My FSIL wore a white and black dress to my wedding (white on top, black on bottom) and she apologised that it had white on it! Seriously I could not have cared! The dress was gorgeous and she looked fabulous.
I agree with the PP that said no one will confuse a guest and the bride; unless of course the guest wears a wedding dress of course!

To be honest, I would rather wear white to a wedding than black, as I wore black to a wedding many years ago when I was about 18 and the rude and hurtful comments I overheard were so much so, that when I sat down with the bride to watch her wedding video there was a whole segment where people were commenting on my choice of colour and Funeral comments, blah, blah, blah. I was so hurt watching that and seeing people mock me.
Anyway I digress, unless your white outift was overtly 'bridal' looking then I see no issue with wearing white and would team it with coloured accessories/shoes/clutch/fascinator etc if I was worried about the 'bridal' factor.
ETA: If I were in the wedding photos/family photos then no, I wouldn't wear white

I thought Kate Middleton's sister Pippa (being her only attendant) took a risk wearing white/cream next to her sister, but instead of the colour of her dress upstaging her sister, it was her backside instead!

So I went to exchange my dress because I couldn't get a refund & I couldn't find anything in the shop that fitted me well or looked nice. I can't afford to buy a new dress & shoes either. Mum said she's wearing a cream dress too & the bride is wearing an ivory dress. Not cream like my other sister had told me. So I've spent the past day stressing over nothing!

Pippa was a bridesmaid, so I assume she wore what she was dressed in by the bride....and the designer and wedding stylist.

Personally I wouldn't & tbh I would've been upset if someone wore an all white dress to my wedding. ...but thats only my thoughts & everyone is different.
It's all good if it's white with other colours, just not all white. I try & not wear white or any colour of the bridesmaids dresses will be.
Could u get a little black over coat thing (I don't really know what they're called). It'll look nice with that on , pair of black heels & black clutch/purse.
Or if u know the bride, just ask. She may not even care good luck, I'm sure u'll look great in whatever u choose & I hope u have fun at the wedding

I, personally, wouldn't care if someone wore a white dress to my wedding (tbh I didn't even notice) but I know lots of people do care, so I wouldn't wear white as a guest.
I don't see the issue with black though, as some pp's are mentioning.
