Trying to be Julia Roberts? Blush and bashful were her signature colors in Steel Magnolias.

My concern would be that it might turn off a lot of men. Also, during that time of year, pink clothing isn't widely available in stores, since pink is usually part of fashion companies' Spring collections, while that time of year the Fall collections are still mostly available (although for women's clothing Resort collections are typically also available). However, IZOD did release a small number of Spring 2017 products last year in mid-November.

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.
What are you 10?

What adult makes such a big deal about their favorite color?

Not for nothing I know many women who would not go to a party where they were required to wear pink.

If I were invited to a party where I was told I had to wear only pink, I would not be attending. I won't buy clothing or shoes for an event that I won't wear or use again. I don't own pink. It's my least favorite color. I can only think of 2 guys I know who own a pink shirt.

Just because you like IZOD doesn't mean anyone else does. Doesn't mean anyone else will buy their items either. Wear what you want and let others wear what they want. It's a party! Lighten up.
As I stated in an earlier post, the pink clothing doesn't have to be IZOD. As long as it is any shade of pink, I would be okay with it.

Are you okay with nobody coming to your party?

Because I don't know any man who will wear pink, only two women that would, and nobody who would wear a certain color to a party where they are required to wear it.

I am considering just encouraging guests to wear pink but not making it a requirement.

Even "encouraging" guests to wear pink comes across as a bit controlling. I know that this is a party to celebrate your birthday, but a good host should strive to make his guests feel as welcome as possible. Presumably your friends already know how you feel about pink - I would not be surprised if you received some pink gifts or at least gifts wrapped in pink. I would not ask your guests to go beyond that to try to control the color they dress in.

Be lavish with pink decorations if you want, but let your guests be comfortable and not feel like they have to purchase clothing the would not otherwise wear for this single event.

It really depends what kind of friends he has. I have a flamboyant friend, I have a transgender friend-- in both situations they have lots of friends that would go along with a party theme.
