It is important to be respectful of the host’s wishes when attending their event. If you have any questions about the rules, be sure to ask the host.

The Original Poster (OP) took it to the forum, and asked “Am I wrong for wearing a floral dress to a hen party?”. We want to know from you.

One of the girls, asked OP why she was wearing a floral dress when there were clear instructions to wear black only. OP replied that her dress was still black only, it just had a floral print.

WHAT HAPPENED DURING THE PHOTO SESSION?

When they were having group photo takes, one of the girls who organized it seemed annoyed and said that the photos looked odd as everyone is wearing full black and the bride is in the middle wearing colour but with a random floral print taking away attention.

OP CONFIDED IN ANOTHER GIRL

Later OP confided in another girl saying she couldn’t understand why her wearing a floral dress was such a big deal. She also said that it’s just a hen party and it didn’t need to be that strict.

The girl said that it wasn’t a big deal in the grand scheme of things but it also wouldn’t have been a big deal for OP to stick to the rules as black is owned by everyone. 

HOW DID HER ACTIONS SEEM?

Her actions seemed like she was being difficult just for the sake of it, by deliberately choosing a print. Now OP wants to know if she is a jerk for wearing the floral black dress to the hen party.

WHAT DO OTHER PEOPLE THINK?

“Instructions seemed pretty damn clear, and you seem to be the only one who didn’t get it and not follow it, so that’s on you. ‘Wear black’ does not mean ‘oh so as long as the base is black anything goes’.”, said one user.

YOU ARE PRETENDING TO NOT UNDERSTAND

“She definitely got it, she was just trying to feign ignorance. They literally told her the objective was for the colors on the bride to stand out.

IT IS NOT SANE

“No sane human would think a floral dress in black meets that objective. Also taking a moment to give a shout out to the bride, who didn’t make a scene that she (rightfully) could have made over this.”, said another user.
