Guests Should Dress in What?

ACCORDING TO MISS MANNERS, guests are not required to dress for your fabulous themed wedding.  Yes, I looked it up.  Why would I look up such a thing?  Well, I guess I was just curious.  We often have brides who tell us about their themed weddings.  Most of the time, it is the bride and bridal party who stick to the theme, but from time to time, we get a bride who has requested that her guests also dress in costume.  Particularly, something from the roaring 20′s or rockabilly 50′s.  Pretty tall order, eh?  Now, as the owner of a vintage clothing store, I welcome her guests to shop our vintage collection for the perfect wedding guest attire.  However, as a woman who has been to her fair share of weddings, I wondered if guests are required to dress in costume.  Well despite Miss Manners’ opinion, I do think that everyone dressing in costume, including the guests, sounds pretty fun!

Light the Way

LOOKING FOR A few bright ideas on how to light your wedding reception?  Well first you might want to think about what mood you are trying to evoke.  Are you going for romance?  Rustic?  Al Fresco?  Perhaps it might be a good idea to consider hiring a lighting specialist.  Yep, these people really do exist.  You could probably ask your florist or wedding planner for some names …. oh…and don’t forget to ask for a portfolio.  You will definitely want to see what your soon to be illumination guru has done with other events.  With all that said, it’s always best to bring some ideas of your own.  Here are some gorgeous examples of how others have used a lighting specialist to light the way… Enjoy!
