    Personally I think its unreasonable to request a certain color and of all colours....white! I would find out if you can accessorise with white, if not then I think you shouldn't feel guilty about not attending if thats what you decide. If she wants to specify a dress code she should pick something that people would already have and not need to purchase.

    White parties are definitely the in thing , we went to one last year and it was pretty cool - I'm in the minority it seems but I think you should be able to have any kind of party you want , I personally love themed parties and have had a few over the years and am sure will have many more, if people choose not to come then that's ok , I've never been strict about it and if people choose not to use the dress code then that's fine too - but hopefully OP this girl will understand but just talk to her first before you dismiss it as it may not be a big deal to her ( and if it is then it's not worth your stress!)

    I tend to agree. Some people like themed parties, if it's their party it's their choice. I had a fancy dress party when I was a bit younger and most people didn't get dressed up. It was pretty disappointing and I felt out of place at my own party because hardly anyone was in fancy dress

    Is this becoming a thing now? I went to a 40th with a "white, dress like a star" party last year.

    To be honest, I didn't want to buy anything new for that either. I already had a beautiful silk dress, white background with brightly coloured floral pattern and wore that. The host didn't make any comment about it and some people didn't wear white at all.

    I've seen a few "white" parties in recent times, I think it might be en vogue set by Kyle Richards in the reality show, real housewives of Beverly Hills. She has a big White party every year.

    I could be wrong but I the one I went to was quite ritzy and everyone was in white head to toe.

    You might find something on eBay? I feel your pain, I dread wearing white too.

    Thanks for the replies! Thought I'd update for anyone whose interested. I called my friend to double check the dress code and was told definitely all white. She was nice about it but said if I couldn't find anything all white she understood if I couldn't make it. I had a look around but to be honest couldn't justify buying something I didn't particular like just to wear once so I decided not to go.

    She chose her dress code over your company?!!!

    Are you alright with that?
