Why I'm Asking Women to Wear White to My Wedding



Hello my lovelies! Apologies that I haven’t been able to write a lot lately, studying for exams and prepping the wedding have been consuming my time- which brings me to this current blog topic.

For my wedding’s dress code I asked female party guest to please wear black or white gowns (or black/white combo dress) on the day of. I’ll list below the reasons why I choose this color scheme, but wanted to first touch upon the range of negative reaction I’ve been receiving about my choice. Ranging from, “Well you’re not seriously wanting people to wear white”- why yes or I wouldn’t have put it on my invite. To the “I could never do that to you, it’s like upstaging the bride or something”- cue my eye roll.

Now I know we’re in our early twenties and therefore haven’t had the opportunity to attend a ton of weddings yet, but when a couple writes down their dress code for their wedding not only is that what they would like but there also might be a reason for it. So go along with it and have fun! I most certainly do NOT want to be staring out into a sea of depressing black and know that it was because my guests were too “scared” to wear white.
