I knew someone who did something similar (although it was a different color). She was really upset when the day came and not a single person showed up. Might work for a child's birthday party, but, it did not go over well with her adult friends.

The problem with buying several T-shirts is knowing to buy the right sizes. Also what if they don't show up? Wasted money.

As stated, perhaps I can encourage the guests to wear pink, but not make it a requirement. I won't make anyone wear IZOD either.

Black/white with OP providing an assortment of pink accessories to choose from on arrival? Bow ties, brooches, hair bands, suspenders, scarves, hats? Of course only OP knows if his friends would be the type to willingly participate in something of the sort.

Theme parties are big where I live, it would be a hit.
That is a great idea to help ensure no one is left out.

I have heard of people do thing and it working out. It depends on the freinds being invited.

How does that make a party more enjoyable for your guests?

What does anyone think about this idea? Note that I would not mandate any specific shade of pink, since some people may prefer darker shades of pink.
Thirty years old!!!! Good grief, surely black is the only appropriate color for such an occasion.

My wardrobe is almost entirely black and gray - I hate bothering with matching stuff!

What about the money you are expecting your guests who don't normally wear pink to spend in order to attend your party? That's just as wasted.
