Maybe I'm missing something, but since when did people get engaged and wear white to EVERY single event that they had? Maybe I'm in the wrong, but I have an engagement party this friday for a family member. I wanted to wear a cute white dress w/flowers on it (big flowers, but the dress was definitely white with DEFINITELY colored flowers) and it was unacceptable.
Granted, I did ask, but I wanted to just be polite, more of a "hey, does this dress fit the formality of your party?" kind of way, not "Can I wear this sort of white dress and step on your toes" way.
All the other dresses I have are black, which I don't love wearing in the summer because I like light colors. I'm just here to complain, if I am wrong and this is a real thing, please enlighten me.
