Marie Antoinette Themed Wedding!

on Jul 11, 2011 @ 10:59 am

If you were getting ready to tie the knot would you dive in for a themed wedding? Recently, themed weddings are on the rise and I heard a rumour that the most popular theme for weddings these days was actually lady luxury herself Marie Antoinette.

A Marie Antoinette styled wedding involves a dramatic wedding dress,bride's maids dressed as ladies in waiting and a wedding cake adorned in rosettes and pearls! Some couples even request guests come in the style of courtiers, duchesses, dukes and other royalties. 

Would you wed in the style of Marie Antoinette? What do you think of it?

not my style on Jul 11, 2011 @ 11:50 am

I would want my wedding to be traditional and timeless, as oppose to being on the latest band wagon. I don't want to look back on my wedding pics and think 'shit, why'd i do that?'. A traditional timeless wedding is always in style, regardless of the season, year, or latest trend.

On the other hand, I wouldn't mind attending a themed wedding, it looks like it'd be fun! But I'd definitely not want to host one.

I'm more traditional so I think I will stick with the classic and traditional theme. Like what becky said, I would love to attend a themed wedding though that would just be awesome!

I totally agree with you Becky! I actually know a couple who had a Vampire theme... I just don't know. I'm glad my wedding was classic and traditional! I guess it depends on the style of the couple - whether they can pull off the theme or not. At the end of the day, you're still married so it shouldn't matter. BUT ideally you'd like to look at your pictures (even though styles have changed) and think, wow, we had a great day! Not, O-M-G what were we thinking?!

I would have a themed wedding! I like the sounds of Marie Antoinette themed wedding, but I could see a more exotic theme for my day!

What will you think in 20 years? on Jul 12, 2011 @ 05:45 pm

When I was planning my wedding I was really careful to make everything as classic as possible so I wouldn't have to be embarrassed about the photos later on. I think if you want to have a theme, go ahead but consider if it will look foolish later on. I also think you need to consider your guests. If they all have to run out and rent costumes to fit into your theme, it puts a burden on them that really isn't necessary. Why do you need everyone to wear a 19th century hat in order for you to say your marriage vows?

Beachbabe, I can only imagine what that vampire themed wedding looked like. I suspect they will look back on that with some shame in the years to come. At a minimum their kids will probably think it's ridiculous (if they have any).
