    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!

    I'm sorry, but just because someone else gets offended, and you don't, doesn't make their marriage any less valid.

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

    It's rude.

    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.

    She was bridesmaid. Kate chose the dress.

    Agree completely.
