While getting ready for her wedding, a bride found out that one of her guests showed up wearing a white dress, and TikTokers had some interesting suggestions for handling the matter.
When it comes to weddings, the appropriate attire for guests varies. However, one universal wedding wardrobe rule is that unless you’re the bride, you should refrain from wearing white. For the bridal party that TikToker and makeup artist Solis Pho (@solis.pho) was working on, this piece of wedding etiquette caused quite a bit of drama. The bride discovered that the groom’s brother’s date showed up wearing a white dress.
At the beginning of the clip, Pho says she just finished up working a wedding where quite a bit of drama occurred over wardrobe.
“As I was doing makeup on the bride, she was getting calls and text messages, and she gets a Ring [camera] alert on her phone,” Pho says.
She explains that the bridal party was getting ready for the wedding at an Airbnb while the groomsmen got ready at the couple’s home, which has a Ring video doorbell.
Pho says the bride’s phone alert showed guests arriving at the house. “It’s the groom’s brother wearing a suit and his girlfriend wearing a white dress.”
Once the wardrobe faux pas came to her attention, the bride became so upset that Pho says she had to stop putting on her eyeliner because she was shaking so hard.
“Who doesn’t know the rule now that you don’t wear white to a wedding unless you are the bride?” Pho asks incredulously.
After everyone, including Pho, looked at the footage, the possibility was mentioned that the dress might be a mint or pale blue color.
“She’d be wearing red wine.”
Unfortunately, that hope fizzled when someone at the house confirmed that the dress was white.
While Pho has heard stories in the past about guests breaking the wedding wardrobe rule, she thought people knew better.
Pho says everyone went into overdrive trying to console the bride, concluding, “If anyone should be ashamed, it should be her, who clearly doesn’t know wedding guest etiquette.”
Viewers had a lot to say in response to Pho’s question about how they would handle the situation.
“Security would be armed with Super Soakers full of red wine to attack,” one user joked.
“She’d be wearing red wine,” echoed one TikToker.
“This is why you have a designated wine spiller,” one viewer mentioned.
Judging by TikTokers’ responses, wine has more than one function at weddings.
