OK I got a txt message from one of my closest friends that asked if she could wear a black dress because she had been shopping and seen nothing she would wear to an afternoon wedding
My response was to wear whatever makes you feel beautiful and that my suggestion is wear something that you would wear to KY Derby or English Garden Party.
So I kind of dodged the question because I was surprised that I actually would really rather people not wear black. I feel so stupid though and I know if she had shown up in a black dress it would not have phased me at all . . .
So do you care if your guests wear black?

i don’t care if they wear black becasue on a daily basis i dress in all black. Whatever they are comfortable to party in i’m fine with ^_^
I heard someone say your not suppose to wear red becasue it pulls attention away from the bride, but i havn’t heard that your not suppose to wear black o_o. i can see how it would be kind of out of place at a garden party though.

My bridesmaids are wearing little black cocktail dresses of their choice, so clearly I don’t mind. But even if they were in a different color, I really wouldn’t mind my guests wearing black, Its not like they are trying to overtly disapprove of my wedding. If they were, I hope they would show their discontent in a less passive-aggressive manner.

I honestly don’t mind black at weddings and I am glad that people are starting to embrace it more for all events.
I would mind women wearing all white, that to me is a no-no.

No, in NYC it’s very common to wear black to weddings. I have felt underdressed at times wearing color!

Ha, both my mom and one of my best friends wore all black to my wedding. It didn’t bother me in the slightest; hell, my mom actually wore black to her OWN wedding when she married my stepdad. (It had some colored accents and didn’t look like a funeral or anything!) I think it’s just a classy dress-up color.
One of my fave pics of me and my mom:

Just a brief comment: “I could care less” means you care. It’s “I couldn’t care less.”
I prefer that people don’t wear black, but it’s not that big of a deal.

No not at all. I tried to convince both my mom and my Future Mother-In-Law to wear black, but both didn’t want to appear to be sad. So no black for either of them.

Ha my apologies to both of you – I did not catch that I did that. Guess I was too distracted by visions of LBD at my afternoon spring wedding 🙂 It is fixed!

Nope, I really wouldn’t care. My BM’s are going to be in black, so as long as my guests don’t show up in the same dress I couldn’t care less.

I wouldn’t be offended but I do think it would look out of place considering we’re having an outdoor lunchtime reception in SoCal. Having said that, I was trying to convince my mother the other day that if she couldn’t find anything else, she could wear a black skirt with the blue jacket she’s wearing, and she would have none of it. “I am not wearing black to your wedding!” Um, OK Mom. 🙂

Hah! My mom said the same thing. 🙂

Apparently, I missed an important memo somewhere. I was never under the impression that it was unacceptable to wear black to a wedding.
