    I actually just sent out my Save The Dates and put our website on the cards. Then on our website, we have a tab that says, "What to wear to wedding," and it explains that barefeet are welcome, etc......and to please wear shades of champaigne, white, or beige (but please leave the white dress for the bride) ;-)
    I had to tell them now because most people want to do their shopping ahead of time for Jamaica....i.e., they won't be able to buy bathing suits or clothes in these colors in November! I just think it's nice to give a heads up....while being nice but straight forward.

      I also had this idea only I wanted to use blue and pink. Simply because our colors are navy and white and hot pink. I figured all the men wear shades of blue and all the ladies wear shades of pink but see our wedding party is the exact opposite. And my hubby will be wearing either white like me or a combination of the others. My dad and my MOH says that a dress code is ridiculous and too much to ask for but I feel as though we are asking for colors that they should own anyway and it shouldnt be that big of an issue. My dad asked what I would do if someone showed up with a different color on and I told him that if I make it mandatory then Idk bc I dont want them standing out like a sore thumb. Can anyone help me with the wording on how to do this or is this just an idea I should ex out? I really want it!!

        Well crap! Now, I want to do this, too!! I think it sounds like a great idea and gives people an idea of what to wear since we have had this question a ton for our wedding. Its too late to incorporate this into our wedding, but I can't wait to see pics from everyone elses =)

          I don't think you should make it mandatory. Just a strong suggestion.

            So far so good. My guests seem to be really buying into the idea. I was at a 4th of July party with some of the folks that are going to the wedding and I heard a few of them make plans to go shopping for the pink attire that I requested. I think that if your guests feel like they are part of the wedding party they will be more willing to follow the dress code!

              I agree. It also helps to show them pictures of your goal. It helps them understand.

                I love that idea. I think it would make the pictures look great and then no one would wear white!!!
