Should You Wear White To A Wedding?

Welcome to the Weekly Wednesday Survey!  Every Wednesday the Wedding Confessionals Crew tackles one wedding related hot topic and get all of our different takes on the subject.   Get ready, y’all.  The group’s got some STRONG OPINIONS!


White is a tricky color, you can’t wear it after Labor Day and you can’t wear it to a wedding unless you’re the bride….or can you?  Should any wedding guest attempt to wear white to a wedding?

Jen: First of all who can actually rock a white cocktail dress? Let’s be real. And finding one that doesn’t scream bride? Nope.

Additional tip: I also like to find out what color the bridesmaids are wearing and avoid that too. It’s the same reason I don’t wear a red shirt to Target. I don’t want to be expected to work. Just werk. Heyyyyy!

Lauren: Personally, I used to get so caught up in the idea of what the world says was a go that I stunted my own fashion growth! LOL!  Only if the bride decided to go against the grain and wear a color like black or red, would I be so fearless as to wear white to a wedding.  Other than that, save the white for your baby’s christening.  But if you do wear white – as they say bad publicity is still publicity!  You know they will talk about you like church folk at Sunday service!  Right after the bride says I do and that’s how they will remember you!  “Oh yeah, I remember her!  She the one that wore white to Sharon’s wedding!”

Pam: Wearing white to a wedding that is not your own is just rude!! Don’t do it…there is something else in your closest that’s clean and fits….wear it!

Erika: I think it’s totally okay to wear a dress or suit that also happens to be white to a wedding as long as it doesn’t look like a wedding dress. If you’re tacky enough to think a giant, floor-length, tulle, princessy number is okay to wear to your friend’s wedding then it’s not the color that makes you an asshole, it’s the YOU that makes you an asshole.

Paul: This depends on your bride…I know my sister, who’s kinda shy, would have been thrilled to have someone pull focus on her wedding day.  On the other hand, I know that if my husband was my wife and someone had worn white to our wedding, they would have been straight up shanked in the bathroom.  So really, it comes down knowing your audience.  Unless you’re the Mother of the Groom…then it’s just no.

Brooke: Are you Beyoncé?  Were you invited to your sister Solange’s bad ass wedding?  No?  Then keep the white outfit at home.  Today ain’t about you, honey.

Now that we got that out of the way, can we all bow down to this wedding picture?  #flawless #teamsolange #yesi’mtalkingabouttheelevatorfight #neverforget #lemonemoji
