Woman's 'unacceptable' wedding guest outfit starts an online debate
What would you say?
One woman started an online debate recently after asking if it would be acceptable to wear a white skirt to a wedding.
The Mumsnet user had planned to wear a black top and white lace skirt to her sister-in-law's big day but given the amount of criticism she received, she changed her mind.
There's always been an unspoken rule about wearing white to a wedding but this internet user wanted to bend the rule and here's what she had to say.
"Only thing is, it's a black top with a white knee-length skirt. I thought it looked nice and I would get away with it esp if I had some nice chunky accessories to go with it but now i'm having second thoughts after reading some blogs that say you should never wear any white to a wedding.
"Then again other sources say you can. What are your opinions on this? The wedding doesn't have a particular dress code and is in mid-September".
It wasn't long before the comments starting rolling in, and people had lots to say as you'll see here.
Most were of the opinion that you shouldn't wear white to a wedding but others also said that they thought the outfit was a little casual.
This person wrote:
"I would never wear white to a wedding, I think it’s one of those situations where if you feel you need to ask then you probably shouldn’t do it".
One comment read:
"It's the bride's privilege to wear white and I think it's a respect thing".
This user had a different take on the subject.
"I like the outfit but wouldn't wear it to a wedding. Just personal, but was brought up to think white was a complete no and rude to the bride".
Another commenter said:
"I think the tradition of not wearing white to a wedding applies to dresses, not skirts or tops".
What do you think, is wearing white to a wedding unacceptable or would you try it?
