    I realise that, it was said tongue in cheek.

    I know if my sister was the Bride and suggested I wear white I would probably talk her out of it for fear of upstaging her and her dress, as I am sure my backside wouldn't upstage her!

    I always sort of thought that Kate got Pippa to wear the dress that she (Kate) really wanted to wear, but couldn't because she had to meet certain specifications, due to marrying the future King and all...

    No, I don't think it's good etiquette to wear a white dress to a wedding.

    I've been to a wedding where a guest wore a long white dress. I'm sure she was having a crack at upstaging the bride, she's that kinda gal.

    Don't discount other peoples' feelings about a topic just because you don't care.

    It's rude.
    Wow, defensive much?

    I don't think she was saying the marriage was any less valid at all. She was making the point that couples, usually women, get in a tissy over insignificant things, things that are hardly going to ruin a marriage or their life.

    I agree. Far out some people get so loony over weddings Who cares what colour the guests wear. It's hardly going to effect your life, and that was benji's point. I think some bride and grooms need to get some perspective....

    Think of the photos, you'll clash if you are standing near her, I was mortified that my MIL considered wearing white to our wedding... Luckily she changed her mind on her own!

    The girlfriend of one of my best mates wore an ultra mini, white lace dress (completely see-through and with black underwear) to my wedding and I was LIVID!

    I am not a centre-of-attention type girl, so it wouldn't bother me if someone wore white to my wedding. The only thing I wanted was to marry my DH and that was ticked off. Everything else was a minor detail compared to that.

    However, I wouldn't do it because I know how some women get about their weddings. No way would I want to be on the receiving end of a bridezilla. I have seen plenty of those shows to know better.
