When it comes to wedding planning, brides often devote countless hours to ensure that every detail aligns perfectly with their vision for the big day. However, one bride’s unconventional dress code has garnered significant backlash, with many deeming it excessive and inconsiderate.

“Controversial Dress Code at Hawaii Wedding Sparks Outrage”

This bride, whose name remains undisclosed, faced criticism after imposing a dress code based on the weight of her guests for her Hawaii wedding in 2019. According to her dress code, women weighing between 100lbs and 160lbs were required to wear a specific ensemble, which included a “green velvet sweater, orange suede pants, red heeled shoes, and a Burberry scarf.” Meanwhile, men in the 100lbs to 200lbs range were instructed to wear a “purple fuzzy jacket, soda hat, white trainers, and carry a plain glow stick.”

However, the dress code took a controversial turn for those exceeding these weight ranges. Women over 160lbs were mandated to don “an all-black sweater and pants with black heels,” while men over 200lbs were told to wear “camouflage and black sneakers.”

The bride initially shared these stringent requirements on Reddit in December 2018, a year ahead of her wedding, but the post recently resurfaced, sparking renewed discussion and criticism.

The post stated: “In anticipation of the wedding, and believe me, I know it’s a long way away, but I would still like to announce the dress code! I am giving you a long notice of a year and a half so that you will have time to find and pick out something nice. The dress code is very specific because it will be used to create an incredible visual effect. If done right, it will make our synchronized dancing along the beach really pop.”

The bride went further to outline specific attire for children, emphasizing that they must be dressed entirely in red to form a heart shape.

The controversial dress code required guests to change into formal attire after the dancing concluded. The bride emphasized that the venue was upscale, urging guests to invest in an outfit valued at least $1,000, which included jewelry, accessories, makeup, and hair, as the wedding was “24k themed.” She gave guests a year and a half to prepare, asserting, “No excuses!”

The dress code’s publication on social media prompted outrage, and one guest shared it, leading to its viral spread. In response to the leak, the bride organized a ‘polygraph party’ in an attempt to identify the culprit who had disclosed her weight-based dress code. She vowed to cut ties with the person responsible and even purchased a polygraph test online for $99.

Ultimately, one of her friends admitted to sharing the dress code, as promised, the bride severed all ties with her. The bride continued with her wedding preparations, with further dress code updates and requests for synchronized dancing outfits.

Responses to the bride’s posts ranged from astonishment to amusement, with many expressing disbelief at the level of detail and control exercised over guests’ attire. Some guests even considered embracing the ‘fat lady’ category just to evade the intricate dress code.

The controversy surrounding this unique dress code underscores the importance of considering guests’ comfort and preferences when planning a wedding, while also emphasizing the need for open communication between couples and their attendees.
