I’d get two pieces  so I could actually wear one or both again with  other things .

Heaven knows what  my h. would wear  . A white shirt  yes, but I dunno I could get him into white pants . Or want to , come to  that.

I’m having an all white wedding and want my guests to wear white but it’s a small wedding of 100 and I would be upset if someone decided to wear a light pink color because I plan to wear a peach or blush wedding dress because I don’t think a bride should have to wear white it’s her day and if you don’t want to wear white I would definitely tell the bride she made a dress code for a reason so you should talk to her maybe she’s going to wear a different color dress and you don’t want to outshine the bride that’s why she said for eveyone to wear the same color so you can blend in with the crowd.

honeymuffin:  I can tell you are believer in the old adage” it’s all about the bride”!

Please indulge my curiosity and explain how havng everyone wear the same, pale colour (irrespeictive of their personal tastes and preferences) will get your marriage off to a better start.

What will you do if someone turns up in pink (thereby rendering you no longer unique)? Will they be asked to leave?  What will you do if guests find they cannot comply with your exteremly specific wardrobe request?  Would you prefer they stay home rather than compromise the aesthetics of your day?

waanderluster:  That’s a pretty dress, but I have to say I would not be pleased if a cousin attended my wedding with her entire leg exposed, and I would never wear anything like it to anyone’s wedding. Not because I’m a prude, but because it’s impolite to wear such attention-grabby clothing to someone else’s wedding.

I’d be tempted to wear this, just out of spite (white pants of course lol), but honestly, I’d just decline and lose a lot of respect for the bride And groom.

Many women purchase a new outfit for a special occasion anyway, right? So if the new outfit needs to be white to comply with the bride’s wishes, so be it! I’ve attended numerous all white affairs and they were quite elegant which is most likely what the bride is hoping for. We all want our weddings to have a certain feel or atmosphere….our tastes may just be different and that is fine too.  At the end of the day, we all have choices in life. You can attend the wedding and comply w/ the brides’ wishes or not attend at all.  Just my 2 cents for what that’s worth (oh,j ust 2 cents)!

So my husband would have to buy white slacks, or a suit, and tan underwear? Nope …Sorry, we’re not photo props. If the bride would have said shades of blue, which most people have in their closets, I would comply. However, I can see us “politely declining” the all white and sending a gift, regardless.

While I think asking your guests to wear all white (or all any color) is utterly ridiculous, if a couple has decided on certain parameters for their wedding, I think you should either comply or skip it. If I don’t like the “rules” someone has in place (be it a wedding or any other event), I simply don’t go. I wouldn’t just go and ignore their wishes or request/demand they change them. A check by “will not attend” makes this a non issue.

honeymuffin:  I’m sure some people will come in white as asked. For those guests who don’t want to spend the money, are you ok with them potentially staying home then? I’d rather have my friends and family there in whatever than have them stay home because they can’t/won’t abide by the dress code. Just honestly curious. 🙂

How about brides stop trying to dictate what attire their guests can wear.  Your guests are not props for your wedding.
