An all white wedding? Actually that sounds pretty cool! Though I don’t know how many guest will cooperate since it is usually taboo to wear white to a wedding. Is this a destination wedding? HOw many people are you planning?

Congrats on the wedding!

Sounds like a great idea to me…if you can get older guests to agree to wear white by all means go for it! Not sure how the songs would work but it sounds like a good plan to me. If I had the money to have a destination wedding in Hawaii I would in a heartbeat so good for you!

That sounds pretty awesome and like something that I haven’t seen before.  I think it will be gorgeous… but you might have a hard time convincing some of your guests to wear white.  Just make sure they really know that they HAVE to show up in white 🙂

Not exactly the same thing but my cousin had everyone wear white to her graduation luncheon (about 45 people) and the pictures came out gorgeous. I though everyone would complain about being told what to wear but everyone seemed to enjoy it.

I think it sounds very pretty, however your guests may be put out (and it isn’t proper etiquette) with being told what to wear.  Though it does sound very pretty.  Is this a destination wedding or do you live in Maui?  If it’s destination than I can see where telling them all to wear white would work better since more than likely all guests would be very close to you and your Fiance.  Good luck wedding planning!

Oh and probably nix the Sundae bar idea if everyone is in white. Those things can get so messy with all the syrups and toppings. I know I have never left one without staining something. Candy buffets are pretty popular right now though and might be a nice alternative. Though if there aren’t any kids invited maybe the ice cream would be fun.

It sounds like it would make for nice pictures, as long as everyone actually does wear white. Do you think any of your guests would be against it? I know for our wedding I would have had a hard time convincing some people to wear white, and they would likely have outright refused (I’m thinking grandmothers, etc.).  

Some people might also be a little put off at being told they’re required to wear a certain colour. You know your guests better than I do though.
