I was chatting to a pal over the weekend and she was telling me about a fab wedding she’s off to in the next few weeks. The guests have been instructed to wear their finest clobber for the wedding ceremony during the day, and then in the evening the party fun will step up a notch with a fancy dress wedding reception.
The bride and groom are apparently big movie fans, so the chosen fancy dress theme is Old Hollywood glamour. Since the invites started dropping through the door the guests have all been getting their thinking caps on and deciding which fancy dress costume to wear. There are so many fantastic fancy dress outfits available these days, the trouble can be narrowing down which of the many costumes would suit you best.
What a fun idea for making sure your wedding reception is truly an event to remember for all your guests. Having your guests come in fancy dress is a fabulous ice breaker, which can prove helpful when you’re bringing people from all the different areas of your life together in celebration. You could even offer a small prize such as a trophy for the most ingenious interpretation of the fancy dress theme.
If you do decide to go down the fancy dress wedding reception route, the first step is to decide on a particular fancy dress theme so your guests know where to begin on their costume hunt. Is there something of which you and your spouse-to-be are particularly fond? A genre of music or film perhaps, or a specific era or historical period? With the amazing range of great quality dressing up costumes available at Party Domain, there’s a host of fancy dress ideas and inspiration just waiting to be discovered at our unbeatable online shop.
