With summer wedding season around the corner, the old-age question, can I wear white to a wedding, is popping up.
We all know it used to be considered disrespectful to wear white to weddings. Afterall, the attention should be on the bride.
Unfortunately to answer the question…no. You should only wear white to a wedding if you’re the bride.
Yes, many wedding rules have gone away over the years, but never upstage the bride. It is her special day. No matter what you’re wearing or no matter how un-bridal it looks, if you are the only person that’s wearing white, you will stick out like a sore thumb. It would be better etiquette if you chose to wear something else.
How would you feel if you saw a room full of people wearing white too? I’m not sure I would like the feeling.
I say avoid wearing white at all costs. You do not want the bride or any of the bridal party to feel upstaged because of the color your chose. It’s an old-fashioned rule, but sometimes the old-fashioned rules, never go away.

With an all-star cast led by Robert De Niro, Katherine Heigl, Diane Keaton, Amanda Seyfried, Topher Grace, with Susan Sarandon and Robin Williams, THE BIG WEDDING is an uproarious romantic comedy about a charmingly modern family trying to survive a weekend wedding celebration that has the potential to become a full blown family fiasco.
To the amusement of their adult children and friends, long divorced couple Don and Ellie Griffin (De Niro and Keaton) are once again forced to play the happy couple for the sake of their adopted son’s wedding after his ultra conservative biological mother unexpectedly decides to fly halfway across the world to attend. With all of the wedding guests looking on, the Griffins are hilariously forced to confront their past, present and future – and hopefully avoid killing each other in the process. Screenplay by Justin Zackham. Directed by Justin Zackham.
Have you ever thought about having mismatched bridesmaid dresses? Well…think about it! Mismatched bridesmaid dresses are one of the hottest and hardest trends to try in weddings.
There are no rules to having mismatched bridesmaid dresses – only secrets! Which one will you try?
Secret #1: Consider choosing bridesmaid dresses that are the same fabric or same color, but different styles! For example, either all satin dresses or pink chiffon dresses. Remember – the key is having “like” fabric. Here are some examples from our Pinterest page:
Secret #2: Have bridesmaids wear the same dress, same color, but different shades of color. This will allow your bridesmaids to stand out and show their personality.
