I know you all will appreciate this.
Received a voicemail from a boy guest (side note – he had to be chased to get his RSVP past deadline and then he RSVP’d for him and his girlfriend who was not invited but we had space so oh well) that his girlfriend wants to know what color the bridesmaids dresses are so she can match.
Um no thanks! I had to laugh.

You know whats crazy my daughter in law swears this is what you do. My son mentioned in passing that his wife wanted to know the exact shade of brown and burnt orange i was using so she could get her outfit. I explained that she didn’t need to match and he said she does this for everywedding they go to. I laughed soo hard and explained how you shouldn’t do that that the colors are to differentiate the wedding party from every one else etc etc. LOL

Hmm I don’t think there is a problem with this. My mom, FMIL, aunts, cousins etc. all wanted to know the wedding colors so they could match their attire. Maybe my family is a little more obsessive about photos than the rest, but I’m pretty sure everyone is at least going to be wearing a complimentary shade or color to our wedding. This doesn’t seem strange to me at all. I usually try to somewhat match or coordinate when I attend a wedding. If the wedding colors are red maybe I’ll wear a black dress with red shoes and accessories. You get the idea.

Haha that is great!
What did you say? I think I would be so taken aback that I wouldn’t know what to say!

REally? I’ve never though to do something like that.

Really? Why would a random person want to match the bridal party colors.

@mrs.peters.to.be: i wouldnt mind only family matching since well there practically part of the wedding but only if its close family
andbody else as of friends no i have been asked that too and i have answered telling them of the color pallet to our wedding but not what everyone is wearing.

That made me LOL! I can understand when a family member or friend who is helping out wants to coordinate, but a complete stranger is a bit silly to me. However, after looking at some pp’s, it looks like this might be customary for some.

i can see why family members want to match, i.e. MOB and MOG but having guests match the BMs is weird. i actually had a friend who wore a similar color dress as my BMs and she told me she was embarrased by it.

pick the ugliest shade of the color that is totally oposite of you BM dresses and make her wear it lol

Tell her the wrong color! If she says anything, tell her you changed the color at the last minute and totally forgot to inform her!

that’s strange! i’ve asked bridesmaids or people in the know about dress length so i match the event formality before, but color is a totally weird thing to match!

Seriously???? At least she doesn’t want to wear white and a veil!

That’s so weird – if it’s family, that’s one thing (although not my personal preference) but some random person’s date – no way!
Tell her a color that is totally different from your BM dresses / wedding colors.
