I am not aware of that being a tradition….. I think they just feel the need to blend in with the balloons.

I’ve never heard of that being a tradition. My shower was a total surprise so even *I* wasn’t wearing my colors.

But I guess it could be a thing!

There were really pretty cupcakes and cocktail napkins in my wedding colors, though. 🙂

I don’t think it’s a tradition but I think some people just like “blending in with the balloons”. I think it’s nice to complement the color scheme but no, I don’t think it’s necessary to be the exact color. I had friends and family say they dressed to match the invitation though. LOL

I have never heard of this either. Then again, where I come from, your shower is usually a surprise. So you really can’t pick a certain color.

@Ennie:  around here yes it’s done, and the bride to be wears a with or light colors outfit.

I don’t think this is a tradition. Bridal showers themselves are not really a tradition, from my background. (as in, people have heard of them, but don’t see them as necessary).

I never heard of this, but it sounds like they’re just really excited and getting into the theme.  I think it’s fine to wear purple – everyone will know you’re the bride!

I have seen this at some parties… not necessarily the wedding colors, but often the hosts will wear something that kind of goes with the colors/theme of the shower. At my friend’s Alice in Wonderland themed party, she wore a light blue dress to represent Alice & all the bridesmaids wore colors to represent different characters (sister in black & red w/a heart necklace; bm in flowy light green dress for the caterpillar, etc).

Never heard of it. Spin off question – is the bride supposed to wear white to the shower? Someone told me this once.

I don’t think its necessary but it will make any pictures from th shower look coordinated.
