I stumbled across this link recently when looking up Kryal Castle in Melbourne:
The couple had a theme wedding at the replica castle. I couldn’t get over their attire page. The outfits they link to are very expensive, and to specify the exact date periods for the costumes and examples of appropriate wear (and inappropriate – god forbid someone just turn up to the wedding wearing nice formal clothes!) seemed a bit outrageous.
Another example of a couple making their wedding day fantasy more important than any consideration for their guests. 1014-11
I have friends who are historical re-enactors and among them they disdainfully refer to any costume not historically accurate as “Farby”. As in “far be it for me to tell you your costume is a joke”. Renting such costumes, assuming you can even find historically accurate costuming, is very expensive. Purchasing a costume can be even more costly. That’s a sad financial burden to place on loved ones as the price of admission to see you wed.
