Matching Family Outfits - Post Pictures!

Please tell me I'm not alone. I love dressing my family in matching outfits, and -believe it or not- my husband actually agrees and goes along with it!

Sometimes we wear matching or identical styles, and other days we just agree to wear the same color. In 2006, I even got our 18 person grand gathering to go along!

If you have the same notion... please post your matching family pictures here too. (craziness loves company!)

The Hawaiian outfits came from the Disney Store. My daughters "shirt" was a size 4T dress that she wore for years... the shorter it got, the better it looked with leggings.

I got away with it twice - once with our Mickey Tie Dyes at MK and then with Epcot shirts I made on the 25th anniv. Both times I got the pics and then DH changed!

DD and I also also matched in lime green tshirts w/ Tink on them our 1st MK day (rainy didn't want to do the mickey shirts that day).

We do it all the time too. We did it alot on our Disney cruises. I don't have those pictures loaded. But on our recent trip to WDW, I did it.

This is the only picture I can find right now. I have a bunch more, but my husband has probably hidden them from me.

Y'all look great! I voted "I would if DH would let me." I did get him to wear matching P&PP shirts I made (from the Creative DISigns thread on this board) for us while DD wore her princess gown. And I've made 9 matching shirts for the whole clan in May. The guys are already groaning!

My husband doesn't really like the idea of it, but when we get home & he sees the pictures, he really likes it. I have to kinda remind him all the time.

My husband went along with it...1 day anyway :-)

Here we are - I wish I had made more matching shirts, we got so many favorable comments on them!

I even wore my lime green mickey 'stuff' and never saw anybody else!

Yes, I love when we coordinate! DH & DS12 know to ask what color day it is before they get dressed while on vacation! ...or they will have to change if for some strange reason they don't ask and read my mind wrong.

Blue Strip Day

Green Day... (On another green day DS thought it would be funny to wear his brown Green Day (the band) shirt... )

Red Day

I don't have pictures yet because our trip isn't until March 24th but I have 3 sets of shirts-one for MK,AK and DHS that I made with the help of the incredible designers here. I love how the shirts came out and I can't wait to wear them at WDW.

Fun pictures!

We do a fair amount of dressing the kids alike or at least in matching color schemes. But dh and I haven't really gotten on board with it, and here's why -

My DSis & BIL went to WDW on their honeymoon many years ago. We call BIL Eeyore, because of his speech & mannerisms. Well, he got the funniest video clip that's a classic in our family. There was this large group all dressed alike in yellow & black striped polo shirts. The camera followed them on their way for a bit, and then BIL intoned in his Eeyore voice, "There goes the Bumble Bee Family...."

So of course when we started planning this trip for the whole extended family, including Sis & bil, we never even thought of doing matching shirts for everyone. Figured there's no way we'd ever get away with it! But we did plan a few for the kids. We got matching Hawaiian shirts/dresses for them all from Disney online, and then DH decided he liked it so well he wanted one. Then we decided to make matching tees for all the kids for a couple other days, and lo and behold, the men wanted them too!

So, long story longer, all 17 of us are going to have matching safari hat Mickey tees for our Grand Gathering Safari at AK this spring!

DF and I always match when we go. We make
T-shirts about a month before we go and get really excited. As soon as we have a family, you can bet that we'll all be matching!

My husband use to think the matching shirts were wierd till we traveled up to Canada, and I happened to lay out the same shirt for all of us. (From Summer VBS) Now he's converted. It made him more at ease with what to do if we lost her. It's easy to say she's wearing the same shirt we are. It also makes it easy to find people in a crowd, and you are less likely to forget what everyone else is wearing if you get seperated.
