can you ask guests to wear a certain attire I'm doing a black and white wedding with me in white and bridesmaids in black so was thinking of asking guests to Wear black or would it be too much
I think it's nice some times having s theam, so having everyone in black would be fun
I've not been to a wedding with a theme but I've seen them on tv and always thought it was a nice idea. Your guests are going for you and I'm sure will be happy to get involved in it x
All the guests in black may look a little like a funeral, but maybe a black tie theme so the ladies can choose a cocktail dress of any colour x
I went to a wedding that was black and white themed but we didnt see that memo on the invite and turned up in blue and red 😂 be careful how u word it if u do as we totally missed it! But everyone else turned up in the correct attire, u can get some really nice posh dresses in black and white and it didnt look like a funeral xx
YES ...... we asked all our guests to wear black & white, all guests joined in will some women saying .... oh I have a gorgeous dress I don't get to wear much I can wear that...... bm wore fuchsia pink
We had a black and white wedding and all our guests wore black and white.
Just ask for a dress code to go with your theme
Won't your bridesmaids blend in with the guests?
You can ask them but be prepared for some guests not do wear what you would like them too x
we had a 1950 sorta wedding we put in the invites if anyone would like to join with the theme they are more than welcome
I kinda think let the guests wear what they want many occur costs with weddings travel accomodation etc so putting pressure on for certain colours outfits might be the difference between them attending and not attending. True its your wedding your day but you cant tell everyone what to do or wear unfortunately.
At the end of the day, it's your wedding so if you want a theme go for it! 80% of women have a black dress in their wardrobe anyway :-)
Some people may not wear black but it's not the end of the world if some are different.
Maybe some white flowered corsages for your bridesmaids would be nice so they stand out a bit :-)
Having a theme or choosing a dress code that fits the formality of your wedding is one thing, but telling your guests what colour to wear is just ridiculous
Most people have something black in their wardrobe, and would be please to wear it instead of some unusual colour that they would have to go and buy
Mines black and white I'm in white my bridesmaid is in black my flower girl is in black and white. Groom and groomsmen black and white. Dress code is black and white. Table linen is black and white even the sweets for sweet cart is black and white. IT will look stunning
My cousin had a black and white themed wedding and the guests wore the black and white theme x
Maybe your bridesmaids would be hard to pick out if all the guests are also in black. Maybe go for black tie. So men would be black suit and tie and white shirt and women would be glam x
You can but ask.. don't be surprised though if not everyone goes for it.
I was the opposite...I wore black and bridesmaids ivory...I didn't want everyone wearing those colours as I wanted us to stand out x
Or go the other way and say everyone wear colour so you stand out?
Theme is a great idea though x
Sure I've asked my guests not to wear black or white
