At a wedding, when you see a woman in a glamorous white dress, you'll naturally assume it's the bride. And you may find yourself a tad bit confused when you realize it's actually just another wedding guest.

This is one of the reasons why wearing white to someone else's wedding simply isn't a good idea. It gives the impression that one's trying to steal focus on another person's big day and is just seen as an overall tacky thing to do.

There's nothing wrong with letting a bride have her moment and that includes not waging a wedding dress war against her at her own nuptials.

Woman in white comes under fire

A wedding guest received backlash on social media for choosing to wear what looked to be a white dress to the event.

The photo was posted to Reddit and in the caption, the poster explained that the woman in the snap was neither the bride nor part of the bridal party.

Understandably, people were very upset with the guest's choice. One Reddit user @thisISshittyy wrote:

Another indignant user @bakedsunflowers commented:

However, some people were on the side of the lady in the picture as they believed that the dress wasn't actually white and could have simply been photographed wrongly.

@jaya9581 commented:

Think the dress is silver or pale blue? The pearls on the belt are white, the dress definitely is not.

@evilflamingcat agreed:

It completely looks blue to me. Like a baby blue. Kinda like a 90s prom dress.

What should you wear for a wedding?

If white dresses are not an option, what other choices do you have when you're attending a wedding?

According to CarrieColbert, apart from not clashing with the bride, you shouldn't clash with the bridesmaids either. Also, you may want to look at the invitation closely in case there's a dress code.

In general, you shouldn't arrive at a wedding looking too casual or too formal. It's a celebration after all. Go for fun, classy, comfortable and stylish looks and your beauty is sure to shine through.

Being invited to be a part of someone else's special day is an honor indeed and it's not smart to turn it into some sort of fashion contest. Embrace a happy attitude and dress beautifully. Don't be afraid to explore different trends but just make sure you don't spark any drama.
