So my bridal shower is next weekend. My bridesmaids are doing a "Southern Belle" themed shower. Do I have to wear white? Did you wear or will you wear white to your shower?

    I'm going to wear a green dress with a white lace overlay (similar to the pic below). You can wear whatever you want! :-)

    I think its customary to wear white, or that of your gown color. My dress is Ivory, so I would do a cream colored dress. Or eggshell. But I would add some pops of color to make it fun!! Of course, you can always wear what youre most comfortable AND feel your best in!

    I did wear white, but the first dress I bought was blue. I loved it but ended up buying a white dress too because it felt more bridal to me. Wear whatever you want!

    To be completely honest. I really wanted to wear white but then I found two really cute dresses on sale as jcpenny that I couldn't pass up. So now I'm wearing a white/ran/coral striped dress to one shower and a blue dress dress to another. I'd rather buy something that I will have the opportunity to wear again... Though I think I actually look quite good in white I would most likely never wear it again so I didn't waste the money.

    I will wear white. I have bought 3 or 4 white lacey dresses and when they all come in, I will try them on to see which one I want to keep LOL. I did buy pink jewelry and nude shoes already too.

    I wore white with a orange statement necklace and heels. But I think you can wear whatever color you want at your bridal shower Smiley smile

    I bought a white lace dress but I will wear to the shower my MIL is throwing. My other shower is this Friday and it's like a cocktail party aaaaaand I have terrible tan lines from a bad burn and peeling so I am choosing to wear a dress that covers most of that. It is not white.

    No you don't. You can wear anything you want. There is no rule about wearing white to a shower or any particular color.

    I've never heard a specific rule that said you had to wear white. Most people I've seen do, but I think that's just because they want to. I've also heard of alot of people who buy dresses in their wedding colors when they don't like white for the bridal shower/rehearsal dinner.

    My dress for my shower is a pastel blue with paisley print (same one from e-pics, for those that saw them). I dont think you need to wear white, although I've been to showers where the bride does indeed, wear white.

    I'm not wearing white. I'm wearing an adorable dress I've been drooling over for months.

    I think you can wear whatever you want. I did wear an ivory lace dress to my shower, but to my 2nd shower I wore a purple dress. I'm going to wear blue to the rehearsal :-)
