Hi brides. This may sound confusing. Should non members of the bridal / ushers party like the partners / plus ones where the same colour. To blend in. Eg my bridesmaids are in emerald dress dresses and the ushers are in grey suits and emerald green waist coats. Should say a bridesmaids partner who is not an usher where a grey suit and emerald green to match ? Just because of photos ect? I hope this makes sense.

They don't need to but you could always state your colour scheme and request people wear as close as they can. Just don't be disappointed if they don't as some may struggle to find the colour, be able to buy an new outfit etc. My colour scheme is a dark navy and I'd love for people to wear similar to it for photos etc so I understand :)

No, apart from wedding party guests wear what they want. I personally wouldn't want othet guests to dress in such a way that they blend in with our wedding party tbh

When I was a bridesmaid, my husband wore a tie in the same colour (burgundy), but didn't go for the full waistcoat, etc xx

I would say No, the partners of your bridal party wouldnt be in your photographs really. Unless you are having group shots etc. When i have pictures of me and my bmaids i wont be having their partners in the photo too, they would just be part of the guest group shot.

No. That's taking it a bit too far.

From a Groom perspective...
No. You all want to STAND OUT. Whilst you of course will be dazzling you want to show off the Bridesmaids and the like.

Surely you want your bridal party to stand out? If the partners wear matching outfits then they’ll look like ushers too.

No wouldn't of thought you can stipulate to guests what they can wear, they might already have suits etc and it's expensive enough. Think that's being too much of a perfectionist.

No otherwise people will think they part of the bridal party.

Hi everyone. I personally don’t want the bridesmaids partners or the ushers partners to wear the same colour as the wedding Because I want the wedding party to stand out. But I’m having input by family members saying they should because of photos.

No they should wear what they like. They dint even need to be in the photos with the bridal/groom party

You can't expect people to wear a colour of your choice, a bridesmaids partner for instance may already have a suit & doesntvwant to pay out for one of your choice..just saying

Do you really need to ask? Of course ‘guests’ wear what they’d like, just be happy they’re sharing your day.

UKbride Administrator

No, if you’re not paying for it they can wear whatever they want, your photos will be fine.

I think the bridal party should stand out so their respective other half’s/partners should not match the bridal party.

Guests wear what they like and feel comfortable in. Only your bridesmaids/ushers should be wearing the colour you choose so they stand out. Xx

I think people should be allowed to wear what they want. My H2B was an usher in December and I wore navy too, I don’t look like a bridesmaid nor does it look like I’ve gatecrashed the wedding...

Id say not. I dont want bestmans partner to wear what my flower girls are wearing or to match. I've got everything ready for the main bridal party. May sound harsh but its our wedding and that's how i want it.

Not usually. My sister let my partner wear a purple tie because me and our son were in the wedding,I think he had a boutonniere too but I asked for her permission to do so first and it was clear who was and wasn't in the wedding because those of us involved were upfront and centre

DUH I guess if you want a colour theme throughout the whole wedding yes.. but you leave yourself open to having to pay for colour coordinating outfits.. I say let ur guests wear wat they want to...
