Consider the theme of the wedding. If peach is the colour motif and you are not part of the bridal entourage, try to avoid dressing up in the same hue.

White signifies purity which is why it is the choice colour at weddings. Even if you feel like donning on a white evening gown, try to be respectful of the bride if she is dressed in this colour unless you want to be mistaken as the newlywed.
