Judith Martin on Who Should and Shouldn't Wear White to Weddings
A Romanian priest recently set the blogosphere abuzz when he said women should pay a "white dress fine" if they are not virgins when they marry (click here to read the story). Meanwhile, there are others who say the bride should indeed always wear white, but the guests must make sure to wear anything but the "pure" color.
Our Judith Martin sets us straight on who should and shouldn’t wear white to a wedding.
Q: Is it ever not OK for the bride to wear white?
A: The idea that the dress is a kind of truth in packaging statement about the state of the body inside was always an extremely distasteful idea. And it has long been abandoned.
Q: Is it OK for guests to wear white?
A: No, it isn’t. It’s not the greatest crime in the world; but it isn’t OK, either.
