    Hello Ladies,

     

    I will be Mrs. Hemmings on 11/26/11.  We are getting married in Dreams Palm Beach, Punta Cana.

     

    I've always loved the idea of having an all white affair. We chose to have our reception on the beach under the stars.

     

    Do you think it would be too much to ask our guests to dress in all white?

     

    Would that be impossing?

     

    I saw some pics on the wed and the reception pics look amazing.

     

    Please share your thoughts...

      I honestly don't think it is...I would have no problem. I would like my guests to wear white also. I went to a black and white wedding (I wore black) and had no problems.

        I am doing an all white wedding ceremony and reception.

         

        I absolutely fell in love with the idea after seeing a photo shoot from Riviera Maya based photographer Company, Del Sol.

        You can view the shoot here. http://delsolphotography.com/blog/content/galleries/?gal=298Most amazing wedding photo shoot I have ever seen.

         

        When I first told my Mother and FI about the idea, they both seemed a little confused as to why I would want to do such a thing. They thought might take the attention off me. After showing them the slideshow they understood and thought it was a great idea.

         

        It really helped that I showed them some photos of past “All White Weddings” I don’t think they could envision it when I first told them. Also I needed to explain to everyone that the men could wear Khaki Pants, and it was ok if the clothing had some tan or silver accents.

         

        When I first hear the idea I had concerns as well but I am so glad I made the decision to do it.

          Hmm, I personally would not have done it but that's just knowing my and my husband's family.  It's mostly cultural and the "white parties" are an American thing.  I think you have to look at how large your wedding is and the demographic of the party.  Would you be upset if someone didn't comply by the rule??  What if they wore ivory LOL?  Just saying :)  Some people don't know how to follow rules very well :)

            That's the same photo shoot that inspired me. The bridal party have pops of orange and turquoise to stand out though. I love the whole concept and my mom looks at me like I am crazy. I am putting it on my website and will include a dress code in my invites. Hopefully, people will get it and I am sure they will call if they don't.
