    My ex was a wedding photographer and he went to a beach wedding with less than 15 guests where the bride and groom were models and had asked all of the guests to wear all white.  The photos were gorgeous!  Great idea!

    I think it’s fine to ask, but I love your purple petticoat and think that if you asked the two ladies to wear purple, it’d look great, too!

    White to a beach wedding sounds ok to me :). Love the purple in your dress!

    I think purple would be cute and way more rewearable to other weddings if they will be buying something new.

    Perhaps you should be the only one in color. Makes you special, adds a pop and give that sexy smooth look in pictures.

    I think it is about what the BRIDE wants – if you want your guests to wear white, than they should!

    I could care less, but not much less.

    i wouldnt mind in terms of “its a no no” as obviously what the bride wants

    but, unless its an uber casual cotton sundress id never be able to wear it again

    I think it is awesome. A girl I know got married in Ibiza, all her guests were wearing white or shades of white and it was beautiful

    Under normal circumstances, no, I’d never wear white to a wedding – even a beach wedding. As a wedding photographer, I’m super concious of what others wear to weddings. I can spot a guest in white with my eyes closed. 😉 That said, if the couple asked for everyone to wear it, I would certainly oblige.

    It’s something I wouldn’t do unless asked, but since it’s a beach wedding, I can see where you’re coming from and I’d have not problem accomodating you if you asked.
