Ask all guests to wear my colors

Recommended Posts

i've seen all-white weddings, and ones where everyone was asked to wear a shade of blue, and both looked wonderful in pics. i think you may run into a problem only because your colors are so bright (works much easier with neutrals) and many people don't seem to care for orange or yellow at all (i found this out the hard way ... you'll notice my colors are similar ... i LOVE them and think they look so tropical, but i heard so many people say things like "i hate orange" or "i look terrible in yellow" ... i stuck more with the dark red myself). good luck! i think it can look pretty amazing if you pull it off!

Great question! I was thinking about this as well. I figure that if our wedding group is going to be small, it would look great if everyone was wearing a similar palette of colours. I think that the pictures would look great because it would look like everyone was part of the wedding party, just not the BMs, GMs etc. My first thought was to ask everyone to wear colours in a seashell palette (i.e. ivory, light brown, pale pink etc.) so it would basically just be neutral colours.


Like the OP, I was wondering if anyone else has tried this? I think it would be cool but is it asking too much of your guests? I wouldn't want to set myself up for disappointment on my wedding day if someone didn't show up in an approved colour =) But, it's going to be hot in Jamaica anyway so why wouldn't you want to wear light colours?


Any feedkback/experiences on this? How would you feel if you were asked to do this for a wedding?

Whilst in the dominican a few weeks ago we watched a few weddings and i said then i would ask my guests to dress with my colours in mind.There was a lot of older women in black and white and brown tones all the younger guests were in hot colours and they added to the atmosphere.I also think you can get away with this my saying smart casual, and maybe no black.I think it adds to the excitement especially for the ladies anyway x

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
