80sMum what instead? My legs are hideously pale and blotchy (although long and slim) and cannot be bared to the general public!! Thought black opaques too wintery and can't really think of any other legwear..
I think the dress is lovely and it really depends on your reaction to your friends directive. If you think it is bloody rude of her to dictate what colours you cannot wear and if she was so concerned then it should have been clear from the beginning then go with it. If on the other hand you are kinded than me and want to avoid upsetting your friend then I would check with her before wearing either of the outfits esp the dress as it is mostly white.
I will text her....am inclined to agree with you casamama this kind of bridezilla shit pisses me off. But I don't want to upset her. At least I'm not one of her 7 bridesmaids, my fiend is one and she's been nearly in tears because she hates the dress so much. She's really self conscious about her back and shoulders and the dress is....yes you've guessed it, strapless!
Is it pretty standard meltedchocolate? i've been to loads of weddings and there have always been a few women wearing totally non bridal white/cream/ oyster outfits.
I made sure what i chose wasn't chiffony, floaty, full skirted, strapless, long, ethereal etc.etc. All the black dresses I looked at just didn't seem right, not summery enough and with the hat a bit funereal.
She's said ok anyway, trust me she's not the sort to be delicate...blunt could be her middle name. Part of me does react rather childishly tbh about being told what to wear....it's not a ball or a state occasion ffs.
