Am I breaking the fashion rules of weddings
Rosskidsmum · 17/10/2018 14:03
I need help, I don’t know if I’ve massively over thought this now or am I going to be hunted down and killed by the wedding fashion mafia?!
Went shopping for my DF cousins wedding this weekend, as it’s now going to be too warm for the suit I was originally going to wear I have purchased cute checked tan tapered trousers and a cream basic Tshirt to go with paired with tan and cream heels I was happy with my look... then I read that you Cannot wear, cream ivory or white to someone else’s wedding! I would never dream of wearing a cream dress to someone else’s wedding but a tshirt will be ok surely? I’ve been out today and panic purchased a black top and blazer instead, but it really doesn’t look as nice 😞 am I massively over thinking this or are people like to pass comment on my colour choice, I would hate to offend anyone.

You can wear a cream top with trousers, I'd say that's fine. As long as you don't look bridal, you'll be fine.

As long as you don’t turn up in a floor length ivory satin gown you’re pretty much ok.
Your outfit sounds fine.

I wouldn’t wear t shirt to a wedding whatever the colour

Depends on the wedding but I wouldn't wear a t-shirt either.
Pringlecat · 17/10/2018 14:09
The only rules you must strictly adhere to are 1) don't wear anything that looks like the bride's outfit and 2) don't wear anything that could could get mistaken for as the bride's outfit.
After the above, anything else is a matter of taste and personal style.

Sounds fine... I wore cream trousers and a cream waistcoat, black and cream jacket and hat to a friends wedding and no one batted an eyelid

It’s not like a cotton tshirt it’s like a satin one, long line, helps had the fat rolls

I’d say that’s fine, I’d never where a white/ cream dress, but most men wear white shirts to weddings.
Pursefirst · 17/10/2018 15:03
How long is long-line exactly OP? If its a type of tunic style and satin as well, I would personally wear something else.

I think that sounds fine.
I wouldn’t wear a cream / white dress to a wedding and to be on the safe side I also steer clear of anything with a cream / white base, even if it’s covered in a different coloured pattern.
But trousers and T-shirt are so far removed from “bride territory” I think that’s fine.

Missing a full stop there^^. Hopefully you can decipher it.
Stonebake · 17/10/2018 15:05
Oh no, I was actually right the first time! Ignore me. I’m very tired today.

As long as you don't wear a floor length ivory/cream/white dress whilst holding a bouquet or black with face veil you'll be fine

I wouldn’t op and I wouldn’t have liked it at my wedding but I always get out voted on these threads. As a guest, I’d always err on the side of caution personally.
RatherBeRiding · 17/10/2018 15:21
No one will mistake that outfit for the bride's - I wouldn't bat an eyelid to see a wedding guest wearing that.
diddl · 17/10/2018 15:25
So you're wearing a cream top & checked trousers?
Yeah, you're going to so much like you're pretending to be the bride, Op
liquidrevolution · 17/10/2018 15:31
Can you pop a naice patterned scarf around your shoulders for the ceremony and pics? Will break up the cream somewhat.
Lucked · 17/10/2018 15:31
I think it sounds fine. Can you link to it?
DangletitsMcDougal · 17/10/2018 15:41
Its fine - its head to toe black white or cream that would be bad form.
kateandme · 17/10/2018 15:42
It sounds lovely and perfectly fine keep with that

Neither of your outfits are wedding appropriate in my opinion.
I personally don't wear anything white or cream to weddings because there are so many other colours to choose from - it's the bride's privilege to wear white on the day, give her that respect.

Sounds great. Would be great with a cream or tan trilby/fedora hat.
