“You cannot wear white” is a wedding tradition that many bridesmaids follow from different generations, races, and beliefs. Dare not upstage the bride. That’s what they say. In effect, white bridesmaid dresses took some time to hit the market or the wedding scene.
But things are starting to be different. More and more wedding parties are gracing the wedding aisles with white dresses without stealing the spotlight from the bride.
Are White Bridesmaid Dresses Acceptable?
Yes, they are. While some wedding literature would say that one must not wear white since that is the colour designated for the bride, wearing white bridesmaid dresses is acceptable. After all, the bride will choose the colour and style of the bridesmaid dresses. Instead of white, some brides let their bridal party wear ivory bridesmaid dresses.
But if you still need a little more convincing that shaking up this "tradition" is okay, here are some gorgeous white bridesmaid dresses we recommend.
