Can We Set a Dress Code for Our Vendors?

Your wedding is your special event. And while there may be tons of wedding rules you can leave behind, there are also many etiquette tips that still make perfect sense – even now, in the 21st century. For example, can you (and should you) set a dress code for your wedding vendors? If yes, how to do this in a polite and respectful way?


We have gathered some tips to help you on this. Continue reading and find out more!

  • This is your Big Day and if you plan on having a really fancy event, you are more than free to tell your wedding vendors about it. These people are true professionals and they will definitely want to make sure you are fully happy with everything they provide – including their attire. Likewise, don’t be afraid to tell your vendors to keep it low-key with the attire as well, especially if you don’t want to make them feel bad for overdressing for a more informal event.
  • Not only is it recommended that you talk to your vendors about their attires, but most of them will actually be one step ahead of you and they will ask you from the very beginning what your dress code will be. And, if they don’t, simply bring it up in a casual, yet straightforward way. They will be more than understanding of your choice.
  • Keep in mind that not all vendors will stay for the reception, so they are not all obliged to wear whatever standard you may set. For example, your florist or your baker may simply stop by to deliver their products and they will most likely wear something casual, but comfortable (so that they can handle the manual work).
