Need some opinions!!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So I have a friend's wedding this weekend. I have googled to see if I could find some answers to my questions and everyone is mixed about it.

I have a white boho skirt I was going to wear with a pink or black dressy tank top and cute shoes.

This is the skirt:|58018|58020

What is your opinion on wearing a white skirt to a wedding? I thought it should be okay since I'm not in ALL white. I just need to know soon so I can find something else!

Thanks guys

I don't think there is a set of rules any more. Or rather, there are many sets of rules, depending on where you look. Lots of brides don't even wear white. For a summer wedding I don't see any problem with you wearing a white skirt and colored top. How well do you know the bride? You could just ask her if it would bother her for you to wear some white.

She and her fiance are pretty good friends. They come over when he is down from Toledo. She is wearing white but I figured since I'm not wearing ALL white it shouldn't be a problem. I just don't want to look tacky or anything.

I don't see anything wrong with it. People today wear almost anything but I think it depends on how formal the wedding is. I personally think what you've picked to wear is great but I'd ask her if it's bothering you.

I honestly don't think it would be a problem, since you will be wearing another color with it. Since the bride is a good friend, it would be a nice gesture to ask her how she feels about it, to make sure.

I think it would probably be okay (and REALLY cute) as long as the tank is a different color. BUT if you are having group pictures with the bride you're probably going to stand out more then others.

I'm going to stick with Emily Post on this one - find an outfit not predominantly white.

I know - times are a-changin'. My friend got married last year, summer, afternoon, relaxed, known her for 12 years, and I still didn't wear white, wouldn't dream of it. I know I'm the only naysayer - but it's proper etiquette.

I don't see a problem with, but if you're not sure perhaps just go with something else. you don't want to be uncomfortable about what you're wearing instead of enjoying the wedding!

Times have definitely changed. If you wear a coloured top with that skirt there is nothing wrong with it at all.

The only thing I would consider is if the wedding is formal or informal. If the wedding is formal then I would wear a more "taylored" look. That skirt is lovely but IMO rather informal.

I was at an Italian wedding last summer and almost all the guests were wearing lovely little black dresses. All the Italian women were very smartly dressed with the big hair and stiletto shoes to go with the look.
