Quick Question...

Do I have to wear a white dress for my Catholic wedding or can it be a different color? I'm not sure if they have rules about this or not.

Thanks for your help..

  • Nope - doesn'thave to white, doesn't even have to be a dress. It should be modest which in some parishes means that shoulders should be covered (that's based on the parish).

  • I am not Catholic, but it is my understanding that G-d does not care what color dress you wear.

  • You don't need to wear a white dress. But some churches do have rules about having your shoulders covered.

  • it s a catholic church, you could probably go in jeans and sneakers, they're not going to care.

  • It doesn't matter. People ware white during many religious and nonreligious ceremonies out of tradition not because its required.
