- Wedding: October 2012
Hi bees! I’ve never really heard of this before, so I figured I’d look here for any similar experiences. I’m not about to freak out over it, so please don’t think of it that way!
BM’s are all matching in the same shade, same with Groomsmen, and my accessories (shoes, sash, jewelry, etc) are the same color as well. This is also the same color as a lot of the reception and any ceremony decor. So some of the other people involved in the wedding bought the same color stuff and told me about it, which is no big deal, they are excited to be in the wedding and it doesn’t bother me that they are coordinating! Now almost my entire family is wearing that color (and they keep telling me because they think it’s funny), which, no it isn’t a big deal, but half the wedding (it’s mostly family) is going to match everyone. I would never ever tell people what they could or could not wear, so that isn’t a issue, though it is odd to me.
As I’ve said above, my accessories are this color, so while my dress is white, I definitely have a statement sash, matching shoes, and other accessories, and that’s because I love the color and it looks pretty. However, I’m considering switching out my stuff for one of the accent colors. This would depend on the expense, but while I’m not ME-ME-ME (I’m so nervous to walk down the aisle) I would like to feel a little more differentiated/pretty. I know “I’m the bride” and no one will be confused, so that isn’t the problem.
Also, on another note, I’m a little concerned that people on FI’s side might think they were “supposed” to wear a certain color if so many people have intentionally matched. Maybe a farfetched theory, but people have been offended over less. (Not that there is much to do about that anyway).
Has anything like this happened to you, and what do you think about the possibility of switching my own accessories?
