an online mum’s group.
Going against the grain, she wants to wear white to a wedding.
The anonymous woman explained in further detail in her post, saying:
“I’ve just purchased this dress for a charity event I have to attend but I am hoping it will double up for an upcoming wedding.”
She insists that the “bottom of the dress is like a taupe colour” and that she’s worried people will stare.
“I don’t think the bride will mind but I’m more concerned about other guests’ opinions.”
Many were quick to point out that you don’t wear white to a wedding.
“Absolutely not. It’s lovely, but not for a wedding. Just don’t be that person,” one user pointed out.
Another agreed, saying that they liked the dress.
“It’s a gorgeous dress but being honest, I’d take issue with someone wearing that colour to my wedding.”
One clever user also pointed out the position that the guest had put the bride in.
“If you ask the bride, you’re putting her in a very difficult situation, especially if she knows you’ve already bought it.
“I think it’s too close to cream/ivory to wear to a wedding and I’d have been annoyed if you wore it to mine.”
It’s unclear what the anonymous poster intends to do, as they’ve since not commented on their post.
