The Great Debate - Is it OK to Wear White to a Wedding?

With wedding season in full swing this summer*, the debate has arisen on Lover.ly as to whether guests should be able to wear white to a wedding.




Is it acceptable or does it just steal the bride’s thunder?

Traditionally, guests are not supposed to wear white to a wedding, but I believe that it is acceptable to some extent. White accessories are totally OK, but a full white dress… I’m not sure. If it were your big day, you’d want to be the centre of attention. I know that I wouldn’t like it if someone tried to outshine me, so I respect and support the idea that wearing a white dress to a wedding is not ok. For a summer wedding, white can be a very nice, refreshing colour, however once again, I believe the bride should be the only one wearing full white. A colour block dress with white as a featuring colour would be totally fun, and a short nude or cream dress would keep everybody happy. As long as the guest’s dress doesn’t resemble the brides’ dress, then all is good! I love classic, timeless weddings so it’s no surprise that I also like to keep tradition. With this in mind however, I do progress with the times, so I believe that only the bride should wear full white, however, the guests should be able to include some aspect of white in their outfit or wear a nude/cream dress.  

What is your standpoint on this great debate? Sound off in the comments below!

If I were attending a summer wedding, I would wear a short flowy dress. My favourite type of dress is a fit and flare - form-fitting at the top, cinches at the waist, and then extends out into a flowy skirt. I feel that it is such a classic, elegant cut that is the perfect fit for my petite frame. Here are a few dresses that I would wear as a guest to a dreamy summer time wedding:
















Although I am still a teen, and have no intention of getting married anytime soon, I do dream about having a big, romantic wedding. I love browsing through pretty mermaid silhouette gowns, and admiring gorgeous sweetheart necklines, so I have compiled a few of my fave wedding dresses, purely for looking at and admiring. Enjoy!

  1. These dresses are totally gorgeous. Personally, I don't think it's appropriate to wear white to a wedding. It can seem disrespectful.

  2. I love those dresses! And about wearing white to a wedding, especially a really intricate dress, people might not know who the bride is (even though the veil might tip people off ;D)
