I need some help convincing my friend/bridesmaid that she's being ridiculous.
My friend is getting more into sewing lately and has started making her own clothes. She messaged me the other day saying that she bought some robin's egg blue linen to make herself a dress to wear to my shower. Her husband suggested that it was rude to wear a shade so close to the wedding color (BM dresses are Alfred Sung "Fresh"), because I might want to wear it myself, and she wanted to ask my permission. I told her "I am wearing an aqua dress (Shoshanna "Judith" dress from RTR), so we might look like a two-headed aqua blob in pictures together if the shades are really close but otherwise... why would I care?"
She did not seem convinced. Showed me the fabric the other day, and I assured her it was totally different than the color I was wearing (hers is far more blue), but even if it was exactly the same, she can wear whatever she wants.
Last night, she said she was still concerned about the color, and that she's also worried she won't finish her dress in time or fit it properly but is worried what else she will have as a backup because her favorite dress is white lace overlaid onto aqua. I said "oh! yes! that dress is super cute on you." She said that it's rude to wear white to someone else's wedding shower. I told her she was ridiculous, that nobody will get confused, think she's the bride, and start giving her my presents. She's still worried people will side-eye her for it, even if I don't, and says I'm being "bridechilla" about it and overly accommodating and most people aren't that nice about things like this.
So what say you, Knotties? Is she being ridiculous, or would you judge a guest wearing the wedding color and/or white to another person's shower?
Edited because TK ate my paragraphs.
