A MUM has started a debate online as to whether or not her dress is “too white” to wear to a wedding in fear of upstaging the bride.
The anonymous woman took to Netmums to share her dilemma, after ordering a white spotted dress for a friend’s nuptials “without thinking about it being white”.
Posting alongside a picture of the one shoulder dress, which is covered in black spots, the woman admitted she was in a “panic” about ordering the frock.
She wrote: “The dress I wanted to wear to the wedding wasn’t delivered in time, so I panic bought this one last night.
“I completely didn’t think about it being white! I was planning on wearing it with a beige jacket and beige wedges. Am I going to have to get another one?”
Dozens of parents took to the comment section to give advice to the flustered woman – with many assuring her the dress choice was “lovely”.
“I think it’s fine, especially considering it’s summer time,” one woman wrote. “Besides, it’s covered in all those black dots so it isn’t exactly a white dress.”
“I wouldn’t have an issue at all,” another agreed. “It isn’t bridal looking so you would get away with it.”
A third said: “It’s clearly not a wedding dress. Someone wore something similar to my wedding and I didn’t mind at all!”
“I don’t think it’s too white,” a mum concurred. “Even if someone had worn white to my wedding it wouldn’t have upset me – as long as everyone is having a great day.”
Others however weren’t convinced, and worried that if the bride was particularly sensitive, they might be upset by one of the guests wearing white to the wedding.
“Just don’t do it,” someone simply responded. “The rule is not to wear white to a wedding and that dress is more white than any other colour. So many more colours to choose from.”
Another agreed: “White is for the bride on her day – and while this has polka dots it might offend her. I’ve always thought it’s wrong to do.”
“Yes it’s too white,” a third said. “I wouldn’t risk anything that white for a wedding. Stay well clear just to avoid the bride thinking it was done on purpose and just order a new dress.”
