Do you play by the rules?

In my latest issue of In Style, the reader poll was called, “Do you play by the rules?”

77% of readers responded that they would never wear white to a wedding. Really?! 23% of you think that it is acceptable to WEAR WHITE TO A WEDDING? It isn’t. I’ve said it before, I will say it again: 110% wrong.

White Wedding


Before getting married, I posted my thoughts of a guest wearing white at a wedding. And then, of course, I had a guest show up wearing white. I DID notice but didn’t say anything.


What would you do?

More importantly, would you ever wear white to a wedding?

You are wearing WHAT?!


Etiquette is a touchy subject on the knot; well at least on my local board. I’m pretty much a devotee of Emily Post & frequently look for advice in her books.

Even if you aren’t as unyielding as me, most women wouldn’t even think twice about it. In fact, Greer from Faye & Greer completed discounted this dress because it only came in white.


The Editor of Martha Stewart’s Wedding, Darcy Miller, recently started a blog. One of her latest entries talked about her decision to wear white to a wedding! You can imagine my horror. I’m glad to see that I wasn’t the only one outraged. Check out the comments!
