Do you think this is tacky???
My sister is my Maid/Matron of Honor and she told her boyfriend who is not in the wedding party to buy a shirt that matches her dress. Now our groomsmen will all be in white shirts with blush/lavender color roses to compliment the girls dresses. My sister’s Maid/Matron of Honor dress is blush with a lavender sash. Now, I didn’t know about this, I only found out from my fiance and from reading about him buying the matching shirt on Facebook.
Thanks for your opinions

Are you asking whether you can tell your sister that she CAN’T tell her bf what to wear?
If so, then no, you can’t do that. I don’t know why she would want her boyfriend to match (semi-weird), but chances are, he’s not going to be the only one wearing a shade of pink or purple at your wedding who is not in the wedding party. No one will mistake him for a groomsmen.

No, I wouldn’t do that. I just thought the idea of him matching her seemed very prom like but she does have a very young mind set and plus she never went to her own prom. Maybe she’s wants to create a prom memory since she never had one. LOL But thanks for your advice 🙂

She knows people will be taking pics and probably just wants a nice pic w/ her bf. I wouldn’t sweat it unless he rents a tux.

@bellarain: Maybe he could buy a matching tie? that would be cute and more appropriate.

I dont really see what the problem is. If the groomsmen are in white shirts and he wears a shade that matches her dress, he wont look like a groomsman. I dont really think that looks “prom”, there are a lot of couples that do a matching look for many occasions. If they have been together a long time, she’s probalby hoping he could be in at least one of the family photos and wants to make sure that he doesnt look out of place. If it really bothers you, talk to her and find out why she is concerned about what he is wearing. I just wonder- why does it bother you what he wears?
