I think it is OK as long as you accessorise the right way. Beige shoes and a veil not so nice. Colourful accessories, no problem.

Unrequired sarcasm and snark aside, many people who are clumsy naturally avoid white and cream clothes, and yes, there are clumsy adults in the world. I personally wore pink to my wedding, partly for that reason, partly to be different.

I take my hat off to anyone wearing white in public. I would either sit in something or spill something on myself. I know this is a fluffy vent but I would look for another dress. If you want to score points in a family squabble pick a less significant event.

There was no sarcasm or snark...

I said most adults because I am an adult who can’t wear white as I am a slob but most other people in my world manage quite fine!

That was pretty much why I gave her the ok to wear the white dress to my wedding - it seemed that she wanted me to say no, so I said yeah whatever I don’t care. Several people actually asked me if I was ok about it and seemed shocked that she would do it.

So no, I will not wear white. I will look fabulous though.
I didn't even notice what other people wore on the day. Looking at happy snaps afterward I was quite surprised to see that one of DH's billion cousins wore a track suit to our ceremony. A multi-coloured parachute tracksuit.
I know the wedding ceremony isn't considered to be very important in the IL's culture however it was still hilarious.

Ok I just google “parachute tracksuit” and the results pop up as costumes. Rightly so too.

At a friend’s wedding her (not very nice!) SIL wore a floor length white chiffon dress with a matching chiffon shawl that looked a lot like a veil. She was more dressy than the bridesmaids, and it looked really odd.

She may not care at all?


My 3 bridesmaids wore white which I think shows how stupid I think the sentiment that only the bride wears white is.

I also don't care about black being worn at a wedding either.....or naked or whatever takes your fancy.



eta.....I just ate my Chow Mien with a 42 year old Splayd.

Gosh I wish I could’ve worn shorts and T-shirt, so hot and sweaty. And I never noticed the guests, there could been a sea of white and I would’ve been oblivious still yearning to be wearing that pair of shorts and a T-shirt........

There is a saying that you shouldn't wear black to a wedding either. I was a bridesmaid for a friend years ago and we wore black as our bridesmaids dress. It looked fantastic!!

More proof I am not really an adult.

I think I've worn white once since being an adult. It was a white top I bought to get married in.

I was carrying a bouquet with hibiscus. I got yellow pollen all over the white top before the 3 minute ceremony was even complete.
Lol are you me? I keep a spare dress and stockings in my drawer at work because I’m prone to spillages even when wearing black in a clean office environment...

She may not care at all. I may projecting a whole heap of my frustrations with the whole thing onto poor SIL. I started the thread because I need a bit of a diversion. Fluffy, as per the title.

Review have dresses which you can wear a proper bra under. If you have one of their outlet stores nearby check them out. Not necessarily breastfeeding friendly though, but if you won't need to feed discreetly it's doable.

Hahahaha I must ask my new SIL if she minds if I wear a white dress with a bit of colour in their wedding very shortly.

But you are living dangerously. I may or may not have started threads at the expense of someone close. Now they are pregnant and quite possibly have joined the EB community and would one day come across said threads. Now and then I break out in cold sweats when thinking about it but then, I too like to live dangerously.

Fingers crossed... I hope it is an okay day, breast feeding at weddings is not the easiest thing to do.
One of my daughters got married with a 12 week old baby......getting him fed during the day was a little tricky. :)

The only time I didn't spill on my white clothes was my wedding day OR it could have been that I was too drunk to notice?

I blame it on the breast shelf.

I would love to vent so much more about this wedding, as there are so many things to vent/or be boggled over, but I’m assuming that at least one guest or family member are on EB, and holding back.

I really want to give them splayds. We will probably give cash.
