This is (as I’m sure you’ve noticed) going to be a theme wedding.  This means that Herself and Himself will both be in costume, as will most of the wedding party.  This does not mean that you have to, but you’re more than welcome to do so, and might find it fun as well!

 

The wedding is a faerie theme, and there are as many different ideas of what a faerie looks like as there are people, so don’t feel like you’re stuck with glitter and wings (although if that’s what you want to do, go for it!).  We have a few ideas on the theme tab, so click back there and take a look, then come back here when you’re done.

 

We’ll wait.

 

Okay, back?  Have some neat ideas for what you’d like to wear?  Excellent!  Before you go running off to Jo-Anne’s or the nearest charity shop, here are a couple of guidelines.

 

No weapons, please.  That greatsword you got really does look cool, but this is a celebration of love, and having our audience bristling with weapons isn’t really very loving, you know?

No high-heeled shoes.  This is a recommendation; we’re going to be outside for the entire day, and the ground will probably still be pretty soft.  Heels will sink in and be very uncomfortable, not to mention not really good for the garden.

We’ll be outside all day (this is a recording…) , so you’ll want to wear something that’s okay to be outside in, with the wind, possibly some mud.  Definitely grass.

Be creative, have fun with it, but don’t feel forced.  If you really want to dress as Tinkerbell, go for it.  If you’d really like to rock the three-piece suit, please do!  This is about having a good time, so don’t let the theme get in your way.

 

Etsy is a great place to look for clothing ideas, as are Renstore.com and Medieval Collectibles. You can also find stuff on Ebay; just search for “renfaire clothing” or “SCA Clothing” for ideas!
