Wedding Wednesday: As A Guest, Can You Wear White To A Wedding?

Weddings are special, and seeing the bride walk down the aisle in a white flowing dress is something every guest look forward to.

 

However,  people are confused if a guest can wear white to a wedding, after all, we are in the 21st century and fashion has evolved. So should the constant that the bride is the only one permitted to wear white at a wedding remain?.

 

Meanwhile, modern brides now opt for Off-white, light blush, champagne, and ivory dresses, other than the white flowing wedding dresses.

However, below are instances where white is acceptable as a wedding guest:

  •  The bride wants her bridal party in white and you are a bridesmaid.

 

  • If you’re attending an all-white wedding, which would be specified on the invitation.

 

  • If your outfit has a pattern with subtle hints of white.
