Hi Bees! My fiance & I are getting married on the beach in Mexico next month- can’t wait!! We only have 4 guests, his brother & his wife, and my brother & his girlfriend. They all wanted to know what to wear & my FI wants everyone to match since we are not doing bridesmaids/groomsmen and there are only 4 of them anyway. The guys will be in short sleeve white button ups with light grey/silver pants & my dress is below. We were thinking about what to ask our 2 female guests to wear since they are asking and we are pretty much decided on white. My brothers gf said she thought it was a no-no but she is happy to wear white if we want her too (and was happy it would be nice & cool as well). But my soon to be sister in law is more traditional- when I told her she just responded with “are you sure, most brides want to be the only one wearing white. You should think about it more”….
Now I’m worried she will feel uncomfortable wearing white, which I didn’t really think of. Would you be uncomfortable if you were asked to wear white to a beach wedding with only 4 guests? I thought it was pretty common for beach weddings to be white themed?? I don’t think anyone is going to be confusing who is & isn’t the bride, and my wedding dress is def. got alot more going on that just being a white dress…

- Wedding: November 2013 - St. Augustine Beach, FL
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.

My worry with purple is that there are sooo many shades & I REALLY dislike most purples except dark purples. Dark colors on a beach in July doesn’t sounds like alot of fun….

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 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.
