I watched some of Prince Joachim and Marie Cavallier's wedding. A lot of guests wore black and creme colours...not entirely white, but almost.

how inappropriate is it to wear a dress that doesn't correspond to a wedding's "official" color scheme?

Because the ceremony will be outside, you should stick with earth colors; yellow ocher or chestnut come to mind. There's plenty of resources (websites, books, etc.) with lists of earth colors, so depending on the time you have to decide on a dress, they could prove useful.

What is the color scheme of the wedding, do you know? That could also be helpful in deciding.

Not at all, unless you're in the wedding party or a mother or grandmother of the bride or groom ...

Maybe it's just an American thing ...

My aunt wore a white lace dress to my sister's wedding ... it was actually whiter than the bride's dress, which was ivory (it was originally my mother's dress) She is also not a small woman, so there was a large expanse of white lace in all the family photos, and it wasn't the bride ... trust me when I tell you it was not a good look ...

^ It really depends on the formality of the individual wedding ... there's a great deal of variation. What does the invitation say? If it doesn't specify something for the men to wear (like black tie or white tie), I'd think you're OK. (If you're going to be uncomfortable if you're dressed differently, you could bring a jacket & leave it in the car if you'll have one ...)

^ If you can arrange to be in the wedding party again, someone else will decide for you

luckily i have not been to very many weddings. i don't really believe in that institution. at the last one i wore an issey miyake suit made of crinkled dark red corduroy and my date wore a sky blue tux. the bride's mother's reaction was, "hmm...have you spent a lot of time in europe?" which i think was her euphemism for "are you gay?" maybe vermont wasn't the right location to premiere that miyake suit :|
