I’d be really annoyed at anyone telling me what color to wear to their wedding . Just let people come in what they want! It will all turn out beautifully.

Its your wedding and you can plan and ask however you want. None of us bees will be there anyway, so it doesnt matter what we think , just plan your wedding and have  a great time planning, Have fun

I agree with the PP. But, since you asked, I would be annoyed as a guest to be told what color to wear.

I agreed that I’d be really annoyed. Since I am also pale, I avoid anything white/tan/beige at all costs so I’d have to go out and get something specifically for the wedding which I would likely never wear again because I do not do neutral colors. Honestly, as much as I love weddings, I think that’s asking a bit much and unless you were my super close friend/family, I’d probably just ignore the request.

@KevinsWife:  couldn’t this be said towards every post on this site?


OP, I think a pale blue dress would be lovely and purple could work with that.  I don’t like the idea of telling guests what they should wear, however.

Wear whatever you want for your wedding. But, be gracious enough to extend the same courtesy to your guests and don’t try to dictate/limit what colors they wear.

What do you think you will gain by guests wearing those specified colors?  What is your end goal for that request?

I think it’s weird to tell anyone what to specifically wear to your wedding if they are not in your wedding party.

People have been asking me what they should wear to my weddding?  I get it if it was a formal wedding but they even want to know what colors to wear.  I don’t get it…why?  I want them to wear what you feel comfortable in, what you feel looks good.  It is a wedding but far be it for me to tell people what they should and should not wear. Don’t worry, your colors will come together nicely and it won’t clash if that is what you’re worried about. I would love the look of an all white and nuetral party but oly if it was themed that way for everyone, not just guests.

I wouldn’t be THAT annoyed, but if I had to go out and specifically buy an outfit that fits your requirements rather than one of the 8 wedding appropriate dresses, and DH’s suits/shirts we already have in my closet… you can bet that cost is coming straight off the top of your gift.

I wouldn’t be totally annoyed(maybe a little if I didnt have anythign on hand). I think if it’s important to you then go ahead. Perhaps just requesting neutral colours(not specific neutrals) might go over better. You may want to make it a light hearted request vs a demand/order.

A request wouldnt bother me but being ordered/forced to wear something to attend would seriosuly annoy me!
