  • The bride should be the only one in any shade of white IMO...but ask her and see what she thinks.

  • I agree! At my friends wedding...which I didn't know her then...her own MOTHER wore a tea length white lacy dress! I am not kidding!

  • NO! Don't do it! Wear something BRIGHT and colorful, like pink or teal or bright blue. White or any variation is the bride's color, plus, do you want to wear a color that will make you blend in with anything? NO! You want to stand out and show everyone you are quite the gorgeous little thing too!

  • I would show it to the bride and ask her... if she is ok with it, then wear it, if not..go get something new. I am sure you need a reason to buy something new and fun just like I do.. this would be perfect!

  • I would recommend NOT bothering a bride in the middle of planning a wedding about you're going to wear. Just take the opportunity to buy a pretty new (colorful) dress!
