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

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
