I wanted to see what you all thought of this. I am not doing this but was suggested by my venue coordinator.
We were talking about decor and possibly doing everything in shades of white. Then asking the guests to wear black. So there was a high contrast. My Venue coordinator said that she had her guests wear black to her wedding and all 300 guests did it and it looked great.
I have 2 opinions on this
- Asking people to wear black is kinda like asking people to dress up for a themed party and theme is black.
-It is rude to tell people what to wear and you should never ask that of your guests.
Black is a color most everyone has in their closet so it would be easy for most. I think older people would have issues with this. Our BM dresses are black and my grandma told me black is for funerals and that she didn't like my choice.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you think it is rude? Or would it be the same thing as asking someone to dress according to a theme?
