By now, we should all know that unless you have a legally-binding agreement signed by the bride herself, wearing a white dress to a wedding is best avoided.
It's an old-fashioned rule which most rational brides probably don't care that much about – but that doesn't mean other people don't take it VERY seriously.
So when one excited wedding guest shared an image of the dress she wore to a recent wedding, the haters were quick to condemn her.
The anonymous woman had bought and worn a white floral appliqué dress, and shared a photo along with an explanation, writing:
"I have a wedding to attend and fell in love with a really nice dress but it's white. It was also on sale for $89 with another 20 per cent off".
She quickly found people questioning her motivation.
"Look I am not super OCD about the white dress thing, my husband's nana wore white to my wedding, but I find all of this so questionable. It's pretty well accepted that this is rude," one outraged woman responded.
"I mean 'wearing white' is one thing but this looks like a wedding dress. Not okay," another added.
"It's terribly rude to even consider wearing white to a wedding if it's not asked of the guests. White is for the bride. Girls are so weird about letting another woman shine when it's their day. Just pick a different colour. It isn't hard," fumed someone else.
However, not everyone had the knives out.
"Ask the bride. I wouldn't care if someone wore white to my wedding but other people may find it rude," read a more measured response.
"It's the most ridiculous rule. No way does a regular dress look like a wedding dress/gown. And no way is a basic Jane with a white dress 'taking away attention away from the bride'," another agreed.
It's 2019. Maybe it's time this rule was phased out?
