The event started as a casual get-together among friends and their acquaintances. François Pasquier, the founder, continues to organize it in France even after 30 years. When he returned to France, he wanted to reconnect with friends, but his backyard was too small. So, he decided to host it at the local park and encouraged his friends to bring along someone new, allowing him to meet more people.

Dress Code for Diner En Blanc. Back in 1988, Francois Pasquier had a brilliant idea: hosting a fancy dinner outdoors. He wanted everyone to wear white. Now, Diner en Blanc is celebrated in 120+ cities, with secret locations. So, what’s the dress code? Simple: all white! And here are some tips to rock the event, no matter your age. Dress to impress!

Just wanted to let you know that there are a bunch of rules for this event, but don’t worry, they’re all in place to make sure everyone has an awesome time. Make sure to read them all and feel free to ask others who’ve been before any questions you may have. Oh, and don’t forget, you’ll need two tickets to get in, and you gotta come in pairs. Rain or shine, this event is happening! And since it’s a formal affair, you definitely want to look sharp. How about rocking a stylish silk blouse and a skirt? You’ll be turning heads for sure!

Comfortable Shoes. If you’re rocking a new white dress for Diner en Blanc, make sure to pair it with comfy shoes that match your style. You’ll look super chic in all-white but avoid stilettos to prevent blisters. First-timers, grab some comfy walking shoes!

Hey ladies, make sure to pick comfy shoes that can handle the heat and mud. Fellas, go for something a bit sleeker, such as a slip on. Remember, comfort is key for everyone! Bring flats for the event, but pack heels for later. Check out Pinterest for shoe inspo!

Accessorize. If you want to accessorize for Diner en Blanc, here are a few accessories to try. For this white-only dinner, you can wear any hairpiece, face paint, or body art you want. Some participants even go so far as to create DIY flower crowns. Coordinating your accessories with the table leader is a great way to make the night a little more festive and fun.

For a friendly and stylish look, go for pure white attire. Don’t be afraid to mix it up with pearls and metallic pieces. Linen is also a classic choice, especially when paired with pearls. To stand out, opt for white textured clothing. And if it’s chilly, add a faux fur jacket or a flowing scarf. For extra warmth, a fur coat or scarf will do the trick!
