One of the big decisions you have to make when planning a wedding is whether you’re going to have a theme or a dress code.
This can be something as simple as smart casual, formal or relaxed – or you could go all out and have a huge theme such as Disney dresses.
One bride-to-be has chosen a very untraditional theme – she wants everyone else to be in white, while she and the immediate wedding party are in black.
She also had the unusual idea that people could wear their old wedding dresses, after one of her sisters said she wishes she could wear her’s every day. However, this hasn’t gone down well with everyone.

Taking to a popular Reddit forum, the 26-year-old explained that she is getting married in two years, and that her own personal style is “very dark”.
She added: “My idea for my wedding is to have my fiancé, our son, my nieces, and myself in all black and have the rest of the party in white.”
After speaking about the idea of people being able to wear their old gowns with her 27-year-old sister, she explained: “We both loved the idea and thought that if people still had their wedding dresses they could wear them to my wedding as long as they were white (or any variation of white). Most of my bridal party is also married and I know all of their dresses are white because I attended their weddings.”
However, her 24-year-old sister “hates” the idea because she is the only one in the bridal party that isn’t married.
She added: “She has been engaged for four years and her and her fiancé are always breaking up so she doesn’t have a dress.”

Despite offers to help find her a dress, she is “still p***ed off” because she feels like her sister is “excluding her”.
During an argument, the bride-to-be told her sister: “I’m offering to help you feel pretty and not left out and you’re still mad because you and your loser boyfriend can’t stay together long enough to pick wedding colours let alone actually get married.”
She knew she was wrong in saying that, but she still doesn’t think she should change the theme of her wedding to accommodate her sister. They now haven’t spoken in a week.
In the comment section most people agreed that she wasn’t in the wrong because she didn’t say the theme was specifically wedding dresses.

One person said: “It’s not like you came up with the idea solely to exclude your sister, the only reason she’s upset is because not being married is a sore spot for her.
“And honestly, on again off again relationships never work out, if she wants to get married she’d probably have a better chance if she dumps him and finds someone else.”
Another added: “It doesn’t have to be a wedding dress, that’s just an option. I guarantee that there will be others who don’t have a dress or who no longer fit into their dress or whatever. There are awesome white dresses out there that aren’t wedding dresses.”
