(Closed) Showers with dress codes

  • poll: What do you think of showers with dress codes?

    Fine by me!

    It's asking too much. I may not have the right clothes and will have to shop for that AND a gift.

    I show up to showers dressed as Wonder Woman.

    I’ve been to a shower where all the guests were asked to wear pink. It was a pretty casual affair, a potluck at the MOH’s house. All I had was a pink cami so i wore that under my cardigan. Another guest wore all black but then had a hot pink scarf on. And some guests didn’t wear pink at all because they forgot. =P

    @bijou214:Yeah, I think that’s kind of an awkward situation to put your guest in, cuz some of them WILL forget, and then feel really dumb!

    I would be much more ok with it if the invitation empasized “wear *something* pink” instead of like “you must dress completely in pink,” which is kind of what I got the impression of when I first read the post (although looking back, I suppose not.)

    I’ve never heard of that, but pink seems fairly general and easy? I second the idea of seeing if you can borrow something from a friend.

    @Sking: You don’t have to wear ALL pink do you? I was invited to a wedding shower where we wore hats. I thought it was fun. I also was invited to a baby shower where pink was the color. I wore an all white dress with pink accessories.

    @Sking: I think it is fine to ask, but I think you have to be willing to take no for an answer.  If I don’t have something that fits, I probably won’t buy something new. 

    I would go in whatever you want.  No one can force adults to wear clothes they don’t want to.

    I think it’s a cute idea… I doubt its mandatory though and I’m sure some guests will still wear whatever they wanted.  In this case, I would find a cute pink top to wear with a black skirt

    I have a pink Super Girl comic shirt….. you think that would work? BWAHAHAHA

    Really though I don’t think it’s alot to ask and yea some won’t follow it but I think they’re just missing the fun of it…

    We attended a bday party that was a formal black & white only… no red as only the birthday girls were in red…. It was a lot of fun!
