Hm. I’ve never tried to wear the wedding colors to a wedding. But they’re clearing doing it because they think they should, so just go with it and maybe it’ll make for some really cool pictures. Now if you have a guy show up in a purple suit – then I’ll be really impressed!

It’s not something that I’ve seen done – intentionally – at weddings I’ve attended. 

I did buy a blue dress to wear to a dear friend’s wedding only to find out days later that her BMs would be wearing navy and her wedding colors were navy and the silvery blue I was wearing.  I felt badly, sent her a picture of the dress and offered to find something else.  She said she was glad I would coordinate, since she wanted me in some of her formal pictures – but I think she’d have been annoyed if half her guests showed up in blue.

Me, on the other hand… I think it’s weird, but “meh.” If someone goes out of their way to pick something special to wear in celebration of a major event in my life, then I’m going to see it as an expression of love.  Even if I think it’s a little odd.

Yes, i think its weird too and Ive also had that question. I just told them which color the bridal party was wearing and indicated that they can wear the same color, but pls in another shade. I really like my bridal party to stand out 🙂 On a similar note: I went to a wedding yesterday and one of the guests was also wearing the same exact blue dress as the BMs….:(

@StL.Ashley:  that’s so strange to me – when I get invited to a wedding I DON’T match the wedding colors – I want it to be clear I’m not in the Bridal Party

Same here! I guess you could nicely suggest that it’s just for the bridal party and that guests don’t have to worry about it?
