has anyone put a dress code on their wedding invitations ??
Not yet but I may put dress code as formal black tie
I am getting married in 2019 and my theme is black and white I am asking all my day time guests to dress in black and white x
No because some people may not be comfortable with the "theme" like my theme was red and black, my sisters was grey and hot pink... i know a few members of our family wouldnt of been comfortable in pink and grey (her theme) but would have been in red or black... depends what dresa code your aftee i suppose xx
We get married in 2020 and we're having a masquerade theme so only stipulation is for guests to wear a mask! 😊
I would never consider it. It's terribly bridezillaish
I think it would depend on what your request is. I've heard someone say they aren't allowing men to wear black suits. I think this is unreasonable as people may not be able to go out and get a new suit. They personally might prefer a black suit.
We just asked for no jeans and no causal wear xx
No, quite frankly my guests could come butt naked and i wouldn't care
No I didn't as there was to many colours to try to intra gate as bridesmaids were grey and I was red and ivory as was my mini bride
I'm having a Halloween wedding this year, I have stated it's not a fancy dress event - it would make a lot of the older guests feel uncomfortable as I don't think they would like to and ppl don't always put the effort into it that it would need to make it look amazing either
Yes. Roaring 20s - black tie for men, cocktail dresses for ladies.
I don't think she means a colour I think she means smart casual or formal etc
I think most guests know how to dress for a wedding!
This is abit ridiculous! You can't state what people wear to go to your wedding. Let them wear what they want you will be too busy to care.
The ppl that are invited to the day are my nearest and dearest and my day wouldn't be the same without them so they can wear whatever they want as long as they are there xx
We'll be asking our guests to wear colourful casual clothes. We're having a festival-style wedding so the dress code will be no formal suits, hats or fascinators. The groom won't be wearing a suit and I won't be wearing a big white dress so if everyone else dresses like they are going to ascot it will look a bit daft!
Never, people should be able to wear what they are comfortable in and what they want. Some people may have a 'best dress' 'best suit' in their wardrobe and simply don't have the funds to go out and buy something which someone is stipulating.
We've put smart dress because my sister in law has a penchant for leopard print leggings
No and I don't think it's right
We asked for people to wear a tartan as I wanted lots of different kinds for photos. They didn't have to but most of the men had kilts or tartan ties! x
We put formal just so people new to wear a jacket instead of just a shirt and tie xx
No I won't. I don't think it's fair in guests to do that.
Hi Erica I just want the women to not wear lots of white. Do you know there is a wedding fair in the Merthyr football club next Sunday 24thSeptember? :)
We just asked that people wear smart dress, no jeans
We didn't, we have a really mixed group of friends and encouraged them to all be themselves. It created a great atmosphere and all our friends have said how much they enjoyed it and how relaxed they all felt xx
Yes we did. We had a 'black tie' dress code xx
I asked all the ladies to wear a hat or a fascinator they all did & we had some great photos of us all together X
When I went to one it said dress your best and go all out
I didn't but did have a guest turn up in jeans & a T-shirt which shocked me! Most others wore suits and nice dresses!
I'm asking no gaudy colours due to colour scheme I don't want it all to clash x
We are having a BBQ in the back garden for our reception so people would probably be uncomfortable in high heels and hats or fascinators! As a courtesy to our guests we are suggesting it is a bo-ho theme and we would like them to be comfortable so anything goes. (I fully expect to see lots of flower head-dresses, flowing dresses and jeans!)
were asking guests to come in autumnal colours and either smart casual or dressy what ever they are comfortable in but wanted everyone to be in that spectrum of colours for photos and in a small venue someone in bright pink would stick out like a sore thumb in our venue😁 had no problem from guests requesting that too
thanks all, ill just state formal/casual dress code on the invite
I put no black or white on my invites . As I want a summery wedding photos . A few people have complained but my thoughts is it's my wedding and I'm not expecting everyone to turn up in suits I couldn't care less if they are in suits or not can wear jeans shorts whatever aslong as they not in black and white
I think it finishes the outfit to wear a hat.
Im getting married in May 2018. My colors are purple n gold but am asking guests to wear any colour red carpet event. I just enjoy seeing people all dressed up for us.
It's a wedding I doubt people are gonna turn up in a track suit
People can wear what they want! Some people
Don't like to wear dresses or don't want to wear formal trousers that's up to them. As long as they look smart
I didn't but if you make it friendly/fun/nicely put I don't see why not!
Are we all dressing as witches then
No, and it's caused a huge fall out. As many make guests are wearing the same shade blue suit as my H2B and groomsmen as is now this seasons colour . When we approached them they rightfully stated we didn't out a dress code on invites so can't expect people to buy new.
Ours is 5 weeks today (eeeeek) and we haven't! People have asked us colour schemes and stuff but we really aren't fussed what people wear as long as they dress up! Some people will buy new stuff, some people won't and I would never want anyone to feel they had to or feel uncomfortable!! 😊
But obviously if there are things you do or want your guests to wear you should probably say on the invitations as it gives people enough time and stuff 😊
I went to a wedding three weeks ago? Luckily the dress code was fat unfashionable
Men. It was a dream
Yes- we asked for shoulders to be covered in the religious ceremony out of respect.
Yes! Black Tie and I'm expecting everyone to come dressed in that dress code too!
My sister in law requested hats or fasinators and it looked great
Ours was 'fancy dress optional but encouraged'
We got married on hallowe'en
