I’d wear something white underneath and then say you’re staring to sweat and don’t want to ruin the pictures and your make up, and take it off and then just put it on for posed pics. It won’t matter if the photog takes a pic of you putting on your makeup and you’re wearing a plain white shirt!
The point of a button down is so you don’t have to pull anything over your head after hair and makeup and before putting on your dress so as not to ruin them. Doesn’t a white T shirt defeat the purpose?
I think the whole trend is silly, but would not see this as a hill to die on. If the shirts are loose and cotton, I’m guessing it won’t be as bad as you think.
I had to look up ‘Oxford ‘ shirt thinking it must be something distinctive, but l see it is just a long sleeved shirt, so unless it is partcularly nasty material it should be fine, and if it is huge and loose it won’t be too hot to wear.
Being made to dress in getting ready costumes is, imho, a silly trend, but sitting around in a big shirt and leggings will be ok on the day l think, esp if you use plenty of that anti chafe stuff.
Are you sure you don’t want to politely voice your concerns? like “Oh wow pictures would look so cute with us in matching shirts! Is it possible to make sure the ones we get aren’t itchy and hot like most oxford shirts? I get terrible rashes from most oxford shirts and I’d hate to be all red and blotchy for the photos in our dresses” (I think they do have softer cotton ones btw). I doubt the bride would think your complaining too much
